Sample Fundraising Letter :
March 10 - 2006
Dear Family and Friends,
I recently accepted the challenge to serve as Chair of the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB). It will be held on May 7, 2006, 8:30 a.m. at William R. Boone high school in Orlando, Florida. And, I could really use your help.
Ginny and I are involved in this effort because our youngest daughter, Cathy, has Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) Usher syndrome which impacted her hearing and currently is causing a progressive loss of vision. As a single mom now, she faces many incredible challenges. But, as she often says, “This is not just about me.” She’s right. It’s about nine million Americans with RP and other retinal diseases such as Macular Degeneration who without a cure can lose their sight.
Our walk theme is A CURE IS IN SIGHT. And it is. Through new science discoveries and technology advances, human experiments are now starting. These can result in both stopping sight losses and restoring lost sight. We need you.
