TITLE Sponsor:

The Cologuard Classic by Exact Sciences is more than a golf tournament. The tournament’s mission is to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of screening. Through this event, Exact Sciences aims to bring the advocacy community together while also recognizing and celebrating patients, survivors, and caregivers.

 

CHARITIES:

Giving back is at the heart of the Tucson Conquistadores and the PGA TOUR Champions. The Tucson Conquistadores are honored to have served and support our community for over 60 years by providing life enhancing opportunities to local youth through amateur athletics and special needs sports programs.

We accomplish our mission through various fundraising activities which include hosting the Cologuard Classic – with tournament proceeds supporting colon cancer awareness and Tucson youth sports – as well as charitable giving through our Tucson Conquistadores Foundation and by donating time, energy and funds to Southern Arizona youth-and-sports-oriented charities, non-profits, and programs including The First Tee, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Special Olympics, YMCA, local schools and hundreds more.

 

LOCAL IMPACT:

Net proceeds from this tournament – almost $800k in 2023 – go directly to youth charities in Southern Arizona.

Beyond the estimated $25+ million annual economic impact to Southern Arizona and more than $37 million given to youth athletic programs since 1962, when you support the Cologuard Classic and the Tucson Conquistadores, you are providing underprivileged, underserved and special needs children the chance to participate in sports and to benefit from the physical, social, leadership, and character development that youth sports brings to their lives.

This PGA TOUR Champions event – and the efforts of Tucson Conquistadores, tournament volunteers and over 1,500 Southern Arizona businesses, sponsors and community partners – has helped hundreds of local charities and made a difference in thousands of individual lives.
