Fundraising isn’t easy. As a conservation nonprofit, the TWRF strives to make every dollar count. That’s why our partnership with Delek is so important. The Delek Fund for Hope allows us to participate in a top-notch fundraising event, where virtually all of the legwork is done for us! Since 2017 Delek’s Fund for Hope has raised thousands of dollars to drive our conservation mission. The funds raised at this event help support our Tennessee Outdoor Youth Summit, where each summer, 100 high school-aged youth participate in an intensive, week-long camp focused on conservation education and instilling in them a respect and admiration for all wild things. We are proud to partner with an organization like Delek that shares our core values for conservation.

Last year’s event was an incredible experience for our organization! The Tournament For Hope raised around $21,000.00 for our organization. It allowed us to help a lot of people in Glen Rose, TX with medical bills and we were able to give 22 scholarships to help students pay for college. The Delek Fund for Hope was so well organized and helped so many organizations in our small community. We hope for many more years of working together!!!
The Tennessee Golf Foundation has been so fortunate to have participated in the Delek Tournament for Hope since its inception. We value our Delek relationship as a true partnership – they are world class business leaders in their fields of endeavor and the TGF is a national leader in youth golf and core values development. The First Tee and our children of Ft. Campbell soldiers have benefited through the funds that Delek has provided. Golf is simply the hook and the vehicle for us to teach the core values of life to our young participants. Many people do not know the fact that the Delek Tournament for Hope is the single largest fund raising annual tournament in Tennessee – larger charitable proceeds than even the PGA Tour’s St. Jude Classic!

For the past few years, we at Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury have been blessed to be chosen as an invitational charity with the Delek Tournament for Hope. Prior to this opportunity, we hosted our own golf tournaments, and although we did well financially, the planning, logistics, and time spent on the tournament was grueling and the net result was disappointing. Events, especially those as large and well-run as the Delek Fund for Hope, do more than just generate money. They promote our mission and share the great work we are doing in our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to join the Delek team and enjoy the benefits of a golf tournament without the burden and expense of running the event ourselves. As a smaller, self-sufficient affiliate charity, this tournament is a tremendous blessing.

Nashville Children’s Alliance has been fortunate to participate and partner with the Delek Fund for Hope for the past 6 years. Not only is it a huge return for us financially but it is one of the events that our staff and board fully support and look forward to attending every year. It has been a pleasure to work with the staff at the Delek Fund for Hope as they make it so easy for us to raise money with this event. This truly is an opportunity of a lifetime for our agency and our hopes are to participate in a more impactful way every year.
