The Sally Little Charitable Trust, founded in 2012, is based in Cape Town. The vision of the trust is that of "empowering women by exposing them to and educating them through golf'. The Trust is a facilitator for upliftment through education by improving women's self-esteem and enhancing their chances of success in life through opportunity.
Additional objectives of The Trust are:
- To take golf to grass roots nationally through the "Teach the Teacher" initiative.
- To provide 3-5 young women per year, with Golf bursaries to Tuks University, where they emerge with their undergraduate degree as well as their PGA teaching credentials
- To produce the first woman of colour from South Africa to play on the international stage
The Trust also serves another of Sally's passions: Women's Cancers, emphasizing Breast Cancer awareness, detection and eradication.
Sally has been very involved with breast cancer causes through the years. She became aware of breast cancer early in her professional career when a fellow competitor was diagnosed. The players came together and raised funds for her treatment. It was at this time that the LPGA Tour became an ally of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, as it is known today, is the largest non profit breast cancer organization in the world. Sally has been a staunch supporter of the Komen Foundation from her early years on tour to this day.
In recognition of her continued support and efforts to raise awareness throughout her travels, Sally is honored to have been appointed Global Ambassador for the Komen Foundation. Having returned to South Africa, Sally and her Trust will continue to work closely with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
