In this soft economic climate, JT Townsend and the JT Townsend Foundation are sensitive to the challenges facing many local non-profit organizations. A unique solution is proposed: JTTF will partner with local charitable organizations to co-host one significant special event, rather than each group hosting individual events. This enables the participating organizations to share expenses, leverage resources (staff, volunteers, in-kind donors and cash supporters) and collaborate for the greater good of our community.
The concept is simple, but with a twist. With the help of honorary chair professional golfer Fred Funk, JTTF would like to co-host a gala celebrity weekend in early 2013 at TPC Sawgrass. Five non-profit organizations will serve as co-hosts, and will share efforts in:
- Securing hole sponsors
- Table sales
- Auction item procurement
On the revenue side, our event co-hosts will directly receive the proceeds from the sponsorships, table sales, etc. that they solicit and collect. The more the organizations sell, the more revenue they will generate.
On the expense side, all expenses for the gala weekend will be shared equally among the participating organizations, minimizing the investment. Each non-profit will also provide a staff member or Board member to serve on the event committee. It’s important to us that all organizations have input and are engaged in the process.
Local non-profit organizations interested in learning how to become a JTTF partner should contact Board Chair, Judith Zitiello via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 904/273.3999.
We are excited about this unique fundraising opportunity, and look forward to the beginning of North Florida’s newest charitable tradition.
At JTTF, we know there are many individuals and large companies that share the common goal of providing hope for improvement and overcoming obstacles that sometimes seem impossible. JTTF wants to make the impossible possible by helping others take that next first step.
We are actively seeking to partner with individuals and corporate sponsors that share this common goal and are willing to devote resources to promoting and achieving the goals of The JT Townsend Foundation, Inc. Our EIN # 27-3033901
