Helping America’s Wounded Veterans

Ginnie Mae Veteran lending policy

The Carrington Charitable Foundation's (CCF) 8th Annual Golf Classic raised over $1.7 million to fund programs that support wounded American Veterans and their families. Over 260 golfers participated in the annual event, which took place in October at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, California.

CCF, the nonprofit organization of The Carrington Companies, supports a number of charities that provide mobility, stability, purpose, and prosperity for U.S. servicemen and women returning from post-9/11 battlefields. Since 2011, the CCF Golf Classic has raised more than $17 million, which have helped fund organizations such as The Veterans Airlift Command, the Travis Mills Foundation, The Honor Foundation, and the GallantFew.

CCF's Signature Program, Carrington House, provides custom, adaptive homes for catastrophically injured veterans. To date, Carrington House has built 20 homes for deserving Veterans, each designed to meet the special needs of wounded Veterans and their families. Two more homes are on track for completion in 2018.

"Every year, this event inspires so many donors, partners, friends and families to come together to give back to Veterans and their families," said Rosemary Rose, Chairman, Carrington Charitable Foundation. "It is a privilege to continue to support and expand the CCF programs that help those who sacrificed so much while protecting our freedom."

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Brian Kolfage and his family were among the honored Veterans at this year's tournament. According to Airman Kolfage, a CCF Ambassador, attending the CCF Golf Classic is always the highlight of the year for his family.

"It's the most important Veterans event we take part in each year, and it raises an incredible amount of funds to help America's most severely wounded Veterans," he said. "This event is also about our families. It's the one time that we can all get together, stress free, and help one another. We've grown into a family. We lean on each other, support each other and we know Carrington is always there for us and future wounded Veterans."

The 9th Annual Carrington Charitable Foundation Golf Classic will take place on October 14, 2019, at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, California.
