Jewish Family Service invites you to support us through Birdies for Charity, an exciting fundraising program linked to the Valero Texas Open, the third oldest tournament on the PGA TOUR schedule.

How Jewish Family Service will benefit…
We will receive 100% of every penny we raise through Birdies for Charity. Valero Texas Open and Birdies for Charity pays all costs to run the program. Depending on how well we do, we can even earn additional Bonus Money provided by the Valero Texas Open.

How Birdies for Charity works…
You can make a minimum pledge of one penny or more per birdie. The value of your pledge is based on the number of birdies made during the Valero Texas Open. You can also make a flat contribution; with $20 being the suggested minimum. Your company can also contribute using the same method. Any individual or corporation that donates $1,000+ or pledges $.50+ per birdie becomes a member of a special Birdies Club and gets FOUR general admission tickets to the tournament and recognized on a sponsor sign displayed in the Gatorade Fan Fest during tournament week.

So please support Jewish Family Service and Birdies for Charity by making an online pledge and selecting Jewish Family Service as your charity. After the tournament, Valero Texas Open will bill you for the amount of your commitment.

107% Return on Your Donation

JFS receives 100% of every penny raised.
And if we reach $1,000, Valero Texas Open will match that by 7%!
