Golf is a key driver of charitable giving around the world with large philanthropic contributions, including those from professional tournaments, that make giving to charity a huge part of the sport. Many of the golf clubs in the UAE and globally recognised tournaments have dedicated proceeds to Al Jalila Foundation healthcare programs over the years.
This year, we are delighted to have gained recognition from one of the world’s greatest up and coming young professional golfers, Renato Paratore, who donated GBP 10,000 of his European Tour winnings to our Ta’alouf program to empower children of determination.
We recently welcomed Renato to Al Jalila Foundation to have his name engraved on Bassmat Rashid Bin Saeed donor recognition wall alongside fellow champions of hope. Renato is the first professional golfer to put his name on the first-of-its-kind ‘wall of fame’ leaving his mark on the future of medicine.
Famous sports personalities have been known to make significant charitable contributions and it is inspiring to see the next generation of golf superstars continue in this tradition. Leading by example is truly what it is all about and we wish Renato many more victories on the golf course and look forward to welcoming him to Al Jalila Foundation again.
