Utilizing a Video Platform like Gratavid for a Golf Fundraiser Event

Golf outings are in full swing; see what we did there. ;) In all seriousness, though, golf outings take a lot of time and effort to put together but can really impact your organization for years to come. Your participants can feel the excitement and anticipation build as they prepare to "step up to the tee,” but after they've made the pledge to play, what will you do to ensure those donations don't fade away after the event is over?

Here are 4 ways to use video for a tee-rific golf event.

Pre-golf event

Use video to share details about your upcoming golf event. Share the date, time, location, where the funds will be allocated, and last, but certainly not least, let people know how they can sign up and get involved. Our best suggestion is to have a well-known figure within your organization record this video to send out so that people will recognize it when it appears in their inbox. 

You're already one step ahead by sharing your mission and why you are hosting the golf event in this initial send.

Reminder

A few days before the event, send out a reminder video to everyone registered for the event. This way, you stay top of mind, and it helps to create some fun anticipation leading up to a full day of golf.

Day of the event

Leading up to the event, collect powerful testimonials and impact stories that you can share with golfers on the course. Add your impact stories to Gratavid and create a fun branded landing page that connects your organization to your mission. 

**Pro tip: Use Google Chrome’s QR feature to easily add a QR code to a sign at each hole for your players to scan and watch. I mean who doesn’t love a QR code surprise?

Post-golf event

After the event has finished, send out a big thank you to all sponsors and attendees. Our suggestion for this video is to film at the golf course the day of the event, and then you can send it out the next day. With this video, share ways to get the golfers involved with your organization, whether that is through donations, volunteering, or advocacy. Sending out a prompt thank you will ensure that you are still top of mind leading to greater success.

Parting thought

Golf outings allow you to welcome new donors to your organization, and typically players come from invitations from current donors or sponsors to their foursome. Through video stewardship and showcasing your nonprofit, you will have a better chance of converting them from a player to a repeat donor!
