Charles Schwab Challenge names its Charity of the Year

Written by Mindia Whittier

The PGA TOUR has named a Fort Worth-based non-profit as beneficiary of the Charles Schwab Challenge as its 2021 Charity of the Year.

The WARM Place, which provides year-round grief support services to children ages 3 1/2 to 18 and their families, received the national honor. The award comes with a $30,000 grant from the PGA TOUR to support the agency’s grief support program.

Since 1989, The WARM Place has companioned over 40,000 children and their families along their grief journeys. Families are never charged a fee for services and there are no geographical limitations or time limits – families are welcome to participate as long as the children are benefiting from the program.

The PGA TOUR grant will provide a month of services, at no cost, to 240 children and their families grieving.

The Charles Schwab Challenge has made a charitable impact of more than $150 million on over 150 different organizations during the past two decades. The PGA TOUR assists approximately 3,000 charities each year. Virtually all tournaments are organized as non-profit organizations to maximize charitable giving, and to date, tournaments across all Tours have generated more than $3.2 billion.
