As you may have heard or seen recently on our social media channels, Birdies for Charity is now Champions fore Charity
. The fundamentals of the program has not changed, but with the elimination of the “pledge” component from the 2019 campaign, it provides the opportunity to rebrand. This simplifies the explanation of the donation process for charities and welcomes donors to contribute to their charity and/or school program of choice without the need to understand or have an affinity towards golf.
If we told you that non-profit agencies and school programs could make 107% revenue from a fundraising event and incur no operating costs outside of staff time, would we capture your interest? Identifying fundraising strategies can be challenging as the costs to execute an event often exceed the capacity to raise $$$s.
Champions fore Charity
is unique in that there are NO COSTS
except staff time… and participating organizations receive 100% of funds generated
and sometimes more with incentives offered, like a 7% match provided by Valero Texas Open and the Champions program partners.
Funds are generated by soliciting donations from individuals and corporations with the flexibility to pay in advance or to be billed after the tournament. Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible, thanks to the Valero Texas Open’s non-profit 501(c)3 status.
Registration to participate in the 2019-2020 fundraising campaign for charities and schools is underway. All types of philanthropies, as well as, school programs like athletic teams, dance & cheer, science programs, PTA, Project Graduation and much more… are all welcome to participate. In fact, we had 234 charities from all over San Antonio and beyond participate last season. We look forward to helping more charities raise funds!
There are many benefits for organizations to register and participate:
|There is zero risk to get involved|
|No cost to register and participate in the fundraising program (no registration fees nor merchant fees)|
|100% of the funds raised through the fundraising campaign goes directly back to participating organizations|
|By raising a minimum of $1,000+, participating charities and schools can earn an additional 7% match on what’s collected in the program|
|Donors have a chance to win prizes|
|Opportunities to earn additional funds through a variety of incentives offered|
If you know of a charity or school that isn’t already involved, please encourage them to participate in this great community initiative. Champions fore Charity
will kick off October 7. Click here
