The third edition of Capital One’s The Match raises awareness for equality and inclusion in sports with this year’s donations going to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Stephen Curry and Michelle Wie West joined the company earlier this year as investors, partners, and global faces of the brand. They both embody OXIGEN’s vision to better serve communities so together, we all Recover + Rise. The charitable efforts of Capital One’s The Match and OXIGEN’s commitment to social good align seamlessly, resulting in the perfect partnership match.

“I am inspired by Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Change mission and participating this year is very special for many reasons,” said Stephen Curry, OXIGEN Owner and three-time NBA Champion. “Giving back is especially important this year and I am proud to be joining forces with OXIGEN in support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities this year.”

OXIGEN Owner and LPGA Golfer Michelle Wie West said, “Golf runs in my blood and whenever it’s backed by incredible initiatives like the support for HBCUs, it really holds a special place in my heart. Being a new mom has helped me realize the kind of world I want my daughter to grow up in – one where we help each other Recover + Rise.”

“We couldn’t feel more honored to partner with Capital One’s The Match this year to support their mission to strengthen the efforts of Historically Black Colleges and Universities nationwide,” said OXIGEN Founder and CEO Blair Bentham. “We are so fortune that our owners, Stephen Curry and Michelle Wie West, harbor OXIGEN’s commitment to social good to not only amplify the importance of diversity and inclusion in sports, but highlight what it means to rise together.”
