The World's Largest Golf Outing™ (WLGO) is more than just a great day of golf; it’s about making a difference. 100% of your donation will be donated to charity.
We strongly encourage that all donations be made through the WLGO website to ensure a quick receipt and to allow donations to be made to specific teams. You will receive a letter of acknowledgement from Fisher House Foundation regarding your donation through the World's Largest Golf Outing before the end of the year for tax purposes.
Below are some helpful tips to get you out there fundraising:
Create a list of potential donors. Reach out to them by phone, email or social media. Direct them to Hot Button donation links, the WLGO donation page or the Fisher House Foundation website and let them know that any amount donated will make a difference.
POWER OF 10
The Power of 10 is a thought that if you know 10 people and they know 10 more people then we can do insurmountable good together if each person gave just $10.
GET THE FAMILY & FRIENDS INVOLVED
Get your friends and family involved. Hold a neighborhood yard sale. Set up a lemonade stand. Run a car wash! Have all the proceeds go to WLGO. It helps everyone get involved and understand the value of giving back.
Our Highest Fundraising Team told us their secret is asking for donations every day. The worst they can say is "no" and then you move on to the next potential donor. Don't be scared to ask!
Tell your friends and family that you will match the first five donations received. Donors typically give or give more if they know that an additional donation will be made because of them.
SEND WEEKLY UPDATES
Keep everyone in the loop and let them know how you are doing towards your fundraising goal. The more they are aware the greater chance they might want to donate.
Let everyone know why you are doing this! Also encourage those looking to donate to provide a message of who they want to honor as well.
Consider looking to your company and seeing if they will match donations. We can then work with the Fisher House Foundation to see about being able to give your team credit.
