Sponsoring The Congressional Award Golf Classic is a great way to support America’s youth.

The tournament is open to golfers and non-golfers alike and is a prime opportunity to advance your organization's mission.

All sponsors are recognized in event publications, listed on The Congressional Award website, and provided with professional photos.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the youth and development of our program – the only charity of the U.S. Congress.
