The Game Changers Council is a group of philanthropic and driven professionals in the Triangle that share a passion for golf and youth development.


Donating golf equipment is an easy way to support our chapter! First Tee – Triangle is currently accepting junior and adult golf clubs/bags, as well as golf technology that is no more than 10 years old and in good condition at GlobalGolf, located at:

  • 7320 ACC Blvd. Raleigh, NC 27617

In addition to being a donor, businesses and organizations can support First Tee through sponsorship of activities and events. These are great opportunities to highlight your support of our mission and gain exposure to community leaders. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please email D’Andre Esposito at [email protected] or call 919.239.8056


You can donate appreciated stock to First Tee — Triangle. If you have held it for more than one year, you may take a charitable tax deduction for the market value of the stock, and neither you nor First Tee has to pay capital-gains taxes when the stock is sold. The combination can result in a bigger deduction (and more tax savings) for you and a bigger gift for First Tee and the kids we serve than if you sell the stock, pay the taxes, and donate the net proceeds. Contact our office at 919.239.8056 and we can provide our stock account information.


If you are at least 70½ years old by year’s end, you can have all or part of the distribution from an individual retirement account made directly to First Tee — Triangle (up to $100,000 per taxpayer per year). While you will not get a charitable deduction, you will not owe income tax on the IRA distribution. Please note, contributions to donor-advised funds do not qualify.
