Golfing Fore the Students

Funeral directors and allied professionals of all skill levels gather each year for the shotgun scramble, which is held in conjunction with the annual NFDA International Convention & Expo. Now in its twenty-first year, the Funeral Service Foundation’s annual Golf Classic has raised nearly $1.5 million in support of our mission of investing in people and programs to strengthen funeral service and lift up grieving communities.

About the Tournaments

No two Golf Classic tournaments are the same. Over the last two decades, players have dedicated the day’s play in memory of beloved colleagues, teed off at premier courses on beautiful mornings, endured day-of-weather cancellations, switched venues to an indoor format, and even took the event to a virtual platform to give generously and enjoy the day!

No matter where, when, how, (or if!) the outing is held, what never waivers is the signature event’s heart and soul. Players come together to honor the profession they highly regard and to celebrate a mission that supports their meaningful and important work.

2020 Covid Response

While we couldn’t gather on the links in person in 2020, we’re grateful for our supporters who “chipped in” for our virtual Golf Classic. More than 60 organizations and individuals joined Major Co-Benefactors CFS and Dodge in answering the call to give “fore” the students. Together, we raised $130,000 in support of academic scholarships for students pursuing an education in funeral service.
