Golf Fore Grants 2022

Congratulations to our 2022 Golf Fore Grants Winners!

Tournament Winners, Paul Grieger, Al Herink, Jeff Roh, and Cody Wickham

On June 6, 2022, over 200 participants, volunteers, and sponsors gathered for a day of golf, games, and fun at Champions Run Golf Course for our 23rd annual Golf Fore Grants Tournament. This year’s event was our most successful Golf Fore Grants fundraiser yet, raising over $55K for Elkhorn Public Schools’ classrooms!

“As we celebrate Golf Fore Grants’ 23rd year, we are grateful and humbled by the continued sponsorships, golf participants, course volunteers, and overall community collaboration of this successful annual event.” said Stacey Falk, EPSF Executive Director.

This year’s Golf Fore Grants event featured a four-person 18-hole afternoon scramble which began with a noon shotgun start. Members of Elkhorn South High School Cheer, Elkhorn North Band, Elkhorn Kids Campus Employees, and Foundation Friends teamed up to assist with golf games all along the course which included opportunities to win a variety of prizes including a lease on a 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. For the first time in EPSF Golf Fore Grants history, a tournament golfer shot a hole-in-one and won the lease on the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio! This is also the only “win a car” hole-in-one that has been recorded at Champions Run!

The tournament team champions were DA Davidson’s Paul Grieger, Al Herink, Cody Wickham, and Jeff Roh with a winning score of 57. Jukes Ale Works’ foursome were the winners of this year’s putting green contest and the best Golf Poker hand went to Wyatt Behlen.

The full list of this year’s winners can be found here.

#GivingTuesday 2021

Please consider making a donation to our year-end campaign on November 30th, #GivingTuesday! It is with your crucial support that we are able to fund Classroom Grants, Scholarships, Math & Reading Assistance, Teacher Tuition Reimbursement, and more. Please read about our main programs below:

Classroom Grants

We enrich Elkhorn Public School education by providing multiple Classroom Grants to all 19 schools in the District, impacting Elkhorn students at every grade level


Scholarship Program

We administer scholarships on behalf of community businesses, families, and organizations. Together, our scholarship program has benefited thousands of graduating Elkhorn seniors.


“It truly means the world to me to have you believe in me and have invested in my future. Thank you so much.” -Kyler Beekman, 2020 Elkhorn High School Graduate & EPSF Scholarship Recipient


Kids in Need

We provide financial assistance to Elkhorn families in need, ensuring financial hardships do not stand in the way of our students’ physical, social, and emotional needs or their ability to achieve success within our schools.


Before/After School Math & Reading Intervention

We fund the numerous hours that our Elkhorn teachers spend outside their school day assisting the hundreds of elementary school students who need extra assistance in math and reading comprehension. This includes after-school math & reading clubs.


“At first I didn’t think that my child would want to attend Math Club, but he LOVES it!  I have seen such improvement in the work he is doing!” -Emily Penry


Teacher Tuition Reimbursement

We encourage our Elkhorn teachers and teacher assistants to prioritize their continued education by providing partial tuition reimbursement. The Foundation provides thousands of dollars in tuition reimbursement every year.
