Birdies for Charity Programme Raise $150,000

The continued partnership between Mastercard, the global technology company in the payment industry, and Butterfield during the 2023 Butterfield Bermuda Championship played a key role in helping to boost charitable donations by $150,000.

During the 2023 tournament, Mastercard pledged to match the amount of each purchase made by Butterfield Mastercard debit and credit cardholders at the official Championship merchandise tent dollar for dollar as a donation to Birdies for Charity.

Additionally, attendees had an opportunity to donate $10 or more to access a new Butterfield Mastercard Rest Area, with an incentive to donate $35 or more by receiving a free Tile Tracker device and entry into a gift certificate draw. Mastercard made an additional contribution to reach the total amount as part of their wider commitment to “doing well by doing good”.

"At Mastercard, we understand the importance of thriving communities and are thrilled that our ongoing partnership with Butterfield has enabled us to enrich the charitable impact of the Butterfield Bermuda Championship and have a positive impact on Bermuda’s community. ," said Jimena Elia, Country Manager for Mastercard’s West & Dutch Caribbean Markets. “The Butterfield Bermuda Championship continues to provide an excellent opportunity for us to combine the passion for golf with our commitment to providing cardholders with unique experiences while also supporting the wider community.”

"Our thanks go to the Mastercard team for their support and ideas in helping to encourage donations that benefit local charities. We also extend our thanks to the thousands of attendees, in addition to our valued Butterfield Mastercard clients, who generously donated and purchased official merchandise during the tournament. Together, we have been able to contribute to the well-being of our community and look forward to doing the same this year," said Peter Fawn, Butterfield’s Group Head of Card Services.

The 2023 Butterfield Bermuda Championship, an official PGA TOUR event, took place from November 6-12, 2023, at Port Royal Golf Club.
