Needham Golf Club Charities (NGCC) is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2003. The mission of NGCC is to support the Needham community by funding scholarships to graduating Needham High School seniors and to support various Needham based community and charitable organizations.

Included among the Needham based charitable and community organizations supported by NGCC are:
Needham Steps Up Program – Needham Steps Up's mission is to bridge the opportunity gap for income eligible Needham Public School students through mentoring and educational support that help make college and post-secondary success a reality. NGCC sponsors a student mentor and is proud to be the sole Summa Cum Laude sponsor.

Our fundraising is solely dependent upon our annual fall golf tournament, private donations and other fund raising activities held throughout the year. Nearly 100% of all funds raised are used for scholarships and community support.
