...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

Increase the number of veterans and their families that we can help to heal, transition, grow and thrive on the homefront. Reunite more combat veterans and save lives. Facilitate more golf fundraising events and involve more veterans in the events. Focus our fund raising efforts toward an immediate impact for veterans and their families, targeting our efforts across the most pressing areas of need (physical, psychological and emotional) – with priority emphasis in supporting PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury treatment, suicide prevention, golf & sports rehabilitation, employment, housing & homelessness, and family & caregiver support.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

Using golf fundraising events as our primary tool, we honor, remember, respect, and support all who serve(d) in the Armed Forces. We do this by providing event coordination support to empower local chapters and volunteers to host fundraising events; provide grants that impact not only veterans but their families also; support organizations that are providing critically needed services for veterans and their families; and maintain our governance of less than 5% of our proceeds goes to administrative expenses.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

The national office assists with business development, sponsors, operations, event management, veteran outreach, finance, grants, marketing, and communications. However, we rely on the support of many volunteers, sponsors, golf courses, and partners throughout the U.S.A. to help us accomplish our mission.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

Less than 5% goes to organizational overhead. Audits and financial reports are maintained for each event. Board meetings are held every quarter to check on financials, needs, etc. Reviews and comparisons are evaluated to improve business practices.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

Tee It Up for the Troops has donated over $10 million since 2005 in support of treatment of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury, housing & homelessness, suicide prevention, employment, family and caregiver support, and sports rehabilitation for veterans. We have also reunited more than 300 combat veterans through our REUNION outreach program.
