Sponsorship Request Letter

Sponsorship Request Letter


Money is a critical factor when it comes to just about every venture, be it a business, charity or public space. It isn’t uncommon for start-ups and businesses to try to attract investors and sponsors to fund their projects and companies. In situations, even charitable institutions try to invite sponsors to help fund their events and new projects which aim to benefit the needy and the poor such as an orphanage or an old folk’s home.

A Sponsorship Request letter is written to solicit financial commitment to a cause, which could be a charitable project or a fundraising event. It is a formal letter and must address the recipient directly with a polite tone. The contents of the letter should state the objective of the letter and the event targeted clearly. It must include in brief the relevant details, which would convince the prospective sponsor in agreeing to fund the event.

Subject: Sponsorship Request for Funfair


Dear Sir,

On behalf of the Bethel Cathedral, I would like to seek your participation as one of our primary sponsors for our annual funfair, which is scheduled to be held on DD/MM/YYYY.

This annual funfair which is held within the church compound will have many sponsors offering their products for sale, in addition to various other attractions. We are inviting the Persian Grocers to open up a booth or more to display your wares and I am sure that such an event will surely help your company gain a lot of good publicity. We would also like to request you that a portion of the sales for that day should be donated to the church for its new shelter construction and daily kitchen initiative which will definitely help feed some of the poorest and marginalized portions of the community.

In addition, we will be printing your company in our funfair booklet and church website. We look forward to your positive response to this sponsorship request and hope that you will participate in this blessed and kind endeavour. Last year’s fun fair brought in 5,000 visitors and generated $12,000 for the church fund and we are sure that with the help of people such as yourself, we will be able to do better in our attempt to help others.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Yours Sincerely,

Rev. James Dole

Bethel Cathedral
