Felix Auger-Aliassime will donate $5 to EduChange for every point he wins during the 2021 ATP Tour season.

Felix Announces Return Of #FAAPointsForChange In 2021

Canadian continues support for protection and education of children in Togo

Since the start of the 2019 ATP Tour season, Felix Auger-Aliassime has reached six ATP Tour finals, won 56 tour-level matches and climbed more than 80 positions in the FedEx ATP Rankings. But perhaps the most important statistic for the #NextGenATP Canadian is the 4,904 points he has won along the way.

At the beginning of his 2020 campaign, the Montreal-born star launched #FAAPointsForChange to support the protection and education of children from his father’s home country of Togo. Auger-Aliassime announced he would donate $5 for every point he won in 2020 to EduChange, who partnered with humanitarian organisation CARE.

Following the ATP Tour suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Auger-Aliassime decided to add points from his 2019 season to increase the impact of his initiative. Earlier this month, the six-time tour-level finalist took to Twitter to reveal that he would continue the project in 2021.

“I would like to give this opportunity to as many kids as I can so that they have a chance to go to school, to play sports,” said Auger-Aliassime. “It’s the basics for me, and I would like for this to be global. I wanted Togo to be the first place where I can inject support and energy.”

The #FAAPointsForChange campaign will continue to receive support from BNP Paribas, who have donated $15 for every point won by Auger-Aliassime so far. With a total of $20 raised for each of the 4,904 points the Canadian has won since 2019, the initiative has raised almost $100,000 for children in Togo.
