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.
