At the Deutsche Bank Championship we take pride in our efforts to make a positive impact on our community. The Championship has a strong tradition of charitable giving that generated $2.4 million just last year. Our grand total in charity contributions is over $24 million since our inception just ten years ago.
The Championship helps drive charitable proceeds annually to the Tiger Woods Learning Center, the Stop & Shop/Giant Family Foundation and many other deserving New England charities through various programs and events.
The primary beneficiary of the Deutsche Bank Championship is the Tiger Woods Foundation. In addition, the Championship also supports several other charities throughout New England.
Check out some of our charitable programs listed below and help us in our mission to empower and educate the youth and families in our surrounding communities.

John D. Mineck Junior Cup
In conjunction with the Deutsche Bank Championship, the fifth-annual John D. Mineck DBC Junior Cup will showcase 36 of the nation's top junior golfers (ages 11-18) on Sept. 4-5 at Boston Golf Club in Hingham, Mass. Affiliated with the U.S. Junior Challenge Cup Junior Golf Foundation, the DBC Junior Cup bears the name of its late co-founder, John D. Mineck, a long-time supporter of junior golf and the co-founder of Boston Golf Club who passed away in 2007.
The tournament will feature a Ryder Cup format, pitting Team New England (captained by Dave Adamonis, Jr.) against Team USA (captained by Steve Feinstein) through 18 four-player, best-ball matches worth four points each. Last year, Team New England defeated Team USA, 44-28.
Upon conclusion of the DBC Junior Cup, Boston Golf Club and the Deutsche Bank Championship will present the DBC Junior Cup to the winning team, as well as name the winners of the John D. Mineck Sportsmanship Award and the John D. Mineck Foundation Scholarship Award.
DBC Charity Days
Each year, the Deutsche Bank Championship reaches out into local communities in both charitable giving and community service. Social responsibility has become more important than ever as we make our way to a stronger economy. The Deutsche Bank Championship takes pride in its efforts in making a positive impact on the community and hosts numerous days of charitable service in support of local charitable organizations.
State Street, the PGA TOUR Wives Association, and Stop & Shop donated enough food to pack 2000 "Healthy Packs" this year for the kids from the Boys and Girls Club of South Boston, Dorcester and Brockton. Each "pack" provides a child in need with eight different kid friendly, healthy food items.
