Founded in April 2020 as a 501(c)(3), The Sawgrass Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation is dedicated to the support of the Sawgrass Country Club (“SGCC”) staff and their families to include educational stipends, crisis relief assistance and other charitable opportunities to help our employees.
The Sawgrass Foundation will collect tax-deductible contributions from the members of SGCC and others who are interested in supporting SGCC employees in need.
The Sawgrass Foundation will make distributions to employees of SGCC and their families for purposes that qualify under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code including, but not limited to,
- Educational stipends for courses and degrees after high school from schools recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as qualifying for the Federal Student Loan Program, see https://ope.ed.gov/dapip/#/home.
- Assistance, cash or otherwise, during declared national crises or acute hardship situations where an SGCC employee experiences economic or personal emergencies.
