Church Fundraising Letter, Sample & Format
A church fundraising letter is written to the members of a church by its Pastor or Chairman with regards to a fundraising event organized by the church. The letter informs the church members of the church’s plans to raise funds for some specific purpose. The members are encouraged to participate in the cause.

Dear Keith Mason,
Subject : Church Fundraising
It is my pleasure as the Church Board Chairman to inform you that our church is planning a fundraising event to purchase another building on Kelly Street, in conjunction with our outreach program.
From our community survey, there is a need to set up a church in the Fourth District to meet the needs of the community there. An available 3-storey building is available for sale at $1.2 million. After much discussion, the Church Board is agreeable to the purchase. We have had this in mind for months to set up another church but the final decision was made only few days ago.
We are appealing to all members to participate in our fundraising to raise $1 million for the said purchase. Every community is encouraged to hold a fundraising event in the next six months.
The fund raising shall take place next week at the community garden from 9 am sharp. You are requested to be kindly present there. Thank you for your active involvement in the church plans. We hope an active participation from your side like you have always been.
With God’s blessings,
