Learn more about this year's charitable beneficiaries and how we're working to connect the community.
Connect 313 Fund
The Connect 313 Fund was formed in 2020 to coordinate and support city-wide digital inclusion efforts with a data-driven, community-based philosophy. The Connect 313 Fund was launched at the Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA TOUR event as part of the tournament's "Changing the Course" initiative.
CONNECT 313 is a citywide, data-driven inclusion strategy that brings countless organizations together with the bold goal to make Detroit a national model for digital inclusion and ensure all Detroiters can access the digital world and opportunity it brings. This operation is made possible by a partnership between the Rocket Mortgage Classic, Rocket Community Fund, Microsoft, City of Detroit and others.
Local Youth Programs
The Rocket Mortgage Classic supports local youth programs in the community, including Midnight Golf, Detroit Police Athletic League and First Tee of Greater Detroit, all of which support initiatives that help improve the lives of children in Michigan.
Greater Palmer Park Community
