Church Program Donation Letter

Church Program Donation Letter was created by Praying_helps
I am in desperate need of a donation letter for a church program for the youth. Instead of Halloween, I am planning a Glory night not only for our youth, but area youth as well. Does anyone have any examples of a Donation letter that I may use as an example.

Praying - I don't have a copy of a donation letter for myself but these were posted by Shawn on another thread. They look like they're easy enough to tweak for your own event. Good luck! Come back and let us know how everything went.

Subject: Donation for Teacher/Staff Appreciation Dinner

The parents of the (your school name) P.T.O. are once again planning our annual Teacher/Staff Appreciation Dinner to be held during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Every year we honor our schools hard working, dedicated teachers and their outstanding support staff with a dinner and door prizes. We have booked the (city) Nutrition Center for Thursday May 4, 2006 at 6:00 p.m. for this dinner. The food is purchased and prepared by the P.T.O., the dinner is served by Eugene Field’s student council representatives and desserts are homemade by our parent members.

As a parent I feel that (school)is very blessed to have such a wonderful group of teachers. Every teacher is an asset to our school and the parents and students are privileged to be a part of this.

Will you join our P.T.O. parent members, student council representatives and principal, (principals name)in giving our teachers a big Thank You! We are asking area businesses to donate an item or gift certificate that we can use as door prizes. If you are interested, you may contact the school at xxx-xxx-xxxx and ask for either (secretaries) or feel free to contact myself at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

We will be happy to pick up your donation and you will also receive a thank you from the P.T.O. with the name of the teacher who received your donation.

Thank you,


Dear Community Business,

On (fill in date) our school will be holding its (name of event). It is a wonderful family-oriented evening of games and food. Our ### students and their families will fill our school for this event.
Money raised will be used to support our (program). This fund provides teachers with money to purchase special learning materials, games, and supplies that will improve the quality of education our children receive. Our teachers have been able to add to their classroom libraries and advance our children in the areas of science and math with wonderful interactive games. Last year each of our ## teachers was allotted $$$ to utilize in their classrooms! We are very proud of the fact that our families can come together to improve our children’s education while also providing a safe, inexpensive, and totally family-oriented event.
This year we are offering a kid’s drawing for the children. They will have the opportunity to put their name in a box for a chance to take home a nice prize. If you could help us with a product or monetary donation we would greatly appreciate it. Your company’s name would be included on the prize as it is displayed in our school before the event and on the posters that will be at the sign-up table the evening of the event. You will also receive a wonderful thank you letter that you can post in your business to let the community know that you support education and family-oriented events. Many local businesses have already made donations of wonderful prizes ranging from food items to tickets to Adventureland! We hope that you will be able to join that group.
We are an IRS recognized non-profit organization and can provide you with paperwork to verify our status. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at or through the school at . My e-mail is and my phone number is .

Thank you for your time, consideration, and hopefully your donation.
