Fundraising Golf Tournaments Can Help Your Charity

Jan 20, 2008
Are you looking to raise some money for a particular cause or charitable foundation? Fundraising golf tournaments are a great way to raise money, but be prepared to put in a lot of hard work to pull it off. Depending on how it is organized, you could bring in anywhere from twenty to one hundred thousand dollars.

Like any large venture, take some time and do your research. Contact the Chamber of Commerce in your city to get some feedback. Do some research and planning by reading up on fundraising golf tournaments on the internet and at your local library.

Make sure you plan your event at a time when there are no other similar events occurring at the same time. You do not want your fundraising golf tournament to compete for the valuable charity dollars with other big charitable events.

There are plenty of tips and advice available for organizing fundraising golf tournaments. One important tip is to get some experienced and knowledgeable golfers involved, especially those that have organized tournaments in the past. Your knowledge may be fundraising and charitable events but you may not have a lot of knowledge about golf, so get some valuable help.

One of the most important first steps is securing a course. If you want to raise a lot of money, then securing a top rated course is essential. You want credibility within the golfing fraternity and this is a good step in the right direction. Sponsors will also take notice of this important aspect of fundraising golf tournaments. If the course is for members only, you will have to contact the leading members to see if your organization can stage the event at their location.

Another important step in planning fundraising golf tournaments is to organize a committee and delegate tasks that need completed. You cannot do everything yourself, that is a recipe for failure. Some of the things the committee can oversee are:

* Locate sponsors
* Secure golfers
* Set rules and make sure they are followed
* Public relations and promotion
* Prizes

As you can see, there is a lot to be considered when organizing fundraising golf tournaments. Another important aspect to remember is getting plenty of volunteers to help on golf day. Everyone that is participating in the planning and organization should be kept up-to-date via email so that everyone knows exactly what task has been completed and the progress of unfinished tasks. It is important to all involved informed. Organize an event of all the people involved so that everyone gets a chance to meet all involved, it will help make for a very fun event both before and during the fundraiser.

Overall, with proper planning and organization, fundraising golf tournaments can raise a lot of money for your organization. As a final thought, do not be afraid to contact someone that has already staged a successful similar event. They could certainly provide plenty of tips and advice along the way to your successful event. Good luck with your fundraiser and we hope your charity makes plenty of money!
