BIRDIES FOR CHARITY is a fundraiser held in conjunction with the John Deere Classic PGA Golf Tournament (July 6-12). Each one-time flat donation or pledge benefits the Sisters of the Living Word plus John Deere will match up to 10%. Pledges/donations are due by July 1.

Special note as of May 28, 2020:  Birdies for Charity will continue but the actual event is being cancelled.  See press release here.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will support the forward-moving partnership we have created with the Wisconsin Religious Collaborative to ensure the ongoing efforts of our own ministries as well as our ongoing advocacy in several areas of social justice – homelessness, immigration, anti-human trafficking and care of creation.  We will also be giving special attention to those living in poverty who are being greatly affected by Covid-19.
