• $9 million - Total generated for local charities in 2018
• +35,000 - Total complementary military tickets redeemed for 2018 tournament

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:
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 good-any-one-day tickets to THE PLAYERS. Participating organizations will receive from the PGA TOUR $25 of each $50 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.
The Red Coats are a committee of past Chairmen of THE PLAYERS Championship. "Red Coat" grants are typically in the $2,000 - $10,000 range, and there are a limited number of grants awarded by the Red Coat Grant Committee each year. Please look for next year's application following the 2018 tournament.
