MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The Glen Gives is Awbrey Glen Golf Clubís own non-profit organization providing assistance to local deserving families in need. Started in 2004, over $800,000 has been raised for 1,300 families with one-time assistance.  Unique to Glen Gives, 100% of monies raised goes directly to our recipients.  All overhead is contributed through the generosity of committee members.

 

OUR MISSION

We assist Central Oregon families who are experiencing short-term financial difficulties and have demonstrated a willingness to help themselves.  Our goal is to help these families achieve self-sufficiency and increased family stability. 

 

  • All families must have children and be nominated by local social service agencies.

  • Applications are reviewed by a team of Glen Gives volunteers. Funds are allocated based on need and consistency with our goals.

     

    HOW WE HELP

  • We have helped families avoid homelessness by paying for rent, mortgage payments, rental deposits.

  • We allow people to remain employed with car repairs, gas cards, tire and auto purchases, uniform payments and training for programs/classes.

  • We have made utility payments, purchased firewood, beds, groceries, warm clothing and medical equipment.

  • All payments are made directly to the provider of the service (landlord, repair shop, utility provider).

    HOW THE MONEY IS RAISED

  • Direct financial contributions to The Glen Gives.

  • Proceeds from the annual Glen Gives Event, a small plate tasting and charity auction.
