Jacksonville Area Golf Association launches Friends of JAGA fundraising

The Jacksonville Area Golf Association (JAGA) has introduced its first-ever fundraising initiative, called the Friends of JAGA. Funds raised will meet the association’s administrative costs, enhance its programs and allow the organization to grow, as well as help fund JAGA’s scholarship program, according to JAGA President Jeff Adams.

“Since its founding in 1954, JAGA has made significant contributions to the growth and promotion of golf while providing financial assistance to hundreds of college-bound students in northeast Florida,” Adams said. “The leadership of JAGA feels very strongly that the time is right to be proactive by seeking new means of financial support.”

For years, the primary means of funding JAGA operations has been entry fees and member club dues.

In announcing the fundraising campaign, Adams honored Fred Seely as the first Friend of JAGA. Seely is a three-term president of JAGA in 1983, 2016 and 2017 and founder of the Underwood Cup.

“I’m happy to become the first person to publicly pledge my support for the Friends program,” Seely said.

A minimum gift of $25 entitles a person to become a Friend of JAGA. Those who contribute $100 or more will receive one premium “Coreline” personalized Friend of JAGA bag tag for every $100 donated.
