Besides watching some of the best golfers compete in our province, our real drive is helping the kids who call Alberta home. Thanks to your support, we have raised over $61 million dollars for over 200 children and youth charities across Alberta.
Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink is a non-profit program under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. This program is designed to help raise new funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved.
- You can donate online or by cheque between February 1 and August 15
- Donations can be made to the Shaw Charity Classic Foundation matching pool or directly to a participating charity
- Donations directed to a participating charity are matched up to 50% using the Foundation matching pool
- All administrative costs are covered by the tournament, meaning 100% of all donations will go directly to the charity selected.
