We are delighted to be holding our 11th ANNUAL GOLF MARATHON at TopGolf in Hillsboro, and will be committed to observing all the necessary protocols to keep everyone safe in the process! WILL YOU JOIN US?
This annual fundraiser is the source of about half of our annual operating budget, and has raised over $714,000 to benefit the charitable work of Catalyst in the past 10-years! This has been nothing short of amazing, and has changed the lives of hundreds of neighbors in need....plus, it's a lot of fun!
This may sound crazy, and you may think we’re nuts, but WE NEED YOU to smash 100 golf balls with us at TopGolf! With nominal participation from 40 volunteers, we hope to raise $140,000 or more in the next several weeks to support Catalyst Partnerships’ mission! Last year, 30 committed participants - golfers and non-golfers alike - raised over $129,000 to serve elderly, disabled, and low-income neighbors! This year, we need passionate champions who are willing to step-up to continue supporting these efforts. We have made commitments, and now WE NEED YOU!
Right now we are putting together our 2021 Catalyst Golf Marathon Team and we want you on it! WE NEED YOU to participate in a KEY volunteer position. Each volunteer has a very limited, yet well defined, responsibility. We promise you, THIS WILL NOT TAKE A LOT OF YOUR TIME! We need volunteers who will commit to following the instructions of this proven program, raising significant dollars to keep serving people who really need our help.
You can be a Catalyst Golf Marathon Participant!
Here is what we are asking you to commit to:
Sponsor yourself for at least $1/ball ($100 total, but many of us sponsor ourselves for more!)
Share your commitment with friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc., and ASK THEM TO MATCH YOUR PLEDGE OR DONATE WHAT THEY CAN toward your cause. This is easy, as people will want to support you and help needy people in our community. This can be done in less than 5 hours over several weeks and we will show you how! Each participant has the goal to raise $2,500 or more ($1,000 option for first-timers) from our spheres of influence, AND IT WORKS! (NOTE: We know that $2,500 seems like a big number…but we assure you it is very doable! In past year's campaign 13 Participants exceeded $2,500, with 10 of them topping $4,000 and another 5 over $10,000! It will take about 5-7 hours of time over the next several weeks to make contacts and seek sponsorships.)
Show-up for the DAY OF CELEBRATION! You'll be in a team of 3-4 people in your own bay to enjoy golfing and food. We'll be working with TopGolf to observe all the appropriate COVID protocols.
You can also be a Catalyst Golf Marathon Team Captain!
We need 10+ Team Captains to pull-off this year's goals, would you be interested in leading a Team?
We have created a powerful website tool for this campaign, and it is the key to our success. On that site, you enter the pledge information for each of your sponsors. The site will then send each sponsor details for paying his/her pledge, and will send a big thank you email with tax-deduction letter at the end. You do not have to collect any funds, just get pledges from those you know and we take care of the rest!
People give to People. All you have to do is ASK for help in this all-out endeavor for Catalyst Partnerships.
As a non-golfing Participant YOU can still participate, and most of all make a BIG difference for Catalyst Partnerships.
Don't Golf? No Problem! TopGolf play is perfect for non-golfers to have a great time. Be sure to watch the video by clicking on the link at the top of this page for more info.
Physical limitation, or Can't Make It on May 22? No Problem...You can do the fundraising and we/you can get a proxy golfer to do the golfing in your place!
Let us know that you want to be a “Participant” or a “Team Captain” and we’ll handle the rest.
