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).

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

The deadline for Birdies for Charity pledges and donations was July 12, 2020. We are no longer accepting new pledges or donations at this time for the 2020 cycle.

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.
