Father’s Day Fundraising Events

Father’s Day is a wonderful time to honor dads and raise money in support of fathers. Families work side by side on this special day in crowdfunding events, golf marathons, and walkathons. Here are some of our favorite client sites in action this Father’s Day.

Father’s Day Fundraising Bowl-a-thons

Bowling For Dads on Father’s Day is a national peer-to-peer fundraising event supporting the Fatherhood Support Network taking place at Bowling Centers nationwide. Their goal is to create an annual tradition of honoring, celebrating, and having fun on Father’s Day with dads who are actively involved in their children’s lives while raising funds for the Fatherhood Support Network. The fundraising proceeds help support the Fatherhood Support Network’s training of fatherhood mentors in one-on-one mentorship activities.

The Fatherhood Support Network’s crowdfunding website for bowl-a-thon events allows individuals and teams to collect donations and pledges for the cause. The campaign fundraising team has easily configured each fundraising website to meet their specific needs, and each bowler has enjoyed personalizing their web pages. Nothing is too good for fathers, and the efforts of each volunteer are for them.

The Fatherhood Support Network bowl-a-thon, which bowlers commit to raising donations to participate in their organization’s crowdfunding event. They simply register on the crowdfunding website, build their personal page, and then contact friends, colleagues, and family members to solicit donations for The Fatherhood Support Network. The website includes personal fundraising pages for each bowler with a personalized link. Motivated bowlers can raise thousands of dollars for this cause through their social network for fathers. And it’s all happening on Father’s Day!

The Fatherhood Support Network bowl-a-thon website manages the complete online registration and management system for their Father’s Day bowl-a-thon. Bowlers collect and track pledges and donations for this important cause. Their responsive website performs well on all devices, which is especially important with this type of peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. The fundraiser allows The Fatherhood Support Network to multiply their fundraising resources and raise money, as each participant taps into their group of constituents to raise funds during the Father’s Day crowdfunding event.

Go Plaid for Dad Golf Tournament

Plaid for Dad

Another fabulous fundraiser is on Father’s Day. This incredible fundraising campaign asks if you’ll Go Plaid for Dad.

Plaid for Dad is a golf tournament fundraising event launched in 2015 to help raise awareness and vital research funds for prostate cancer. It has quickly become a fun and easy way for Canadians to celebrate dad and help the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

This year, they expect over 1,000 workplaces and thousands of individuals across Canada to Go Plaid through donations, fundraising, and events. The Friday before Father’s Day is officially designated as the day to wear Plaid for Dad. Participants will share photos across social media platforms using the hashtag #PlaidforDad to show their support and help spread the word.

Their golf tournament website easily directs golfers to the Plaid for Dad tournament, where they can register for the event, join teams, and purchase mulligans. Golfers receive automatic e-mail confirmations and are added to their nonprofit reporting database. Reports print or download to Excel for tournament check-in and financial tracking.

Plaid for Dad donors easily supports this cause by making secure online donations. Donations are securely processed via debit or credit cards and donors in support of Prostate Canada can commit online and still mail checks if they prefer.
