#NextGenATP Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime has taken the ATP Tour by storm on the court. But in 2020, he’s doing so off the court, too.
The 19-year-old announced Friday that he will be donating $5 for every point he wins this season to EduChange, partnering with CARE to support the protection and education of children in Togo.
Extremely proud to announce that each point I win during the season will contribute to the education of children in Togo, thanks to the #FAAPointsForChange project with @BNPParibas and @CARE. Details in this video! pic.twitter.com/DJRFggyphZ

“I feel very lucky to have had a hugely satisfying career so far, but I think it’s time to bring more meaning to it beyond tennis,” Auger-Aliassime said. “This year, all my winning points count.”
BNP Paribas will donate $15 for every point Auger-Aliassime wins. The World No. 21 has won 768 points in 10 matches so far this year. And as he continues his ascent up the FedEx ATP Rankings, Auger-Aliassime will have more motivation than ever, as he is trying to raise funds for 2,500 children in 2020.
“This year, more than ever, every point will matter,” Auger-Aliassime said.
