RE: Request sponsorship for an event
Dear Ms. Chew:
I am the event planner for ABC Company’s Annual awards ceremony. Every year we give a monetary award to high school seniors who have excelled in the field of environmental sustainability in all areas of life.
This year we have selected three teenagers who have made significant contributions to the city and will give the awards on June 15, 2022 at VENUE.
I would like to formally request your company to be one of the event’s corporate sponsors for $20,000. Your company will receive recognition as a supporter of a greener city.
We will include your company’s name and logo on the background banner for the award’s ceremony and will mention your support in the opening announcements.
The local TV news will attend as will three local newspapers, all of which have an online presence where your company will be highlighted.
I sincerely hope you will agree to sponsor this event. I can be reached at (343) 123-4567 or at email@example.com if you would like to arrange a time we can meet when I can give you the required forms and other details.
Thank you for your kind attention to my request. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

RE: Request sponsorship for non profit
Dear Mr. Hoffman,
I’m writing on behalf of Charity Works, a non-profit organization that helps the homeless people around the Huntington, WV area.
By writing this letter, I hope to persuade you to sponsor an organization that is always willing to lend a helping hand. You can join the many people who are already helping us with our valuable work in the area.
I would like to introduce Charity Works to you. We are a large organization that strives to make sure homeless people have food as well as basic hygiene items. We make every effort to offer them shelter when we can.
Through the generous donations, by people and establishments such as yourself, we are able to help the less fortune to meet some of their basic needs.
This year, we are branching out into a new direction, and want to help homeless children with their education. If your company can donate $1,000 this would help us reach our community goal of $20,000.
Or, if you would like, you can specifically sponsor two children at the Huntington Elementary school. Your donation will help to ensure a bright future of a less fortunate child.
Checks can be mailed and addressed to the address below. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me for more information. Thank you for your time.
