Birdies for Charity


Birdies for Charity presented by TowneBank is a charitable arm of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic and helps the tournament fulfill its mission to make a positive impact in the community. Birdies for Charity is a fundraising platform that enables Richmond-area charitable organizations to receive a 10% bonus on charitable contributions. Participating charities will receive all gifts collected on their behalf, minus credit card fees, plus the additional 10% in three payment distributions throughout the year. All bonus funds will be included in the final payment distribution in December. The 2023 program will launch this spring on Wednesday, May 3. At the time of the program launch, any 501(c)(3) in the state of Virginia is eligible to participate and is required to submit the registration form which will be posted below under “Participation Information.” Once organizations have submitted their application, they will receive a confirmation email of approval within one-five business days and will then be able to solicit donations throughout the program timeline. The 2023 program will close on Sunday, October 22.
