If your non-profit group needs a way to get a significant amount of money in all at once, one of the most efficient ways to do that is with a one or two-day event.
Sports events are particularly popular these days, and if you are hosting your event in the spring or summer, you can do something a little unusual by making it a golf fundraising event. The great thing about golf is that it tends to attract a lot of money, and this can translate into fantastic earnings for your group.
If you want to maximize your income, though, you need to play it smart with your golf fundraiser event. Getting in a few players of note, or even a couple of local celebrities is a great idea to attract attention. Combine this with a killer advertising campaign, and you’ll have set yourself for an event that will be very popular.
Most golf courses will give you a tremendous discount on fees if you have a large group. Local businesses are your key to bringing the big bucks in for your golf fundraising event. Corporate sponsorship is probably going to be your largest source of income, so you’ll want to offer businesses something that is really of great value to them. They’ll want significant advertising rights, of course, and if you can put together an attractive corporate sponsorship package at a reasonable price, you’ll find that the response will be very good, especially if the executives can get in on the game.
The players themselves can also be a great resource for your golf fundraising event. The more well-known personalities will not have any trouble getting sponsorship, but even just average local players can raise at least $100 each.
There are a lot of ways to boost your golf fundraising event, so make sure that you’re taking advantage of every angle you can.
