Why Have a Fundraising Golf Event

Home | Blog | Why Have a Fundraising Golf Event


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?

Players and Sponsors

The key to a successful event is attracting players and selling sponsorships

One of your first important tasks will be building a database of potential players and sponsors

Setting Your Goals

Establish a 3-year plan for your event
