GIVING IS CARING
Sergio and Angela have been extensively engaged and committed to their foundation work, and they have made a pledge to continue and expand their activities in the future.
The Sergio Garcia Foundation was brought into being in 2002 for the purpose of contributing to the social inclusion of economically deprived children and youths through social assistance benefits and the practice of sport as free-time activity. Originating in Europe, it has supported a large variety of NGOs and humanitarian associations.
The foundation has donated over $US 2 million since its inception. All this became possible through a partnership with the European Tour and Sergio’s direct player involvement to stage a series of tournaments for the benefit of those less fortunate and in need. The tournaments were the:
2019 Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters by the Sergio Garcia Foundation
2018 & 2017 Andalucia Valderrama Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation
2016 Real Club Valderrama Open de España hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation
The 2016 Sergio & Friends in Bad Ragaz was unique, as the field consisted of Sergio’s closest friends. Highlights included a musical performance by saxophonist and Jazz legend Kenny G and a special evening emceed by golf expert and TV personality David Feherty.
“I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO BE BLESSED WITH A GIFT OF PLAYING GOLF, AND I THANK GOD FOR GIVING ME MY TALENTS. GOLF AND LIFE HAVE GIVEN ME A LOT AND I OWE IT TO SOCIETY TO GIVE BACK.
I DECIDED TO START MY OWN FOUNDATION TO HELP PEOPLE, AND ESPECIALLY CHILDREN, WHO NEED IT MOST.”
THE SERGIO AND ANGELA GARCIA FOUNDATION
Every year since 2016, Sergio and Angela Garcia have supported the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) tournament and thus many young boys and girls, who seek to develop their golfing skills at the highest level. In 2021, the Sergio and Angela Garcia Foundation Junior Championship was held at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin. Repeat winner was J. Holland Humphries in the boys division and Yunxuan (Michelle) Zhang for the girls.
“I want to thank the AJGA staff, the players, as well as the University of Texas Golf Club for this wonderful tournament. I also want to say a very special thank you to Angela for all the time and effort she put in behind the scene to create a beautiful event. See you next year,“ said Sergio Garciaafter the tournament.”
