Since 2007, The Principal Charity Classic has distributed over $8 million to local non-profit organizations supporting children in Iowa.

Community spirit is the driving force on the links at The Principal Charity Classic, and Central Iowans have a great opportunity to benefit area children’s programs by raising additional funds through Birdies for Charity. In 2017, Dream Team is a qualified participating organization and will receive 100% of EVERY DONATION collected on our behalf and have the potential of extra money through the “Bonus Bucks” program which is sponsored by Sammons Financial Group.
