Three Ways a Golf Outing Can Benefit Your Organization

golf If your charity or non-profit doesn’t already have an annual golf outing planned, it may be time to reconsider your fundraising strategy. Hosting a golf outing (or partnering with another non-profit or charity) can strongly benefit your organization in more ways than one.

1) High Earning Potential

When done right, a golf outing can be a huge money maker for your charity or non-profit. There are a number of ways you can earn money for your cause, including:
  • Corporate sponsorship fees
  • Individual or golf team fees
  • Underwriting opportunities
  • Merchandise sales
  • Raffles or auctions
  • General donations
  • Dinner tickets for non-golfers

2) Solidify Bonds with Existing Donors

One of the most important opportunities afforded to you during a golf outing is the ability to serve as an incredibly gracious host. You’ll have the chance to spend at least a few quality moments with some of your most important donors. It’s also a great chance to build stronger relationships with individuals who may become bigger contributors in the future. If planned and run correctly, your golf outing will be a day filled with excitement, good will and generosity. You can improve relationships with existing donors and develop new friendships that could lead to future donations.

3) Allows Golfers to Network

The opportunity to network can be an easy selling point when you are trying to recruit golf teams. Golfers will be there to support your organization and benefit from important introductions. Actively helping your attendees make these connections can increase the value of your golfing event, and in the long run, greatly benefit your organization.
