Soon after Arnold Palmer's first tour win in 1955, a new energy began to pulsate through the golfing world. Admiring golf fans rapidly transformed into "Arnie's Army" - passionate supporters who loved the way he played the game and lived a #LifeWellPlayed.
Alongside his wife of nearly 50 years, Winnie, Mr. Palmer's leadership transcended golf, engaging in philanthropic work that changed lives - and challenged others to follow his example.
Today, the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation continues the Palmer tradition of impactful philanthropy and leadership. Led by members of the Palmer family, and strategic advisors, Arnie's Army champions a #LifeWellPlayed for our children - and theirs.
The Arnold Palmer Group of companies, the prestigious Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard, and the Palmer family, are among the leading contributors to the foundation. As ever, thousands are part of Arnie's Army, providing generous support and embracing our Founders' spirit that, together, we can make a difference.
Through grantmaking and initiatives, the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation champions our Founders' devotion to youth - encouraging strong character and supporting children facing health challenges - and honor their commitment to nature and its ability to enrich and heal us. The Palmer Foundation's vision is a Life Well Played for future generations.
