About Us

The fan movement ignited by Arnold Palmer’s admiring golf fans in the 60’s grew to attract thousands of passionate volunteers to his philanthropic work over the course of his long and successful career.

Following Mr. Palmer’s passing in 2016, Arnie’s Army now carries on the good works he started under the aegis of the charitable foundation he and his family established.

Succeeding generations of Arnold Palmer’s family support the Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation’s (AACF) leadership, helping to ensure that its mission will continue to evolve even as it remains rooted in Palmer family values. AACF programs that address needs in child and family health, the environment, and the community, the Foundation strives to be responsive to today’s issues and to new generations of supporters. True to the soul of its founder, its evolving mission reflects the belief that everyone can make a difference, within a framework of responsible stewardship, collaborative relationships, and a unifying spirit.

Introducing the #LifeWellPlayed Challenge

Arnold Palmer understood the extraordinary power of giving to and caring for other people. He knew even the smallest actions mattered and that the act of “GIVING” was so much more enduring than “GETTING.”

That’s why Arnie’s Army is proud to introduce “The #LifeWellPlayed Challenge.” We want partners to create a moment that asks you one thing and one thing only – How will you positively impact the lives of others today?

Let’s see what you can create. Find a way to make a positive difference in a child’s life. Perform an act of kindness. Send a note of encouragement to a friend. Use your talents to help others and give back, just like #ArnieWould.

Tell us how you make an impact in your community and your life. Show us how you live #LifeWellPlayed.
