The Travelers Championship is proud to be a PGA TOUR event, which donates 100 percent of net proceeds to charity every year. Since 1952, the tournament has generated more than $44 million for charity and in 2020, the Travelers Championship generated more than $1.6 million for 115 charities throughout the region.
“Despite being held as a TV-only event due to the pandemic, we’re grateful that we were able to generate a significant amount of money for local charities while keeping the players and our greater community safe,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “We’re fortunate to have so many wonderful sponsors and corporate partners who value the importance of doing what we can to support those in need. Without their help, not only this year but every year, we wouldn’t be able to make this kind of charitable impact.”
The below video is a conversation that took place during our 2020 Charity Celebration between this year’s charitable beneficiaries. One of the charitable recipients was 4-CT, an independent nonprofit that has funded statewide COVID-19 relief efforts. The Travelers Championship also provided a grant to the University of New Haven’s Center for Advanced Policing and Tow Youth Justice Institute, whose Connecticut Institute for Youth and Police Relations program will help educate and train police officers so they can improve relationships with the communities they serve. Below is a panel discussion describing the impact that these two organizations made on our community this year.
