Turnkey program administration

A national platform to tell your nonprofit’s story

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.

Participating is Easy!

  • All registered 501(c)(3) organizations registered in the Northeast United States are eligible. There is not a limit on the number of organizations that can participate.


  • Register with the Travelers Championship and we’ll provide the materials and information you need to get started.


  • Solicit donations – ask donors, sponsors, co-workers, friends, and family!


  • Direct your donors to the tournament website, or to your personalized donation website to make a contribution.


  • Submit all donations to the Travelers Championship by Sunday, June 25.


  • In the early Fall of 2023, the Travelers Championship will give you a check for 100% of donations received, plus an additional 15% from our Bonus Bucks pool. It’s that easy!
