Charities and Causes

The Western & Southern Open has been played for the benefit of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center since 1974. Cincinnati Children's is one of the premier pediatric hospitals in the nation. As champions of a partnership between patient, family, and the medical team, it emphasises the collaborative relationship between all involved in order to provide the best medical outcomes possible.

The tournament also supports the Dragonfly Foundation, which works exclusively with children at Cincinnati Children's to provide comfort and joy to kids and young adults with cancer and blood diseases. Its services fall into three categories: gifting programs for patients, families and hospitals; caring and support programs; and social events and entertainment.


Donations from the Western & Southern Open to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital have exceeded $7 million since 1974. From its inception to 1987, proceeds supported Treatment Center II, serving approximately 11,000 patients in the dermatology, audiology, and ear, nose and throat clinics.

From 1987 to the present, funds from the tournament have supported the Five Plus Clinic, a follow-up program for long-term survivors of childhood cancer. The clinic provides care for patients who have successfully overcome cancer and who require on-going follow-up visits with pediatric specialists. 

At the end of 2012, it was announced that in 2013, the Western & Southern Open will receive a $10,000 grant from ATP ACES For Charity.
