Junior Golf Online Program
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the Junior Golf Online Program
PGA sections across the country have the opportunity to participate in this unique, crowdfunding program where junior golfers spread the word about their PGA section’s foundation via social media, email and text. Each section’s 501 c(3) non-profit organization will receive proceeds to benefit its foundation.
Q: Who can participate in the Junior Golf Online Program?
Any patron that wishes to help raise funds for their pga section. Money raised goes to help PGA sections fund their programs.
Q: How does it work?
Simply ask supporters through email, text, or social media to make an online donation to your custom fundraiser page (that we build for you). When the junior golfer reaches the goal amount (between $300-$400 depending on the section), he/she will earn a limited-edition Sun Mountain golf bag. This golf bag will be a visual reminder to everyone that your child participated in this program to help others – it’s his/her bag of honor! In addition, a large portion of the proceeds go back to the affiliate PGA section in his/her name.
Q: How many days do I have to reach the goal?
Your fundraiser will be active for 18 days. However, if you find you need a couple of additional days to hit the goal, let us know and we’ll adjust it accordingly.
E-mail or call (844) 534-3168.
Q: How do I get started once I’ve received the link to my custom page?
It’s pretty simple – you ask friends and family to support the cause and share your custom page on social media, email and text. We will be sending you emails throughout your campaign to help coach you along as well.
Q: What information should I share about my fundraiser?
The whole purpose of this fundraiser is to raise awareness for your affiliate PGA section foundation or cause of choice. It is also important to share that you are working towards the goal to earn a Sun Mountain golf bag with your name and PGA section logo on it.
Q: Once the goal is met, when will my junior receive his/her golf bag?
Once your junior hits or exceeds the goal, he/she will receive the limited-edition, Sun Mountain golf bag in approximately 4 weeks from the day his/her fundraiser closes.
Q: What do my donors receive?
As a thank you, all supporters of your page will receive a one-year membership to VIP Bonus Rewards & Travel: an online savings portal where they can save hundreds on hotel rooms across the country.
Q: What happens if my junior does not hit the goal?
If the goal is not met by the deadline, your junior will not receive the Sun Mountain golf bag. However, the proceeds will still go to your affiliate section’s foundation. If your junior is close to reaching his/her goal at the end of the fundraiser, contact us to request a little more time.
Q: Should I be on the lookout for additional emails related to my fundraiser?
Yes, we will communicate with you on a regular basis throughout the 18 days of your fundraiser.
Q: Are donations tax deductible?
Because of how the program administration is structured, donations from supporters are appreciated but not tax deductible.
