The LoveToKnow website contains templates related to sample donation letters. Four donation request templates are available through the website, and all have a different format and purpose.
Those looking to raise funds for a specific project should see the "project donation request." The "seeking individual sponsorship" template is for a participant in a run, walk or other fundraising event. To solicit donor support for a fundraising event, see the "fundraising event donation" form. Finally, the "gift for community development" letter allows one to raise money to support a disadvantaged area, whether it is poverty-stricken or impacted by a natural disaster. All sample letters are available to download in PDF format.
