Mission

Connecting others to giving back in the St. Louis community.

Giving

Each year we select a local non-profit organization with whom we partner with to raise funds and participate in volunteer activities.

Events

We host an annual golf tournament, Happy Gilmore Day. In addition, we also host an annual trivia night and provide volunteer opportunities via our giving days. Contact us for more information!

Happy 2 Give began simply as a “Happy Gilmore Day” golf tournament/house party with just a few friends. Since the first event in 2008, it continued to grow into a successful fundraiser. Happy 2 Give is designed to build awareness of philanthropic causes in the St. Louis community and encourage support of these causes in the form of time and monetary contributions. Our goal is to help individuals feel empowered to seek out and support various organizations regardless of the amount they are able to contribute. We feel that it is important to highlight the opportunity to give back by emphasizing the happiness that is felt when giving back.
