In 2004, The Travelers Championship launched the Birdies for Charity program, adopting a national model that has seen great success in other markets. Today, the Birdies for Charity program continues to develop and thrive and has become an easy and effective fundraising opportunity for every 501(c)(3) organization. Birdies for Charity is a giving platform that utilizes the excitement around the Travelers Championship to help nonprofits across the region raise awareness and funds to support their missions. Thanks to the support of Webster Bank, organizations have the opportunity to receive a 15% bonus on every donation through the program.

If You are a Charity:
All registered 501(c)(3) organizations in the Northeast United States can participate once registered. You can solicit donations and know that the heavy lifting of administration and billing will be taken care of by the Travelers Championship, with no credit card or administration fees. There is no minimum amount organizations must raise to participate or receive the 15% bonus.
If You are a Charity Donor:
It is gratifying to know that 100% of every donation collected goes directly to your specified charity. All administrative costs and online fees are covered to make this possible. Plus, through the Bonus Bucks Pool, the tournament is able to give every charity an additional 15% of every donation to make the deal even sweeter.
