Sample Letters Asking for Donations
Any cause is incomplete without a considerable amount of monetary support. Whether you are
preparing for a fundraiser, a social event or are a non-profit organization, sizable donations or
sponsors are always required. Even though it may not be tough for you find a donor for your cause,
approaching him/her can be a completely different story, which is why, it is important to know how
and when to go ahead. The main issue is to reach out to the donors in an appropriate manner. If you
cannot have a face-to-face discussion with your prospective donor, asking for a donation through a
letter can also help. Even if you choose to ask for a donation over the phone, an aptly written
donation request letter needs to follow.
Tips for Writing a Donation Request Letter
The following tips, alongside the regular letter writing rules, may help you largely to write an
effective donation request letter.
Identify your prospective donor, and collect his/her correct details including name, address,
telephone number, occupation, place of work, and so on.
When writing a donation request letter, make sure that it is brief as well as informative.
The language should be as simple as possible, but the purpose of your letter should stand out.
Never stipulate the amount of donation. However, words such as 'generous' or 'proportionate' may
suffice.
Provide all the required details, so that the reader is convinced that you are genuine.
Cite your motto and mission statement at the start of the letter itself.
Use a polite, but a confident and a positive tone throughout the letter. Ensure that you make the
reader feel important, so that the chances of his/her contributing to your cause are maximized.
In the end, do not forget to thank the reader in advance for considering and giving his/her valuable
time to your request.
If you have a pre-designed letterhead of your organization, use it to write a donation request letter.
Otherwise, you can type your and your organization's details on the top of a plain, preferably A4
sheet.
Sample Letters for Requesting Donations
The following samplers will give you fair ideas to write effective donation request letters:
Sample Letter #1

Joe J. Casey

Subject: Request for donation to a children's charity
Dear Mr. Casey,
I, the undersigned, am writing to you on behalf of Kids CareNation, a non-profit organization,
working towards the cause of providing adequate health and hygiene facilities to the African
children. I am the coordinator of the fundraising campaign that we organize every year, to gather
funds which can be utilized towards our cause.
You can send in your donation, either by
check, or by demand draft, drawn in favor of
'Kids CareNation, WI'. You may also donate
using your debit/credit card through our
website 'www.CNWI.abc'. All the money
generated through our campaign will be used
to provide healthy and hygienic food to
children, especially from African countries
where the rate of undernourishment is high.
A significant portion of the proceeds will also
go towards providing deprived children with
adequate medical aid and a cleaner
environment. With the help of donations which we received last year, we have been able to make a
difference to the lives of about 1,500 children.
I thank you in anticipation for considering our request for donating funds for the sake of
underprivileged children. Together, we can make their lives much easier and better. If you have any
queries about our organization or our work, please feel free to contact us at the address or the

Donation request letter from a non-profit concern striving to provide mainstream education and
recreational facilities to unprivileged children.

Shaker Heights, OH 44120

Date: mm/dd/yyyy
Justin B. Petrie
1190 Valley Lane
Austin, TX 78746
Subject: Request for donation
Dear Mr. Petrie,
I am writing on behalf of the Hope Children's Center. Since quite a few years, we have been
providing thousands of children in our community with free access to counseling, after-school
tutoring, mentoring, and recreational programs. This has been made possible by the numerous
generous donations we have received from our aware citizens.
Last year, the donations helped purchase new books for our growing library, and we also started a
scholarship fund to aid deserving children pay for their school/college. We also celebrated the high
school graduation of 11 of our children; 7 of whom began their post-secondary studies during this
fall. However, none of this would have been possible without the generosity and support of people
like you. This year, our goal is to raise an adequate amount to purchase new sports equipment, and
have the outdoor playing field cleaned up and landscaped for recreational use. Studies have shown
that children who participate in sports are more likely to succeed as adults. We hope to give this
advantage to our children.
We hope you will join us in our mission of educating our next generation, and providing them with
recreational amenities. Donations can be made via our website 'www.hcc.abc'. You can also send a
check payable to 'Hope Children's Center' at the address mentioned above. In case of any queries,
do contact us at the email id, 'BernardISmith@hcc.abc' or at the telephone number mentioned
above.
Thanking you in anticipation.
Yours faithfully,
