Philadelphia Club Foundation

imgPhiladelphia Club Foundation (PCF) was created in 2003. PCF was the collaboration of several club managers, most notably Jeff McFadden, Alan Gamble and Chet Gratkowski. The purpose of the foundation was to enhance educational opportunities for managers and students pursuing a degree in Club Management, as well as contribute to the community through charitable giving.

The foundation began with some seed money, graciously donated by The Union League of Philadelphia, and grew quickly from humble beginnings. At first, PCF committed to granting the Daniel Layman Scholarship (awarded to a student from Widener University) as well as tuition for BMI I, II or III and the CCM review course for managers pursuing their CCM designation. Since its inception, the foundation has been successfully working its way towards its funding goal of $500,000, enabling the foundation to grant three student scholarships, tuition for all numbered BMI courses, BMI Food and Beverage and BMI Golf. PCF also covers expenses for monthly education sessions hosted by PVCMA.

PCF continues to evolve and grow its funding and will continue to look for more ways to achieve the two core missions: support education and donate to local charity. PVCMA members are encouraged to get involved in continuing to develop this program and to take advantage of the opportunities the scholarships present. Members of the community at large, including vendor affiliates and other club professionals, are also welcome to become involved in this meaningful effort.
