Birdies for Charity Fund
Birdies for Charities Fund BONUS
As before, the tournament will provide a bonus to all participating charities. This year, all charities will be guaranteed a 5% bonus on amounts up to their prior year pledge total, or $100,000, whichever is greater. Additional bonus dollars will be based on tournament revenues. The Birdies for Charity Fund is the source of these bonus dollars. This fund is supported with dollars from tournament revenues, individual donors, and with the support of corporations through a "Charity Partner" program. These dollars will be distributed annually, and are designed not to compete with, but to enhance the benefits for the 500+ charities that participate in the program. So, if you are not already participating, this is the year to hop on board.
Last year, all participating organizations received an 8% bonus...well above the 5% promised!
Charities must be publicly supported and recognized by the IRS as a 501(C)(3) organization. All charitable contributions must come from a designed donor and must not be part of a capital campaign. The Birdies for Charity program is intended to support charitable organizations, services, operations, and programs. It is not intended to be used for endowment or brick and mortar charitable purposes.
