The supportive clubs across Massachusetts have been the cornerstone of our ability to award substantial Scholarships. Especially in these tough times, you make an even greater difference in keeping Scholars in the classroom. We thank you for the continued support of your membership and your promotion of the Ouimet Fund’s mission!
The growth of the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund can be linked to the longstanding relationships between the clubs and the Ouimet Fund. The Bag Tag program continues to be “the backbone” of The Fund.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the nearly 100 clubs who have annually supported our Bag Tag program. At each club, members make a tax-deductible donation and receive their Ouimet Bag Tag for the season. This is The Fund’s primary fundraising vehicle and has been since 1955. The tradition of the members supporting the Ouimet Bag Tag program has led to substantial Ouimet Scholarship assistance directly impacting 5,600+ fantastic young Ouimet Scholars. The Fund continues its commitment to award all Bag Tag donations as the first dollars in the annual Scholarship pool.
Clubs across the state have the opportunity to distinguish themselves among their peers through increased support in the Centennial Club program. In turn, our Club Relations Committee and staff are also thrilled to increase recognition of these Centennial Clubs of the Bag Tag Program.
In the first two years of the program, 27 clubs have joined in with an increased per member donation and a multi-year commitment through 2018. Members received beautiful club name engraved metal Bag Tags, a Francis & Eddie statuette for their club, and recognition at Ouimet events and in publications.
Coupling the Bag Tag Program with the tremendous growth of the Endowed Scholarship program will be the two pillars for The Fund in reaching toward a goal of $2 Million in annual scholarships in the near future.
