Fundraising Letters

Fundraising letters are letters written to seek financial support for a cause, charity, or other enterprises. Such letters are often geared towards non-profit organizations and churches that are looking for contributions. Fundraising letters should be sent early enough in advance of the event so that the recipient can have enough time to respond to your request. If you know someone who knows the donor personally, include their names or have them sign the letters as making a personal contact may sometimes secure a donation.

Although sending out fundraising letters may seem old-fashioned, if crafted correctly, these letters can be extremely effective. Grab the recipient's attention from the start. Use the recipient's name so that he/she can know that the letter was intended for him/her, and not just some supporter. If he/she has made another donation in the past, thank him/her for it before asking again. Mention what the donation is intended for. Where appropriate, mention some of the past achievements of your organization. Explain the urgent need for the donation and how the recipient can help contribute to it. Tell the recipient how important he/she is to the cause. End by thanking the recipient in advance for his/her support.
