MAKING AN IMPACT
ALL PROCEEDS FROM TIGER JAM BENEFIT YOUTH THROUGH PROGRAMS OF TGR FOUNDATION
For more than 25 years, TGR Foundation has empowered youth through education programs. To date Tiger Jam has raised more than $22 million for TGR Foundation.
In 1996, Tiger Woods launched TGR Foundation based on the Woods’ family motto of share and care, and a dream to give kids hope. With the mission to empower youth to pursue their passions through education, TGR Foundation developed innovative education and youth development programs to reach students from under-resourced communities worldwide. In 2016, Tiger challenged TGR foundation “to make bold choices, explore uncharted territory and reach millions of kids around the world.” In 2021 during its 25th anniversary year, the foundation met his challenge and celebrated two million students reached.
The journey to transform lives through education began with Woods’ vision to create a safe space for youth. With the opening of the TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim in 2006, his vision became a reality and a series of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), college access and career exploration programs for youth followed.
“I’m proud of my foundation’s growth over the last 25 years,” Tiger Woods said. “Five years ago, I challenged my team to reach millions of kids around the world. As we celebrate this milestone, I’m excited for our new projects that will help even more students chase after their dreams.”
Looking ahead, TGR Foundation remains focused on transforming the lives of students from under-resourced communities through education. With the launch of the Pathways Forward initiative, the foundation is expanding programs and resources to provide students the tools to build accessible pathways to personal and professional success. Through collaborative partnerships, donations and the support of events like Tiger Jam, more students will have access to programs aimed to help youth discover their passions, deepen their knowledge and transform their lives through education.
