3. Charity Golf Tournament Budget. If you’re gonna raise the most amount of ‘cash’ you better be budget focused.
So, we’ve gotten a long way down the path, but there’s alot of stuff to work through.
Let’s look at the charity golf action plan for fundraising. We’ve got our Sponsorship Committee in place so the focus of fundraising has been relieved from the executive director and his/her staff, but, not out of their interest.
What we mean is; how does this event fit into YOUR overall calendar? Hopefully you have 6 months or longer add this event to your Event Marketing Calendar. Of course, the golf tournament is not the only fundraising event you’re conducting for the year, so, you want to ensure you have a focus on how all of the events being conducted during your fundraising year are marketed and promoted just right at each turn of your marketing year.
Let’s say your gala dinner is being conducted in the winter. Incorporate a strategy into the marketing and conduct of the gala to attract sponsors and teams of golfers for the golf event on the lead up to the gala as well as the night of. Present a demonstration table on your golf event with the most glaring incentives for the large sponsors, like; promote heavily the fact that you are conducting a raffle for 2014 Masters Tickets for those sponsors buying-in
As plan every event during the year, consolidate and parse your email lists to ask the questions about whether these organizations or individuals would be candidates for golf event sponsors or teams of golfers.
The appropriate guidance given to the key committee members for your golf event will keep them focused on recruiting sponsors and players. We already identified that The Golf Event Chair does not have to do much work or attend a great deal of meetings, but, continuously reminding him/her of the need to gather prospective sponsor contacts keeps them focused on the event.
In order to make the best effort necessary to raise the most amount of money for your golf event, you must have a well thought out charity golf action plan.
