Corporate and community sponsors fulfill a critical role in any successful golf tournament fundraiser. These corporations and local businesses help increase awareness for an event by promoting it to their employees and customers via social media, which is helpful when it is time to attract the attention of local media and recruit golfers. Most importantly, sponsors create a financial backbone by helping to offset tournament costs which are generally quite high. Read on for our proven guidelines on how to attract golf tournament sponsors for your tournament.
A Golf Marathon (or golf-a-thon) is a peer-to-peer fundraising event where individual golfers raise money for your charitable cause by collecting donations and pledges. It’s a fun way to engage participants as each golfer creates a personal fundraising page where they can upload photos and videos, a mission statement and set fundraising goals. Fundraising pages are shared via email and social media and the result is that your organization raises more money and finds new supporters.
A golf charity auction is a great way to raise more funds as part of a charity golf tournament. A golf auction gives non-golfers and others in your community an opportunity to donate to your cause through bidding on auction items online, at your event, or both. We provide details here on how to organize a charity auction.
We provide one of a kind travel packages that can be used in live, silent and online charity auctions and raffles. Here’s how the program works: Your organization can advertise these packages on your fundraising website and auction them at your event without paying any money up front. Once you have successfully sold the item for an amount above your cost or designated reserve amount, you buy it. We then send the package tickets and contents directly to your winning bidder and provide support through our travel concierge.

Advertising is key to any successful golf tournament.

With a little customizing, we hope these flyers offer a great opportunity to boost event visibility.
