More than a big-time sporting event, the Travelers Championship is a major driver of charitable giving.
The Travelers Championship, Connecticut’s largest annual professional sporting event, is part of the PGA TOUR’s season-long FedExCup series.
Each year, the tournament donates 100% of its net proceeds to charity and also provides a platform for its charitable partners raising awareness for their missions.
In 2021, the tournament generated more than $2.2 million for 125 charities, and since 1952 the event has contributed more than $46 million for regional nonprofits. In addition to all that goes to charity, the event annually drives an economic boost of nearly $70 million to the state and region.
