The Club Foundation 2018 Scholarship Recipients


The Club Foundation provides funding for professional development opportunities throughout the life cycle of a club manager's career, beginning at the university level and continuing through the executive level. Since inception in 1988, more than $8 million has been distributed back into the club industry through The Club Foundation’s Scholarship and Grant Program. The Club Foundation strives to continue to promote the professional development of club managers far into the future. Scroll down for more information on all the Foundation’s Scholarships.



Chapters

Throughout the year, The Club Foundation supports CMAA’s Chapters with funds from the Excellence in Education Awards, Chapter of the Year Awards, New Member Recruitment and Chapter Workshop Grants.

Chapter Workshop Grant Program

The Club Foundation is pleased to offer the Chapter Workshop Grant Program to CMAA Chapters. Each year, during the Managers Awards Luncheon at Annual Conference, The Club Foundation randomly draws three chapter names, one from each size category of Small, Medium and Large. All chapter names are automatically entered into the drawing and the winning chapters receive an education workshop completely free of charge.

The speakers participating in the program have agreed to an all-inclusive package, to be paid by The Club Foundation. This will encompass speaker fees, travel expenses or other workshop-related expenses. By participating in the program, the speaker has agreed not to charge the Chapter any additional fees for doing the workshop.



Club Managers

The core of The Club Foundation’s mission is to help fund the professional development opportunities for club managers. CF does this through four signature scholarships for club managers: James B. Singerling Scholarship, Sally Burns Rambo Scholarship, Willmoore H. Kendall Scholarship, and the LaRocca Family Executive Scholarship.

Past Recipents

“I’d like to thank my fellow members of our great association for their dedication and commitment to the success of CMAA’s philanthropic arm, The Club Foundation. Due to your generosity, you all have provided many “first” for Club Managers…whether it was attending their first BMI or World Conference like myself at the 90th World Conference in Orlando…without your devotion for seeing your peers succeed, none of this would be possible. And for that, myself and all other scholarship recipients would like to thank you for helping us reach milestones within our careers. I must admit, it’s very exciting and humbling to be a part of an association that understands in order to move forward as an industry, we must invest in others.”

Past Recipents

“As a two-time Joe Perdue scholarship recipient and 2018 Kendall scholarship recipient, I fully appreciate the value of these programs funded by The Club Foundation. My career aspirations formed at a young age and without the financial support of The Club Foundation, I would not be where I am today. From the financial assistance I received, I was able to put myself through college, attend distant conferences, achieve my CCM designation, and help fund my dream. As a result, I've recently become a general manager of a private club. I am incredibly grateful for the generous support of the Club Foundation and encourage everyone to give back to those future leaders most in need. I am living proof that your donation makes a difference and I’m forever grateful for the invaluable opportunities I have received through The Club Foundation.”
