The American Express™ organization, Impact Through Golf Foundation provides funding to organizations that support health and wellness, education, youth and family support, homelessness, DEI and capital improvement. Since the tournament’s inception in 1960, our event has generated more than $66 Million to support approximately over 100 non-profit organizations in the Coachella Valley area.

As the charity organization of The American Express, the Impact Through Golf Foundation selects their annual beneficiaries through a carefully administered review process. Please note, during the 2024 grant cycle, the Foundation will be prioritizing larger levels of support to a smaller number of local organizations. We regret that we may not be able to continue our support for organizations that have previously received funding through this grant program.  Therefore, we encourage applicants to focus their applications on large-scale projects or multi-year initiatives that meet the criteria listed within the greater Coachella Valley area. We look forward to continuing our long history of support for non-profits serving the Coachella Valley.
