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.
