Official Announcement Newsletter of the Salem Angels Golfathon Sunday, August 21, 4-7 PM @ Topgolf (Hillsboro)
The second annual Salem Angels 'FORE! Foster Families' Golfathon fundraiser – WILL YOU JOIN US?
Last year, 28 volunteer Participants - golfers and non-golfers - raised over $59,000 for Salem Angels (SA) mission to walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. This year we're hoping for a team of 32 or more to help us raise $75,000 to continue supporting Salem Angels’ life changing mission. It's super fun and easier than you think.
This annual Peer-to-Peer fundraiser has a proven track record, having raised millions of dollars in Oregon, to benefit the charitable work of Salem Angels and other ProFund clients. When you commit to self-sponsoring for at least $100, and then ask 25 to 35 friends to match that amount or do whatever they can, you can easily raise the individual pledge goal of $2500 ($1000 option for Rookies). In fact, many of our volunteers raised a lot more than that (with the ‘secret-strategy” of self-sponsoring for more)! We also learned that this type of fundraising is not as hard as you might think.
We’ve created easy-to-use online tools for this campaign and we'll handle all the communication and financial details for you. All we need you to do is reach out to people you know (email, text, etc.), ask them to sponsor you and log their pledge. If you use our “tips” & “tools” about 80% will pledge. That’s the secret-sauce: People love to help people that are helping people.
Don't golf? Or can't be there on August 21st? No problem! Topgolf is perfect for non-golfers to have a great time. Watch the video HERE to see for yourself. If you're busy on the day of the event, or have a physical limitation, you could still help raise funds and we can have someone else take your place for golfing.
