Phoenix Country Club – Home to PGA TOUR Championship Charles Schwab Cup

Our non-profit Elevate Phoenix has been delivering life changing results with urban youth for more than a decade now in Phoenix, Arizona. Our program is embedded in the Phoenix Union High School District, as well as some of its elementary feeder schools. Teaching life skills and character qualities, our youth graduate high school at a rate of 98% and 100% of these students move forward in life with a post-secondary plan.

Programs like ours are life changing, but depend on your donations to thrive year after year.

We are proud to be PGA pro golfer Tom Lehman’s charity of choice and each year he hosts our major fundraising gala and golf tournament. Together we have accomplished so much through this event, raising almost $3M in the last few years.

This year’s event is on November 21 and November 22, 2021 at the Phoenix Country Club and will be unlike any event we’ve done before.  Respectful of the fact that our country is still dealing with a pandemic, the gala will be held both in person for those who are comfortable attending, as well as virtually.  Be inspired by this year’s event, as we focus on our Elevate Phoenix youth and share a day in the life of these amazing teens.  Our Teacher/Mentors will also share the inspiring messages we teach each day, as well as virtually travelling to Western New Mexico University where our youth were gifted scholarships this year and are thriving. 

One of a kind auction items could be yours, like artwork signed by NFL great Larry Fitzgerald, an extra role in a Pure Flix movie or $10K worth of jewelry from Molina Fine Jewelers.

We invite you to join us, bid on an auction item or simply donate:


All the money from this event goes directly back into our program, with a focus on changing an entire community. We have ambitious goals for the future of expanding into every school in the district, as well as all its feeder elementary schools.

With your help, it is all possible.
