About the Birdies
During the winner's luncheon, which took place earlier this week, the Regions Tradition announced that the tournament's Birdies for Charity program has raised $967,435 for local charities in 2021. Coupled with $100,000 in matching funds contributed by Regions and Magna Kamtek, the cumulative total for this year's program is $1,067,435. The major championship, which is held at Greystone Golf & Country Club, recruited 49 charities throughout the Birmingham community.
The primary goal of the Regions Tradition Birdies for Charity program is for participating 501(c)(3) organizations to collect donations of at least $20 or pledges of at least $.05 based on the number of birdies made by the PGA TOUR Champions players during the Regions Tradition tournament. Organizations keep 100% of their collected donations, and administrative and promotional costs for the program are covered entirely by the Regions Tradition.
After a charity reaches $1,000 in donations, Birdies for Charity guarantees five percent for every dollar raised up to $100,000. The final percentage is determined at the close of the program and is dependent on the amount available in the Matching Funds pool. Eligible participating charities received a 11.73% match for 2021. The top five fundraising charities receive a higher percentage than the guaranteed percentage.
