TGR Foundation celebrates Giving Tuesday, matches December donations
At TGR Foundation we believe the best way to impact the world is to empower those who enter it. Our education programs transform empowerment into impact as we support students and educators around the world. With our generous donors, partners and volunteers, we are joining the global day of philanthropy to Empower The Journey of more students in need on Giving Tuesday, December 3. A $41K match from our Board of Governors will allow us to double the dollars raised through the end of the year.
Launched in 2012, Giving Tuesday has grown into a collective movement that brings people together to support the organizations, communities and causes we care about most. For many nonprofits, the funds raised through these campaigns are put to work immediately and sustain instrumental programs for the education, health and wellbeing of people around the world.
“Giving Tuesday provides a simple way for each of us to be an ambassador for our favorite causes and charities on a day and in a season that the world is most receptive to providing support,” said Janine Ingram Koeneke, Vice President of Donor Partnerships. “With the generous match from our Board of Governors, the dollars we raise will help us train more educators, impact more children and strengthen communities around the world.”
Partnership is at the core of our organization and we’re grateful for all who support us in our efforts to pursue our mission and fulfill our vision of a world where opportunity is universal and potential is limitless.
In honor of Tiger Woods 82nd victory at the ZOZO Championship earlier this year, which tied the record for PGA TOUR wins, the $41K match from the Board of Governors will help the campaign reach its goal to raise $82K for education programs focused on science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), college-access and workforce development.
Throughout the campaign, which ends at midnight on Tuesday, December 31, we will highlight students that have benefited from our programs and are achieving their goals while making an impact.
Redefining what it means to be a champion.
