To,

Mr. Johnson Bane

Respected sir,

I am writing this letter with all my due respect in order to make a request to you to give me donation for the treatment of my husband who is suffering from cancer. He is admitted to the hospital from last 3 months and all my savings are already used for his treatment. Doctor has advised treatment for the next 3 months but now I don’t have any amount to spend on his treatment. I am already living from hand to mouth. I don’t have any other source of income. I have 3 children to feed and to pay school dues. I know you are a very generous man and always help people who are in state of need. I have great expectations from you. Please find attached medical certificates of my husband and hospital bills. I request you to consider my request and help a poor soul to bring back to life. I shall be really thankful to you till my last. I am looking forward to a positive response. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Armish Marshel

Fundraising Methods for NGO, Charities, Schools, Non Profits and Businesses

Here you will learn from my 10 years of experience exclusively in fundraising for NGO and Schools. I will try to provide you a list with details of all the methods we used for fundraising.

As introduction I want to tell that i was very successful to raise funds for my ngo. When I joined this ngo its annual operational expenses were 10 million a year and now the annual expenses are more than 120 million a year. I am fulfilling all the requirements of my ngo with just a team of 4 members.

You can find our annual plan for fundraising, requirements of budget, yearly activities for fundraising.

Keep in mind my ngo work at one city only and our donor network is also limited. We are not like bigger ngos who raise funds at national level.

So starting with our main tools for fundraising. I will list down all the methods with priorities we are using.

Donation Request Letters for Fundraising

Direct donation request letters for individuals and companies with brochure is very useful and most responsive fundraising method for every NGO, Business or a charity organization. You shall collect data and start sending letters and later screen out the correct data vs incorrect data, responsive data vs non responsive.

Keep in mind on your first letter response will be minimum so you may need to send at least three letters to get maximum response from any data.

  • What to write in Donation Request Letters for Fundraising

You must provide/write a genuine reason to raise funds and if you are write of old donors than you must start letter with thanking them for their previous contribution.

SMS for Donation Request and Reminders for Fundraising

Sending donation requests in sms is also becoming most responsive, quick and cost effective for fundraising. From SMS normally response comes in minutes and hours.

  • You can have list of donor mobile numbers.
  • You can have list of golden mobile numbers.
  • You can have list of business mans mobile numbers.

Some time sms becomes most irritating so please do not send repeated sms. SMS should be once in two weeks if necessary. not more than this at all.

Followup Phone Calls to Donors for Fundraising

You will find this fascinating when calling to your old donors and reminding them for donations. Please remember to keep the call very short and limit to donation request with reason only.

School Campaigns for Fundraising

It is also easy and great method to raise funds from school. You have to get permission from the school administration for fundraising campaign and manage to reward the students with appreciation certificates for their participation. The amount depends on the school strength and financial background of the students.

You can ask the students to sell tickets or simply give them envelopes with donation request to donate amount and tell them the reward for certain amounts. You will get very good response.

Donation Boxes for Fundraising

You can place donation boxes in malls, pharmacies and various other types of shops in your area. But as per my experience donation boxes in pharmacies give maximum outcome. This method also need some struggle like various visits to get permission and place the box, late collecting amount from the boxes regularly.

Personal Visits to Donors/Companies for Fundraising

Crowd Funding Platforms for Fundraising

You can use the crowdfunding platforms for fundraising as part of your campaign. We also used some platforms and successfully raised funds for some of our projects. But to use these platforms you need design attractive campaign and later you have to promote it within your circle for fundraising.

We were using Gofundme and globalgiving for our fundraising campaigns.

How and Where We Collect Data of Donors?

We purchase business directories, booklets, phone directories, business unions like chamber of commerce, textile, sugar, steel, software houses, society residents,  society members and every source where we can find names, addresses, phones, etc related to individuals and businesses.

Even we are also used to note resident names from the gates of good/worthy houses.

How We Spend Your Donation

An explanation letter to donor that how we spend donations to get more donation from the donor.

Donation Request Letter for School

Dear Ms. Sajida Sharif,

Thank you very much for you call regarding information about donation/zakat spending at AH Foundation. I am very happy to write this email because only few people ask about such details.AH Foundation is one of the largest institute for primary education and special education in Pakistan with state of the art two campuses with facilities on international standards. We are catering more than 1000 students in our two campuses and 60% of them are totally free while remaining 35% are highly subsidised.
Most of the children are zakat deserving and we are very careful about spending zakat and donations separately and we also make sure the spending are only for the needy. AH Foundation Spends Rs. 10,000/- per month per child for the following services as per their needs:
  • Psycho Social and Educational Assessment
  • Daily Living Skills
  • Computer Education
  • Sensory Integration Therapy
  • Physio Therapy
  • Hydro Therapy
  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Occupation Therapy
  • Vocational Training
  • Kitchen Training
  • Transportation
  • And many more which can be seen in a visit.
You can send your contribution as sponsorship of the students because this is the best and direct utilisation of zakat/donations on the needy students. I think my writing isn’t enough to understand our services for deserving Children.
But seeing is believing so I will request you to spare some of your time and visit as Aurora Company Team to our Head Office any time during 8:30 to 3:00 from Monday to Friday. I am sure you will feel the amazing work AH Foundation is carrying forward for this most neglected noble cause of Education in our country.
I will be very happy to provide any further information that you may require from AH Foundation. Further If required I can visit or send our brochures with complete information.
Looking for you contribution.
Warm Regards,
Tehreen

Sample Request Letter for Construction of School Building

Prayer for a Grant for Reconstruction of School Building

Dear people

I am writing to you because I would like your prayers for the grant of the reconstruction of the local school building. The local school of this village is run down it is very old and falling to pieces. The school is the only school for 20 miles and the school barley past the last health and safety inspection. This is due to the structure of the building it needs new foundation. The school board have placed their case to the government and have raised the necessary money needed to fund it all we need is permission from the government to grant us this.

If we get this then from the time the construction starts it will take up to five months to complete. I know that this is a long time for the school to close down and I know you are all worried about your children’s education. So don’t be worried we have made an arrangement with village hall to hold the classes for the full time for the construction. We need your prayers and thoughts I hope and pray that we get this for the future of the village children.

Kind regards

Village mayor

Sample Request Letter to Donor for Building Construction

Need an example of a project proposal letter  to a donor requesting the construction of toilets for the school.

Dear school donor

I am writing to you because I would like to request that the school have the permission to carry out some construction of the toilets for this school. We are a small school and we don’t have the right funding we need so anything we get financially goes to important things like teachers and equipment for the students. However one important thing we have not the money for until recently. Now that we have the money we would like to carry out some construction on our toilets as for over three years we have neglected to get them up to standards. Last week the school safety inspector came and the one thing he had a problem with was the toilets.

Even though we are a small school we still have 100 students and at the moment we don’t have toilets in the school because they are not safe. We would like to do construction to make them safe. If we get permission it would take one weekend to complete. We would add toilets so six students can go at one time and we would include a disabled toilet. We have some other things to modify like the sinks and the doors. I hope that you will let us do this and soon so that we can have this school up to safety standards.

Yours sincerely

Mr. Will Young (school head teacher)

Email Letter Requesting For Donations for a Family in Need

To Community Members,

I am writing to you because I am in need for some help. A member of my family is very sick. I am a father and a best friend. I’m a forensic scientist. My son is a police officer in training for the metropolitan police and he is the most generous and noble person in this world. He has a wife and a new born baby girl. Last week he fell sick very suddenly he was healthy and fit. Doctors say that he won’t live till the end of this month. However there is a way that the doctors in the USA can help. There they have more advanced medicine and technology to help my son get better. But my family is poor we don’t have the money to send him to another country with the medical support that he needs. So I am asking as a father please we need your help, my son needs your help. We need your kind donations so that my son can have a chance to see his new born daughter his first child grows up. Even a little donation can help go a long way. So again please helps.

With my heart

Dear Sir,

I am Jonathan Patrick, resident of Gulberg Lahore. I appreciate your struggles and support to the needy people. I want to acknowledge you that there is a family nearby me, there is one old couple with three daughters and 1 son.

His parents are still in shock because of his sudden death. His sisters are studying and parents are old enough to work.

They have to pay the hospital bills for their (late) son’s treatment and medication. There is only God who is with them and you are after God. I request you to help them and offer some donations so they can at least pay the bills and they can survive till their daughters are able to work.

They need your concern and support. Kindly help them.

Calcutta, India.

Sir,

I hope that you are reading this in good health. I am very pleased to write you that I have availed myself of the desired opportunity. I am completely satisfied with the decision of study abroad, and have reached safe and sound. I will start my semester from the second of the next month. Currently, I am preparing myself for several documentations.

However, I would like to express my hearty gratitude to you. The dream would never have come true without the financial help of The Help Foundation. It is a great platform for the less privileged females to head towards the road of success. The NGO is truly working for the right purpose of helping in building the empowerment of the women. This would entirely be beneficial for the development not only of the women, but also of the country in the long run.

Thank You.

Sponsorship Letter School Supplies

To,
Market manager,

Sir,

I am running a charity school which relies on donations for working. We adopt and educate homeless and orphans who grow up to be successful and to contribute in society. However, our school is going through a financial crisis lately and I find it hard to manage the school items. We have a large number of students and a fairly large audience to appeal. It is an opportunity for your company to earn good repute as well if you provide us with school items.

In wake of above mentioned conditions, your sponsorship for school items is requested. Not only would it help us keep doing a good work but also enable you to participate in it. It also advertises your company in good faith.

I hope you will consider to sponsor.
With regards

Dear Sir,

As you know our school is making more progress by generating good grades and keeping our promise of healthy education for our kids, the grades show that we are making the progress. I will attach the documents which clearly highlights our school’s progress which means we are making good use of the donations you previously provided us and we are really thankful for your kind help that you do for our school.

Coming to the point sir, I’m writing this letter for a little more help as a charity for our school as you see we are making progress and the parents are really keen to admit their kids in our school. We are getting short of the classrooms because the numbers of students are getting more and we don’t have many classes.

I would really appreciate if you could do your best to help us establish a better future for our upcoming generation. I want you to pool in the donation as much as your pocket agrees we respect and appreciate the help you do for us. I will wait for your reply.

Yours truly;

Principal
