About Senior Resources
Senior Resources is a strong voice for the region's elderly citizens. Through our involvement at the federal, state and local level we work to enhance the quality of life for older persons. In addition to advocating legislatively, our continuing work with volunteer and citizen groups increases public awareness of senior issues.
Our mission is to provide access to information and services to empower adults to live with dignity.
2021 Travelers Championship - Birdies for Charity
The Travelers Championship is proud to be a PGA TOUR event that donates 100 percent of net proceeds to charity every year. Since 1952, the tournament has given more than $44 million to the community, and in 2020, the Travelers Championship generated $1.6 million for 115 charities throughout the region. The tournament is committed to supporting our charitable community through Birdies for Charity.
It is a PGA TOUR initiative to build a community of tournaments, players, charities, sponsors, partners, volunteers and fans who are committed to making a social investment by helping others. The majority of the funds raised as a professional sporting league are directed back into the local community where the tournament is held. This means that there isn’t one specific beneficiary of the PGA TOUR. Instead there are nearly 3,000 charities and countless individuals worldwide who are touched by the TOUR’s goal of giving back.
Launched in 2004, Birdies for Charity provides every 501(c)(3) in Connecticut an opportunity to raise awareness for its cause. The program is simply a giving platform that utilizes the excitement around the tournament to help nonprofits across the region raise awareness and funds to support their missions. The Travelers Championship sends 100% of collected donations to participating charities.
Thanks to the support of Webster Bank, each organization that raises money through Birdies for Charity will receive a 15% bonus on top of every donation collected.
