It’s time for Birdies and the Phoenix Open!

Birdies for Charity 2019

What is Birdies for Charity?

The Thunderbirds and Phoenix Open title sponsor Waste Management have an exciting way for Arizona’s charities, including Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts (AAPA), to have fun and support your favorite charity with the birdies made during the competitive rounds of the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Click here to learn more about  Birdies for Charity.

How do I join the fun?

Anyone from anywhere can join in the fun by pledging an amount per BIRDIE that is made during the 5 days of the Phoenix Open using the link below. 100% of your gift goes to The Academy PLUS the Thunderbirds will match your gift with an additional 15%!

The Board of Directors has pledged $6,000 toward our goal of $12,000. Think of it, your gift will be matched by the board of director pledges AND the Thunderbirds will kick in another 15%.

(If 1,500 birdies are made, which is typical, your total pledge would be: $0.01 = $15; $0.02 = $30; $0.03 = $45; $0.04 = $60; $0.05 = $75)

Who gets the money?

No funds will be collected by the AAPA. The Thunderbirds will invoice those who fill out pledge forms following the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. 100% of the collected Birdies for Charity pledges will go directly to the AAPA in support of all our programs. In addition, The Thunderbirds will generously donate an additional 15% of all funds collected for the AAPA.

We are listed under Academy Drum & Bugle Corps in the charity dropdown.
