Birdies for Charity
An event every month that begins at 12:00am on day 1 of the month, repeating until May 1, 2018
The Birdies for Charity program is an opportunity for charitable organizations to utilize the awareness and magnitude of a PGA TOUR event to further their fundraising initiatives. The FORT WORTH Invitational Tournament is excited to offer this program to partner with 501 (c) 3 charitable organizations that contribute so much to the Tarrant County community. The program generated over $12 million for Tarrant County charities in 2017, recognized as one of the top Birdies for Charity programs on the PGA TOUR.
The concept is simple: Charitable Organizations solicit pledges from individuals and corporations for every birdie made during the FORT WORTH Invitational Tournament. In 2017, 1,134 birdies were recorded during the tournament. As a bonus, charities have the opportunity to earn additional contributions from our Matching Fund. The Matching Fund is distributed based on a pro-rata basis of total pledges collected. In 2017, the total Matching Fund exceeded $200,000 thanks to the generous support of our Lead Sponsors and Colonial Country Club. We are challenging the Tarrant County corporate community as supporting sponsors to assist us in growing our Matching Fund in 2018. 100% of our Lead and Friends of Birdies contributions is distributed to the charities.
