No person stands so tall as the one who stoops to help a child.
— Fr. John P. Smyth, Executive Director of The Standing Tall Foundation


Standing Tall Foundation 

The primary recipient of the G.O.L.F. Scholarship Fund is the Standing Tall Foundation, which was founded and is guided by Fr. John Smyth. The Foundation's mandate is to alleviate the desperation, to accelerate the healing, to elevate the spirit, to stand tall.

Fr. Smyth's belief has always been that a key factor in eliminating the cycle of abuse, poverty, and neglect towards youth is through education. The Standing Tall Foundation currently provides tuition assistance to 172 students. Visit for more information.
