Kids are at the Heart of Everything we do
Through mental health services and urban education programs, Momentous Institute changes the odds for over 7,000 kids and family members every year.
- Children who have experienced trauma and abuse discover that there is safety and security in the world.
- Inner-city students prove that growing up in poverty doesn’t limit their future success.
Through research and training, we share what works with other educators and mental health professionals.
Our goal? Create sustainable change and equip urban professionals with innovative strategies that work in the inner-city.
Your support helps us to continue building winners, both on and off the golf course.
Junior Reporter Stories From the Nelson

Alicia and Kabindra are fifth graders at the J. Erik Jonsson Community School, one of the programs of the Momentous Institute supported by funds raised at the Nelson. And this is their experience at the 2013 HP Byron Nelson Championship.

"I believe the main reason we've always gotten such good support for the tournament is because people realize that every cent of the profits goes to these children and their families, and no one takes any money out for themselves. I don't get a penny, never have, nor does the Club president or the tournament chairman. I've always been fortunate to be connected with people who are substantial who know how to get things done and who do them honestly and properly. And the Salesmanship Club is the best example I've ever seen of these kinds of qualities."
