With summer finally rolling in, we find many of our friends and family flocking to their favorite warm weather activities – going to the beach, enjoying a picnic, camping, hiking – and for many, hitting the links to get in a few rounds of golf.
In the same fashion, many organizations are taking advantage of gorgeous summer weather by incorporating it into their fundraising events. This could mean outdoor / beach-themed galas, or something a bit more interactive, like a charitable golf fundraiser.
Popular for corporations and nonprofit organizations alike, golf fundraising tournaments have become a popular way to efficiently raise proceeds, while providing your participants with an interactive summer activity and networking experience. Typically, a golf fundraiser has four revenue drivers:
- Group entry fees into the tournament (usually pairs or foursomes)
- Silent auctions
- General donations
Today, we’re going to focus on how you can drive additional revenue for your golf fundraiser by using silent auctions and general donations.
Specifically, we will tell you exactly how to build a better golf fundraiser by making use of mobile fundraising tools to enhance your silent auction, and increase donations received.
