“Swing for Good” Raises $1.1 M for Youth-Focused Charities
In 2016, the JetBlue Swing for Good golf tournament and Bid for Good online charitable auction raised close to $1.1 million for three charities through contributions from business partners, participating customers, and the general public. The golf classic is the company’s largest fundraiser of the year to build awareness and benefit our charitable partners.
- DoSomething.org empowers young people to take action in their community around multiple causes.
- Together We Rise focuses on transforming the way youth navigate America’s foster care system.
- The JetBlue Foundation (a JetBlue company-sponsored foundation) advances aviation-related and STEM education for underserved students.
“Youth, education, and community are core pillars of our corporate responsibility platform. Our dedication to the communities we serve goes beyond one day on the golf course. The funds raised will encourage service as well as STEM and aviation education for years to come.”
—Robin Hayes, President & CEO, JetBlue
