AUGUSTA NATIONAL COMES OUT TO REVEAL CHARITY CONTRIBUTIONS
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).
