Fundraising ideas

Boost your fundraising on and off the course and have fun at the same time. Take inspiration from our new golf fundraising mini-games and ideas.

Make your team page do the heavy lifting

Make sure you always include the URL to your team's fundraising page when asking for sponsorship from friends and family.

Make work, work

Ask your company to match your donations. Some companies have schemes where they will financially match the fundraising of an employee, up to a certain amount. It's worth enquiring!

Ask your colleagues to donate using the sponsorship form which will arrive in your pack. You can download more forms here. Make sure sponsors donating using your sponsorship form are aware that using Gift Aid means that for every £1 donated, Macmillan can claim back 25% from HMRC, so you raise 25% more.

Aim high

Besides making a massive difference to people with cancer, you could also win a place at the Finals weekend in Portugal, all expenses paid. Track your progress and check out the competition on the View Teams page. Pay all your fundraising in by 13 September 2024. Competition prize terms and conditions apply.

Ask the club

Ask your club to champion your cause. Tell them you're raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, and they may help by reducing or waiving your green fees. Make sure they're happy for you to tee off at dawn and ask if you can play through.

  • Put up a poster in your club
