The Inspiring Equine Society, has been selected as a participating charity in Shaw Birdies for Kids, presented by AltaLink!

Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink

Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink is a non-profit program run under the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation. This program was introduced to the 2015 tournament and is a program designed to help raise funds for local charities, engage the community in the tournament, and provide matching funds for each charity involved. The program itself acts as a partnership builder between donors and charities, as all money will flow through the Calgary Shaw Charity Classic Foundation towards Alberta charities. All administrative costs and efforts for the program are covered by the Shaw Charity Classic tournament meaning that charities have no costs associated with the program and 100% of all donated funds through the Foundation will go directly towards the charity selected. On top of your donation, the most exciting part of BFK is the matching pool. For your generous contribution, up to 50% will be matched and the funds will go directly to your chosen charity.

The 2020 Birdies for Kids program will begin February 1, 2020. To donate please visit
