Annual Appeal Launch

The Christ Child Society DC Chapter is kicking off our Annual Appeal with our Birdies Fore Love Giving Campaign. Thanks to RSM, during this week-long giving campaign, we will receive a 25% match for any donations made through the Birdies Fore Love link through October 15th. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to maximize your gift and help raise funds for our programs!


This year, the RSM DC office has chosen to support our DC Chapter of the Christ Child Society. Every donation made to CCS through the BFL platform will go towards our 2019-2020 Annual Appeal and will be eligible for a 25% match from the RSM US Foundation. Thanks to Teresa Carlin Dunne (Posey member) and her associates at RSM for sponsoring this exciting match!

What is Birdies Fore Love?

Birdies Fore Love (BFL) is RSM’s charitable giving platform for The RSM Classic. Each year, RSM offices commit to raising funds for local charitable organizations aligned with the missions of the RSM US Foundation. Since 2010, the RSM Classic has raised more than $13 million for charities that support education and organizations that support children and families in the areas of hunger, housing and health.


Each RSM office selects a local charity to benefit from its 2019 Birdies Fore Love Program. The charities receive the funds raised through the program by RSM employees, family and friends plus a potential match from the RSM US Foundation.


For more information about Birdies Fore Love, visit rsmus.com/birdiesforelove.


Here’s how it works

Simply go to rsmus.com/birdiesforelove to set up an account and complete your donation online. Your donation is applied to the charity you select and your donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution. You also have the option to enter the “Guess the Birdies” contest for a chance to win the grand prize, a trip for two to Sea Island, Georgia. One grand prize will be awarded to the individual who guesses the correct number of birdies during competitive rounds, Thursday through Sunday, of The RSM Classic. If no one guesses the correct number of birdies, the grand prize will be awarded to the individual who is closest without going over.


Charity Happy Hour

We'll wrap up the giving campaign on September 25th with a charity happy hour at Tommy Joes in Bethesda. Enjoy happy hour prices from 5pm-9pm by either donating a minimum of $20 to CCS through the Birdies Fore Love platform or purchasing a $20 wristband at the door.

All ticket proceeds and a portion of the night's bar sales will go towards the Christ Child Society's mission of helping children in need in the DC area.
