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.  That frees up capital for spectator improvements while ensuring charities get the high end of the bonus promise.  As a 501 (C) (3) organization, donations made here have the same tax advantages as any other donation made to one of our participating organizations.

Twice the impact – The John Deere Foundation believes strongly enough in this initiative that it has set aside a matching fund to provide a dollar for dollar match for any donation made through the program up to $325,000.

"We hope our promise to match your donation dollar for dollar underscores how strongly we feel about the future of the John Deere Classic and all the benefits it annually delivers to our region. I’d like to personally extend an invitation to partner with us to make the John Deere Classic a continued success." 

- Sam Allen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Deere & Company

"As a small business owner we make donations to many local charities. We also, however, say no to many others since there are only so many dollars to go around. By designating a portion of our Partner donation to the Birdies for Charity Fund, we are able to support hundreds of charities at the same time."

- Mike Vonderhaar, President, Miller Container
