Every spring, 64 top-ranked professional golfers travel from around the globe to Austin, TX for Dell Technologies Match Play. Since its move to Austin, Dell Technologies and the PGA TOUR have generated more than $2 million in charitable proceeds to benefit Austin Parks Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of the Austin Area, The First Tee, Helping Hand Home for Children, and Keep Austin Beautiful.

    

Volunteers from Dell Technologies walk City Council Member, Ora Houston around the grounds of LBJ High School while other volunteers work to mulch tress and landscape gardens.

It’s no secret that golf fans love greens, making our partnership a perfect match. Keep Austin Beautiful is committed to Austin’s outdoor spaces, engaging thousands of volunteers in the beautification of their communities.

Community members, Dell Technologies Volunteers, and students from the high school work to remove weeds and replace them with native plants and mulch. 

Charitable proceeds generated by Dell Technologies Match Play are amplifying these efforts, allowing Keep Austin Beautiful to take its neighborhood transformations to the next level. The organization is working with local administrators, students, and neighbors to create exceptional school campuses with more open space, opportunities for outdoor recreation, and native landscaping at LBJ High School and Barbara Jordan Elementary School.

Thank you to everyone who showed their support at Dell Technologies Match Play! The tournament gives back to Dell’s hometown, supporting health, wellness, and academic achievement for Austin’s youth. So whether you were a fan, spectator, sponsor, or volunteer at the tournament, your participation played an enormous role. Your investment supports the future of our great city. We can’t wait to see you next year!

This year’s Charity Check Presentation takes place on Tuesday, September 26th from 3:30 – 5:30pm at Colony Park. Photos and updates to be added to this page.
