Impact statement
This project will save us $2,140 , allowing us to increase staff hours spent on programming

Project Details

What We Need
  • A concise, well-articulated letter (not exceeding two pages) to request funds from individual donors
Additional Details

We would appreciate a fresh look at crafting our letter for the end-of-year appeal which will focus on our education programs and highlight the new bilingual "Rainbow Nutrition Cards" we recently designed.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have text for the letter and images we'd like to include, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have examples from prior years, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We are aiming to raise an additional $7,500 from individuals before the end of the year in order to meet our fundraising goals.

I appreciated Holli's suggestions and insights! She provided several great example letters that included fresh new language and was very easy to work with.

Kim at POP gave me all the base materials I needed to start on this project. Due to our time zone difference, I referenced the web site quite a bit for additional information. All was easy to find and helpful for the final drafts. Great organization to work with.
