GolfStatus & Dormie Network Foundation Team Up for Year Four of the Play It Forward Give Back Campaign

Contest Awards $10,000 Donation to a Golf Fundraiser Plus Exclusive Golf Stay & Play Package to Nominator


Now in its fourth year, the campaign is a unique opportunity to “play” it forward. Individuals are invited to nominate a charity or nonprofit raising money through golf to receive a $10,000 donation to its golf tournament. The nominator of the winning golf event will receive a Dormie Network Stay and Play Package, good for a two-day, one-night stay at one of its private destination golf clubs.

“Play It Forward celebrates golf’s incredible capacity to do good through thousands of charity golf tournaments that raise mission-critical funds for organizations of all types and sizes,” says Brian Schenk, Chief Philanthropy Officer at Dormie Network Foundation. “This campaign demonstrates our companies’ collective, ongoing commitment to moving nonprofit causes forward.”

Play It Forward has contributed $40,000 to four nonprofits since its inception in 2021.

  • 2023: Avery’s Hope. Avery’s Hope is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization that provides financial assistance to rare, ultra-rare, and undiagnosed pediatric GI patient families. A Top Golf fundraiser was chosen to be more inclusive for the patients and families the nonprofit serves.
  • 2022: Sisters Across America and Make-A-Wish Foundation. Sisters Across America provides support and mentoring for young minority women pursuing professional golfing careers and teaching juniors to grow the game, raising money through two annual golf fundraisers. Make-A-Wish of Philadelphia, Delaware, and Susquehanna Valley’s Pro-Am for Wishes raises money to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
  • 2021: Cameron Steinberg Foundation. Created by the parents of Cameron Steinberg, who passed away at just two months old from hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the Foundation raises money for research into congenital heart defects and resources for patients and families. Using golf as its primary fundraising vehicle, the Foundation has raised over $200,000 in four years.

The contest launches May 27 and nominations will be accepted through July 4. Winners will be announced via press release and on GolfStatus’ and Dormie Network’s social media channels by August 31.
