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.
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.

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.

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.
The Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund is the source of the guaranteed 5% bonus to all participating charities. The Bonus Fund is supported with dollars from tournament revenues, special events, direct donations, and a generous matching grant from the John Deere Foundation. This year, all charities will be guaranteed a 5% bonus on amounts up to their prior year pledge total, or $100,000, whichever is greater.
