So, you’ve been put in charge of the upcoming fundraising event for your daughters’ school volleyball team, but you don’t know where to start. One possible starting point might be to try to get other parents involved in donating their time or money to your fundraising event. Sending out a fundraising letter to fellow parents can be a great way to get information about your cause in front of a large audience. Mailing out fundraising letters to parents can be a low-cost and relatively easy thing to do. In your fundraising letter to parents, be sure to be clear about what you are requesting and let them know how their donation positively affects school culture. Here is a sample fundraising letter to parents:

Dear {Insert Name}

I am writing this letter on behalf of Thompson Middle School’s 7th Grade Girls Volleyball Team. I am proud to tell you that despite our challenges this year with lack of equipment and staff trainers, our girls volleyball team has qualified for semi-finals for the state of Texas. For their hard work and dedication, the girls’ team will have the opportunity to attend the state championship in San Antonio this year.

To be able to attend this exciting event, and to get the girls new uniforms and proper equipment, we are asking for help from our fellow parents. We are asking for any financial contributions that your friends or family can provide for our volleyball team, which is appreciated and would work towards this worthy cause. We believe that winning a state championship will be an incredible boost to the school spirit and morale, and will help promote the positive reputation of this fine educational institution. Also, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these young girls and it will be a truly unforgettable experience for them.

Any financial donation that you can make would be vastly appreciated. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at {insert phone number}. I will follow up with you next week to answer any questions that you might have.
