About Birdies for Charity
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Birdies for Charity is a giving platform that utilizes the excitement around the Rocket Mortgage Classic to help The Moss Foundation and other charities raise awareness and funds to support their missions. The Birdies for Charity program directs 100% of proceeds back to the participating charities, and there are no administrative fees or heavy lifting for participating organizations.
Donors will be able to direct their funds to their chosen organizations, and can either make a flat donation or pledge a set amount per birdie made by PGA TOUR players during competition rounds at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
PER BIRDIE DONATIONS
Donors can make a pledge to donate one cent or more for every birdie made by a PGA TOUR player Thursday through Sunday of the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic. In golf, “par” is the normal expected score on any given hole. Every one of the 18 holes on a golf course has its own “par” assigned to it. A “birdie” is one stroke under par for a hole.
Following the tournament, donors are invoiced and asked to donate their pledged amount. For example, if a donor pledges one cent per birdie and 1,800 birdies are made, they will receive an invoice via email for $18.00 from Rocket Giving Fund after the tournament.
On average, PGA TOUR Professionals make approximately 1,500 total brides per PGA TOUR event.
FLAT RATE DONATIONS
Donors can also make a flat donation of $10 or more to the nonprofit of their choice via credit card or check. Payments will be collected immediately.
Donors can easily donate online using a credit card or print their invoice and mail a check to the Rocket Giving Fund.
CHECK DONATIONS MUST BE:
1. Made payable to: The Rocket Giving Fund
2. Accompanied by a pledge card or an invoice received by the Birdies for Charity Online donation website
3. Sent to:
The Rocket Giving Fund
