The Chevron Challenge: Supporting Human Progress Across the Houston Area

April 15, 2024

The Chevron Championship, being held this week at The Club at Carlton Woods, brings together 132 of the world’s best golfers, competing for the first major title of the LPGA Tour season. Staying true to the tournament founders’ beliefs, the week in The Woodlands aims to be about more than just the competition.

Chevron, which has been a part of the Houston community for over a century, has worked with the LPGA Foundation to contribute more than $5 million to community partners over the past two years. And this year will just add to that total. The Chevron Challenge will showcase Chevron’s investments in community organizations to enable human progress, including focus areas such as STEM education, diversity and inclusion and women’s excellence.

“For more than 100 years Chevron and the Houston community have been partnering together and we are thrilled to partner with organizations that are working to make our city an even better place,” said Al Williams, Chevron Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “As we look ahead to The Chevron Championship, we also look forward to celebrating the hard work of our 13 social investment partners, who work just as hard outside the ropes as these amazing LPGA Tour athletes do inside the ropes.”

Throughout all four days of competitive play, every birdie made on the par-3 17th hole will result in $10,000 being donated to the social investment pool. A hole-in-one would add $1 million to the pot. In 2023, LPGA Tour professional In Gee Chunthrilled fans with her ace at No. 17 on Friday and called the ensuing donation, “the best moment of my life because I am reallyhappy to help the people.”

Chevron has selected 13 social investment partners to feature in The Chevron Challenge:
