Each year the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) partners with the Travelers Championship to participate in their Birdies for Charity fundraising program. Birdies for Charity provides 501 (c)(3) organizations in Connecticut the opportunity to raise funds and receiving a matching grant by collecting pledges based on the number of birdies made by PGA TOUR professionals during the tournament.
At the conclusion of the tournament, the Travelers Championship calculates the number of birdies made by the pledged amounts, and then distributes invoices to each of our donors. For example, if you make a $.02 pledge and there are 1,800 birdies made, then you will be asked to make a donation of $36.00 to BIAC. If you prefer, you can opt to make a flat donation in lieu of a pledge. The Travelers Championship then donates 100% of all collected donations to BIAC.
BIAC will also be eligible for additional Birdies for Charity funds through the Bonus Bucks program. In 2015, each organization that raised money through Birdies for Charity received a 15% bonus on top of the pledges collected. Please consider joining us in 2016 to help us take advantage of this great opportunity!
