In 2020, the Sanford International worked in conjunction with the Sanford Health Foundation to create a new fundraising initiative called Birdies Give Back. This program incorporated charitable giving with the performance of the PGA TOUR Champions professionals at the 2020 Sanford International. Those who participated had the opportunity to pledge a one-time amount or a per-birdie amount with one-hundred percent of the money directed to Sanford Children’s Hospital and the Sanford World Clinic. The Birdies Give Back program marries the game of golf and charity in a way that allows all interested spectators and fans to make a difference in the lives of children. With a record 845 birdies made during the three competition rounds in 2020, the Birdies Give Back program raised nearly $100,000 in its inaugural year!
Make a one-time gift or pledge to give back to the Sanford Health Foundation for every birdie scored during the fourth annual Sanford International golf tournament, September 17 to 19.
