We believe that making a positive change in the life of a child is the most significant thing you can do. That’s something we hold close to our hearts.
Arnold Palmer's timeless philanthropic commitment to the health and well-being of children lives on through the Arnie's Army Charitable Foundation.
ARNIE'S ARMY INVESTS IN
WE BELIEVE: Children deserve the chance to be kids. They have the right to be healthy.
WE BELIEVE: The game of golf fosters the character and values that enable a child to achieve success in life on and off the course.
WE BELIEVE: Investing in education is the foundation of a promising and bright future.
It all began in the 1960’s when Palmer’s swashbuckling style of golf bolstered a legion of fans, coined by the press as Arnie’s Army, who lovingly bestowed the title of “The King” upon him not only because of his prowess on the course, but more importantly because of his unfailing sense of kindness and thoughtfulness. Love of golf and love of children are the pillars of Arnold Palmer’s legacy.
IT STARTED WITH A DREAM
"When I was a boy learning to play golf in my hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania, I never could have imagined that one day people would come to call me “The King” of the sport I love. For me, it started with a dream - to play the game with unmatched perfection. As I pursued that dream you were there with me. Every step of the way. At every tournament. In every town. Cheering me on. United, as Arnie’s Army. "
AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AN IMPACT
"Golf gave me the opportunity to make a significant impact in the world, to invest in the health and well-being of children. For those of you who followed me during my life, I am eternally grateful for that. But now I’m calling on you - all of you - to join me again. We have more work to do. Join me. Join Arnie’s Army.” - Arnold Palmer
