Local charitable organizations receive funding from the Wichita Open in the following ways:

  • Events: The Wichita Open hosts and administers events for local charities during tournament week.
  • Volunteer Partnerships: Local charities perform volunteer tasks during tournament week in return for a charitable contribution.
  • Ticket Sales:  As part of a ChariTee Ticket program, local charities and athletic teams sell grounds passes to tournament play and receive back 100% of their purchases. Over 20 youth athletic teams and non-profits participate annually.
