The First Tee of Monterey County
Quail Men's Golf Association:
Donors & Champions
The Men’s Golf Association at Quail Lodge has been long-time supporters. For years, the MGA has collaborated to collect donations of used clubs and balls that they bring for the youth at our chapter. Moreover, they have worked together to provide many High School seniors with scholarships for college. Quail is the most supportive local club due to its TFTMC ambassadors Dave Barrett and Dave Buckingham.
Pay It Forward Program
Donor, Advisor, and Philanthropist
Bruce learned about Pay It Forward while catching up with fellow Stanford Alumni and former Pay It Forward Program Director, Tim McCarthy. Inspired by what he heard, Bruce offered to fund a scholarship. Since that time he has funded several more as well as coming to speak with our scholars about relationship-building and the power of mentoring. We are proud to be one of the many recipients of Bruce’s generosity as he “pays forward” his success.

Eagles for Education
The 2019 PURE Insurance Championship Team Tanigawa/Iniakov won $20,000 for the Chevron STEM scholarship program in the team's name! Chevron’s Eagles for Education initiative and partnership with the PURE Insurance Championship exemplify the company’s ongoing commitment to increasing STEM education quality and access. Chevron provides resources, such as the STEM Zone, to encourage students to pursue STEM careers, and to train these future leaders in skills crucial to the well-paying jobs of the future. Chevron’s Eagles for Education program has raised over $7.2 million for non-profits such as The First Tee since 2011.
We are deeply grateful to the foundations, corporate citizens and individual members of our community, whose trust and generous investments in our work make it possible for us to offer opportunities for a brighter future for our youth in Monterey County. Each of them understands that when our youth succeed, we all do.
We thank them for their support of the Future Citizens Foundation.
