In April 2009 a group of Annapolis area, like minded, friends and businesses decided to host, manage and promote an annual golf tournament known as “Putts Fore Mutts”, with the proceeds benefiting the local SPCA animal shelter.
In May 2011, the Putts Fore Mutts Foundation was incorporated as a nonprofit all volunteer organization.
PFMF operates on three levels in terms of helping to make a difference to the welfare of animals:
♥ A Grant Program that is focused on helping grassroots efforts that have a compelling vision as to how they can make a unique contribution to the animal welfare cause.
♥ Establishing PFMF Fundraising Projects in partnership with local for profit or nonprofit organizations that serve the mission to advance the cause of animal welfare.
♥ Shelter Executive Development Scholarship in partnership with the Humane Society University, the program will strengthen the Executive Directors financial and fundraising abilities to look at their mission and vision and match their needs to external customers.
