LIV GOLF SUPPORTS SOUTH FLORIDA COMMUNITIES AHEAD OF TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
Written by LIV GOLF STAFF
MIAMI – In the lead up to LIV Golf’s season-ending Team Championship that tees-off today, LIV Golf announced support for 13 charitable organizations serving the Miami area and surrounding South Florida communities. The support is part of LIV to Give, LIV Golf’s nonprofit impact platform announced in June to establish and strengthen a range of initiatives, including education and youth development, sustainability, and programs that enhance the wellbeing of communities around the world.
Earlier this month, LIV Golf extended its support to disaster relief efforts to help Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian. This week, LIV Golf will continue to support families affected by the hurricane through fan engagement at the tournament, where 54% of revenue generated through team merchandise sales, as well as funds raised through chipping challenges and activations in the Fan Village, will be contributed to hurricane relief.
“It’s been a challenging time for so many Floridians, including our neighbors and loved ones,” said LIV Golf President & COO Atul Khosla. “Not only is Florida host to the LIV Golf Team Championship this week, but LIV calls Florida home and many of our employees and golfers are Floridians. LIV to Give is proud to partner with organizations committed to real impact in the Sunshine State.”
This week, LIV Golf is extending support to the following charities through LIV to Give:
Amigos for Kids: Expanding after-school programs and summer camp programs
Boys & Girls Club of Miami-Dade: Supporting “Project Learn” & “Great Futures for Teens” programs
Business & Community Networker: Providing access to training opportunities, internships and scholarships

Colombian American Service Association: Expanding access for low-income immigrants to legal representation and educational services

Voices for Children Foundation: Facilitating access to golf for youth in foster care in the Miami community
Among the beneficiaries of this week’s LIV to Give efforts is the Voices for Children Foundation, a nonprofit in collaboration with the Guardian ad Litem program that transforms the lives of children in foster care.
“Voices For Children Foundation believes that sports activities, such as golf, should be accessible to all children, regardless of circumstance. We are grateful for LIV to Give and LIV Golf for the investment in helping reduce the barriers for youth in foster care to not only learn how to play golf, but to ensure they have the equipment and apparel necessary to participate,” said Kadie Black, President & CEO. “Children in foster care will benefit greatly from the social, physical, and emotional benefits that golf has to offer.”
Added Britany Ziems, Executive Director of the nonprofit Amigos for Kids: "Our organization feels honored to be supported by the LIV to Give charitable initiative. We're thrilled that this new partnership will allow us to continue to provide environmental education and awareness initiatives in our South Florida community.”
LIV Golf’s impact efforts continued with on-site golf clinics hosted by players and local instructors at Trump National Doral Golf Club. On Wednesday, LIV Golf players Scott Vincent and Bernd Weisberger hosted athletes from Jackson Hospital’s Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center and the Miami VA Hospital in partnership with Adaptive Golfers, a non-profit that empowers individuals with a range of cognitive, physical, sensory, and health-related challenges to use the game of golf as a tool to improve the quality of their lives. On Friday, LIV Golf will host the Hispanic Women’s Society Network of the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for a networking event and golf clinic hosted by players Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz.
