The Girard Area Community Foundation hosts two fundraiser events each year. In the spring, we host a golf tournament at Crawford Hills Golf Course. Then, during the summer, we host a softball tournament in Walnut, Kansas.

These events help fund GACF operations and increase the amount we can grant to the nonprofit organizations that work so hard to make Girard and the surrounding area an even better place to live and work. Contact us to learn more about these exciting opportunities to have fun and make a difference in your community!

GACF Charity Golf Tournament

Since 2021, the Girard Area Community Foundation has hosted the GACF Charity Golf Tournament annually at Crawford Hills Golf Course in Girard. Originally, the tournament was a nine-hole, two-person scramble, but starting in 2023 we switched to an 18-hole format. In addition to slots for teams interested in playing, we also offer exciting sponsorship opportunities for local businesses.

Our charity golf tournament is typically hosted in the second quarter of the year.

GACF Softball Tournament

GACF has been hosting an annual softball tournament in Walnut since 2015. The tournament is always a great opportunity for local residents to have fun while supporting a great cause. As with our Charity Golf Tournament, in addition to opportunities for players, we also offer excellent sponsorship opportunities for local businesses.

Our softball tournament is typically scheduled during the late summer or early fall.

Other Events

We’ve also hosted special events in the past, including a Girard-area garden tour, a charity auction, a talent show, and much more besides! Make sure you’re checking our blog regularly and following us on Facebook so you hear about all our upcoming events!
