MEMORABILIA AND GRANTS

Thank you for your interest in The Player Foundation! If your charitable organization is requesting signed memorabilia or a financial grant from us, please review the following guidelines as they have been established to help both requesting organizations and our Foundation in the decision-making process. Requesting organizations must have a registered 501(c)3 status, or have a sponsoring agency with this status. No exceptions. Please refer to the Grant Proposal Requirements and the Memorabilia Request Guidelines respectively. After you have reviewed the appropriate section, your formal request may be submitted and mailed to the following address:

PLEASE MAIL REQUESTS TO

The Player Foundation
c/o Program Director
PO BOX 906
Greenville, SC 29602

Requests must be received on the organization’s letterhead.

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.

So pleased that the Alfred Dunhill Championship is set to take place at @LeopardCreekCC in Nov., and the South African Open is headed to the Gary Player Country Club at @SunCityResortSA in Dec. Two wonderful design projects I worked on that will now play host to two great events.

Check out those pants! Just for fun, can you name what event and year this is from?

One of my duties is to help grow the game, so it’s always a good day when I get to meet young golfers and try to cultivate a passion for the game. I had a great time with @FirstTeePhilly - a youth development organization introducing golf and its inherent values to young people.
