Chip in for Charity: Birdies for Charity is back!

Your donation to the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation can have a huge impact on Library programs and services. 100% of your pledge to BIRD # 590 goes directly to the programs sponsored by the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation. PLUS we receive a “bonus” check between 5% - 10% for every dollar pledged! Your donation makes a huge impact on the lives of our patrons, young and old. With your Birdies for Charity contributions, the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation is able to fund The Summer Reading Program, The Summer Concert Series, The Learning Campus Discovery Fair, and Global Gathering.

This year, the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation will award over $55,000 in grant allocations to the Bettendorf Public Library to support, enhance, and preserve programs and services.

In 2018, the John Deere Classic and Birdies for Charity program generated over $13.4 million for 534 participating charities. The Bettendorf Public Library received over $21,000.

Not only do you have a chance to match your donation up to 10%, but you also get a chance to win a lease on a brand new car. Guess the correct number of Birdies and you could win the Grand Prize of a two-year lease on a 2019 Lexus or one of the many other prizes to be awarded!

We could not sponsor these programs without your financial support! We are extremely grateful to you for your generous donations.

We invite you to partner with us at the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation by filling out the pledge card to Bird #590 and returning it to the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation office.

Thank you for your continued support!
