Proceeds from all PGA TOUR events benefit charities selected by the tournament organization. The nationally known educational foundation Teach for America has been selected as the primary charitable recipient of the Wells Fargo Championship. The Wells Fargo Championship has donated over $18 million to charity and boosted awareness of various Charlotte-area organizations.
"One of our primary goals is to make a positive impact on the community whether it is through charitable contributions and awareness, a positive economic impact or providing a first-class experience for the community each spring," said Kym Hougham, Executive Director of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Champions for Education, Inc., a 501(c) (3) foundation formed to raise funds for education, will manage and operate this event as the tournament host organization. Twelve members comprise the current board of directors:
