Sample Letter for Fundraising :
Dear Friends & Family,
Insert personal story here.
As many of you know, I have retinitis pigmentosa (RP) which is a congenital, degenerative eye disease. In my case, it manifested itself initially in night blindness. Subsequently, I have lost all vision in my right eye and significant vision in my left. Although I hope to maintain visual acuity in my left eye, there is a possibility that total blindness may occur.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) is a national eye research organization that is dedicated to finding treatments and cures for RP and other retinal degenerative diseases. Since 1971, FFB has raised over $240 million to support critical research that may one day lead to the cure of these diseases. The culmination of more than three decades of research has resulted in discovering the building blocks for cures through novel treatments like gene therapy, pharmaceutical therapy, nutrition, drug delivery and retinal cell transplantation.
Because I am committed to raising funds for research, I will be participating in a family friendly walkathon event. The walk on (Day, Date) will be held at (location). My personal goal is to raise (Insert goal here: $500, $1,000, more!) for the walk! I invite you to join my team, (Team Name).
If you can’t join me, please consider sponsoring me for this very important event. Please make your check payable to The Foundation Fighting Blindness and send it to me at (address) in the enclosed envelope.
Thank you for your friendship and support. I know that with friends, relatives and colleagues like you, a cure is in sight!
