Be an Ambassador for Common Cupboard!

A Golf Classic Ambassador is someone who cares about feeding local families, so they tell their friends about a golf tournament they are participating in that will help families in need.  They will ask their friends, neighbors, co-workers in person, by email or by phone to support them in this tournament and pledge to end hunger locally.  An Ambassador will golf in the Common Cupboard Golf Classic just like a walker walks in a walk-a-thon, for pledges and donations.

The first time we used this approach was for our July 4th race and the result was that we raised enough money to feed 500 families for a week! That event paid for an entire month of grocery distribution. Our goal is to double that this year and feed 1,000 families.  If your friend pledges $20, one family will get a week's worth of groceries.  $100 feeds 5 families.  $500 feeds 25.  You get the picture. 

Ambassadors golf for FREE! They also compete for prizes and trips when they reach certain FUNdraising goals. Contact Keith@CommonHeart.org for more information.

How do Ambassadors raise the pledges for Common Cupboard? The target is for each ambassador to contact at least 40 members of their sphere of influence through  email, mail, telephone and/or personal contact.  Share the story and ask for support.  We provide a sample letter and scripts. We also provide a website where your contacts can give online or they can make a pledge by email to you or on a pledge card we provide. 

Is there a minimum amount that each ambassador is expected to raise? There is no "minimum" for an Ambassador to raise  (I would hope that each Ambassador could raise at least $500). The historic average for a golf tournament is $900 per ambassador.  If an Ambassador raises at least $900 he/she will win a $100 restaurant gift certificate. There are other prizes for higher amounts raised including iPads, trips, etc.
