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. Partner Program donations now account for over two thirds of the overall dollars collected through the Birdies for Charity program.

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, with no goods or services provided, 100% of Partner donations may be tax deductible. 

While Partner packages no longer include tickets to the tournament, Partner level donations of $1,500 or more to the Bonus Fund, Bird #1041 (also called the Platinum Tee Club) continue to include tickets to the John Deere Classic! Please consider including the Bonus Fund in your pledges so that your contributions can have TWICE the impact for our community and participating charities. 

Another benefit of the Partner program is that it offers donors tax-savvy ways to give including:  

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