Golf Classic 2018

Our Story

Committed to Help Local Charities for 15 years

In 2003, after 46 years of community service, Savage and Associates established the Savage Foundation to help support non-profit organizations in Northwest Ohio.  Since then, we have raised over $1,000,000 for local charities in the Toledo area. Our premiere event, the Savage Foundation Golf Classic has become one of the most charitable single-day charity golf outings in Northwest Ohio.

2018 Savage Foundation Golf Classic

This year’s tournament will be held on May 21, 2018 at Stone Oak Country Club. It is hard to believe this is the 15th year of this great event. Over the past fourteen years, the Golf Classic has raised over $1,000,000 for many deserving charities in Northwest Ohio. The four charities who will be receiving proceeds from this year’s event are making a difference in the lives of those they serve. As always, we truly appreciate your support and hope you continue to do so for many years to come.

Our 2018 Charities

Connecting Kids to Meals

CONNECTING KIDS TO MEALS – Connecting Kids to Meals (formerly, Feed Lucas County Children) provides hot, nutritious meals at no cost to children in low-income and underserved areas throughout the entire year. Since they began operating in 2002, they have served over 5 million meals to hungry children in need.

Good Grief of Northwest Ohio

GOOD GRIEF OF NORTHWEST OHIO – Good Grief creates awareness of and support for grieving children and their families, to provide a safe and caring place for children to explore, express, and come to an understanding of thoughts, fears, questions, and emotions associated with grief and loss.


OPEN DOOR MINISTRY – Open Door provides a calm, supportive, therapeutic environment in which men afflicted with substance abuse addiction may be empowered through the spirituality of the 12 Steps and other proven program requirements. The programs enable them to deal with the problems they face as they seek to re-establish themselves as self-supporting, sober, productive members of society.

Team Recovery

TEAM RECOVERY – Team Recovery started with a few people in detox in Toledo, Ohio. They originally formed to help each other and start a movement to break the stigma that is attached to drug addiction. Team Recovery is an advocacy group helping to educate families about the disease of addiction, as well as the recovery process.

“It is truly an honor and a privilege to be associated with an event that demonstrates such excellence, social responsibility and deep compassion for charitable organizations in our local community. It is through the generosity and kindness of our committee, volunteers, and sponsors that we are able to continue to make a difference in the lives of so many.”
