“We were informed about Birdies for Charity by one of our supporters. We were excited to get involved, as Mission Gait focuses on helping those with complex gait disabilities and golf is a great rehabilitation tool. Birdies for Charity is a fantastic fund raising opportunity with the bonus of a 10% match. Being connected to the prestigious Dominion Energy Charity Classic really helps us bring attention to our work and awareness to our efforts. ”

“The First Tee of Greater Richmond is a proud supporter and participant in the Birdies for Charity program. Not only does it give organizations the opportunity to receive 10% more on their donations but it is also a well -organized way for local nonprofits to connect with a larger community through a valued partner, the PGA TOUR.

- Sue Farrell, Boots to Suits Founder & Director

“I cannot begin to describe how Boot to Suits participation in Birdies for Charity presented by TowneBank, offered in conjunct ion with the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, impacts the success of our program to Veterans. With the wonderful guidance and marketing materials provided, our fundraising not only exposed our non-profit to a broad range of potential donors but ultimately assisted us in raising the revenue our non-profit needed to provide free services to our Veterans for 2017 and 2018. It is a game changer for us, I would strongly recommend to other local charities to take advantage of this unique opportunity and hopefully allow your program to realize the success our program was so fortunate to experience. We look forward to participating again. ”
