Donate To Birdies

 Shaw Birdies for Kids, Donate Today

February 1, 2021 – August 15, 2021

Birdies for Kids is a non-profit program run under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. The program is designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the Shaw Charity Classic golf tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved. The program itself acts as a partnership builder between donors and charities, as all money will flow through the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation to Alberta charities.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (the Award) is honored to be an expectant recipient of the proceeds. We will receive 100% OF ALL DONATIONS designated to the Award and up to 50% in extra funding through the matching gift program. Contributions are generated through flat donations or based on the number of “birdies” made by Champions Tour players during the 2021 Shaw Charity Classic.

Please support the Award using the Birdies For Kids program to maximize your donation and your dollars! THANK YOU.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a non-competitive, non-academic, self-directed framework based on experiential learning that recognizes youth for the improvements they make in their communities and themselves. Any young person aged 14-24 can do the Award, regardless of their financial resources. Financial accessibility is addressed by keeping the registration cost lower than the full cost of delivering the program, and waiving the registration fee entirely for participants who cannot afford it. The difference between revenues from registrations and the cost to deliver the program is bridged with government and foundation grants and corporate and individual donations. All donations go toward the general operations and program delivery of the Award division, unless funds are specifically earmarked for a particular program. We will seek to raise $30,000 in donations in 2020. The cost of raising these funds is estimated to be less than 15% of total donations and is calculated as the portion of the Executive Director’s working time that is allocated towards fundraising efforts, plus minimal incidental expenses such as postage and printing costs.
