A golf fundraiser tournament is an excellent way to generate money for your organization for several reasons.
Golf is a popular sport and tournaments even more so, especially if you use something like a best-ball format that welcomes all golfers, just not the low handicappers.
A lot of them are held during weekdays, and most people would much rather be on the course than in the office.
People also like to play golf fundraiser tournaments because they want to help others.
And, finally, they like to go because tournaments usually have lots of good prizes.
That’s why you need sponsors for your tournament — to provide those good prizes that attract golfers and to help defray expenses for hosting the event. You need to give sponsors a reason to donate. Make sure they know that it’s for a good cause, and tell them what it is.
Mention tax breaks that can be received from charitable donations. Let them know you’ll give them plenty of promotion during the event, and that it’s good marketing. Also, throw some free entries their way. Most companies have golfers who would love to play in an event.
At Tournament Pros, we know that if you keep your sponsors happy, they will keep you happy.
