The HomeTown Lenders Championship aims to leverage the power and influence of professional golf and Huntsville to drive equitable impact in the community. In total, the HomeTown Lenders Championship has donated $158,500 (and counting) directly back into the Huntsville Community.
The Community Foundation
We’re proud to partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville as our tournament’s featured charitable beneficiary. The mission of the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville is simple yet impactful. Their mission is to improve the quality of life within the greater Huntsville community through philanthropy.
Huntsville companies, private donors and business leaders utilize the Community Foundation to donate to 501(c)(3) organizations across the country. However, the vast majority of these gifts support causes in the local community, creating a tangible difference directly benefitting the people of Huntsville. The Community Foundation is the hub of philanthropy in the community, connecting donors and local nonprofit partners for the benefit of all residents within the greater Huntsville area.
Huntsville Hospital Foundation
The HomeTown Lenders Championship will now provide a week of professional golf instead of the Foundation’s Classic Golf Tournament, usually played Mother’s Day weekend. Now, golf fans will have the opportunity to play with the Korn Ferry Tour golfers through the Pro-Am event or watch tournament play through a variety of ticket options.
HomeTown Lenders Championship proceeds will benefit both the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville and the new Huntsville Hospital Foundation Fund at the Community Foundation.
