Looking to raise money for your charity?
ARE YOU FUNDRAISING?
Whenever we attend a charity golf day we become a charity fundraiser. A charity golf fundraiser may either be an individual attending an invitational event; or you may be attending a specific charity’s golf day as part of a team. if you do not have your own chosen charity we work with a number of charities which we would be welcome to recommend.
At some point during a charity golf day you will be asked / feel obliged to donate money, no matter how big or small. For example prize draw’s, competitions, raffle tickets, mulligans etc.. This makes you a fundraising golfer.
However, when each of us may run a marathon, do a climbing event, the first thing we do it set up a “just giving” site. We often have a target to reach and we then send a link out to everyone we know.
When you arrange or attend a charity golf day check they have a fundraising page, or set one up yourself as an individual and ask your friends to sponsor you.
If each individual sets up a fundraising page and your day has 18 teams of 4 players, 72 players / fundraisers, raising £100 each, you have just raised £7,200.
FOREIGN CURRENCY & GIFT AID
Many people are unaware , but ALL donations made by your golfers at events overseas qualify for gift aid.
What does this mean for your fundraising?
This means your fundraising for your Charity Golf day may be boosted by another 25% with Gift Aid, which many people do not realise or forget.
It does not matter which country or currency hosts your fundraising golf day. HMRC will still apply gift aid to the currency. (This is however ONLY available to UK Charity Organisations)
HEADS & TAILS
This is a great activity to do just before everyone sits down for their meal. Ask each table to nominate the sexiest person; who is then vetted by the room for approval and becomes that teams fundraising champion. Then ask that person to collect, £5, £10 or £20 from each of their tables. Once this is done you can then play Heads & tails, when someone will win half the pot.
There are many many more ways to raise money for your chosen charity including Silent Auctions and Auctions in general. To find out more call the team on 0844 844 9934 or email us at email@example.com.
