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. Simply stated, a Partner Program pledge is a direct donation to a specified charity that also offers tournament credentials to the donor.  There are great benefits for both the charity and the donor. 

If you are a charity:

If your supporters are not already familiar with the Partner Program you need  to tell them. You will both benefit. They, with the addition of tournament credentials tied to their donation. You, by receiving 100 cents of each dollar they donate, plus a 5%-10% bonus from the tournament’s profits on that same money. For these reasons, Partner Program donations now account for over two thirds of the overall dollars collected through the Birdies for Charity program.  It’s a great deal for everyone. 

If you are a donor:

Your generosity is rewarded three-fold through a Partner Program donation. First, you are guaranteed that 100 cents of every dollar you donate gets to that charity thanks to the John Deere Foundation paying all administrative costs. Second, you are providing extra support to your charity because every dollar they receive qualifies for at least a 5% bonus payment after the tournament is over. Finally, you may receive John Deere Classic credentials tied to the various levels giving. 

NOTE: Pledges and payments without charity designation and donor detail will be applied to the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund benefiting all participating organizations.
