Since 2013, the Shaw Charity Classic has raised more than $13.8 million for over 125 children and youth charities in Alberta. For four straight years, the Shaw Charity Classic has set a record for charitable giving on the PGA TOUR Champions. In 2016, the tournament raised over $5.2 million shattering its previous 2015 record of $4 million. In 2017, the tournament is aiming to set another record as it provides contributions to nine official charity partners and 155 participating Birdies for Kids charities. The program will match up to 50%. A donation of $20 will provide $30 to Start2Finish, and along with other sponsors will equip a child with running shoes, books and a technical shirt.
