More than a golf tournament, The Dogwood Invitational partners with external sponsors in an effort to raise funds and awareness to help junior golf succeed. The Atlanta Junior Golf Association and the Wayne Reynolds Scholarship Foundation are beneficiaries of the tournament. In support of these deserving charities, the Dogwood helps Atlanta Junior Golf to expand its programs throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area and continue teaching kids the game. The Reynolds Scholarship Foundation helps qualified junior golfers with their college tuition. Established in 1996, the Foundation and the Dogwood Invitational work to award deserving students a $12,000, 4-year college scholarship.

The future of professional golf can be seen on the Druid Hills links during the Dogwood. Past players include: Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Kyle Stanley, Matt Kuchar, Eric Compton, Hunter Mahan, Lucas Glover and Harris English to name a few.
