NEEDHAM GOLF CLUB CHARITIES 

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. 

Since its inception in 2003, NGCC has funded over $200,000 to organizations in Needham including more than $145,000 in scholarships to Needham High School graduates. In 2019 NGCC will again be funding scholarships to Needham High School graduates. 

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. 

Charles River Center – The Charles River Center is a nonprofit social service agency that has been providing advocacy and a variety of services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. Annually supply t-shirts for the Charles River Ellie Bloom Olympics and helps underwrite major fund-raising campaigns. 

Needham Community Council – The Needham Community Council is a private non-profit organization that supports people in Needham who have under-met health, educational or social needs. Regularly offer financial assistance when needs arise. 

Stanley Tippett House – The Stanley Tippett House in Needham provides care for terminally ill individuals who want hospice care but are unable to continue living in their own homes. When there is a need, NGCC tries to fulfill the requests, including past donations of a commercial ice maker and power generator. 

Needham Coalition for Suicide Prevention – The Needham Coalition for Suicide Prevention works within the fabric of the community to reinforce the ability of families, schools, churches and peer networks to help distressed individuals not to feel alone, to see options in their lives and to know they have a future.

Needham High School Athletic Teams - Contribute to their fund raising efforts. 

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.
