If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
Our Charity Work

In today's challenging economic environment, non-profit leaders recognize the need for multiple funding sources and developing business alliances that enable them to accomplish their missions. BGI has successfully created and implemented strategies that accomplish both of those objectives through the game of golf.

The Game That Gives Back: The Charitable Impact of Golf

  • Golf is used as a vehicle to raise nearly $4 billion annually for charity in the United States, including both amateur and professional tournaments.
  • More than 143,000 total charity golf events are held, annually.
  • Charitable organizations who conduct golf events (85%) find them important to their fundraising efforts.
  • They provide exposure and networking opportunities among supporters, which leads to additional giving.

What are charity partners are saying:

"It was a pleasure working with John Boykin and his team for our inaugural golf tournament at the Concessions Club in 2020 and again in 2017. They understand the power of precise planning, flexible grace in the moment, and acting as an extension of our team in donor management and relationship development. We are committed to being part of the 2018 Series."

Jenine Rabin, Executive Vice-President
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

"Prior to working with John and Business Golf International I had heard of him and his firm by reputation only. From the initial concept and planning for our inaugural golf tournament our experience with John and his firm far exceeded the high expectations we had for this event. Many close to this event commented that John and BGI went “above and beyond” what we had hoped. John and his team not only oversaw the tournament from start to successful conclusion, he even negotiated and secured the most prestigious golf venue in Hawai‘i.  We started this journey looking for a professional organization to oversee all aspects of this event. What we ended up with was a true and trusted partnership with a consummate professional and a perfectly executed event from start to finish.  We could not be more satisfied with our association with John and BGI and we are already working on our third event for 2018 with BGI. For me, I ended with what will hopefully turn out to be a lifelong friendship with someone who loves golf even more than I do."
