Chip in for Vesterheim Through Birdies for Charity

You can help make a 105% difference in everything we do each and every day at Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum by participating in this year’s Birdies for Charity® program!

WHAT IS BIRDIES FOR CHARITY?

Birdies for Charity is a special fundraising program connected with the John Deere Classic Golf Tournament on July 8-14. It’s like a walk-a-thon, but instead of donating per mile, you make a pledge for every “birdie” made by professional golfers during the tournament. OR, if you prefer, you can make a flat donation. Every birdie made means bucks for Vesterheim!

WHAT IS A BIRDIE?

In golf, “par” is the normal expected score on any given hole. Every one of the 18 holes on a golf course has its own par assigned to it. A birdie is one stroke under par for a hole, possibly derived from the term “it flew like a bird” to indicate a good shot!

HOW YOU CAN HELP VESTERHEIM

When you “chip in” to Birdies for Charity, 100% of your contribution will benefit the Vesterheim Annual Fund.

As a bonus, the John Deere Classic will make your gift have an even greater impact by adding a guaranteed 5% match! Your gift of $100 will become $105! Your gift of $200 will become $210!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Simply make your online pledge or donation here, or download the pledge form here and return it to Vesterheim Museum, P.O. Box 379, Decorah, IA 52101. Pledges must be submitted by July 12, 2019. After the event you’ll be mailed a notice of your pledge amount due. Be sure to select Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum (Bird # 2235) as your charity.

When you send in your pledge form, you also have the opportunity to participate in the “Guess the Birdies” contest. If you correctly guess the number of birdies made during this year’s tournament, you will be eligible to be included in the grand prize drawing of a two-year lease on a 2019 Lexus NX.

Everything we do, every single day, happens because of the partnership and generosity of friends like YOU!
