Small Steps depends on private donations from generous donors, including individuals, corporations, churches, community groups, and foundations. A major source of our funding is through our annual fundraising events.


Golf Classic

The Small Steps Golf Classic is a premier charity golf tournament in Houston held each fall at Champions Golf Club. Since the first tournament in 1996, the Classic has raised more than $15.8 million for Small Steps Nurturing Center. The Golf Classic is a first-class business entertainment event that is well known for the large number of great door prizes given away at the awards dinner following the tournament.


Nurture & Nourish Luncheon

In the wake of COVID-19, the health and safety of our community remains our top priority. With this in mind, in lieu of our traditional in-person Nurture & Nourish Luncheon, we hope you will join us from your home for the 2020 Small Steps Picnic Luncheon! Rather than sponsoring a table, we ask our friends and supporters to instead sponsor a picnic basket this year. Baskets will be delivered to your home on Sunday, October 4, 2020. While we will miss celebrating with you in person, we hope you will “join” the Small Steps community from home and enjoy a picnic with your friends or family.


Clays Classic

Started in 2003 to help fund the construction of our second school in the Fifth Ward, the Small Steps Clays Classic has become an annual draw for many prominent companies. The tournament format consists of 100 targets at 10 stations.

Wine Classic

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful evening of food, wine, and friends at our annual multi-course dinner paired with unique wines.


Two Step for Small Steps

Small Steps Nurturing Center's Two Step for Small Steps event is a western themed evening of networking, dancing, and fun for Houston's Young Professionals.
