Memorabilia Request Guidelines
All signed memorabilia requests made by charitable, educational, and/or other institutional entity must go through the Foundation. Requests for individual/personal use are processed through the Gary Player Group general office.
Letters of inquiry should be typed on the charity’s letterhead to verify the authenticity of the fundraising event, and include the following information: a short summary on the cause, Federal Tax ID number, date of the event, as well as contact name and information.
Submission of a formal letter of inquiry does not guarantee that The Player Foundation will be able to fulfill the request.
Autographed items provided by The Player Foundation are not to be used for or provided to any of the following: for profit organizations, eBay or other online auction sites, personal use /gain.
The Player Foundation will secure autographs for charitable entities related to underprivileged children’s education.
While many organizations provide services that allow/encourage children to attend school (e.g. adequate housing or athletic involvement), to be true to our mission and to fulfill it fully, benefiting organizations must meet our complete mission.
Requests must be received a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the event deadline.
The Player Foundation will try to meet a charitable organization’s deadline; however, we can make no guarantees due to Mr. Player’s availability and schedule.
Requesting organizations may receive a maximum of ONE (1) donation per organization, per calendar year; Receipt of an item in no way guarantees subsequent donations.
The Player Foundation reserves the right to request the return of any autographed item: i.e. items that may appear on eBay or used in anyway that may be considered a Foundation policy violation.
Each autographed item is accompanied by a statement of authenticity (known as a Certificate of Authenticity COA) from The Player Foundation, good for the life of the autograph, which includes a description, date, and estimated value of the item.
At the completion of your organization’s event, a Donation Receipt Form will be completed and provided back to The Player Foundation. Click here to obtain a copy of Donation Receipt Form.
Additional Information for Schools:
Public and private schools (in US) requesting donation items may provide supporting evidence of their institution educating a significant population of underprivileged children by indicating if the school is/receives Title I funding and the percentage of students who are on the free/reduced lunch program. You may also provide the percentage of children who come from homes with annual incomes of less than $16,000.
Schools outside of the US should likewise provide supporting evidence that a significant percentage of children at the school are underprivileged.
