John Deere Classic Legacy Society

If you wish to make a lasting impact and support the John Deere Classic’s Bonus Fund promise, you have options that will help ensure we are able to continue that promise for years to come. Legacy gift options allow you to make larger gifts than you ever thought possible and they have special tax advantages such as tax savings benefits – making it easier for you to give more for less…all while knowing your gift provides vital support to the long term success of the tournament and our local Birdies for Charity program.

The John Deere Classic Endowment was established at the Quad Cities Community Foundation to help us ensure that all charities receive the minimum 5% match for years to come. By making a legacy gift to the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund you will join an elite group of individuals who create lasting philanthropic legacies, join an elite group and provide vital support to the long-term success of the tournament and our local Birdies for Charity program.

The John Deere Classic Legacy Society is part of the Quad Cities Golf Classic Charitable Foundation, the same 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that puts on the tournament and administers the Birdies for Charity program – with TAX ID: 93-1332421.
