The success of this type of fundraiser depends on your player turnout, so you need to advertise as much as possible to make as many people as possible aware of the tournament.
Also, you need to get each player to collect pledges or corporate sponsorship - this is where the success of your fundraising event actually lies. Offering great prizes to the players is also a way of drawing more golfers to your tournament, such as longest drive, closest to the hole, hole in one, lowest team score, lowest actual score, as well as best adjusted score (handicap). Local merchants can be approached to sponsor those prizes. It would be a good idea to work with an insurance-related prize company for things like the hole in one.
Need other fundraising events ideas?
There are so many special days through the year that can be used as fundraisers. Some great moneymakers are Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Shrove Tuesday, Shakespeare's Birthday, Boxing Day - in fact, there is probably something happening on every day of the year that you can use as a fundraising events idea.
Other fun fundraising events are rainbow festival, scarecrow festival, teddy bears picnic, and, as there are so many dog lovers out there, hosting a dog show is sure to be a real success. Also, if your school, church, or local hospice is named after a saint, then make use of these and have a fundraiser named after that particular saint day.
Other fundraising events ideas that will help you to get going include using local radio stations, your community paper, school and church newsletters, local TV, posters and flyers, etc, to advertise your fundraising event as much as possible.
The location of your event is also very important. It should be a place that is well known by everyone, and it should be able to handle all the requirements of your event as well as large crowds. Picking the right day for your event is crucial, too. Saturdays are usually the best, as most people are not working on that day, and have fewer religious or family events to attend.
Make sure that you get total commitment from your fundraising volunteers. Your fundraiser will not be very successful if you cannot rely on your helpers. Also make sure to have extra volunteers at the ready, in case some of your volunteers are absent.
Some top fundraising events ideas include breakfast / lunch / dinner fundraising events, car washes, recycled bottle / can drives, bake sales, book sales, garage / lawn sales, rubber duck races, auctions, and Bingo nights.
Of course, these are only a very few of the numerous fundraising events ideas available - there are many, many more possibilities available. With dedication and proper planning, your fundraising event cannot help but be the success that you want it to be.
