Charitable Organizations


Since its inception, Monterey Peninsula Foundation has given millions of dollars to organizations in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties. In the 2014/15 fiscal year, the Foundation donated $9.1 million to support local nonprofits in the tri-county area we serve.

In 1937, Bing Crosby invited a group of friends to get together for some golf, a clambake and, most importantly, to raise a little money for the local charities…the rest is history.

Since that time, the tournament, now known as the
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, has become one of the most internationally recognized stops on the PGA TOUR, and Monterey Peninsula Foundation’s grant programs continue to support hundreds of nonprofit organizations.
