BOLTON, Mass – LIV Golf has announced support for Massachusetts communities through nine charitable organizations within the Boston, Bolton, Lancaster and surrounding areas as part of the LIV Golf Invitational Boston September 2-4 at The International. The donations are aligned with the LIV to Give platform, LIV Golf’s overarching commitment to making a positive impact through support of education and career development, environmental sustainability, and golf programs that create positive change and enhance the well-being of communities now and in the future.

LIV Golf is committed to giving back and investing in organizations that build stronger communities,” said Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of LIV Golf. “We are privileged to host such an exciting event in Massachusetts and are proud to support so many deserving charities that deliver much-needed services throughout this region.”

Among the beneficiaries is the Bolton Conservation Trust, which helps maintain the rural nature of the town by engaging the community through events, environmental education programs and land stewardship. The Trust also bridges communications among landowners, public officials, and financing interests.


“This generous donation will have a direct impact on our continuing efforts to protect open space. Our team will expand the environmental component of our Tom Denney Nature Camp by revamping the curriculum, upgrading the facilities, and offering more scholarships for those families in need,” said Dan Gaffney, Bolton Conservation Trust President. “We will re-start our Four Winds environmental enrichment program, which was taught in the K-5 elementary classrooms and brings a very hands-on environmental experience back to hundreds of young students.”

Coaching4Change (C4C) provides a near-peer mentoring model that recruits, trains and places local, diverse, and talented college students to support school improvement initiatives aimed at increasing student engagement and social-emotional learning in underprivileged schools.

“We are grateful to be able to expand our mentoring programs and positively influence the lives of more young people,” said Marquis Taylor, C4C CEO and Founder. “This donation enables us to reach nearly 800 more students at five middle schools in New Bedford and Lawrence.”

* Bolton Conservation Trust to fund trail maintenance, environmental and educational programs, and support land stewardship in the town of Bolton.

* Coaching4Change to provide low-income students critical mentorship services, empowering youth with life skills that unlock success.

* Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation to fund scholarships to special operations vets as they transition out of service and into employment opportunities.

* Boys and Girls Club of Assabet Valley to fund after-school and summer programs, STEM education materials and supplies, and partnership with the local museum to provide enhanced instruction.
