As title sponsor, Cognizant's mission is to help the event do more than just commemorate the past, but also showcase the female players of today and their efforts to build a stronger platform for the next generation of golfers.
With this goal in mind, the Cognizant Founders Cup will offer a
$3-million purse, making it the largest of any LPGA Tour event outside of the majors and the CME Group Tour Championship.
The LPGA Cognizant Founders Cup has become one of the most well attended and celebrated events on the Tour calendar.
The event pays homage to the Tour’s rich history and the 13 women—known as the Founders—who created the LPGA Tour over 70 years ago.
The 2021 Cognizant Founders Cup is scheduled to take place October 7-10 at Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, NJ.
The Donald Ross-designed course has a rich history of women's golf and credits one-third of all rounds played at the course to female golfers, which is important to Cognizant's commitment to inclusion and aim to elevate the game of golf for all individuals.
The primary beneficiary of the Cognizant Founders Cup is the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program.
Over the past 10 years, the Cognizant Founders Cup has raised nearly $4 million for the organization. Those donations have enabled Girls Golf to add 34 new sites and support growing locations that doubled in size.
