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


Save the Date

























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 will take place Friday, September 29, 2017, at The Golf Club Fossil Creek in north Fort Worth. Because this is a an anniversary event, we will host 2 flights of teams; with the first starting at 8:00 a.m. and the second starting at 1:30 p.m.  The first 20 paid teams registering for each flight are guaranteed a place in that flight.

Last year we cleared over $42,000 ($272,000 total since 2008) for scholarship awards, and we plan for this year to be even more successful. We invite you to join us for this worthwhile occasion as a golfer, a sponsor, a volunteer, or a donor.
