New Crowdfunding Platform With Mobile App for Golfers, A HOLE MATTERS, Revolutionizes Charity and Personal Fundraisers

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - A new online crowdfunding platform with a free corresponding mobile app for golfers, A HOLE MATTERS, is now available on the App Store, Google Play and on the Web.

Golfers who have installed A HOLE MATTERS app on their iPhone or Android device can pledge any amount to a charity or individual fundraiser they support based on their scores on all, any or a hole they play during a round. Funds raised are automatically calculated and golfers can make their donation right from their smartphone using a credit or debit card. Donations are securely processed by WePay, the leading payment processor for crowdfunding sites.

A HOLE MATTERS is not just for golfers. Any individual or charity can create a fundraiser on A HOLE MATTERS at www.aholematters.com and invite their supporters to donate directly to their fundraiser. Creators of fundraisers can set fundraising goals and deadlines, but A HOLE MATTERS is not an all-or-nothing platform. Therefore, even if creators do not meet their fundraising goal, they are still able to receive their funds.

With A HOLE MATTERS, charities that are designated as 501(c)(3) now have the ability to receive ongoing donations year round from golfers and their non-golfing supporters. To do so, nonprofit organizations MUST claim their page at https://aholematters.com/non-profit by searching for their charity using their name or Tax I.D. Once their charity's page is claimed, they can create as many fundraisers as they want by logging in to their dashboard and invite their supporters to either donate directly or install the app if they are golfers. Claiming a nonprofit page ensures that charities receive their donations directly from each donor so they receive any tax benefits for their donations.

With so many nonprofit organizations dependent on their annual charity golf tournament to raise funds, A HOLE MATTERS gives them the ability to receive donations from their golfing supporters whenever they play at any golf course. A HOLE MATTERS has most golf courses and nonprofits listed on their database.

To name a few, the following nonprofits have claimed and created fundraisers on their A HOLE MATTERS nonprofit page:

- Folds of Honor provides educational support to spouses and children of America's fallen and wounded soldiers.
- The American Widow Project provides vital support to military widows with programs that unify, educate empower and assist in rebuilding their lives in the face of tragedy.
- Young Survival Coalition provides comprehensive support and resources for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
- The Rose provides screening, diagnostics, and access to treatment to women regardless of their ability to pay.

A HOLE MATTERS golf app features tools to help golfers play better. Some of the key features golfers will love include:

  • GPS rangefinder showing yardages to the front, center and back of the green
  • Touch screen that shows accurate distance to hazards and bunkers anywhere from tee to green
  • Real-time wind speed and direction
  • Scorecard and stats tracking
  • Live Leaderboard (for golfers that play together at the same golf course for the same fundraiser)
  • Social media sharing of rounds and funds raised
