GolfStatus.org, the social impact division of golf technology company GolfStatus and the leading golf tournament management solution for fundraisers and nonprofit organizations, has launched an ask-us-anything-style content series offering ideas, insights, and practical tips for fundraisers planning charity golf tournaments as part of its partnership with the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the largest community of fundraising professionals in the world.
The Q&A series is part of a larger effort to provide useful and timely information to fundraising professionals who are leveraging golf events to fundraise or working with partners and businesses who plan one or multiple charity tournaments on their behalf.
"Golf presents tremendous opportunities for nonprofits and charities," says Katie Casillas, director of marketing and communications at GolfStatus. "We're excited to field questions from frontline fundraisers about golf fundraising and share our expertise and experience working with golf events of all types and sizes."
AFP members, nonprofit organizations, and charity golf event organizers are invited to read the latest posts and submit questions for GolfStatus's golf fundraising experts at www.golfstatus.org/afp-asks. "Our goal is to provide the fundraising community with the tools they need to help their organizations reach their goals and provide critically needed services to the community," said AFP President and CEO Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA. "GolfStatus.org has such an extraordinary library of knowledge and resources about golf fundraising, including events and technology, that will help members maximize their golf fundraising activities. I encourage all members to take advantage of this partnership and GolfStatus.org's expertise and ask any question they have about planning, coordinating, and holding a golf event." GolfStatus.org and AFP began their collaboration in 2020 with the common goal of empowering fundraisers to tap into golf's vast giving power. Through the partnership, GolfStatus.org makes its golf fundraising and event management technology accessible to AFP's 26,000 members and the organizations they serve at no cost, plus free educational materials, downloadable guides, templates, and other resources.
