Since 1997, the Valero Texas Open has helped hundreds of local non-profit charities and schools raise money through Birdies for Charity. This is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to participating organizations. Donors make a pledge for every birdie made during the Valero Texas Open tournament week. Last year there were 2, 103 birdies made, so a $0.01 pledge yielded a donation of $21.03. This unique and engaging platform also provides the option to make a one-time contribution in lieu of a pledge. Historically, 98% of funds raised were on-time contributions. Recommended pledges are $.01-$.04/birdie for individuals and $.50-$1.00/birdie for corporations. Recommended one-time contributions are $20 for individuals and $1,000 for corporations.
All contributions and pledges can be paid in advance or be billed after the tournament. Remember: all financial contributions are 100% tax deductible.
