The goal of this foundation is to contribute to the well being of the nation and the community by supporting programs that focus on building better and brighter futures for children and their families. The headquarters is located on St. Simons Island which is where Davis Love III calls home and also why the tournament is held in the Golden Isles. According to the RSM website the mission of the Davis Love Foundation is to “help build a better future for children and their families who are at risk of poor educational, economic, social and health outcomes. The Foundation provides grants and donations to community-based programs that focus on children and families in need.”

The current title sponsor is contracted with RSM, the nation’s leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, through 2020. After five years, The RSM Classic has raised more than $4.8 million to support charities focused on children and families in need.  The funds benefit many organizations including Special Olympics (National, State and Local) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia.
