Introducing a new OPPORTUNITY from Homes for Our Troops
For the past nine years, the golf community has generously given back to our severely injured veterans by raising funds for Homes for Our Troops. This fundraising is done through golf events, military appreciation nights, and other events.
Homes for Our Troops’ “Home in One Challenge” is an opportunity for the golf community to give back in a tangible way. Accepting the Home in One Challenge is a commitment to raise the funds needed to build a home for a severely injured veteran over the course of one year. It can be one club, or a group of clubs, making a promise to a family to bring them home.
The cost to build a specially adapted, mortgage-free home is $400,000. By pledging your support to raise these funds, Homes for Our Troops can take a severely injured veteran off of our waiting list.
What will HFOT do to support my event?
- Provide the HFOT Proud Supporter logo to be used in event promotion
- Post a flyer for the event on our website’s events calendar
- Provide promotional material for attendees or to be placed at an awareness table
- Send acknowledgement letters to all direct contributors to HFOT
- Issue thank you certificates to you and, as requested, to your supporters
Will donations to our event be tax deductible? In order to answer this question, you would need to discuss with your tax accountant.
What happens if we don’t raise the $400,000? We appreciate all efforts made by our fundraisers! There is no penalty for not reaching your $400,000 goal.
Can my donations be designated to a specific veteran/state? We encourage fundraisers to hold their event in honor of a veteran family of their choosing. Check out our online project map here. If that veteran's home is fully funded, the rest of the fundraising dollars will go to another veteran family.
