Fundraising Case Studies, Golf Tournaments

University of Nevada Charity Golf Tournament

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) is hosting its 3rd Annual Matthew S. Anderson Memorial Golf Tournament & Banquet on Monday, April 8th, 2013. The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Golf Management University program is extremely honored to celebrate Matthew’s life by offering this event benefiting the Matthew S. Anderson Memorial Professional Golf Management Scholarship Endowment – Matthew and his family are pictured here.

UNLV invites participation in their golf tournament, and to consider a donation through a sponsorship level, or item for their online silent auction. Their golf tournament software will manage all aspects of their fundraising event – the golf tournament, silent auction and banquet. This annual event is a success each year, with their website handling registrations, communications and secure online donations for each participant and donor.

Matthew was a beloved student in the PGA Golf Management program at UNLV. As a senior in the program, he was looking forward to graduation and a career as a golf professional, with an emphasis in teaching and youth development. During the summers, as a part of his degree requirements, Matthew completed particularly meaningful internships working at Red Rock Country Club and with young golfers at The First Tee of Southern Nevada. Matthew passed away on May 15, 2010 after a brief illness. The proceeds of this charity golf tournament will provide scholarships to other devoted students of professional golf.

Every year UNLV hosts four fundraising events and each event has a dedicated website. Two charity golf tournaments take place in April and May…the UNLV PGA Family and Friends Tournament and the Matthew S. Anderson Memorial Golf Tournament.  The UNLV PGA Golf Management Golfathon benefits cancer research. Their online charity auction, The UNLV PGA Golf Management Auction, is held in April and the auction items include rounds of Golf, hotel packages, and a dining experience at the UNLV Bistro. The variety of activities, versatile styles of fundraising and heartfelt causes all help in making their fundraising efforts a great success each year. And their state-of-the-art online fundraising software does much of the work for them with each website having the same look and feel.
