#TeamUp for The Great lakes bay region

$233,500 up for grabs in one of the most unique charitable programs in the LPGA

NOTE: The application process for the program is now closed. Our committee will work to select our 33 nonprofit partners soon and will announce on this page!

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will #TeamUp with regional community foundations to select thirty-three (33) 501(c)3 nonprofits across Bay, Saginaw, Midland, and Isabella counties who have a direct, positive impact in the Great Lakes Bay Region in one of the following focus areas: STEM, Sustainability, Inclusion, and Innovation.


In total, a pool of $233,500 will be donated through this program. Once selected, each of the 33 nonprofits (7 each from Saginaw, Bay, Midland, Isabella plus 5 regional nonprofits) will be paired with 2 of the 66 teams competing in the 2020 LPGA event. Each LPGA team is worth $2,250 – guaranteeing $4,500 for each nonprofit. Teams will also have the opportunity to earn additional contributions for their nonprofits based upon how they finish.


$67,000 will be rewarded to the top ten finishing teams as follows:


  • 1st: $20,000

  • 2nd: $10,000

  • 3rd – 7th: $5,000

  • 8th – 10th: $4,000

A $3,000 donation will be awarded during the Pro-Am pairing event on Monday, July 13 through a “closest to the pin” contest. A selection of LPGA players will attempt to hit 33 golf balls, each representing a participating nonprofit. The ball that ends up closest to the pin will earn that nonprofit the bonus donation.


After tournament week, a total of three organizations will be selected for an “engaged nonprofit” award for a bonus $5,000 donation. Those selected for this award will also have a guaranteed entry to the 2021 Dow GLBI #TeamUp event.
