Comcast Business donates $25K to PLAYERS Charity of the Day


Comcast Business, in its inaugural year as a Proud Partner of THE PLAYERS Championship made a $25,000 donation Tuesday, March 12, to the tournament’s first Charity of the Day for 2024, Five STAR Veterans Center.

“When you think Comcast Business, you think small business, you think enterprise, but our Comcast Business technology goes into our nonprofit partners, as well,” said Michelle Oyola McGovern, vice president of governmental affairs for the Florida Region of Comcast. “Five STAR Veterans has been one of those partners for a very long time. We’re really proud of that partnership.”

Jacksonville-based Five STAR Veterans Center provides homeless military veterans safe housing and supportive services to help them transition to living independently.

The check presentation was made at the Patriots’ Outpost.

McGovern explained the reason for the donation.

“They have become so needed and so popular and so necessary in the Jacksonville community that they’re working on an expansion,” she said. “We felt that it was important that there is a technology center as part of that expansion.”

In addition to the financial donation, Comcast Business donated several laptop computers to be given to the veterans as they become independent.

This year, Comcast Business joins Optum and Morgan Stanley as a Proud Partner. That arrangement will continue through 2030.

“We are, at Comcast Business, so excited about our partnership with THE PLAYERS Championship,” McGovern said.

Comcast Business is the nation’s largest cable provider to small and mid-sized businesses and one of the leading service providers to the enterprise market. It serves the local market but also has a global footprint in more than 100 countries. In the United States, it serves 2.2 million businesses.

The partnership with THE PLAYERS is an expansion of Comcast Business’s relationship with The PGA Tour. It sponsors the Comcast Business TOUR TOP 10, which rewards the top players in the FedExCup standings at the end of the FedExCup regular season.
