Charity Letter for School Sample

Lombard, IL 60125
Subject: Donation for school
I came to know about your school a few days ago and I am very glad and hope your hard work takes this school to greater heights every year. The best feature of your school is that the school admits only the poor and orphans who can’t afford to pay for their education. I also came to know that your school runs mainly on charity. I admire and respect the kind of work you have been doing and would like to make my sincere contribution to the school.
I would like to donate a sum of 3000$. The amount might not benefit all the students but at least some children will be benefited by it. Please feel free to ask me for any other favors too as I would love to help your cause.
