Supporting National Philanthropy Day
It’s National Philanthropy Day, and we’re gearing up for one of our biggest philanthropic events of the year: The RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR event held at Sea Island, GA each November. It’s a fabulous tournament in a beautiful setting, but it’s also so much more than golf.
The RSM Classic is a unique client experience that not only allows us to engage with our clients and friends at a stunning venue that offers skeet shooting, bicycling opportunities, pool and beach access and other amenities, but also provides us with a unique opportunity to give back to the communities where our 11,000+ people live and work across the country. Through the tournament’s Birdies Fore Love program, we were able to raise more than $3.5 million during the 2018 tournament alone, bringing the grand total raised for children- and family-focused nonprofits through the tournament since it began in 2010 to more than $13 million. And we’re looking forward to doing even more this year!
These donations are making a difference. Check out what the Genesis Women’s Shelter had to say about the impact Birdies Fore Love has had on their organization and on their clients here. INK! shared their story about how Birdies Fore Love has made a difference for them here. And you can find even more stories here.
So as we tee things up for the annual giving opportunity that The RSM Classic provides, in honor of National Philanthropy Day, we’d like to thank those of you who support your communities, and encourage those of you who might be looking for an opportunity to give back to consider Birdies Fore Love. It’s a great way to support your community.
