CohnReznick Increases Birdies for Charity “Bonus Bucks Program” to $50,000; Serves As Presenting Sponsor for Sixth Year at Travelers Championship


4/2/13

CohnReznick LLP, the 11th largest accounting, tax, and advisory firm in the United States, is pleased to continue as Presenting Sponsor of the Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity and a new Birdies Bonus Bucks program of $50,000.

Birdies for Charity is a pledge-based fundraiser, similar to a walk-a-thon, where Connecticut-based not-for-profit organizations can solicit pledges based upon the number of birdies made during the 2013 Travelers Championship. Instead of $1.00 per mile, with Birdies for Charity, not-for-profit organizations simply ask for a minimum pledge of one cent per birdie or a one-time flat donation.

The 2013 Travelers Championship marks the sixth year that CohnReznick has served as the presenting sponsor of Birdies for Charity. CohnReznick handles the administration for the program which includes tracking pledges, issuing invoices, and collecting payments. One hundred percent of all funds collected are returned to the not-for-profit organization.

In addition, CohnReznick established Birdies “Bonus Bucks,” which previously had been a pool of $15,000. The ten organizations collecting the highest dollar amounts through Birdies for Charity shared in the bonus pool. For 2013, the funds available in the Birdies “Bonus Bucks” pool is now $50,000. Information on the distribution of the funds can be found at http://travelerschampionship.com/core/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/BFC-Bonus-Bucks.pdf.

Frank Longobardi, New England Regional Managing Partner, CohnReznick, stated, “We are proud to continue in our role as presenting sponsor of Birdies for Charity and to increase the “Bonus Bucks” pool to $50,000. CohnReznick recognizes the vital work not-for-profit organizations provide to our community.  Being able to help not-for-profit organizations raise funds through Birdies for Charity is one of the main reasons that CohnReznick became the presenting sponsor five years ago.  We hope the new $50,000 Birdies “Bonus Bucks” pool will encourage other not-for-profits to become involved, and returning organizations to strive to earn more.”

Nathan Grube, Tournament Director of the Travelers Championship, stated, “CohnReznick is an important partner in helping the Travelers Championship to achieve its mission of returning funds raised in association with the tournament to local charities. CohnReznick has once again demonstrated its commitment to the not-for-profit community and we are proud to have them as our partner.”
