Sample Donation Request Letter
Greetings Ms./Mr. ...............,
We know .......(Company name) ........ supports local quality education. We are Central Jersey College Prep Charter School (CJCP) in Franklin Township, a US Dept. of Education 2016 Blue Ribbon School, and we are seeking modest support, $500 - $1,000, from local businesses to make a playground for our elementary students a reality. CJCP is an outstanding alternative for local families and an important part of the K-12 educational landscape in Somerset and Middlesex counties.
CJCP started in 2006-07 and this year will serve 816 students. CJCP's program emphasis is on college preparation and technology integration in a small school environment with low student-to-teacher ratio. The school provides Chromebooks to all upper grade students and iPads to elementary classrooms. CJCP students have outstanding standardized test scores and 100% high school graduation rate. CJCP is strong in STEM instruction and STEM-oriented clubs. The school has recently incurred high expenses related to moving and renovation in 2017-18 and the purchase of gymnasium equipment and seating. The children currently do not have any outdoor recreation facilities.
The New Playground projected cost is approximately $160,000, but may be $200,000 or more. As parents, our goal for this campaign is to raise $40,000. Please visit our Fundly fundraising site and consider making a tax-deductible donation*. CJCP is a registered 501c3 organization. Donors at the $500 and $1,000 levels will have their names or organizations appreciated in dedication plaques.
Our students need your help to add play to their day!
Please consider having your business added to our donor list! If you have any questions just respond to this email and I will get back to you.
