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

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 10th annual golf tournament took place Friday, September 29, 2017, at The Golf Club Fossil Creek in north Fort Worth. Because this was an anniversary event, we hosted 2 flights of teams; with the first starting at 8:00 a.m. and the second at 1:30 p.m.

This year’s 10th anniversary event cleared over $38,000 ($310,460 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 2018. 

Our next “Chip-in” for Education Golf Classic will take place Friday, October 5, 2018, at The Golf Club Fossil Creek.
