We strongly believe it is our responsibility to be good corporate citizens in the communities where we live, work, and host one of the world’s most recognized sporting events–THE PLAYERS Championship.
Thanks to continued commitment from our volunteers, Proud Partners, sponsors, vendors, business and civic leaders, media and fans, THE PLAYERS is able to provide year-round support to non-profit organizations throughout Northeast Florida that strengthen and improve the lives of citizens and communities.
Who we support
Over the past 40+ years, THE PLAYERS has generated more than $100 million to support non-profit organizations in communities within the five-county area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St. Johns counties).
While hundreds of community-based groups, organizations and institutions benefit from THE PLAYERS’ funding and support, priority consideration is given to nonprofit organizations committed to serving and promoting youth services, education, character development, health, wellness and sports and military support.
If a charity has 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt status and is located in the five-country area, it may request support from THE PLAYERS via the following programs:
With a history and tradition of giving, THE PLAYERS receives numerous requests for funding and support from charities throughout the region. To increase its knowledge and understanding of the growing and ever-changing needs of citizens and communities in northeast Florida, THE PLAYERS has established guidelines, ensuring alignment with its mission, priorities, and resources. THE PLAYERS accepts grant proposals from nonprofit organizations who do not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, religion, military and veteran status, disability, sex, age, gender identity, orientation, or any other class protected by law, and - among other requirements - provide services aligned with THE PLAYERS priority focus areas: Youth services; Education; Character development; Health, wellness and sports; Military support.
THE PLAYERS grant program is currently suspended, however we maintain our mission providing charitable and economic benefits to the communities where we play, even during these unprecedented times. We commit to working with our partners to ensure continued support of their needs. Click here for more information.
As a way to continue our ongoing commitment to Northeast Florida, the Red Coats - a committee of past volunteer chairpersons- oversee a grant program to support local charities. For more information, click here.

Charities can earn unlimited funds by participating in Birdies for Charity, and they also are eligible for additional funds from THE PLAYERS Birdies Bonus Pool. Most charities seeking support from THE PLAYERS will be supported through the Birdies for Charity program. For information on THE PLAYERS Birdies for Charity program, click HERE.
Chip in for Youth provides youth sports associations, schools, parent-teacher organizations and youth-related charities the opportunity to raise funds by promoting the sale of tickets to THE PLAYERS. Participating organizations will receive from the PGA TOUR $30 of each $55 ticket they sell. The remainder of the net proceeds of each ticket will be donated by TOUR to the First Tee. For additional information on THE PLAYERS Chip in for Youth ticket program, click HERE.
To give local organizations a way to raise their profiles during tournament week, THE PLAYERS designates a different charity as “Charity of the Day” from Tuesday through Sunday.
Information about THE PLAYERS 2021 Charities of the Day will be available closer to the tournament.
