Fundraising Tips

So, where do I start?

Put a plan in place, and work toward it.  Tell your friends and family and those around you that you are taking on this challenge and they WILL help you achieve your goal - don't be afraid to ask.

Even if someone cannot help you with a financial contribution, can they help you spread the word about your involvement?  Social media, putting up posters or flyers, putting a link on their website any share of information can only add to awareness and potential donations.

There are so many ways you can achieve your fundraising target by breaking it down, getting creative and having fun.  Some ideas are below but you are only limited by your own imagination.

The easiest way for people to donate is to simply go to the Support a Player in the HHH page and make a donation in your name. 

After that, there are so many other ways.  Here's a few that make it interesting and challenging. 

Golf, golf and a bit more golf  put your training to good use.  Perhaps arrange a mini event with some other club mates and use the practice rounds to kick start your fundraising.  Set up an intraclub challenge to see which player, or which team, can raise the most on the day to go towards your donation total.

Bonuses and incentives to you can help bump up your total and motivate you to achieve personal milestones on the golf course throughout the Hike.

  • Ask people to sponsor you $1 per hole.  Make it interesting with a combination of $2, $1 & $0.50 per hole?
  • Break your handicap - another $20 per round under net 72.
  • Additional $5 per birdie or $2 per par - perhaps $20 for an Eagle or $100 for a Hole in One!
  • Perhaps a fixed $100 to play more than 100 holes.
  • $1 per hole, and then $2 for every hole past 100.
  • Can you ask a business to donate something that we can auction or raffle?
  • Can you ask a business to sponsor you? They can do training updates on their social media, we can support them on our social media and through our associated Music to a Tee event.
  • Ask your morning coffee place to put a tin cup next to the tips jar for you for the day/week/month.
  • $10 per hole from a business (es) - $1000.
  • $1 per hole from 20 people - $2000.
  • $1000 worth of bonuses from friends and family for achieving birdies, pars, eagles, break handicap rounds, etc - $1000.
  • Earn an extra $100 for playing the last hole with a putter or with a vintage club.
  • If you have your own business - actively promote this event and your involvement in the Hundred Hole Hike. 

Are you on social media? 

Spread the word - over and over again. Like the Hundred Hole Hike Australia Facebook page and the  Karingal Facebook page You can also join the Karingal Hundred Hole Hike event page for all the latest news.  Ask your FB, Insta, Snapchat Friends to share, share, share. Post regular updates on your training and donations. Share your progress as you reach new levels of funds raised. 

Ultimately, all this effort and work will help someone living with an ABI and also help you to complete this huge undertaking.  Although every part of you will hurt at the end of the day, it is truly worthwhile and we know that you will find your Hundred Hole Hike an unforgettable experience.

Good luck and thank you again for supporting the 2017 Hundred Hole Hike.
