Special Appeal Letter

Sample Letter #1

You have given generously to our family crisis program in the past, and we want you to be among the first to hear our wonderful news!

From now until the end of July, the Springfield Retail Corporation has offered to provide a three-to-one match on the funds we raise for our center. This means that for every dollar our donors give, the Retail Corporation will give $3.

This generous offer means that our comprehensive Youth and Family Center can finally become a reality. It will cost $960,000 to build, so if we can raise $240,000, we will be able to have all of our youth and family oriented programs in one location. Families in crisis will no longer have to search all over town from agency to agency to find the help, education, and support they need.

With your help, we can do this. Will you start the ball rolling by sending $100 or as much as you can afford today?
