AMCHAM ChariTee Golf Tournament 2023
International Business Community Tees Off to Raise Over Half a Million Baht for Thai University Student Scholarships
On September 22, 2023, the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AMCHAM) teed off for charity at the AMCHAM ChariTee Golf Tournament 2023 at the Alpine Golf Club. The Golf Tournament brought together the international business community raising over 550,000 baht for the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand Foundation (ATF), to support education for Thai university students across the country.
“The golf tournament is an important event for us as it not only raises critical funds for scholarship students but also brings the AMCHAM community together. Our members’ support and participation in the AMCHAM ChariTee Golf Tournament represents an important collaboration that demonstrates the international business community’s commitment to invest in the future workforce of Thailand.” said the AMCHAM Executive Director and Vice President of the ATF Heidi Gallant.
In addition to giving back to the community and making a difference in the lives of scholarship students, this highly anticipated annual event provided an excellent opportunity for AMCHAM member executives and the business community to connect and build lasting business relationships while enjoying golf at one of Thailand's top courses.
The event was generously sponsored by AIG, Citibank, Constant Energy, C.P. Group, Diageo Moet Hennessy, Griffith Foods, Johnson & Johnson, IBM, Mastercard, MedPark Hospital, Pacific Prime Consultants, Professional Corporate Services, RMA Group, Tyson International, and Western Digital. All proceeds and donations from the charity event will benefit the ATF scholarship program. ATF offers tuition support for high-achieving Thai university students from disadvantaged backgrounds. In 2024, the ATF will give scholarships to 85 students to further their studies in the Kingdom.

The ATF is recognized by the Ministry of Finance as a Public Charitable Organization (number 632) and donations are tax deductible in Thailand.
