Birdies for Charity - THE PLAYERS Championship 2019

Campaign Image

How does Birdies for Charity work?

• Charitable organizations solicit individuals to make a donation (minimum $20) to their organization via the Birdies for Charity program

• The individual solicited to make a donation is also given the chance to make a guess at how many birdies will be made at THE PLAYERS Championship 2019. A tie-breaker question will also be asked.

• After THE PLAYERS Championship is over, the individual who guesses the exact number of birdies made (or closest thereto) has a chance to win the Grand Prize... $10,000!

• In the event of a tie, a winner will be determined by who most accurately guesses the total number of balls hit into the water at No. 17. If there are multiple winners after the initial tie-breaker, THE PLAYERS will ask additional tie-breaker questions until a grand prize winner is determined.

Bonus Dollars For Participating Charities

THE PLAYERS Championship will provide a $300,000 Birdies for Charity BONUS POOL, offering participating charities the opportunity receive bonus dollars!

2019 Bonus Structure

Organizations will be divided into two tiers - Tier 1 will be organizations with an operating budget of $0 to $1 million. Tier 2 will be those with an operating budget of more than $1M.

Tier 1 Bonus Pool = $150,000
Tier 2 Bonus Pool = $150,000

Bonus dollars will be awarded based upon the percentage of the total amount raised within your tier. So, for example, if your charity generates 2% of the total amount of donations made in within your tier, your organization will receive 2% of the $150,000. There will be no additional "incentive bonuses" in 2019.
