Chip In for the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation

Birdies for Charity has begun!  We invite you to “Chip In for your Chance to Win!” 

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 of between 5%-10% for every dollar pledged!  Your donation makes a huge impact on the lives of our patrons, young and old.   With assistance from your Birdies for Charity contributions, Bettendorf Public Library Foundation serves our community and supports services and programs including:

  • The Booker Bear Reading Challenge      
  • The Summer Reading Program
  • The Summer Concert Series
  • The Learning Campus Discovery Fair

This year over $50,000.00 will be awarded in Grant Allocations to the Bettendorf Public Library to support, enhance, and preserve programs and services

In 2017, the John Deere Classic and Birdies for Charity program generated over $12.2 million for 521 participating charities.  The Bettendorf Public Library Foundation received over $20,000 including a generous 10% bonus.

Guess the correct number of Birdies and you could win the Grand Prize of a 2-year lease on a 2018 Lexus or one of many other prizes that will also be awarded!

We could not do these programs without your financial support!  We are extremely grateful to you for your 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!
