The Arizona Women's Golf Association (AWGA) was founded in 1924 for the purpose of promoting and maintaining the best interest and true spirit of the game of golf among women in the state or Arizona. Now 85 years strong, AWGA's 25,000 members can pride ourselves on being Arizona's premier women's golf association, recognized nationally and locally as effective agents and advocates for women and women's golf.
Our importance and impact 85 years later is unquestionable! The AWGA, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is the only statewide Arizona women's golf organization and one of the largest women's membership organizations in Arizona. The AWGA plays a pivotal role in facilitating access to golf instruction for all women whether they are first timers who want to see for themselves what the game is really about or veteran golfers who never tire of trying to improve their game and lower their scores.
Philanthropically, the AWGA is expanding its reach and impact. In 2009, it launched its first annual giving campaign, allowing members to support both the mission and vision of the AWGA through annual gifts designed to broaden AWGA's role in and impact on the community.
The annual giving campaign is a foundation of our new philanthropic strategy, giving members and supporters an annual vehicle for making a tax-deductible gift to grow and preserve the
AWGA legacy for our daughters, granddaughters and women across the state.
