Most disc golfers are very aware of who Paul McBeth is and what he has done on disc golf courses over the last 15+ years. They may not know as much about his passion for bringing the joys and benefits of disc golf to as many new people as possible. Paul is where he is today because disc golf was available to him in a setting that typically would not have had accessible disc golf courses. Paul would like to see future generations in similar areas have a chance to learn life lessons and experience the joy and community that playing disc golf affords. The Paul McBeth Foundation is Paul's vehicle to make this happen!
The Paul McBeth Foundation is a corporation registered in the state of Virginia. An application for 501(c)3 status has been filed with the Internal Revenue Service.
The Paul McBeth Foundation will develop and introduce sustainable disc golf experiences in underserved locations with limited or no access to the sport.
The Paul McBeth Foundation sees the incredible benefits that disc golf can provide for both individuals and groups of people. The golf lessons learned on the course associated with hard work, commitment, integrity, critical thinking, decision making, communication, and building and maintaining relationships go way past the course and deep into the futures of all who participate. The Paul McBeth Foundation is committed to making this a reality for as many people as possible.
Our Game Plan
The Paul McBeth Foundation is looking for opportunities to either install disc golf courses or provide portable disc golf options in areas without easy access to the sport. Projects ranging from putting baskets in the ground overseas to providing portable baskets to an urban community center cannot be the foundation's end game, though. Providing resources and education to develop and sustain consistent play has to happen to fulfill the foundation's mission.
