Helping children one eagle at a time.

Disadvantaged children live in every community across the nation. Eagles for Children gives everyone the opportunity to take that prideful moment experienced on the golf course, scoring an eagle, and use it to impact local disadvantaged children.

Members of participating clubs pledge a nominal amount for every eagle scored on their course during the season. 100 percent of the proceeds from Eagles go to organizations serving children in the members’ own communities chosen by the participating club.

Eagles for Children is a simple, fun and engaging program that unites your club for a common cause … THE KIDS!

The idea of using one great moment on the golf course, “an eagle,” to benefit thousands – or potentially millions of children in need, inspired Hal Zaima and Don Kegley, friends and life-long golf enthusiasts, to test the Eagles for Children program at Oakland Hills Country Club in 2012.img-PH-our-story-callout Three other area clubs agreed to join, and by the end of the season, the clubs had raised nearly $40,000, which was awarded to 14 different children’s charities in the Detroit Metropolitan area.

Eagles for Children is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting local charities for disadvantaged youth through partnerships with private golf clubs.

The Eagles for Children concept is simple: each member pledges to donate a minimum of $2 for every eagle scored by members and their families at their club. On a monthly basis, each club sends their proceeds to Eagles for Children.

With Eagles for Children’s stunning inaugural success, Zaima, Kegley and other committee members are working closely with clubs in an effort to expand the program across Michigan and the US.

Eagles for Children is a simple, fun, and engaging program that connects our good play and let’s us do this together … FOR THE KIDS!
