As the proud presenting sponsor of the Els for Autism Golf Challenge, SAP is honored to be partnered with Ernie Els, our consummate golf ambassador, and his commitment to serving the autistic community. Since it’s inception in 2009, SAP has been supporting the Els for Autism Foundation in reaching its $30 Million fundraising goal to create the Els for Autism Center of Excellence. Together we are creating opportunities and building a better future for people with Autism. 

Ernie is an outstanding representative of the SAP brand, sharing in our vision to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. Ernie reflects this ambition by promoting good sportsmanship, supporting the fight against autism, and continuing to raise the bar as a stellar athlete. Over the past 20 plus years, his career has continued to reach new levels of excellence.

At SAP, we demonstrate a commitment to our vision not only through our product and solution portfolio, but by donating our skills, and engaging our vast network and company resources to support the communities where we live and work. 

Corporate Social Responsibility is woven into the fabric of SAP’s culture. This is most evident each October through our SAP Global Month of Service, now in its tenth year of celebrating volunteer activities within our communities. We are delighted that the Els for Autism Grand Finale weekend coincides with this special month of focused community commitment.

To Ernie and Liezl, your vision and commitment to helping those impacted by autism parallels no other. SAP is honored to support your passion for employing the unique talents of people with autism within our own organization to make the word a better place.

Congratulations on yet another tremendous year of excellence.
