The Houston Open is proud to be a PGA TOUR event that donates to local charities.
Since 2019, the Houston Open has donated over $615,000 to local non-profits. In 2020, the Houston Open launched Birdies for Charity, a fundraising program designed to give local charities the opportunity to generate contributions through the Houston Open. This year, in an effort to expand the charitable reach of the program, THINK Neurology for Kids has joined the team as the official presenting sponsor.
