PGA of America REACH Foundation Philadelphia Receives $100,000 Endowment From Martonick Estate

Lower Gwynedd Township, Pa. (May 8, 2024) —The PGA of America REACH Foundation, the Philadelphia PGA Section’s 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is pleased to announce that it has received a $100,000 endowment from the estate of PGA of America Golf Professional Jason Martonick, who passed away in 2023.

Martonick was elected to PGA of America Membership in 2003 and was most recently the coach for Penn State Hazelton’s golf team. The endowment will help fund the foundation’s Youth, Military, and Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, including programs like PGA Jr. League, Golf in Schools, PGA HOPE Philadelphia (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), and the Philadelphia PGA Junior Tour Diversity Scholarships. 

“We are incredibly grateful for this generous endowment from the Martonick estate,” said PGA REACH Philadelphia Director Courtney Curcio. “This gift will help our foundation’s programming thrive for years, and will remain a testament to Jason’s heart and generosity.” 

PGA REACH Philadelphia relies on private donations to fund its programs and volunteered time from our PGA of America Golf Professionals to activate them successfully.
