What is Birdies for Charlotte Charities?
This year, the Wells Fargo Championship is introducing a new fundraising program called the Birdies for Charlotte Charities (BFCC). This program will give participating charities the opportunity to generate contributions for their organization based on the number of “birdies” made by PGA TOUR professionals during the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 3-9, 2021.
How it Works
Upon completion of the tournament, each charity will receive 100% of the amount pledged by donors, as well as an additional contribution equal to 5% of the participating charities fundraising total. As an example, if a charity raised $20,000 total, the Wells Fargo Championship will provide a 5% match of $1,000 for a total raised of $21,000. The individual donor who successfully guesses the exact number of birdies will be awarded a Grand Prize. In the event of a tie there will be an audited blind drawing to determine the winner.
How to Donate
Make a pledge of one cent or more for every “Birdie” made by the PGA TOUR Pros during the Wells Fargo Championship. If 1,500 birdies are made during the 2021 event (in 2019, there were a total of 1,434 birdies made during the Wells Fargo Championship), here are the totals for some typical pledge amounts:
- 1 cent pledge = $15 total pledge
- 3 cents pledge = $45 total pledge
- 10 cents pledge = $150 total pledge
- $1.00 pledge = $1,500 total pledge
You can also make a flat donation not tied to birdies. For flat donations, the minimum is $20.
The minimum birdie pledge is $.01 and the maximum pledge is $1.00. The last day to submit a pledge is Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
All donations are tax-deductible. When completing payment online, donors will receive an automatic email with a donation confirmation & receipt that can be used for tax purposes. Mailed donations will receive an emailed receipt after payment has been received and processed.
