Charity Golf Tech (CGT)
Our team at CGT is thrilled to be able to combine our enthusiasm and experience in golf with our custom development, technology and marketing expertise into a service that is helping charities maximize their fundraising potential.
Golf has a long tradition as the preferred vehicle to raise funds for charity. It has been proven that golf generates more money for charity than all other sports activities and most other activities in general.
However, the traditional charity golf outing is highly labor intensive and, often, is not financially efficient after you consider the costs (greens fees, food & beverage, etc.). Ultimately, unless your charity has a relationship with a golf club and is fortunate to have the golf club donated, only a small percentage of the gross receipts actually go to the charity.
That’s where Charity Golf Tech comes in with options for your charitable event:
- Using our custom technology, social media expertise, peer-to-peer fundraising and customer support we created a Turnkey program that reduces your effort and exponentially increases the return for your charity.
CGT has proven to help our charity clients run regional or national programs and accomplish major fundraising feats with very small staffs. And Charity Golf Tech fees are 100% performance based.
It is important to note that the passion and dedication our charity organizers have for their cause is what accounts for the charity’s success. CGT makes it easier and far more productive for your charity.
