In golf, a birdie is a score of one stroke under par (the expected score) for any hole on the course. By pledging one cent or more for every birdie during the Valero Texas Open, or by making a straight donation of $20 or more, you can help the DSASTX. 100% of your donation will directly support our organization while keeping an eagle eye on your budget.
Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program designed by Golf San Antonio to give participating organizations the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to the participating organization. Funds are generated by soliciting pledges from individuals and corporations.
Birdies for Charity is like a walk-a-thon, but instead of donating per mile, participants make a pledge for every birdie made at the Valero Texas Open. The 2012 Valero Texas Open had 2,022 birdies made, so a pledge of $0.01 yielded a donation of $20.22. Last year the DSASTX raised over $6000 through Birdies for Charity!
Donors also have the ability to make a one-time donation and flexibility to pay in advance or be billed after the tournament. Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible.
To support the Down Syndrome Association, please visit the Birdies for Charity Donation Page where you can pledge as little as $0.01 per birdie. What a fun way to give back to the DSASTX!
The first page of the donation form is for your contact information. The second page is where you will designate the Down Syndrome Association as your charity, fill in your pledge amount, and guess the number of birdies made during the 2013 Valero Texas Open. Once you make your pledge or flat donation, you will receive a confirmation email from Birdies for Charity. Payment will be collected after the Valero Texas Open once the actual number of birdies is calculated.
