How to: Fundraise for a charity golf tournament

Holding a charity golf tournament is a popular fundraising option in spring and summer. Although this can be an expensive fundraising route to take logistically, nonprofits heavily rely on the support of volunteers and sponsors to make these events possible. Charity golf tournaments are often targeted towards affluent supporters, although that is not always the case. Regardless, the social environment of these events offers great networking opportunities for people of similar interests, while doing something (playing golf) that they all enjoy.

While a charity golf tournament is logistically difficult, and can be a huge project for a nonprofit, Rallybound’s fundraising platform makes setting up online fundraising and ticket sales easy. Here are two ways that nonprofits can use our platform to begin fundraising for their next golf event. 

Ticket Builder

Creating a golf tournament (or similar event) page can be done easily through the Rallybound platform using the Ticket Builder feature.

Ticket Builder is an easy-to-use tool where various types of tickets and sponsorships can be created. All changes are synced on the front-end of the page as soon as they are made by the nonprofit admin. For each ticket, a description, expiration date, price, and available quantity can be viewed. Tickets can easily be reordered with a drag and drop option to customize the list view.

 

 

Ticket editing allows users to set price, quantity, expiration dates and to also create a custom field of their choice, e.g. a textbox, dropdown, etc.

 

 

The customized fields also give the options to collect any guest information needed for the event, including meal preferences and T-shirt sizes.

 

 

Here are a few examples of unique sponsorship levels and table purchase options that can be created in Ticket Builder.

Peer-to-peer Fundraising Campaign

Another option to fundraise around a charity golf tournament would be create a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. 

 

 

While often associated with run/walk/ride events, peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising can apply to almost any type of activity. With P2P fundraising, individuals can fundraise for the tournament and get the word out, and a nonprofit can even offer the option of fundraising with or without purchasing a ticket to the tournament. Supporters can choose their own fundraising goal and the nonprofit can possibly add incentives (such as a “free” ticket to the tournament once a certain threshold is reached) to motivate fundraisers. 

Here’s a live example of one of a P2P fundraising campaign being applied to a charity golf tournament.

So, get golfing and get fundraising!
