Share the Love.


Now in its fourth year, RSM’s Birdies Fore Love program is a giving platform tied to The RSM Classic. Each year, RSM makes a difference for at-risk youth through Birdies Fore Love, thanks to stellar participation from its partners, principals and employees, gifts from clients and friends, and a generous match provided by the RSM US Foundation.

The RSM US Foundation will be providing a match of up to $500,000 for funds raised by Birdies Fore Love for this year's tournament, provided RSM meets its regional fundraising, partner participation and employee participation goals. These funds will be distributed among Birdies Fore Love charities.

Through Birdies Fore Love, RSM offices commit to raising funds for local charities aligned with the missions of the RSM US Foundation and Davis Love Foundation. In 2016, the program raised almost $1.5 million for 72 charities nationwide where RSM’s employees live and work. The strong fundraising through Birdies Fore Love, coupled with proceeds from the tournament, brought the 2016 total donation to more than $2 million, and the program total to more than $7 million.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply make your donation using this form or online. Your donation is applied to the charity you select, and your donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution. You also have the option of entering the “Guess the Birdies” contest for a chance to win the grand prize, which will be awarded to the individual who guesses the correct number of birdies during competitive rounds, Thurs., Nov. 16 – Sun., Nov. 19 of The RSM Classic. If no one guesses the correct number of birdies, the grand prize will be awarded to the individual who is closest without going over. Additional contest rules: Ties will be decided by a random drawing. All entries must be received on the official donation form or online by Fri., Oct. 13, 2017. Only one birdie guess per contestant is allowed. Participants must be 18 years of age or older to participate. No donation is required to participate in the “Guess the Birdies” contest.  For complete rules and regulations, visit here.

If you’d like to help at-risk youth in the areas of education, hunger, housing or health, please consider donating to Birdies Fore Love (Donation Form or Donate Online).
