Birdies for Charities

Birdies for Charity is a fundraising program designed to give participating non-profit organizations the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to the participating organization. Funds are generated by soliciting pledges from individuals and corporations.

Birdies for Charity are similar to a walk-a-thon, but rather than donating per mile, participants make a pledge for every birdie made at the Valero Texas Open. The 2013 Valero Texas Open had 1,640 birdies made, so a pledge of $0.01 yielded a donation of $16.40.

Donors also have the ability to make a one-time donation and flexibility to pay in advance or be billed after the tournament. Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible.

We invite you to support CASA through Birdies for Charity. Your donation not only supports CASA but also The Valero Texas Open and all of the charitable giving they have made throughout the years.

Big Give SA

The Big Give SA is a 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 6, 2014.

The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to:  increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community’s social challenges; bring nonprofits and donors together; expand the idea of online giving; connect people to the causes that move them the most; and, of course, make giving FUN. By turning giving into a shared city-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of San Antonio and collectively move our city forward. 

CASA will be participating in this day of giving on May 6, 2014, so stay tuned for updates and alerts to learn more about how you can help us!
