From now until February 15, 2019, EHTC is accepting proposals from community organizations as to why they should become the recipient of this year’s 32nd Annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing. The outing, which will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at Scott Lake Country Club in Comstock Park, MI, is an opportunity to raise money for a local organization where the money from the event would significantly impact the charity.

To be considered as the 2019 Chipping for Charity recipient, please submit the following:

  • Most recent annual financial statements
  • Copy of Form 990
  • Literature explaining what the organization does
  • Board of Directors listing
  • How the money will be used
  • How many of your organization's volunteers will be willing to participate (typically 6-8 requested)
  • A mailing list to send invitations

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 send charity donors and volunteers invitations
  • The organization would participate in the event (with volunteers, etc.)

To submit a proposal for the upcoming 2019 Chipping for Charity, not-for-profit organizations must send in their proposal by February 15, 2019 to:


EHTC, Attn: Chipping for Charity, 2301 East Paris Avenue SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546
