Kids On Track has been selected by the Shaw Charity Classic Birdies For Kids (BFK) presented by AltaLink,
as one of 90 Alberta charities to participate in the Birdies For Kids fundraising opportunity!
What is Birdies For Kids?
Birdies for kids is a fundraising program designed to give charities an opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of "birdies" made by Champions Tour players during the Shaw Charity Classic. Participating charities will receive 100% of every donation collected on their behalf and, through their matching program, will receive extra funding of up to 50% of collected donations. CLICK HERE for additional tournament information.
In golf, a "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for any golf hole on the course. "Par" is the expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. We estimate 875 birdies will be made during the Shaw Charity Classic.
What Does This Mean for Kids On Track?
For every dollar raised we will receive up to a 50% match in addition to your donation! If we meet our target of raising $20,000, we will receive $30,000! Wow! Where else could you get a 50% return on your investment in a few weeks?
Where Will My Donation Go?
Last year we were able to raise enough to buy a new shuttle bus - what an amazing asset to our programs! This year all monies raised will go to support our Active Families and Youth Programs.
When you choose Kids On Track as your charity of choice, 100% of all funds donated through the Foundation will go directly to us. All administrative costs and efforts for the program including website administration, credit card fees, promotional materials, invoicing, etc. will be covered by the Shaw Charity Classic Tournament.
