There are three primary reasons to have a fundraising golf event:
• To raise money
• To reinforce relationships with existing supporters, staff and volunteers
• To introduce your organization to new potential supporters
• Before You Start
Important considerations as you organize a fundraising golf event:
– Have you allowed enough time to plan and execute the event?
– Can you identify potential committee members, staff and volunteers to support your event?
– Do you have funds available for marketing, golf course deposits and other pre-event services?
