The Children’s Museum is excited to announce our fundraising partnership with the 2017 Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program! The Birdies for Charity program provides 501(c)(3) organizations in Connecticut the opportunity to raise funds by collecting pledges based on the number of birdies made by PGA TOUR professionals during the tournament.
At the conclusion of the tournament, the Travelers Championship will multiply the number of birdies made by the pledged amounts, and then will distribute invoices to each of our donors. For example, if an individual makes a $.02 pledge and there are 1,800 birdies made, then that individual will be asked to make a donation of $36.00. The Travelers Championship will donate 100% of the proceeds to our organization.
Join us in this exciting fundraising initiative! With your help the (nonprofit organization) will also be eligible for additional Birdies for Charity funds through the Bonus Bucks program. This year, each organization that raises money through Birdies for Charity will receive a 15% bonus on top of the pledges collected. The maximum bonus is $11,250 (which would equal 15% of $75,000 in donations collected).
In addition, the top four pledge collecting charities as of May 31, 2017, will qualify for an expo booth at the 2017 Travelers Championship, which is vital to the exposure of our organization.
Your pledge commitment to The Children’s Museum will help to fund educational opportunities for children, families and classrooms throughout Connecticut. Making a per birdie pledge or flat-rate donation is simple and easy.
Thank you for your continued support!
