Play It for Now

The Championship has always been about impacting people. Though many have experienced bumps, maybe some sharp turns in recent months, the tournament will play to support critical causes that we and many others are passionate about:

Equal Justice Initiative

EJI is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States. Its efforts aim to challenge racial and economic injustice and protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
CDP COVID-19 Response Fund
CDP COVID-19 Response Fund >
CDP’s COVID-19 Response Fund supports nonprofits that address the pressing needs of populations that are most vulnerable to the physical health, mental health and economic impacts of the pandemic.

Supporting communities where we live, work and play is important to us and that extends to the tournament’s host community. Non-profit organizations receiving tournament monies are selected after the event.

You can’t always know what’s coming your way, but you can decide how you will play it. At American Century Investments we choose to play it with conviction. It starts with a drive to see our clients become successful and a passion to support ongoing medical research that has the potential to save lives.
