MGA at Quail Lodge Community Impact Fund

About the Fund

The Men’s Golf Association (MGA) at Quail Lodge Community Impact Fund enables the Scholarship Committee to continue the solid tradition of providing targeted, cost-effective financial assistance to local students to continue their education in college or a CTE vocational program. The Committee has also been able to fund grants to the Rancho Cielo Youth Campus because of the continued generous support.


I want to thank you for the MGA’s continued support of my golf and academic career.” – Scholarship Recipient

Background & Impact

The Fund originated in 2006, when a long-time member wanted to leave a modest educational legacy. This led to awarding the first scholarship of $1,000 to a student from Pacific Grove High School in 2009. He pledged $1,000 per year for five years and encouraged other members to raise additional scholarship funds.

Since that initial award, 62 students have received a total of 99 scholarships totaling over $350,000. In 2023, the MGA awarded 23 scholarships, including 13 new awards and nine renewal scholarships. The Rancho Cielo Youth Campus received a grant of $15,000 for a total donation of $108,000 to date.

The award from Quail MGA was something unexpected and yet amazing… am writing from my dorm in San Diego…I am incredibly grateful for the support of your organization.” – Scholarship Recipient
