Giving Back Through Golf
The Foundation has an incredible opportunity to improve lives and help the communities in which the Tour operates, through the creation of empowering charitable partnerships. Furthermore, we will work to develop the global game of golf and support our players’ charitable activities. To achieve this, the Foundation has established three guiding principles.
”The commitment we have made to The European Tour Foundation is unquestionably the most important thing we will do in 2018.”
Keith Pelley, CEO European Tour

Supporting the communities
in which the Tour operates
The European Tour Foundation will support the communities in which our three Tours operate – Challenge, European and Staysure - to ensure a lasting legacy in the countries where the European Tour plays. This may be local causes such as hospices, the provision of free tickets, protecting the environment or sport and education programmes.
