Our Mission

Charity Tournaments provides event management services for the overall greater good.  Our event planning and management services help support and benefit charities by fundraising through the use of sporting events.  Each year we will setup various tournaments benefiting a local or national charity to help raise funds and awareness while keeping our participants engaged throughout the process.  Each year we will add and update charity based tournaments where our participants will have an opportunity to qualify for the end of season event.

 
 

Giving is Love

“Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
Mother Teresa

 

Overview

Each year, Charity Tournaments will host the Charity Golf Tour in a local metro area consisting of a minimum six (6) tournaments benefiting one of their partnering charity organizations.  Each tournament will be hosted by Charity Tournaments and include sponsorship management, player management, golf course designation, charity beneficiary, and financial management. The last event of the season will be a national tournament celebration benefiting all the charity organizations, volunteers, committee members, and our board of directors.  The end of year tournament will consist of players who qualify based on their performance throughout the season along with an evening gala for everyone to relax and enjoy the hard work everyone provided. Players will be required to join as a member of Charity Tournaments in order to qualify for the Charity Golf Tour National Tournament at the end of the season.
