Charity Fundraising Letter, Sample & Format
A charity fundraising letter is written by some organization to solicit funds from various companies for some charity. There are many kinds of charities that would require fundraising. An orphanage or a nursing home for an instance. These are non-profitable organizations and their sole purpose it to serve the people. These organizations provide services for free but there are a lot of things for which they do not have enough funds, and so a fundraising charity letter is sent to people who are interested in charity work.The letter should state the purpose of the fundraising as well as how the funds would be used specifically, for accountability.
The letter should appeal to the recipient’s generosity to make the donation. It is a letter for official purposes, and so the format has to be correct and formal. Be polite and to the point.

Dear Sir / Madam
RE: Charity Fundraising
On behalf of the Senior Club of Hamilton, allow me to introduce myself. I am the event organizer for the upcoming Centennial Celebration of the Hamilton Senior Club. This club has over 100 members aged 65 and above.
But many of them do not have families and stay on their own or in Senior Home; hence, the Hamilton Resident Association is organizing a charity fundraising event through a dinner on DD/MM/YYYY, in honor of these well-respected veterans of our community.
Since your organization has always been in support of us, May I encourage your esteemed organization to purchase a table or two for these seniors who have contributed to the well-being of our nation? Let us bless them in their golden years in conjunction with the Centennial Celebration. Each table is at $500.
The funds collected will be used to organize activities to keep our seniors alert and healthy. We look forward to your generous contribution. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanking you on behalf of the Senior Club,
Mary G. Murchison
