I am on our local pre-school committee and have been asked to draft a letter asking local businesses for any donation (money or equipment from a list) for the pre-school. I have googled donation request letters / templates but I can't find anything very helpful.
Has anyone ever had to do this before and have you got a corking letter I could borrow and adapt???
We never ask for donations directly, only in support of fundraising activites. But I am sure you could adapt it. I have found much better responses come from hand delivering the letter BTW.
^We will soon be holding our big fund raising activity of the year, . As ever we will be raising funds for the pre-school to buy toys, games, books and equipment for our children. The staff and parents of the pre-school work very hard towards all our fund raising events but we have to rely on donations for raffle prizes.
If you could possibly help with the donation of a raffle prize, we would very much appreciate it. We do of course publicise the companies that support us, as our way of a thank you.
All monies raised are spent on the children. A pre-paid envelope is enclosed should you wish to donate. We thank you for your help and co-operation.^
