Hi I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their auction procurement letter with me? I have never written one and I am not sure what info I should include.
Thanks for your help!

Thank you for the tip for SFO hotels. I will get on the internet and look around. I appreciate it.

For SF hotels, try contacting some hotels that are off the beaten track (ie: away from the typical tourist areas. Try in the financial district, for example). You might have more luck there than in the high-tourist areas like Fisherman's Wharf or other tourist areas.

I am looking for donations in the San Francisco area. Particularly hotel stays.
I have received a donation from Alcatraz Cruises and
Aquarium of the Bay. I would love to pair it with an overnight or a restaurant.
Any thoughts? I am also going to try for the Walt Disney Family Museum in SFO.
Thank you. This thread has been a lifesaver for my event coming up in February!

From talking to many companies that prefer to handle donations online, I've learned that they would much rather be acknowledged/mentioned on social media and be listed (and linked) from your organization's website, both actions that would help them with growing their businesses, than (no offense to your personal notes) receive another piece of mail that goes straight to the recycling bin. I would recommend making your "thank you" as public as possible. Tagging them in thank you announcements on your organization's Facebook page or Twitter account can even increase your organization's exposure to their fans.

I have a question regarding Thank you letters. We generally send all businesss who donate a personal thank you card. But I noticed with alot of the generous donations I got through online applications and email requests, that they DO NOT want paper requests sent in. What is the etiquette for this? How do you usually thank these companies?
