PDGA Europe Disc Golf Development Grant Program

PDGA Europe Disc Golf Development Grant Program

Program Description

The PDGA Europe Disc Golf Development Grant Program was launched in March 2022. The purpose of the Grant is to invest a portion of the fees PDGA receives from European members and events directly back into the continued growth and development of the sport across Europe. The vision of the Grant is to support the introduction of Disc Golf into new European countries and its continued development in established European countries.

Grants will be provided to PDGA partner National Associations, local clubs and individual current PDGA members. Materials and equipment purchased with grant funding must become the property of a national or local not-for–profit disc golf, sports or community association or club, and not the individual participants. All projects receiving support must promote PDGA Europe and its contributions as part of their activities.
