School Fundraising Letter

Many schools might see that need to expand or maybe take students for a trip somewhere far. With this sometimes the school budgeted funds of the year cannot accommodate the extra projects. So with the need of funds, the best thing you could do is send every pupil home with a school fundraising letter. This will enable you to achieve the needed amount.
A school fundraising letter requires more detailed information since it involves many parties. The potential donor, school and also the pupils are all important in the letter. To get the funds you need to write a letter that fully explains the schools fundraising project and how it will benefit the students at the school.

  • Identification – make sure when you start writing this letter to you donor you specify the name of the school needing the funds, the need of the funds and also the amount required for donation.
  • Benefits – depending on why you need the funds from the fundraiser you need to explain how it will benefit the school, the pupils and also the community at large. With these informative details, you will be able to steer the donors mind towards the donation of funds.
  • Personalize – a donor is also a human being so when you get right down personal with them, they will understand the message. Make them see the objective though of the fundraiser, be emotional, get deep into these feelings.

Dear Brenda:

Glad ways Primary school would like to announce that we are holding a fundraiser on 11th October for the construction of a new playground.

This will enable us to change the old playground which is unsafe and a health hazard to your kid.

The support you lend to our new playground is not counted in dollars and cents but in the “spirit

Of community.”

This will be a great project that you as a parent can join in and do something. As a donor you are required to donate a minimum amount of 15,000 shillings. This will enable the ground to be fully fixed from scratch. A new playground will be put to replace the old one.

School fundraising letters are written to encourage parents and students to work for such charity institutes. This helps the children to know what is working for such charities. The parents who cannot devote time for such events can cover their presence by donating funds for such welfare and the rest can help in their own ways. Such letters create a good bonding between school management and the students which really helps in many ways.
