Red Coats’ Community Grants

The Red Coats are a group of civic and corporate leaders who oversee THE PLAYERS volunteer efforts as well as a special grant program for local nonprofits. The Red Coats’ Community Grants program is designed to fund smaller projects for nonprofit organizations here in Northeast Florida.

Applicants for the 2024 grant program will be notified of awards in late summer. The grant program will reopen following THE PLAYERS 2025.

THE PLAYERS Equipment Grant

THE PLAYERS Championship is committed to supporting athletes across Northeast Florida in their golf journeys. Our championship strives to increase equity, improve participation, and grow competitive play in the game of golf regardless of socioeconomic status. To better understand equipment needs and barriers of access to the sport, THE PLAYERS offers an equipment grant program open to all Northeast Florida nonprofit organizations with 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.

Equipment is not to be resold and all equipment must be used exclusively for the program outlined in your application.


THE PLAYERS Annual Grant Program

THE PLAYERS Annual Grant Program provides an opportunity for local nonprofits to receive funding to permanently and vastly improve the local community. Grant awards begin at $12,500, payable over multiple years.

To be considered for funding, an organization must meet several requirements:
