Every year, EHTC chooses a different local charity each year as the recipient of their annual Chipping for Charity golf outing. This event, now entering its 30th year of existence, will be held at Scott Lake Country Club on September 20, 2017. Deciding which charity will benefit from the golf outing is always difficult because there are so many worthy causes in West Michigan. However, this is also a rewarding task for us at EHTC because it is one area where we truly pride ourselves in giving to the community. We hope to make this the most successful year yet as we celebrate THIRTY YEARS of EHTC Chipping for Charity Golf Outing!

In 2016, Chipping for Charity raised $11,300 for Women's Resource Center. Previous years' events raised $10,000 for Ele's Place, $6,000 for South End Community Outreach Ministries (SECOM), and $10,400 for Hospice of Michigan James B. Fahner M.D. Pediatric Hospice Care Program. To view a complete list of past participants, click here.

EHTC is now accepting proposals from organizations as to why their not-for-profit should become the next recipient for EHTC's 2017 Chipping for Charity.

Please submit the following information in order to be considered:

  • Most recent annual financial statements

  • Copy of Form 990

  • Literature explaining what the organization does

  • Board of Directors listing

  • How the money would be used

  • If/how many of your organization's volunteers would be willing to participate

Below are some of EHTC's guidelines used in selecting a not-for-profit:

  • The money would significantly impact the charity

  • The money would stay locally

  • EHTC would be able to use a list of individuals in order to send golf outing invitations

  • The organization would participate in the event (getting golfers to participate, providing volunteers the day of the event, etc.)

TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL FOR THE UPCOMING 2017 CHIPPING FOR CHARITY, NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS MUST SEND IN THEIR PROPOSAL BY February 28, 2017.

Mail proposals to:

EHTC
Attn:  Chipping for Charity
