In addition to running three state
championship tournaments each year, the all-volunteer IWGA, through
its charitable giving, actively supports women and girl golfers of
all ages and skill levels through our Victory Endowment Fund. Annual
contributions include grants to women's golf teams in Illinois'
public colleges, stipends to USGA Junior qualifiers and State Team
members. The IWGA also honors a junior golfer of outstanding
character, scholarship, and sportsmanship with the prestigious Julia
Dodds Junior Award. Funding for these and other charitable
contributions comes primarily from clubs and associations sponsoring
an annual Victory Tournament. Grants totaled more than $35,000 in
2013 with contributions from the IWGA Victory Fund surpassing
