When crafting the letter so that it's easy to ready, indent paragraphs, and ensure each paragraph is no more than seven lines long, but vary the length of the paragraphs. Use bullet points instead of listing items within a sentence. The writer should use subheadings and underline key words sparingly to call attention to those words or phrases.
Close the letter by thanking the donors in advance for their anticipated contribution. This makes a subtle assumption that the donor will contribute. Emphasise again why the donation is so important, reinforcing why the donation is needed and outline the consequences if the donor does not act.
