Upper Deck amplifies support of TGR Foundation education programs through sales of Tiger Woods memorabilia

Proceeds will provide underserved youth with resources and support needed to thrive in school and beyond

Carlsbad, Calif. (August 25, 2020) – When golf icon Tiger Woods established TGR Foundation along with his late father Earl, he did so with a vision of a world where opportunity is universal, and potential is limitless for all youth. Upper Deck has been a proud supporter of TGR Foundation for years and is now launching a campaign that offers fans and collectors an opportunity to play a part in Tiger’s life-changing initiatives.

Individuals and businesses can support TGR Foundation's mission to help students pursue their passions through education by purchasing authentic, autographed memorabilia from Upper Deck’s exclusive Tiger Woods Collection. A percentage of proceeds from every sale will help TGR Foundation provide underserved students with the resources and support needed to pursue and achieve success in school and beyond.

For over two decades, TGR Foundation has been a pioneer in positive youth development, encouraging self-advocacy skills and a growth mindset for students to thrive. To date, TGR Foundation has reached over one million youth, teachers and families around the world.

“We believe that if we give every student access to educational resources and show them that their self-worth is not defined by where they come from or the color of their skin, they will be unstoppable.” – Tiger Woods
