The ISCO Championship’s charitable arm, Caddie127, connects a biblical connotation from James 1:27 “to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Just as Caddies and their players support one another, so will Caddie127 support philanthropic organizations that benefit and empower women and children. Caddie127 has named All God’s Children, Kentucky Children’s Hospital (UK Healthcare), the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Refuge for Women, Sunrise Children’s Services, and the Woodhill Community Center as their 2021 charitable partners.

Where does my registration fee go?

Volunteers are the heartbeat of the tournament and help enhance the experience for players, spectators and sponsors. All the while your registration fee goes toward helping the local community who receive charitable donations from the tournament.

The ISCO Championship has many charitable partners. Our charity umbrella is Caddie127 which empowers women and protects children in Kentucky. You can learn more about Caddie127 on our Charities page.

In the past two years of the ISCO Championship, Volunteers have helped raise $640,000 for Caddie127 and its charities. The PGA TOUR and its tournaments have surpassed $3Billion in all-time charitable giving in 2020. The charitable total, which includes a record $204.3 million in 2019 brought the all-time total to $3.05 billion, including donations made by tournaments on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica and PGA TOUR Series-China.
