The Tiger Woods Foundation is excited to announce plans to expand services and programs for children from military families.
In celebration of Veterans Day, the Tiger Woods Foundation is fundraising for this critical cause from Nov. 6-8, where donations as little as $1 will help bring vital support for children of the U.S. military.
“As a proud supporter of the men and women in our Armed Forces, Intelligent Decisions is very proud to match every donation dollar for dollar,” Harry Martin said. “These programs not only provide excellent educational experiences, but also a sense of community for the children whose families sacrifice so much for our freedom.”
To date, the Tiger Woods Foundation has served children from military families through the Earl Woods Scholarship Program and the Tiger Woods Learning Centers, with programs and services designed specifically for them. This includes the Foundation’s award-winning STEM-based curricula, which offers a variety of hands-on activities, including fingerprinting, DNA analysis, hair and fiber analysis and chromatography. Further, military families are supported via the Earl Woods Scholarship Program, where 100 percent of scholars graduate with a bachelor’s degree.
“My wife and I cannot express our heartfelt gratitude enough to the staff and the generosity of those who provided a scholarship for my son,” said a parent of a TWLC Military Summer Academy participant whose child attended at no cost to the family. “There was no way I could have afforded this camp for him, and this opportunity was ‘once in a lifetime.’”
Donations will help provide classroom materials, including pH testing kits, DNA analysis and fingerprint identification equipment, microscopes and digital portrait software. For example: $5 provides a student with evidence collection materials, $10 provides diffraction glasses for 50 students, $20 provides DNA analysis equipment for 25 students, $50 outfits a class with fingerprint identification supplies, $100 supplies each student with pH testing kits, $250 creates simulated forensic lab for up to 200 students, $500 provides digital portrait software and $1,000 provides microscopes for 10 students.
The fundraising campaign will be conducted on TigerWoodsFoundation.org, and every dollar will be matched by Intelligent Decisions. Participants from around the world can contribute as little as $1 directly to the TWLC military curriculum.
The three-day campaign, beginning Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 9 a.m. ET, will conclude Friday, Nov. 8, at 5 p.m. ET. In addition, everyone who donates will receive an exclusive Tiger Woods personalized, digitally autographed Digigraph photo, as THANKS for their generous support!
