Special Events

First Command Educational Foundation conducts a number of special events to raise funds to support our mission, “to educate those who serve.”

“Chip-in for Education” Golf Classic

The 2020 Golf Tournament will take place September 25, 2020, at the Golf Club Fossil Creek.

Welcome, and thanks for visiting “Chip-in” for Education. Raising funds is always a challenge, but especially so when it comes to dollars for scholarship awards. To help raise these funds, FCEF holds an annual golf tournament. Our 12th annual golf tournament took place Friday, November 15, 2019, at The Golf Club Fossil Creek in north Fort Worth.  Although we had to reschedule the tournament this year due to rain, we had a full course of golfers and the weather on the substitute date was perfect,

Our last tournament cleared just over $65,000 ($397,260 total since 2008) for scholarship awards. We invite you to to view our photos and check out the sponsor list from this event.  Thanks to all those who participated, and we look forward to another successful event in 2020.
