IWGA mission: Founded in 1933, the IWGA is an all-volunteer
organization devoted to advancing golf opportunities for the women
and girls of Illinois by conducting state championship tournaments
and through fundraising to support charitable contributions to
individual and organizations that embody the spirit of amateur golf.
In addition to running three state championship tournaments each
year, the all-volunteer IWGA, through its charitable giving,
actively supports women's golf teams in Illinois public colleges,
the Evans Scholars Foundation, programs for veterans, the Susan G.
Komen Foundation and the Mills Breast Cancer Institute.
Annually, IWGA awards the Julia Dodds Scholarship to an
outstanding junior golfer.
Funding for these and other charitable contributions comes
primarily from clubs and associations sponsoring an annual Victory
Tournament. Grants totaled more than $23,000 in 2006.
Entry forms, past tournament results, scholarship eligibility and
charitable giving information, and IWGA board members' names are
available at www.iwga.org.
