With the golf season in full swing, there is plenty to cheer on with the players and the fans. The PGA Tour brings a lot of entertainment, and undoubtedly brings in a lot of money. One overlooked part however, is how much charity funds the tour raises, which just reached three billion dollars raised all-time.
The PGA Tour, its underling tours and most of the greatest players in the world combine to be a non-profit organization that helps raise a lot of money for various charities, and it has reached an impressive new tally: $3 billion.
The Tour announced its 2019 charitable offerings total to be $204 million from all five of its tours (Champions, Latinoamerica, Mackenzie, Korn Ferry being the others). That brings the total of all-time funds raised to $3.05 billion.
“It’s truly a pleasure to thank our fans, sponsors, tournaments, players and volunteers for helping us generate over $3 billion for charity and positively impact millions of lives,” Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said in a press release.
