AUGUSTA NATIONAL COMES OUT TO REVEAL CHARITY CONTRIBUTIONS
Published November 16, 1998
Despite its "reputation for secrecy," the Augusta National Golf Club revealed Friday that it had given $3M in charitable donations to three organizations, according to Damon Cline of the AUGUSTA CHRONICLE. Two local nonprofit organizations, the CSRA Community Foundation and Fore! Augusta, received $1M each, while the other $1M went to The First Tee initiative. The announcement came via a one-page release and "marks the first time" the club has publicly announced a financial contribution (AUG. CHRONICLE, 11/14).
