It is gratifying to know that 100% of every pledge collected goes directly to your specified charity. The John Deere Foundation covers all administrative costs to make that possible. Plus, the tournament takes its profits each year and delivers a second check from between 5% and 10% of that charity’s final total to make the deal even sweeter. There is no more impactful way for you to help your favorite organization(s).

Quad Cities Golf Classic Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, EIN #93-1332421, doing business as John Deere Classic & Birdies for Charity. 
Contest & Official Rules

When you chip in to help area charities, you can win some great prizes - but your favorite charity will be the real winner! One lucky supporter of the John Deere Classic's Birdies for Charity program will win a grand prize.

Make A Donation

Online donations can be made by clicking the "DONATE NOW" button below. If you would rather make your donation by cash or check, pledges and donations can be made by finding our official Pledge Form HERE, completing and mailing to us at: 

Birdies for Charity - 15623 Coaltown Road, East Moline, IL 61244 

In 2021, we will be transitioning to flat donations only. Donors still have the opportunity to guess the number of birdies to enter the contest, but the number of birdies is no longer tied to their donation. This will complete the transaction in one simple visit, and makes for fewer touch points and quicker post-tournament reconciliation. Everyone wins! Any penny pledge received will be transitioned to a flat $20 per penny pledged. Ex. .01/birdie = $20 , .02/birdie = $40, etc

Thank you for supporting your favorite organization(s) through Birdies for Charity!

Partner Program

The Partner Program is for those generous people (donations of $1,500 and above) who don’t necessarily want to be in the contest, but still want to support their favorite charities, and the tournament. There are great benefits for both the charity and the donor.

Platinum Tee Club

The Platinum Tee Club is designed for those interested in supporting all the Birdies for Charity organizations as well as the tournament’s continued improvement.  A Platinum Tee Club donation is just a Partner Program donation that goes directly to the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund.
