MAKING AN IMPACT
With support from the NEXUS Cup over the last four years, TGR Foundation has built its impact on youth as all proceeds from the event benefit programs that help students learn, grow and thrive. Thanks to NEXUS Luxury Collective and all our participants for supporting the event and driving meaningful impact in the lives of youth.
Founded in 1996 by Tiger Woods, TGR Foundation believes everyone can be a champion. With a commitment to a world where opportunity is universal and potential is limitless, TGR Foundation’s mission is to empower students to pursue their passions through education. Its signature programs serve youth from under-resourced communities, providing access to education and opportunities to prepare for their future.
“When I was a kid, my parents instilled a core principle in my life: try to make an impact in one person’s life, every day. At TGR Foundation, we are doing just that, making a meaningful impact on the lives of youth one day at a time.”
– Tiger Woods, Founder TGR Foundation
TGR Learning Lab
Built from Tigers’ vision to create a safe space for youth to “learn, grow and chase after their dreams,” the flagship TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim, CA has supported youth from Southern California for more than 17 years.
The newly renovated 35,000-square-foot campus provides access to technology, modern workspaces, classes and workshops in an inspiring environment. Through hands-on learning experiences, enrichment and support, students are empowered to discover their passions and pursue their dreams.
School day programming introduces elementary students to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects and relevant careers. Middle and high school students benefit from after-school classes and opportunities that enhance their education while exploring careers in STEM and beyond. College access and career readiness programs prepare high school and college students for higher education and the workforce.
TGR Foundation is expanding its impact with new Learning Lab facilities in Philadelphia, PA in 2024 and Los Angeles, CA in 2025.
TGR Learning Lab at Cobbs Creek
In partnership with the Cobbs Creek Foundation, TGR Foundation will provide access to education and opportunities for youth in Philadelphia through a new 30,000-square-foot TGR Learning Lab on the Cobbs Creek campus. Set to open in late 2024, the campus will support the community through innovative education, college access, career readiness and golf programs, empowering youth to discover and achieve their fullest potential.
Los Angeles, CA
TGR Learning Lab at LuLu’s Place
Opening doors of opportunity for Los Angeles youth at the new Lulu’s Place campus, TGR Foundation is partnering with the Kimmelman Family Foundation and USTA for it’s third TGR Learning Lab opening in 2025. Through the 25,000-square-foot facility at Lulu’s Place students and families will receive access to high-quality facilities and programs focused on education, college access, career readiness, health and wellness.
Champions for Youth
TGR Foundation has supported over 185,000 students through programs offered at the TGR Learning Lab and its award-winning Earl Woods Scholar Program, which provides college-bound students the holistic support needed to thrive throughout their journey to graduation.
Among the students impacted by TGR Foundation are Natan Santos and Ariana Perez.
Natan is an Earl Woods Scholar Alumnus whose passions for fashion, business and social impact motivated him from an early age. With support from the Earl Woods Scholar Program, Natan built transferrable skills and gained support to navigate his journey as a first-generation college student. As the son of immigrants, his parent’s sacrifices and work ethic motivated him to pursue his dreams of working for Converse with diligence.
From building his first clothing line at 14 to creating opportunities to highlight creatives and give back, Natan has a history of uplifting his community while striving for his own successes. After overcoming countless obstacles and more than 50 requests to Converse contacts, he secured an internship at his dream company and graduated from Dartmouth University with an offer to join the company in the North America Entertainment, Culture and Influencer Marketing Department. After three years at Converse and dream fulfilled, Natan recently accepted a position at Pizza Hut where he’ll use his skills and expertise as a global marketing manager. When reflecting on his journey he credits TGR Foundation for “taking a chance on a kid from Boston and making him believe he could do anything.”
Ariana has been a TGR Learning Lab member since 5th grade, where she utilized the programs offered including STEM classes, academic support, college preparation and golf to discover her passion for golf and cyber security and nurture those interests with a plan for her future.
Through the Learning Lab, she has gained the confidence, knowledge and skills needed to follow her passions on and off the golf course. In 2022 she was invited to participate in the inaugural TGR JR Invitational presented by TaylorMade and served as the first tee starter during the 2023 Genesis Invitational final round. Upon graduation, she plans to attend the Naval Academy and later become a cybersecurity attorney.
Inspired by Tiger’s legacy on and off the golf course, TGR Foundation believes everyone can be a champion. Join us to empower more students to pursue their passions through education.
