Write a Letter to Accompany a Contribution to a Good Cause
Dr. Mel Luthy, Chief Editor
Sample Letter #1
In memory of my deceased grandfather, John Doe, our family wishes to donate $20,000 toward the building of your new library.
Throughout his years, Grandfather stressed the importance of education and reading to all of his children and grandchildren. We feel that this is what he would have wanted us to do with the money that he left for charity.
Thank you for helping us honor his memory in this way. Best wishes to you as you complete the building.
Sample Letter #2
In the name of the Doe family, I am pleased to send a check for $500 payable to the March of Dimes. Two years ago the March of Dimes came to our family's assistance, and we appreciated it very much indeed. Now we want to help another family, as we were helped.
Sample Letter #3
We have learned that your daughter, Jane, requires a kidney transplant and we want to help. Please accept the enclosed $l,000 check to help with her medical bills. We wish it could be more. We extend our best wishes for a successful surgery.
Sample Letter #4
In memory of my mother, I would like to contribute $1,000 a year to set up the Jane Doe Memorial scholarship fund for needy undergraduate students. Although my mother completed only one year of college, she emphasized the value of a good education to her nine children. Many of us have gone on to obtain advanced degrees. She would be happy to sponsor a student in financial need so he or she could complete a college degree. Thank you for honoring my request to set up this fund.
