The Tiger Woods Foundation (“TWF”) was established in 1996 as a nonprofit organization with emphasis on providing educational enrichment opportunities to underserved youth. To support our mission, the TWF operates three PGA TOUR golf tournaments annually: the Genesis Open, the Quicken Loans National, and the Hero World Challenge, a PGA TOUR sanctioned golf tournament featuring an exclusive 18-player field held at Albany, Bahamas in early December.
In addition, the TWF produces annual Signature Events including Tiger Jam, an annual spring benefit concert in Las Vegas; and the Tiger Woods Invitational, a three-day golf experience on the Monterey Peninsula.
These events are critical to our mission and collectively, they have raised millions of dollars for the college access programs supported by the Tiger Woods Foundation. For more information, visit www.TigerWoodsFoundation.org.
