2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic Birdies for Charity

The Rocket Mortgage Classic will once again offer the Birdies for Charity program in 2022, allowing all verified non-profit organizations to use Detroit’s PGA TOUR event as a vehicle for fundraising.

Through the program, all registered, 501(c)(3) organizations that apply can collect flat-rate donations, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the participating organizations. With no administrative fees or heavy lifting, this turnkey program is a unique and proven way to raise significant funding for nonprofits. Since 2019, more than 266 nonprofit organizations have raised thousands of dollars to help support their missions.

Serving as a launchpad for long-term positive impact, the Rocket Mortgage Classic Birdies for Charity Program is designed to help increase the amount of positive change generated by the PGA TOUR held within the City of Detroit.

The fourth annual Rocket Mortgage Classic is scheduled for July 28-31 at Detroit Golf Club. Since 2019, the Rocket Mortgage Classic has invested more than $5.25 million into nonprofit organizations, including $3.2 million through the Changing the Course initiative first launched in 2020. More information is available at RocketMortgageClassic.com.

For the first time in program history, we are excited to offer a bonus to donations made through the Rocket Mortgage Classic Birdies for Charity program! Dow, in its commitment to imagine a better future, is our first ever Giving Bonus Sponsor and will add a 20% bonus to every donation made. Thanks to Dow, your donation goes further through Birdies for Charity!
