Who are the kids?
Our “Birdies” are girls and boys between the ages of 10 and 18 years old. They are from underrepresented or underserved communities in the DMV Metro Area.
Where will the “Birdies” come from?
CitySwing has relationships with multiple youth organizations in the DMV Metro Area. These organizations work with kids from underrepresented and underserved communities, and they will help us identify kids that will benefit from and value the experience. Please call (202) 902-0983 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our partner organizations.
Is this gift tax deductible?
No. Backing Birdies is not tax deductible. However, we promise that your contribution to Backing Birdies will ONLY be used to support boys and girls from underrepresented or underserved communities.
Can I sponsor the same kid more than once?
No. You cannot request to sponsor specific children through Backing Birdies because this program is designed to give as many kids as possible exposure to the game of golf. We need the flexibility to give new kids the opportunity to participate. You can, however, always purchase a regular CitySwing gift card and we’ll help get it to the child of your choice.
Why should I do this?
If you agree with our vision that more kids in underserved and underrepresented communities should have the opportunity to play golf, then this is a great way to make it possible.
What does CitySwing do with the proceeds?
All proceeds from Backing Birdies are reinvested into the company. CitySwing believes in Corporate Social Responsibility to create a positive social impact. So as the company grows, we will consistently create more programs to invite more people from underrepresented and underserved communities.
