History of Giving
Since its inception in 1999, the CVS Health Charity Classic has provided support to hundreds of nonprofit organizations throughout Southern New England. Each year, approximately 20 partner charities recruit and train volunteers for specific tasks at the Charity Classic, such as admissions, hospitality, standard bearers, parking, etc. These organizations play a vital role in recruiting and retaining the more than 1,000 volunteers needed each year to ensure a successful tournament experience for players and patrons alike.
The Charity Classic supports these 22 groups, in addition to 80+ other nonprofits focused on health, education and support for children and families at risk and in transition. Each year the tournament assesses critical needs within the community and responds with targeted grants to organizations that provide vital services to so many. Over the last 19 years, more than $21 million in grants has been awarded to these worthy charitable organizations. With the support of sponsors, individual donors, patrons, fans and golfers alike, we look to continue our tradition of giving for years to come.
