Raising big money can be a challenge and can often mean a large investment in time and resources. Sending out targeted fundraising letters can still be a great way to raise money. They can be sent out via email or regular US mail and can be an effective way of raising large sums of money for your non-profit. When writing a capital campaign letter, it’s important to try to tailor your letter to each donor and highlight how your charity or organization is meeting the needs of the greater community. Here is a free sample capital campaign letter:
