Fort Hare Foundation Golf Days raise over R1 million

Read time: 1 min

Since its inception last year, the Fort Hare Foundation's East London and Gauteng Annual Fundraising Golf Days have raised just over R1 million.

The event is one of several activities in the resource mobilization strategy in support of the University’s Decade of Renewal. Each year the Foundation focuses on specific priorities that seek to enhance the profile of the University and raise funds to support these priorities such as the refurbishment of university infrastructure and bursaries for missing-middle students.

The event starts with golfers swinging their clubs on the course and ends with a glitz and glamorous black-tie gala evening where beautiful artworks produced by our Fine Arts students and historic UFH items are auctioned to the highest bidder.

While the core objective is fundraising, the event also presents an opportunity to build sustainable partnerships with businesses and other critical stakeholders.  

The 2nd annual event in East London on the 30th of September attracted 68 golfers and partnerships were forged with 10 businesses and stakeholders.

Thank you to all our partners and sponsors.
