2018 Patriot Golf Day - National Campaign Fundraising Tips

1. Have Fun and Make a Difference 

• If you are participating as team, assign a Team Captain to champion your Patriot Golf Day® activity. 

• Post event details on your Facebook, Twitter, Email Blast and in your clubhouse.

• For golf courses, place a tent card at the register to remind your members to support your efforts. 

• Inform golfers that they may donate online at patriotgolfday.com or foldsofhonor.org

• If you can’t participate over Labor Day Weekend during Patriot Golf Day® Awareness week, consider hosting a Patriot Golf Day® event anytime of year that works for you or your facility. 


2. Make Patriot Golf Day® work for you or your facility. Some ideas include 

• Coordinate a Patriot Golf Day® tournament.  Some of our largest and most attended events are golf tournaments courses host throughout the year. 

• Coordinate a golf marathon and ask donor(s) to make a pledge for each hole you play. 

• Run a “Closest To The Hole” contest, or any other contest to encourage participation and increase donations. 

• Hold a silent auction or raffle, with prizes donated. 

• Give free 13-minute lessons on the range and request donations. 

• Give a percentage from every golf lesson as a donation, or have a Folds of Honor special per minute of each golf lesson with proceeds going to Folds of Honor. 

• Have your facility match donations made by your golfers. 

• Ask a sponsor, such as a local business, to match all donations generated. 

• Give range balls for donations. 

• Offer package deals, including golf, range balls and a lesson, with a portion of the package price going towards a donation. 

• Purchase Patriot Golf Day® and Folds of Honor merchandise and accessories in our online store. Proceeds from all merchandise sales will benefit Folds of Honor.  

• Offer incentives on merchandise purchases. For instance, instead of discounts for golfers, direct the savings on purchases towards donations (Ex. $5 donation for every shirt purchase).
