Father of the bride speeches

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Worried Wedding Speech giver,

''I am Adams from the United States. This happened to our family prior to my daughter’s wedding and it can happen to you too unless you…

Life isn't  always fair-Is it?

Granny once said life was not fair. I found it hard to understand her words until tragedy struck our home. Words cannot adequately describe how I felt  as my  daughter’s wedding drew near.

Sadly,however,days  before  her  big  day, my wife’s brother was involved in a bloody road accident when returning home from work. His cherry-red Toyota Highlander ran into a truck. The vehicle was terribly mangled and three of his co-workers died on the spot.

When news of the disaster reached us, we were simply shocked and we couldn’t apply our minds to the wedding planning.

Our wedding plans grounded to a halt.

I wondered why that dark cloud over our roof at that crucial moment. Our hearts was in our mouth and we didn’t know what to do. We had to attend to him all the time and we lost touch with the wedding planning festivities.

We had wanted to cancel the marriage plans but we couldn’t because many of our guests had written or emailed to confirm that they were coming.

My daughter couldn’t take it . She feared her kind uncle might not been able to make it. Added to this was the fact everything had come to a halt.Sometimes, she did sob like a worried child on my wife’s shoulders but I kept reassuring her that all shall be well.

In less than two weeks to go, the doctor carried out a surgery on his right thigh. It took twelve hours for the doctors to correct a dislocated bone.

Despite the odds prevailing against us, we put our acts together to ensure nothing was left to chance. The wedding preparations resumed albeit on a rather low note.

An unusual miracle!

One sunny afternoon, something unusual occurred was awakened by the persistent cries of the home phone and so I quickly grabbed the receiver.

‘Is this Adam?’, the caller asked.

’Of course’,I countered.

‘’Michael is doing so well and we have agreed to discharged Monday afternoon.’’,she said reassuringly.

I broke the ‘’sweet’’ news of his recovery to the family and everyone was in joy. My wife knelt and raised both arms the way Holy fathers pray in a monastery. I broke down in tears of joy and tears dripped down my daughter’s soft cheeks.

It was unbelievable when we picked him up from the hospital. He didn’t suffer any bone damage.He wasn’t even hobbling.

He was the Mike we always knew! I never believed in miracles till that day I saw him walk out of the hospital with my naked eyes! Seeing the extent of damage of his auto, I thought he did come out paralyzed.

My wife came to my rescue

His remarkable recovery lifted our spirits and we worked around the clock to ensure things were properly fixed for our daughter's marriage. With less than three days to our daughter’s wedding, my wife asked, ‘’Honey, how can we make the day memorable?’’

Frankly, I couldn’t think of a neat idea. Hours later, she suggested a wedding speech. My face fell at her suggestion because I once embarrassed myself when asked to give a short speech at a family party.

‘’Emily, we better give her childhood scrapbook’’, I countered

‘’That’s OK for her but how about the guests? I read from somewhere that the giving of wedding speeches linger on their minds more than anything else. Please forget about your past public speaking failures and give it a try.’’ , She admonished

‘’OK my dear'', i replied

This goldmine was very valuable and it can help you

I must confess that I went online and scoured everywhere until I found your speech samples. It was exactly what I was looking for. It helped me to put my exact thoughts and emotions into words.

The tips on overcoming wedding speech worries abated my fears and it inspired me to develop self-confidence. It was a real blessing.

I shared the story of my brother –in-law’s incredible recovery and the challenges that ensued. Mike, my brother-in-law, my wife and daughter and some guests had moist eyes. As I blurted on, they couldn’t fight back their tears any longer.

Some of the wedding guests even shared tears. They were moved by my wedding speech. When It was over the family came to hug me and a guest thought I was a pro!

The experience was so magical. The success stories saved me.

Are you ready for a thrilling ''ride'' with me? Ok…then please put away all distractions, grab your note pad and pen, may be a cup of coffee and let’s hit the road running.

 

From being there at the hospital to watch your son’s arrival into this world, to when he learned to call your name, to when he went on vacations with you, you have struck a bond that will last forever.

 

All too soon, he’s grown into a fine young man and found the love of his life. He’s getting married and I am sure he’s asked you to make a speech at his wedding. What an honor!

 

If you hate being in the public eye, that will be very terrifying and leave you with a very uncomfortable feeling. Well, if you are a pretty confident speaker, you might decide to write your speech.  But it might not be well-received because wedding speeches are quite different from the others out there.

 

In the next few lines, I am going to share with you what really goes into writing a great father of the groom speech toast so you can figure out how to write a heartfelt father of the groom toast for your son and daughter-in-law without trying so hard.

 

I am always amazed whenever I read notes of panic-stricken dads who have run out of words or don’t know what to say. I always attribute that dilemma to not preparing well enough before they speak.  

Father of the groom wedding toast

If you really want to strike a chord with the guests, you need to mentally prepare before you even sit down to write your wedding toast.

 

Preparing mentally helps you develop a strong sense of self, helps you to overcome self- doubts, and boost your self- confidence so you can deliver the best ever father of the groom speech or toast.

 

When it comes to delivering your speech with confidence and clarity, mental preparation always precedes the actual performance.  As you are very much aware, all goals begin in our heads as dreams, wishes and ambitions. So, it is with your father of the groom toast.

 

Here are two proven ways to mentally prepare yourself for a great performance.

 

First, watch a few video clips of how amazing father of the groom speeches or toasts are delivered. Youtube.com has several of such video clips. Taking time out to watch a few of these short films can give you a fair idea of the stuff great toasts are made of.  This is what I recommend you do right now. Click on any of the videos below and study them briefly.

 

Here you go:

 

Father of the groom speech video#1

 

 


Father of the groom toast video# 2

 

 

Did you enjoy listening to both clips? I did find both entertaining and inspiring.  Did you learn a thing or two from watching both clips? Any takeaway from viewing them?  

 

Second, father of the groom speech samples/templates are also indispensable tools that can help you mesh your exact thoughts and emotions together into a very lovely toast.  There are several examples online you can learn from. But here’s the thing. Most of the samples you will find have lost its appeal because they have been copied verbatim and used by several speech givers.

 

Of course, you can use them as inspiration to help you create your own train of thoughts. I have a good example for you. But I am not going to share it in its entirety.  Just bit and pieces of it sprinkled with helpful comments.

 

Third, you should come up with an outline for your father of the groom wedding toast and then work into your message the right stuff.  The most common order in outlines usually follows this format although there are some really creative ones I have seen.

 

The layout works best if you really have no idea of where to start from.

  • Greetings
  • Short self-introduction
  • Thank your guests and other personalities
  • Start your speech
  • Talk about your son
  • Talk about your daughter-in-law
  • Talk about the bride and groom
  • End with a bit of marriage advice or best wishes
  • End with a toast

Now, let’s take it one step at a time. Let’s first begin with the first idea:

 

Writing Idea#1: Greetings

This is a standard wedding etiquette and the easiest part of the speech to write. So, I won’t go into much detail at this time.

 

Writing Idea#2: Short-Self Introduction

Most fathers don’t do this due to the erroneous impression that the guests might know who they are. Even if you have been introduced by the emcee, you still should let everyone know who you are and your relationship to the bride and groom.

 

Here’s a brief example.

Hello everyone! I am Dan, Steve’s dad. I want to say that I’m very proud of him and Alice who I love like a daughter. They have put together a wonderful celebration today and rekindled our joy for living in these hard times. I want to thank them for bringing us together.

 

Writing Idea # 3: Thank your guests and other personalities

Simply thanking the guests for coming to celebrate with you endears you to your audience in many ways more than you can ever imagine. 

Your son has come thus far in life as a result of the contribution of family and friends and some other people. So it makes sense to show appreciation for being there for you over the years.

If you have a large family who played an immense role in your son’s life, then, you can jot down their names and express appreciation to them in whichever way you can.

 

Here’s an example by a father to his son’s mom for raising him when he wasn’t around.

 

Bernadette, I know it was hard being a single mom. I hoped that I was some help. Know that all of us look at you with awe and inspiration. You raised an amazing young man and you’ll forever be in my debts. Please let’s give her a round of applause for that.

 

Here’s an example by a father to his parents or son’s grandparents.

First and foremost, let me say a big thank you to my mother Mamaw for standing by me through the good times and bad. She was like a second mother to Steve and she did everything in her power to make life easier for me and reduce my stress during my tough times. She’s no longer with us but I know she’s looking down at us

and is so proud of who her grandson has become.

A special thanks go to my father Papaw who was and still is our handyman, our advisor, and my pillar or strength and our source of laughter. He and mom both provided Steve with great role-models and helped them grow up to be well-adjusted.

Can you write down the names of person you wish to thank? Just jot them down.

 

Writing idea #4:  Starting Your Speech

After you have expressed gratitude to family and friends, you have to start with some captivating remarks to break the ice.

You can start with one or more of the following ideas:

  • Start with a joke or a hilarious comment….Here’s an example

This beautiful couple have the world at their feet today, don’t they? Someone very wise once said, “Marriage is a partnership where each partner secretly believes that they got the better deal.” I can’t say which of you is correct in that, because both of you are quite the catch!

 

Four

 

  • If your son’s birthday coincides with his wedding day, then you may ask the wedding guests to sing a happy birthday song for him. However, you can personalize it a bit to make it more entertaining. Here’s an example to illustrate this point.

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

How old are you now?

How old are you now?

How old are you now?

Response by son:

I am so glad that you asked me that

But I am not going to tell you now because you didn’t bring me any birthday gift!

You came with your wedding gifts but not birthday gifts

Hmm….Thank you for the birthday song anyway

Well, If you want to know my age, just ask my dad because he’s the one who brought this up….else I won’t have told you because today is my wedding day.

 

Did you see I changed the lyrics here and there to suit the occasion? You can give it a try and practice it out loud with your son if he’s lucky to have his birthday and wedding date on a particular weekend. If you do it well, your message might go viral.

  • If you are an emotional person or want to start your speech with a quote about fatherhood or any other quote about marriage.
  • You may relive memories of when your son was born at the hospital if it has a fascinating twist to it. I remember working with a man who said he was so excited about his child’s arrival that he forgot where he’d parked his car when the announcer asked him to park well to make way for someone to move his car. Stories like that are always heartwarming and make great speeches what they are.
  • You can always start with a song if you are a gifted musician. This father of the groom certainly made all the difference at his son’s wedding.

 

 

  • You can decide to give joint parents of the groom speech by speaking in turns.

 

Now, let’s get to the next point.

 

Writing idea #5:  Talk about Your Son

There are so many things you can write about when you are weaving a story about your son. To make things a little bit easier, you should decide if you just want to talk about childhood, teenage years or adulthood.

Alternatively, you can choose one or more of his best character traits, build a story with them, and explain why those qualities will help him weather the storms of marriage.

How to write a father of the groom toast

Here’s an example about how to talk about your son

 

Steve was a happy child, curious but shy, always fun and loved parties even as a toddler!

He grew to be independent, but still loved parties especially the ones he threw herself! And concerts.”

 

He also persevered no matter the odds. You know he tried so hard before passing his driving test, right? While that may give you pause before letting him behind the wheel of your car, it should say that you would want him by your side if you need tenacity and undying faith to win the day!

When he first entered Uni, we were warned that he would get homesick and we should remain strong and not let him get to us. Yeah, well I failed at that test.  He had already made friends though, so they were taking stuff out of my car as fast as I was putting stuff in! But we did eventually get hIM packed and home. He re-entered another Uni the following semester, but again after a day he called to tell me that he’s going out with this girl.

Knowing who my son is, I doubted if he meant it. As the days went by, he kept talking about his friend and I got so curious. At that point, I knew this was getting serious. Lo and behold, his nameless friend came to visit and I could tell right away why he so much adored Stephanie.

 

Writing idea #6:  Write about Your Daughter-In-Law

To make sure your speech isn’t lopsided; you should talk briefly about your new daughter-in-law. You can write about how you felt when you first met her, the great qualities you think that will help make her an amazing wife and mom, and thank her parents for welcoming your son into their family.

 

Here’s an example to illustrate my points.

I’m sorry, I haven’t talked much about

Janet. But I will say this. I was absolutely

clueless when it came to my son’s love life.

I met her at “Remember the 27” at West

Chester. I thought she was lovely and

charming and – I swear – a good friend to Steve . Lynn had to tell me that my son was

in love with this girl. 

6

 

Writing idea #7:  Talk About The Bride and Groom

You can write about how the bride complements your son and why they are a perfect match for the journey of marriage.

 

Writing idea # 8:  End with A Bit of Marriage or Best Wishes

As the father of the groom, everyone will be counting on you to deliver some words of wisdom. If you have been married for a long time, you can tap into that reservoir of marriage wisdom and share your personal insights with the couple about what makes a good marriage.

Here’s an example to buttress this point.

 

Finally, as for advice, the only thing I can say is

never take each other for granted. Don’t hold

grudges, forget any disagreement quickly, but

never forget the good times. When you look at

your hand and see that ring, remember the

promise you made to get it. Happily ever after

starts now. And I hope you two have a blessed

and prosperous life together.

Wedding speech for my son and daughter-in-law

If that doesn’t work, you may end with your very best wishes.

P.S: Most dads do this...Have you considered it? Want to write and give a great wedding speech like the one above but can't seem to get started because you don't know the exact words to use?

Now, Let The Pros Help You With Your Farewell Speech...How? Just Scroll Down This Page (For Priest/Pastor)

 

Dear Brother/Sister-In- Christ,

 

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a Catholic and love my priest so much. When it came time for him to leave our parish, I cried like a baby because he really impacted my life and I saw him more like a father.

I bought him many gifts to see him off. But felt I need a very special gift that will outlive anything out there. Priests go through a lot and I thought why not come up with a very lovely farewell speech that he will keep going in good times and bad.

 

I am not great with words. So, I felt what I had written wasn't good enough.  Looking for help everywhere, I frantically landed on this page you are currently reading and it made all the difference. 

 

This Helped Me Out!

 

Initially, I was skeptical when Dan and his team said they could help give a great speech even if I hated speaking in public or short on time.

Well, I remembered the old age that says nothing ventured, nothing gained. So, I took a leap of faith when I found that I didn’t have to pay first to get my speech and that allayed my fears. I thought I had nothing to lose after all.

 

Quickly, I got started by first filling out this form. Dan and his team delivered as promised.    After the farewell service, Dan and his team asked me how I fared and this was what I transmitted to them. (Please you can double click on the image if you can't see it clearly)

Farewell speech 3

Giving a heartfelt speech is certainly different from a sermon. While a sermon exhorts, a send-off speech is more about you telling everyone how your priest's or pastor's tenure has been like.

Now, Let The Pros Help You With Your Farewell Speech...How? Just Scroll Down This Page (For Co-worker/Employee)

Dear Hardworking Employee,

I am  Cindy,

I love my employees (I call them my co-workers!). I got the shock of my life when my bosses said they were transferring me to another division of the company. After serving for so many years, I suspected that they might  throw a party in my honor. But they didn't tell me about it.

To avoid any kind of embarrassment, I decided to prepare a few remarks in case they asked me to speak. I put something together but I badly needed something inspiring because I felt I was not so great with words.

Besides, juggling work and family meant I had little time to spare. Looking for help everwhere, I frantically landed on this page you are currently reading and it made all the difference. 

This Helped Me Out!

Initially, I was skeptical when Dan and his team said they could help give a great speech even if I hated speaking in public or short on time.

Well, I remembered the old age that says nothing ventured, nothing gained. So, I took a leap of faith when I found that I didn’t have to pay first to get my speech and that allayed my fears. I thought I had nothing to lose after all.

Quickly, I got started by first filling out this form. Dan and his team delivered as promised.  I wanted my speech to be spontaneous and they got it right. 

After the party, Dan and his team asked me how I fared and this was the note I transmitted to them. (Please you can double click on the image if you can't see it clearly)

Farewell speech 2

Let’s face it. You can buy your boss or co-worker the coolest gift ever and he or she will be so happy with it.

But, when it comes to giving a gift that will last forever, you can't go wrong with words.

The right words are the best gift you can give your boss because they have the power to show appreciation and even help make your boss a much better person.

Unfortunately, many employees don’t put much thought into their farewell messages.

Not your speech is not your speech a perfect gift for your boss but it can also open doors for you and earn you the respect and admiration of your coworkers and other managers more than you can ever imagine.

Most employees don’t like to speak before a very small audience because it can be very intimidating when the founder, C.E.O, board of directors are present at the farewell party.

What that means is you have to give it your best shot!

We know for sure how hard coming up with the right words to help you say something sweet and memorable can be.

This is why we are giving you a rare chance to come up with something inspiring and funny without pulling your hair out!

I know you work in fundraising because your wish is to see that the world is a better place than it is now. However, in the fundraising world, money does make that dream a reality. 

 

But, let’s face it. One of the most difficult letters you'll ever write is a fundraising or charity letter because most folks hate it when they have to part with money. However, when we ask for cash and use it well for causes so dear to the hearts of donors, they are likely to give their cash and time to support your charity in good times and bad.

When you work with us to craft your fundraising or donation letter, we’ll collaborate to make sure your donors receive not just another letter, but a compelling one that moves the donor to give to your organization generously.

By clicking here to fill out this simple and short form, you are a step away from getting help with your letter.

Fundraising Letter or Speech: How to Write an Inspiring Fundraising Letter That Will Motivate Your Donors to Give Your Charity What It Really Deserves

Are you planning to write a fundraising letter or give a speech to raise funds for your charity?

But not too sure how to write a letter that will motivate your donor and prospective donors to readily open their wallets and give a generous amount that will sustain you in good times and bad times? 

Just give me a few minutes and I will share with you:

  • How to write a persuasive fundraising letter or speech asking for donations
  • How to use sample fundraising letters to write your script to collect donations

…….plus lots of great ideas and tips to help you ask for donation for your school, church, business or charity.

 

FUNDRAISING  sample 1

 

Before we start, let’s look at this short story about the power of giving. Afterwards, we are going to use the lesson learned to write an appeal letter to your donors.

Years ago, Ilene’s preacher noticed that a family standing in front of him at a New Orleans convenience store did not have enough money to pay for their few items.

Donation letter for charity

 He tapped the man on the shoulder and said, “You don’t need to turn around, but please accept this money.” The man took the money without ever seeing the preacher.

Nine years later, the pastor was invited to speak at a church in New Orleans. After the service, a man walked up to the preacher and shared this story about how he had come to faith in Christ: “Several years ago, my wife and our child were destitute. We had lost everything, had no jobs, no money and were living in our car.

 

We also lost all hope, and agreed to a suicide pact, including our child. However, we decided to first give our son some food, so we drove to a convenience store to buy him some food and milk.”

 

“While we were standing in line at the store, we realized that we did not have enough money to pay for these items, but a man behind us asked us to please take the money from his hand and not look at him. This man told us that ‘Jesus loves you.’”

 

“We left the store, drove to our designated suicide site, and wept for hours. We couldn’t go through with it, so we drove away. As we drove, we noticed a church with a sign out front which said, ‘Jesus loves you.’ We went to that church the very next Sunday, and both my wife and I were saved that day.”

 

He then told the pastor, “When you began speaking this morning, I knew immediately that you were the man who gave us that money.” How did he know? The pastor was from South Africa and had a very distinct accent. He continued, “Your act of kindness was much more than a simple good deed. Three people are alive today because of it.”

 

Have you or someone you know ever been touched by a genuine act of kindness? If you have, then you will agree with Ben Carson who said that happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.

 

We all have something to give, whether rich or poor. We can give sour time, energy, strength, and intellect in support of causes that’s so dear to our hearts. But, in the fundraising arena, money does grease the wheels of happiness.

 

We all love to have it but when it comes to giving it out, we can sometimes be a little stingy. Yet, we have to give our financial resources to support because we all need someone to lean on.

 

That brings me to this question: How do you convince your current donors and even skeptical ones to continuously contribute cash to keep your organization alive year after year.

 

It’s actually simple as there are some time-tested tips and tricks that can help you write a compelling fundraising letter or speech so you can raise enough funds for your charity. But, first and foremost, let’s consider a few things you should carefully consider before you pour your thoughts and emotions onto paper.

 

First, you need to consider if you are going to write an appeal letter to your contributors or a speech. If you have invited your supporters to an end of year giving program, then it’s best to make a fundraising charity speech. If you are thinking of doing that, then you can watch a few video clips to get you inspired.

 

This is what I want you to do right now. Go grab your paper and pen and jot down ideas you think you can incorporate into your speech or letter as you watch those clips.

 

Please note: The following videos are just for your creative and mental stimulation. If you want specific videos about your causes, you can niche down in the search box on video sharing platforms for the right stuff.

 

For example, if you need videos about fundraising for Alheimezer’s disease , you can look for videos about that subject. By the way, here are the two videos I promised to show you.

 

Fundraising speech example----video#1

 



Charity speech template or sample---video#2

 



Well, the approach is quite different if you want to send out a letter to your donors. Here are a few things you should ask yourself if you intend to write a letter.

  • What kind of letter do you wish to pen? An appeal letter asking for donations, re-activating lapsed donors, prospecting campaign, volunteers, or alerting your supporters about an emergency at your end ? Or what are you thinking about? Or a thank you letter? The list goes on
  • Who is going to receive your letter? Political donors? Church folks? Environmental activists? Etc..
  • Through what medium are you sending the letter? In a plain envelope? Via email? Or both?
  • If you are asking for money, what dollar amount are you expecting from your donors? A fixed amount or suggested figures in dollars or in your local currency?

 

Having figured out the purpose and intent of your letter, you must read some fundraising letter samples. You must go through a few of them because well-written examples can give you a fair of what to add and what not to include in your donation letter.

 

But you should tread with caution considering that the policy and mission of most organizations sets the tone for the letter. Nonetheless, you can still apply the underlying principles and tactics in a very convincing manner to spur on your donors.

 

In the next lines, I am going to share with you several donation or charity samples. Please study them carefully and take note of my comments below them so you can apply the lessons learned towards writing your own script no matter what kind of donation letter you have in mind.

 

 

Here you go

Fundraising speech example#1: Thank you for your donation letter

June 18th, 2017

 

Dear Rebecca,

We truly appreciate your thoughtful contribution of $50 to Toronto Cat Rescue in honor of Claire. As a volunteer-powered organization, we were able to save many lives each year because of supporters like you.

Donors work alongside foster parents and volunteers to facilitate successful adoptions. When someone adopts a cat into their forever home, it saves two lives-both the adoptee and the cat that will be rescued in his or her place. In July alone, we found forever homes for 188 cats. One of the cats we were then able to save in July was Holly.

Fundraising speech or letter

As most of us are well aware, Balconies pose a considerable threat to curious, height-seeking felines.  One such tragedy came to TCR’S attention last spring when a cat named Lolly was surrendered to Toronto Animal Services (TAS) because her owners were unable to afford her medical bills.  Poor Lolly feel a mind-boggling 15 stories:  breaking her front paw, dislocating her jaw and lacerating her leg.

With the help of a lot of caring people, such as yourself, our little miracle girl Lolly received  the surgeries she needed and was placed in a foster home to continue her recovery. With plenty of love, nutrition and cage rest, Lolly began eating on her own, gaining weight, and regaining her strength and vitality.

 

A couple months later. we are thrilled to share the news that Lolly’s foster home has made the decision to officially adopt her!  As she continues to recover comfortably in her forever home, we feel truly humbled by the support that this community has offered to Lolly and other cats just like her.

 

More recently, this commitment has demonstrated through the careful planning and construction of a new volunteer centre, which will provide an incredible facility to help maximize the amount of lives we can save.  We are grateful that so many generous souls have supported our cause. Thank you for helping us save precious lives.

 

Best wishes,

 

Brianne

TCR Online Donations Manager

FUNDRAISING sample 3

 

That’s an absolutely brilliant thank you letter…isn’t it? Now compare that example to this one:

 

Dear Donor ,

Thank you for your gift to the Do Trust. Your Donation helps protect Door County’s future. By contributing to Do Trust, you join the community of supporters who help protect and care for the land, shorelines and islands.

Member support is the single largest source of funding for the effort to protect Do’s exceptional lands and waters.

Thanks to members like you, Do Trust now protects more than 5,500 acres across our richly diverse peninsula and islands. In partnership with the Land Trust, you ensure places cherished by our community will be protected for generations to come.

Thank you

 

Imagine you are a donor and receive these two letters from organizations you are truly passionate about. You have $100 to give each charity. Which of these two will receive your most significant contribution? Pause and think twice about that!

Personally, I will give $80 to Toronto Rescue Cats and $20 to Do Trust. My reason for this gesture is probably as good as yours.

 

Most charitable firms want money but when it comes to asking for it and acknowledging receipt, the message falls flat. That’s unfortunately the case with the second letter.

 

When asking for money, what you say and how you say it will determine the amount of dollars you will receive. So, you have to ask well. To ask well, there are several principles that should be applied to get the needed funds from your donors. They are contained in those letters.

 

So, let’s get to work by analyzing both examples.

 

First, I suspect ‘’Do Trust ‘’don’t have a solid relationship with her donors or it could be that they have no idea what the names of their givers are? The best way of establishing a rapport with your supporters is to call them by their name. Need I say more? Whether in print or online, you should call them by their first names. That’s the first tip I have for you.

 

Tip#2: Start your opening lines with something that grabs attention. There are several ways to engage the reader. When you are writing a thank you fundraising letter, it makes a lot of sense to make a reference to the specific amount your supporter gave.

 

If you are sending your message to a regular contributor and you have a good donor database, then you can take time to find out the number of times and total amount you’ve received and thank him or her tremendously for it.

 

Can you imagine how touched the recipient will be if you can go to that extent? It shows that you are not only thoughtful but also grateful and value your donor like family. You better give it a try if you want to be the apple of the donor’s eye.

 

Let me digress here. Thank you donation letters should be personalized as much as possible. It’s quite common for such letters to be generated by a computer. There’s nothing wrong with that if you are sending out several letters to different recipients.

 

If it’s a small quantity, you should do all you can to write your note of gratitude in your own handwriting before you sign off the letter. It should be more like a personal letter from one friend to another. Nothing can beat that. Again, you should use your thank you note to create an immediate connection with your donors by sending out your letter as soon as you receive their gifts even if you have not begun work on what you said you will. 

 

I read a story where a kind man sent $100 to a hospice. That certainly didn’t look like a winning lottery ticket, but the development officer quickly picked his phone to talk to the guy. And guess what happened? They developed this likeness for each other’s personalities that the guy sent them another check for $25000!

 

You never know who can give you that much until you make an extra effort to write them or place a cal. Never say thank you by email in a bid to skimp on postage. Never, ever do that. It smacks of insensitiveness. Rather, a personal touch always win as nothing can compare to the joy of having a paper in your hand!

Fundraising letter examples

Now, let’s go on with our analysis by recapping parts of the letter above.

‘’… As most of us are well aware, Balconies pose a considerable threat to curious, height-seeking felines.  One such tragedy came to TCR’S attention last spring when a cat named Lolly was surrendered to Toronto Animal Services (TAS) because her owners were unable to afford her medical bills.  Poor Lolly feel a mind-boggling 15 stories:  breaking her front paw, dislocating her jaw and lacerating her leg.

With plenty of love, nutrition and cage rest, Lolly began eating on her own, gaining weight, and regaining her strength and vitality.

A couple months later. we are thrilled to share the news that Lolly’s foster home has made the decision to officially adopt her! … ‘’

 

That’s the storyline of the letter. What separates standard thank you notes from exceptional ones is how the fundraising writer builds a solid case for his message by laying out how the funds have been used. This can be illustrated practically with a story or even pictures or both of them. Both work best though and that’s how the writer did in that wonderful letter.

 

Below is another great example to raise funds for Covenant House

You’re going to have trouble believing this letter.

I mean, what I’m about to tell you is so strange and incredible, you’ll never forget it.

But please understand that

EVERY SINGLE WORD OF THIS STORY IS TRUE!!!

I’m really praying you’ll take a few minutes to read it.

Thank you.

Dear Friend

     She came to our front door Tuesday morning, dressed in dirty rags, holding a little aluminum paint can in her arms.

     From the second she stepped inside our shelter, she mystified us. Whatever she did, wherever she went, the paint can never left her hands.

 

     When Kathy sat in the crisis shelter, the can sat in her arms.  She took the can with her to the cafeteria that first morning she ate, and to bed with her that first night she slept.

     When she stepped into the shower, the can was only a few feet away.  When the tiny homeless girl dressed, the can rested alongside her feet.

 

     “I’m sorry, this is mine,” she told our counselors, whenever we asked her about it.  “This can belongs to me.”

     “Do you want to tell me what’s in it, Kathy?” I’d ask her? “Um, not today,” she said  “not today.”

     When Kathy was sad, or angry or hurt -- which happened a lot -- she took her paint can to a quiet dorm room on the 3rd floor.  Many times on Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday, I’d pass by her room, and watch her rock gently back and forth, the can in her arms.  Sometimes she’d talk to the paint can in low whispers.

 

     I’ve been around troubled kids all my life, (over 41,000 homeless kids will come to our shelters this year!).  I’m used to seeing them carry stuffed animals (some of the roughest, toughest kids at Covenant House have a stuffed animal).  Every kid has something -- needs something -- to hold.

     But a paint can? I could feel alarm bells ringing in my head.

    

Early this morning, I decided to “accidentally” run into her again.  “Would you like to join me for breakfast?” I said.  “That would be great,” she said.

     For a few minutes we sat in a corner of our cafeteria, talking quietly over the din of 150 ravenous homeless kids.  Then I took a deep breath, and plunged into it....

     “Kathy, that’s a really nice can.  What’s in it?”

     For a long time, Kathy didn’t answer.  She rocked back and forth, her hair swaying across her shoulders.  Then she looked over at me, tears in her eyes.

     “It’s my mother,” she said.

     “Oh,” I said.  “What do you mean it’s your mother?” I asked.

     “It’s my mother’s ashes,” she said.

 

     “I went and got them from the funeral home.  See, I even asked them to put a label right here on the side. It has her name on it.”

     Kathy held the can up before my eyes.  A little label on the side chronicled all that remained of her mother: date of birth, date of death, name.  That was it.  Then Kathy pulled the can close, and hugged it.

 

     “I never really knew my mother, Sister,” Kathy told me.  “I mean, she threw me in the garbage two days after I was born.” (We checked Kathy’s story. Sure enough the year Kathy was born, the New York newspapers ran a story, saying that the police had found a little infant girl in a dumpster ... and yes, it was two days after Kathy was born.)

 

     “I ended up living in a lot of foster homes, mad at my mother,” Kathy said.  “But then, I decided I was going to try to find her.  I got lucky -- someone knew where she was living. I went to her house.”

     “She wasn’t there, Sister,” she said.  “My mother was in the hospital.  She had AIDS.  She was dying.

 

     “I went to the hospital, and I got to meet her the day before she died.  My mother told me she loved me, Sister,” Kathy said crying.  “She told me she loved me.”  (We double-checked Kathy's story ... every word of it was true.

     I reached out and hugged Kathy, and she cried in my arms for a long, long time.  It was tough getting my arms around her, because she just wouldn’t put the paint can down.  But she didn’t seem to mind.  I know I didn’t...

How to write a charity event letter

     I saw Kathy again, a couple hours ago, eating dinner in our cafeteria.  She made a point to come up and say hi. I made a point to give her an extra hug....

     I’ve felt like crying tonight.  I can’t seem to stop feeling this way.  I guess this story -- the whole horrible, sad, unreal mess -- has gotten to me tonight.

     I guess that’s why I just had to write you this letter.

     Please -- I know you and I have never met before.  But I need to ask you something very important, and I’m praying you’ll consider it, if you can.

     Do you think you could help Kathy ... and our other kids at Covenant House?  Please?

    

There’s one very important thing you need to know about Covenant House and our kids and it is this -- A DONATION TO COVENANT HOUSE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST WAY YOU CAN HELP THE TERRIFIED AND HELPLESS HOMELESS KIDS ON OUR STREETS!

     This year more than 41,000 homeless kids ... kids who are 12, 16, 17 years old ... will come to our doors.

    

We’ll give these kids food, and a safe bed to sleep in (the streets are incredibly dangerous!) and medicine, and counseling if they need it (most kids do).

     But most of all, we’ll give these kids love.  For thousands of these kids, the love we give them tonight will be the first love they’ve ever known!

     We are here for kids like Kathy 24 hours a day, in 9 cities across America, 365 days a year.  No kid -- no kid! -- is ever turned away ever!

    

Thanks to the love and help of thousands of caring people -- people just like you -- Covenant House spends MORE than the entire federal government to help these kids.  (That’s what I meant when I said that giving to us is THE best way to help these kids.)

     But so much more needs to be done.  And we can’t do it alone.

     Do you think maybe you could help?  Please?  Any donation you can send -- $15, $25, $50 -- any amount, will be a godsend to our kids.  Please do it today if you can.

    

Please.

     I want to assure you of one very important thing.  We’re going to do all we can to help Kathy, to let her know she is loved.  And I know, with your help, we are going to reach Kathy, and help her in a way no one has ever done before. You have my promise on that....

     And when we do reach her, it will be because of you.  It will be because people like you haven’t stopped caring, and haven’t stopped loving.  Yes, it will be possible because of you. It will be possible because of you.

     Thanks so much for reading this long letter.  And please, pray for us if you can.  Your prayers really help a lot.

                In God’s love,

           /signed  Sister Mary Rose, President

P.S.  Our financial need is really urgent right now.  Please help, if you can.  (Thanks for caring....)

 

FUNDRAISING  sample 4

 

This is a stellar example and you can just study it and apply the insights from it. And boom, you will have a winner. Here are a few take aways.

  • This letter is really personalized…Here it is ‘’ Dear Friend’’

 

  • It starts with a curious story: ‘’She came to our front door Tuesday morning…’’ The reader might be wondering who this person is? Good stories always win hearts…Never, ever forget that.

 

  • The story is quite emotional. Where appropriate, you should drip your pieces of touches of sentimentality. Stay away from it if it’s not appropriate for your piece or your letter will fail to make the desired impression.

 

  • The letter espouses the impact of the work they do. See this:

‘’ This year more than 41,000 homeless kids ... kids who are 12, 16, 17 years old ... will come to our doors.

     We’ll give these kids food, and a safe bed to sleep in (the streets are incredibly dangerous!) and medicine, and counseling if they need it (most kids do).’’

 

Sadly, most charities just mention what they do without bringing to light the impact of their work. The duty of the writer is to always show and not tell.

  • Ask and it shall be given. In some instances, you need to ask for specific amounts and not leave it to chance. Here’s an example

‘’Do you think maybe you could help?  Please?  Any donation you can send -- $15, $25, $50 -- any amount, will be a godsend to our kids.  Please do it today if you can.’’

  • Give the reader a reason to act now. For example, this is how I would say IF i want to convey a sense of urgency.

 

We have never done this before. But I just wanted to let you know that if we don’t receive your donation within 60 days, the home will be flooded. Last week, the meteorologist predicted that there will be torrential rains in the next 60 days. And we have to act before that time else we will have ourselves to blame.

 

Ok…Let’s move onto the third fundraising letter sample: a letter to raise funds for desmoid tumor.

 

Dear family and friends: As most of you are aware, _________ was recently diagnosed with a desmoid tumor.

This is a rare disease which has had little research attention and for which there are few existing treatments that are only sporadically effective.

Instead of just sitting back and accepting this situation, I have decided to try to make a difference. I am working to raise money for The Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation* which is currently funding groundbreaking desmoid tumor research at top cancer research institutions. For details, see www.dtrf.org.

 

These studies promise to provide critical information relating to the causes and treatment of desmoid tumors. We are now raising funds to keep these and other important research projects moving forward. Discoveries made through desmoid tumor research can also potentially be applied to other cancers such as breast, colon, ovarian and other sarcoma cancers.

 

The diagnosis of desmoid tumor is traumatic as you realize that it can be life-threatening, but because it is so rare and under-researched, there is little known about its causes or treatments. We are thrilled that DTRF is now getting the medical community to focus significant research efforts for a cure.

 

Every donation, whether large or small, will make a difference! We extend our heartfelt appreciation for any support you can give in the quest for a cure!

 

Donations can be made by sending a check made out to The Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, Inc. to me in the enclosed self-addressed envelope (or, if you send this letter by email, say "to me at such and such address"). Donations can also be made at dtrf.org online.

 

Thank you so much in advance for your generosity! Sincerely, [your name here] * The Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit tax-exempt Section 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation is fully deductible to the extent allowed by law. Details on the foundation can be found atwww.dtrf.org .

 

FUNDRAISING  sample 2 (1)

 

I am not going to break this down for you. I have already shared with you tips and ideas that can get you the dollars from the donors.

Let’s use this example to warm up our brains by rewriting it making use of the strategies outline above. Can you do that? Just give it a try.

How to write fundraising letter

Let’s face it. One of the most difficult letters you'll ever write is a fundraising or charity letter because most folks hate it when they have to part with money. However, when we ask for cash and use it well for causes so dear to the hearts of donors, they are likely to give their cash and time to support your charity in good times and bad.

Over the years, psychologists have found that donors are moved not by what they read or hear per se. But when certain psychological triggers are applied to your message, donors are moved to support your cause even if the economy is not so great.

When you work with us to craft your fundraising or donation letter, we’ll collaborate to make sure your donors receive not just another letter, but a compelling one that moves the donor to give to your organization generously.

By clicking here to fill out this simple and short form, you are a step away from getting help with your letter.

After you’ve filled it out, we will get in touch with you so we can take it from there and work together to create a truly irresistible donor-centered letter that will make you smiling the entire bank.

CEO Speech Writing Assistance or CEO Speech Writer (Now Let The Pros Help You With Your Speech...How? Just Scroll Down This Page)

 

Dear CEO or Director,

 

I am  Beth,

I love my employees (I call them my co-workers!). Towards Christmas last year, I wanted to delight them and show my appreciation for their drive and dedication.

 

After considering several options, we organized an end of year party and I felt the most endearing way to show how much I love and care about them was to deliver a good speech highlighting what we've achieved together and thank them for their help and support.

 

But, juggling work and family meant I had little time to spare. Besides, finding the right words was like pulling out a child’s tooth.  Looking for help everwhere, I frantically landed on this page you are currently reading and it made all the difference. 

 

This Helped Me Out!

 

Initially, I was skeptical when Dan and his team said they could help give a great speech even if I hated speaking in public or short on time. Well, I remember the old age nothing ventured, nothing gained. So, I took a leap of faith when I found that I didn’t have to pay first to get my speech and that allayed my fears. I thought I had nothing to lose after all.

 

Quickly, I got started by first filling out this form. Dan and his team delivered as promised. 

Below is the note I sent to Dan after he'd transmitted my speech. (Please you can double click on the image if you can't see it clearly)

 

Ceo speech to employees samples

 

On D-day I delivered my CEO speech and my team thanked me profusely for recognizing their efforts.

Now, let’s face it. Being CEO is one of the most stressful jobs on earth. So, you shouldn’t stress out about putting together a great speech which in itself can make you lose your sanity and create an extra burden on your shoulders.

 

We know most CEO’S are not great with words and  we are giving you a chance to come up with something inspiring and memorable without pulling your hair out!

CEO Keynote Speech: How To Write A Great Keynote Speech Like A Pro

Are you the president, CEO, director, or manager of your organization? And are you looking for tips and ideas to help you write and deliver a memorable and inspiring keynote speaker?

 

If you answered yes to that, then you are at the right place at the right time because I am going to share with you everything you need to know about writing a great keynote address.

 

CEO 1

 

So, please stay tuned. 

 

Imagine turning on your email to see a message from a renowned organization asking you to give a keynote address at their annual convention! They have chosen you because of your experience and expertise in your chosen field or career.

 

You most likely would be excited to read that note or letter. But your excitement can soon fizzle out when you suddenly realize that you are new to this game. Will you give in or try to make this work? Hence, solidifying your reputation.

 

That happened to Alina when she moved with her family from Ukraine to settle in the US twenty (20) years ago. As new immigrants, life was a bed of thorns for her family. But she worked hard to earn a name for herself in the automobile industry that her accomplishments and novel ideas were legendary.

 

Once, she was asked to deliver some brief remarks to the Ukrainian community in Denver and this kept her up at night until she’d delivered her CEO keynote address despite the odds. 

 

You see, an overwhelming majority of CEO’s and other bosses often find themselves in Alina’s shoes and even wonder how best they can deliver their keynote presentations with purpose and clarity when they are asked to deliver one.

 

Ceo keynote speech examples and samples

 

No matter how you feel about this, this task should be a very proud moment. It shows you are loved, respected and admired for what you do. 

 

In effect, your audience is waiting to hear your story from you.  A simple yet profound story about how you made it so they can apply the lessons learned to their own enterprises. However, your content should go in tandem with your presentation skills so you can motivate and inspire them to put those ideas into practical use.

 

Just like any other kind of speech, there are a few steps or process to follow if you want to write a great CEO keynote speech without breaking into a sweat. There are actually four processes involved here if you want to make this work for you. They include:

  • The pre-writing process
  • The writing process
  • The pre-performance process
  • The performance stage

 

Now, let’s start with the pre-writing process.

 

If you have never delivered a keynote speech before or it's been a while since you gave one, then I recommend that you first watch a few video clips about how they are delivered.  Below are two great clips you can watch and learn from.

 

Here you go:

 

Keynote Speech Video Sample#1(video)

 

 

Keynote Speech Video Example#2(video)

 

 

I hope you enjoyed listening to both clips and learned a thing or two from watching them?

 

Have you thought about this one too?

 

You see, video clips are not the only thing that can give you an idea about how to deliver your presentation.  Guess what? Well-written CEO keynote speech templates or samples do not only give you the structure and format of your message but also furnish you with brilliant ideas and thoughts you can insert in into your speech.

 

In the next few lines, I am going to share with you a well-written keynote example. In between in the text, I will share my thoughts and insights, so you can figure out what goes into writing a memorable CEO keynote address and do the same.

 

Here you go: 

CEO Keynote Speech- Example #1

Keynote Address at the RSA Conference 2017 “The Need for a Digital Geneva Convention” Brad Smith President Microsoft Corporation San Francisco, California February 14, 2017

 

BRAD SMITH: Good morning. As we’ve already heard this morning, we come together in San Francisco at a remarkable time. We live in a world of constant and at times turbulent change. And when we think about the issues that we're here to talk about this week, when we think about cybersecurity, we are clearly dealing with a growing problem – a problem in need of new solutions. I would like to take a few minutes this morning to ground ourselves in the problem and then talk together about some of the solutions I believe we have the opportunity to pursue together.

 

But let's start with the problems. The problems are clear. We see them everywhere. We see them in the customers who are worrying about being hacked. We see this in the data about the economic loss that will be suffered. But more than anything, if you think about what has happened over the past year, if you think about the changes in cyber-attacks, I think we should come together and reflect on one thing, one thing that has clearly made the situation even more challenging – that is the entry of more nation-state attacks. We've seen cyberattacks move from enthusiasts to financial thieves to now governments around the world. And think about the decade we are traversing. The decade began with a report about a prominent nationstate attack. We've seen these issues burst into the news in terms of geopolitical controversies.

 

Comment/Writing ideas: Most writers or speakers or even experienced keynote speakers always recommend that you begin your keynote with something interesting and that’s so true. It could be a joke or a story or a fascinating statistic to kick start your presentation.

 

But this speaker did otherwise by sharing the challenges the industry is facing. He calls it ''we are clearly dealing with a growing problem.'' Clearly this writer didn’t have the time and patience to entertain his audience. That critical moment demanded that he speaks to the facts because of  an imminent threat.

 

As you may know, your opening remarks set the tone for everything that follows. To make your introduction unique, it should be engaging and inspiring. Are you wondering how you to make a moving one that will make the audience remember what you said for a long time to come?

CEO 2

It’s so easy and I am happy to share with you the following proven tips and ideas so you can hook your audience with a great opener.

 

First, you can start with an all-time favorite: storytelling. You love stories, right? The former ‘’CEO’’ of America used stories to open his keynote speech at the 2004 DNC Convention keynote speech and his listeners loved every bit of it.

 

Here’s an excerpt of his introductory remarks that galvanized the delegates to eventually elect him flag bearer.

 

‘’Tonight is a particular honor for me because, let's face it; my presence on this stage is pretty unlikely. My father was a foreign student, born and raised in a small village in Kenya. He grew up herding goats, went to school in a tin-roof shack. His father, my grandfather, was a cook, a domestic servant.

But my grandfather had larger dreams for his son. Through hard work and perseverance my father got a scholarship to study in a magical place; America which stood as a beacon of freedom and opportunity to so many who had come before. While studying here, my father met my mother. She was born in a town on the other side of the world, in Kansas. Her father worked on oil rigs and farms through most of the Depression. The day after Pearl Harbor he signed up for duty, joined Patton's army and marched across Europe…’’

 

Second, you can start with a joke. A good one can lighten a particularly tensed atmosphere. This keynote speaker did that so well at a leadership summit and succeeded in bringing the house down.

 

 

Well, there are simple ways of introducing humor into your presentation even if you are not a naturally funny person. You may tease someone or add a little bit of self-deprecating humor. For example, when Mark Zuckerberg gave his annual keynote speech after appearing before congress to discuss data privacy issues, he poked fun at himself by saying:

 

‘’ Now you're gonna be able to bring your friends together. You can laugh together, and cry together. Some of my friends actually did this! Let's not do that again anytime soon ‘’

 

Well, here are some really cool ways of making your opening remarks humorous.

  • Depending on the theme of your CEO keynote address, you can come on stage in a rather weird way by dressing like a comedian. Then, you can explain why you had to dress that way to such an important function. You may take it off when you get to the crux of your story.

 

  • If you can’t do that, you may probably share a funny story you’ve ever heard if it has some connection to the theme of your keynote speech.Here’s an excellent video example you can watch and learn from by the eloquent customer service manager Mark Sanborn to make your opening address hilarious.

 

 

  • To make your story interesting, you can bring a few props up there and explain why you had to bring them along. Do you remember when Bill Gates released a harmless swarm of mosquitoes to make a point at a TED conference in 2009?


 

  • If you don’t have anything to say, you can mention a well-known fact that keeps you up at night. For example, if your industry is experiencing a major setback, you can dive right into that briefly and explain why it gives you insomnia. Let me ask you this simple question: What are you most worried about? Use that to come up with your opening remarks. 

 

 

Writing tip/homework assignment: Please go back and read the above ideas and see which technique you want to start your CEO keynote speech with. Can you do that? 

 

 

Ok….we are not done yet…Let’s move on to the body of the example we are currently reviewing. 

 

Cyber attacks move from enthusiasts to financial thieves to now governments around the world. And think about the decade we are traversing. The decade began with a report about a prominent nationstate attack. We've seen these issues burst into the news in terms of geopolitical controversies.

 

The Sony attack, I believe, in many ways was a turning point. Here was a nation-state attack not for espionage, not related to the military, but to attack a private company for engaging in freedom of expression around, as it turned out, not a terribly popular movie. (Laughter.) But it got our attention. And in the two and a half years since, we've seen these issues evolve even further.

 

Let's face it, cyberspace is the new battlefield. The world of potential war has migrated from land to sea to air and now cyberspace. But cyberspace is a different kind of space. Not only can we not find it in the physical world, but cyberspace is us.

How to write a keynote speech

For all of us in this room, it is us. Cyberspace is owned and operated by the private sector. It is private property, whether it's submarine cables or datacenters or servers or laptops or smartphones. It is a different kind of battlefield than the world has seen before.

 

And that puts us in a different position. It puts you in a different position, because when it comes to these attacks in cyberspace, we not only are the plane of battle, we are the world's first responders. Instead of nation-state attacks being met by responses from other nationstates, they are being met by us.

 

And as we think about that change in the world, we should reflect upon one other as well. It's a sobering thing to think about, but consider this: For over two-thirds of a century, the world's governments have been committed to protecting civilians in times of war. But when it comes to cyberattacks, nation-state hacking has evolved into attacks on civilians in times of peace.

 

This is not the world that the internet's inventors envisioned a quarter of a century ago, but it is the world that we inhabit today. And above all else, I think nation-state attacks call on us as employees, as an industry, as private citizens to ask ourselves one fundamental question: What are we going to do? I think there's three things that we should consider, and I'd like to talk about each of these three this morning.

 

The first is to start with what each of us has the opportunity to do ourselves, because everybody in this room and every company that is here is doing new and important things. We have all recognized that we each need to do more.

At Microsoft, we're doing many things. In many ways, it starts with an obvious reflection. Just a few minutes ago, before I came on stage, somebody here in the audience tweeted that every company has at least one employee that will click on anything. (Laughter.) That's why 90 percent of intrusions begin, unfortunately, with a phishing email. That's why we as a company, as one of the major email providers in the world, are so focused on strengthening email protection.

 

Whether it was last year through our Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection that scans email, spots malware and destroys them before they can do damage … or the addition of our Advanced Threat Intelligence that informs enterprises of the nature of attacks and the people who are being attacked and makes recommendations….

 

Or the announcement that we made last week about advanced data governance tools, tools that include alerts that let enterprise administrators and others know when someone is trying to download an email inbox. But I think we've all learned over the last couple of years that our single biggest advance in fighting all forms of cybercrime is probably not features, as important as they are, but instead, our ability to harness the power of data.

As a company, our datacenters are connected to over a billion end points. We get over a trillion data points each and every day. Our Advanced Threat Protection and our email scans 200 billion emails a month for malware. All of that data is the game-changing defense mechanism in our ability to combat this problem.

 

At Microsoft, we've built three groups and we've brought them together in what I think is a pretty unique partnership. It relies in the first instance on our Threat Intelligence Center, our reconnaissance arm, our people who are reviewing the data that is coming in from our 200 different cloud services.

 

When they spot a problem, they hand it off to our Cyber Defense Operations Center so they can go to work not only to protect our own services, but customers as well. And they, in turn, work with our Digital Crimes Unit so we can innovate in legal processes to take action. Starting last summer, we began to see new nation-state attacks that were aimed at creating fake domains, getting people through phishing attacks to click on them, and then using them, as we often see in these circumstances, to use malware to extract email from customers.

 

We innovated, we went to court, we got a new form of court order so that domain could be transferred to us and the data that was coming back from customers that were infected would go not to the attacker, but to sink holes that we created. Using this approach, we've been able to address nation-state attacks and transfer 60 domains on six continents, letting the customers know that they were the victim of a nation-state attack and helping them clean up their system. That's a step forward.

 

But more than that, I think we all need to recognize the obvious. We are far away from declaring victory.We are going to need to do more and we are going to need to do more together if we are going to address this problem effectively.

 

We need to recognize that the time has come for us to come together as an industry around the world to call on the world's governments. We need to call on the world's governments to come together. They came together in 1949 in Geneva, Switzerland, and that is what led to the recognition that they needed the Fourth Geneva Convention to protect civilians in times of war.

 

Now is the time for us to call on governments to protect civilians on the internet in times of peace. And there is progress on which we can build. Just two years ago, in the summer of 2015, experts from 20 nations came together and put forward a new set of norms, principles that governments could consider. It represented a big step forward in terms of international agreement.

 

 

And more encouraging in many ways still was what happened a few months later when the United States and China sat down across the negotiating table, talked directly and frankly about an issue that was important to both of them, and came up with a new pledge and plan to put the cybertheft of intellectual property out of bounds. That was then endorsed by the G20 two months after that. Let's face the obvious.

 

There are new issues that we need governments to come together and address in 2017. There is an opportunity for a new president in the United States to sit across the table with the president from Russia and take another step forward to address the attacks that concern the world. And we then need to build on that with a global convention.

 

What we need now is a Digital Geneva Convention. We need a convention that will call on the world's governments to pledge that they will not engage in cyberattacks on the private sector, that they will not target civilian infrastructure, whether it's of the electrical or the economic or the political variety.

Ceo keynote speech

 

We need governments to pledge that, instead, they will work with the private sector to respond to vulnerabilities, that they will not stockpile vulnerabilities, and they will take additional measures.

 

Comments/Writing ideas: As you are pretty much aware, the body of any keynote speech is fairly easy to write. But most folks struggle to jot down ideas to form a very interesting story because it’s not so easy to bring together your scattered thoughts and emotions to form a very meaningful piece.

 

To make the presentation of your ideas very fluid, you should first know something your audience. This will help you define and refine the content of your message.

 

For your message to be compelling, it should be laden with practical tips that will compel your listener to closely examine his or her work in the light of your message. With a view towards making the needed improvements.

 

It shouldn’t be hard to come up with some action-packed ideas for the body or outline of your speech if you provide answers to these simple questions and use them to formulate the content of your speech. 

  1. Who are you going to talk to?
  2. What’s the theme of your message?
  3. Are you going to use any props?
  4. Are you going to work with slides or incorporate other multimedia?
  5. Are you going to weave in anything musical like playing guitar or adding any song to the mix?
  6. Does your presentation involve tons of data or any research work about the topic you are writing about?
  7. Do you want to throw in a few stories to support the theme of your message? What are those stories?


Action Tip:
Please go back to the points above and write down as many points you can remember about what you are going to speak about.
Then, try to connect your thoughts together to form a logical presentation. You may call that a rough draft. Don’t worry about how it flows because you can always go back to edit your keynote script.

 

We are not done yet. Let’s continue with this by looking at how to write the conclusion. Please study it carefully.

And, perhaps as much as anything else, we need governments to take a page out of the 1949 Geneva Convention and other instruments that have followed.

 

What the world needs is a new independent organization, a bit like the International Atomic Energy Agency that has addressed nuclear nonproliferation for decades. We need an agency that brings together the best and the brightest in the private sector, the best and the brightest in academia and the public sector.

 

We need an agency that has the international credibility not only to observe what's happening, but to call the question and even identify the attackers when nation-state attacks happen. That is the only way that governments will come to recognize that this is not a program that will continue to pay off. That is all in the area of steps we need governments to take.

 

But there's a third are we should touch upon as well. It also calls on us. It's great that we do so many things alone. We now need to do more together. If you look back at what happened in 1949, the world's governments realized that they could not protect civilians in times of war without a private organization – the International Committee of the Red Cross.

While we don't have the same kind of organization, we have within these walls many people from many organizations.

 

And as a global technology sector, we need to come together as the ICRC did in 1949. We need to sign our own pledge in conjunction with the world's states. We need to pledge that we will protect customers, that we will focus on defense. We need to be concrete in showing and pledging how we will collaborate with each other to respond to attacks. That we will provide patches to all customers everywhere, regardless of the attacks that they face. That we will do our part to address the world's needs.

In effective, even in an age of rising nationalism, we as a global technology sector need to become a trusted and neutral Digital Switzerland. We need to be a global industry that the world can rely on to play 100 percent defense and zero percent offense.

 

 

We need to make clear that there are certain principles for which we stand. We need to be clear that we will assist and protect customers everywhere. That is what we do regardless of the country from which we come. We need to be clear that we will not aid in attacking customers anywhere, regardless of the government that may ask us to do so.

 

These two principles have been at the heart and soul of what we've been doing at our company, at your company, and across the industry. We need to stay on that path. We need to make the case to the world that the world needs to retain its trust in technology. We need to retain the world's trust.

 

And regardless of a government's politics or policies or individual issues at any moment in time, we need to persuade every government that it needs a national and global IT infrastructure that it can trust. And the only way it can have that is if it knows that our industry is focused on protecting everyone everywhere, and 14 attacking or assisting in attacking no one, anywhere, at any time.

As we think about all of these things, I think there's a lot on which we can build. Because the truth of the matter is even though we work in a hypercompetitive and fast changing industry, I would say that our industry has never been more united. It is coming together to address new and challenging issues, whether it's the questions around artificial intelligence that the world is increasingly talking about.

 

We're not just working together in new and important ways, we are learning from each other. I think a sense of humility is a positive force that can affect and help us all.

 

Certainly at Microsoft, we've appreciated the leadership that Google and Facebook first took with respect to nation-state attacks. And we quite obviously, adopted what was working for them because we believed it would work for everyone. And as we think about the opportunities that we have to work together, as we think about our role in the world today, just as we came together last year at an important moment in time when everyone was focused on the Apple case, there is an obvious issue that is uniting our industry today that I think has some relevance as well.

CEO 3

As the country and the world talk about immigration, they look at the technology sector. And they recognize that as an industry, we in many ways have brought the world together.

We bring the world together through our technology and our products and the connections that we forge with people across borders every day.

 

But it's more than that. We almost uniquely have brought the world together under our own roofs. At Microsoft in Washington State where I work, a high majority of our employees were born and grew up in the United States. But we also have employees from 157 countries. Every day, when I park my car and I walk into the office, I sometimes reflect upon the fact that I feel that I work at the United Nations of information technology.

 

And our company is not unique. Every company in our industry is like that. We have brought the world together. And it has put us in a position to forge perhaps almost a unique level of mutual understanding and respect for the needs of people around the planet. As we think about protecting the planet, as we think about addressing nation-state attacks, that is a powerful force that should inspire us, and on which we can build.

Let's use that inspiration. Let's use what we have learned. Let's build on what we can share with each other. And let's go forward and show the world that it needs us to be what we can be when we're at our best – an industry that can serve the world.

 

An industry that earns everyone's trust every day. An industry that even in an age of nationalism, is a neutral Digital Switzerland on which everyone can depend and rely. Thank you very much. (Applause.) END

 

Comments/Take home ideas: Your conclusion serves two purposes primarily.

First, to summarize everything you’ve said or end with a note that propels your listeners to take positive action or even come up with new solutions and ideas to their own unique problems.  Here are a few ways of wrapping up on strong note.

 

First, you can end with a note of encouragement. I particularly liked how Alibaba Founder Jack Ma concluded his keynote speech when he addressed his audience at Alibaba’s Gateway’ 17 in Canada. These were his parting words.

‘’ I want to encourage everyone here that using the internet. Do business with China. And whether you do business through Alibaba or Ebay or Amazon or whatever, that’s okay. This is the skill every small business must have. And if you want to open a huge market, China is the market. If you can’t find your customer from 1.4 billion people, then you really have a big problem. ‘’

 

Second, you can end by asking your audience to support each other to achieve a common goal. President Obama did that with his concluding remarks at that same convention when he said that: 

 

‘’ America, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won't promise that now. Yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. Yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together.  We don't turn back. We leave no one behind. We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories.

And we learn from our mistakes. But we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon knowing that providence is with us and that we are surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on earth. Thank you, God bless you and God bless these United States.’’

 

Third, you can restate the key points of your speech towards the end or how your company is thriving in the midst of challenges. Orica CEO, Alberto Calderon stated this clearly when he addressed the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia.

 

‘’ We are continuing to control all the elements we can. We are transforming Orica into a leaner, more efficient organization. Efficiencies are being embedded in the business to counteract the cyclical declines in volumes and prices that our industry has experienced.

We have worked hard to ensure that as an organization, we adapt to changing circumstances and shape our destiny over the years. Moreover, we are actively building a culture that supports our people, and that ensures that we work collaboratively with each other and with our customers, to create recognized value for us and them. We are deeply committed to our customers being at the forefront of everything we do, while understanding our value to them is in the assurance of consistently safe, reliable and quality products and services. Thank you.’’

Are you looking for ideas and tips to help you write an inspiring fundraising letter that will forge a strong relationship with corporate donors and get you cash and other incentives for your charity organization?

 

FUNDRAISING  sample 1

 

Please read on to find out why.

 

You will agree with me that one of the most difficult things to do is to raise enough funds for your charity. You have to send out several letters and hope that you get some positive response from your donors which doesn’t always happen. Good for you if your response rate is always off the roof!

How to write corporate fundraising letter or speech

 

But, you know that’s only a pipe dream. When it comes to asking for cash and other kind of support from corporate organizations, that can be an uphill task because there are so many process involved in this arena.

 

 

In the next few lines, I am going to share with you some proven ideas and tips to help you write your own script. Before we get into that, there are few things you should consider before you write your letter.

 

Well, if you are raising funds for a corporate sponsorship annual dinner, you might want to know how to deliver a speech since a letter will not work in this regard.

 

If you have never done that before, then I suggest you look up a few examples on Youtube.com and other video sharing platforms. By the way, here are two great ones, you can watch and learn from.

 

Fundraising speech example #1---video

 

 

Fundraising speech example #2---video

 

 

 

Most fundraisers don’t know this, but well-written examples can furnish you with great ideas that can easily help you to write your message. Below are two great examples. Please read through them carefully. In between them, I will share my thoughts with you so you can figure out what goes into writing a corporate fundraising letter.

 

Here you go:

Fundraising letter for corporate organizations---example#1

 

Here's an example of a sponsorship letter for an event:

 

Dear Beth,

 

Comment: One of the cardinal  rules of  direct mail fundraising is to start the letter by adding the name of the recipient to the salutation.When in doubt, call up the organization and ask for the name of the right person. If they won’t pass it on to you for obvious reasons, you can simply start with other alternatives like:

  • Dear friend
  • Dear Sir
  • Dear Madam

 

Comment: You should avoid this terrible combination: ''Dear Sir/Madam'' since it shows that you didn’t go all out to find out who the gender of this person is, to say the least.

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''I hope you're well. My name is Bruce, and I'm the director of development at Small Steps for Change. Our nonprofit organization is on a mission to advocate for youth education by taking small steps towards big change. Our annual 5K is quickly approaching, and we're looking for potential sponsors to help make the event a reality.''

 

Comment: I suspect that the  company  that the letter was sent to doesn’t have a working relationship with this charity. Why? Because he began with a brief introduction of who he was and his role at the charity firm.

 

That’s a nice way of building rapport with an organization you are trying to woo for the first time. If you have a strong relationship with them, it’’s not too necessary to do that.

 

If you go back to read the above extract, you will realize that it states the aim of the corporation. Well, if you know them like the back of your mind, then you can simply state the purpose of this letter.  

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''We believe that your company aligns with our mission since you work hard to provide an accurate curriculum for elementary schools in our region.''

 

Corporate fundraising letter examples

 

Comment: Most companies are like women. They respond best to flatteries.If you want to strike a chord with the firm you are looking for donations from is to state specific ways your mission aligns with their theirs.

 

Hint: Do a thorough research of your potential donor and find out what you share in common with theirs and start with it or other ways their mission lines up with yours. You may also compliment them on a recent accomplishment or accolade and they will be happy to read on. That’s not all you can start with a heart wrenching story to get your reader in.

 

FUNDRAISING  sample 2 (1)

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''We need your help. In order to make the 5K successful, we are in need of financial and material donations. Some of the things we need most include monetary contributions, supplies such as running bibs and volunteers for the day of the event.

The purpose of the 5K is to raise $10,000 for after-school educational programs for the schools in our local area. With this goal, we hope to provide crucial supplies, pay after-school directors and redecorate the program spaces. If your organization contributes to our cause, we'd like to offer promotional opportunities. Our organization would feature your company in the promotional materials for the 5K, on our website and in the nonprofit's annual report.''

 

Comment: State how much you are planning to raise and the purpose it will serve. Don't leave everything to chance. 

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''I plan to follow up with you in the next two weeks via phone call. I'm looking forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you may have.''

 

Comment: Did you notice that this letter  didn’t ask for money right away? There’s a reason for that. And I will explain in the subsequent letters.

 

Until then,
Bruce
Director of development

 

Fundraising letter for corporate organizations---example#2

 

Here you go: 

 

Dear [sponsor’s name],

 

Comment: Do you remember what I wrote about the salutation? And can you make that better?

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''My name is [name] and I work for the [department] department at [university’s name]. We work hard each year to make sure that our students are receiving the highest-quality learning experiences in an unforgettable environment.''

 

Comment: Again, do you remember what I said about sending out prospecting letters?

 

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

''This year, we’re [project, for example: developing a new program, building a new building, improving food quality, making new study spaces etc.] that we know is going to bring our students [positive impact, for example: amazing experiences, better quality of life, the materials to succeed, etc.].

 

This has historically caused recurring issues for our university, as students [provide additional context on the purpose of your project]. Addressing it this year will allow our college to focus on growing and our students to focus on learning.

Corporate donation letter for companies

The cost for this [program] is hefty, and that is why we’re asking for your help. As a business [reason why this sponsor is best, for example: is local and witnessed class after class graduate] you know how much of a difference our students can make at [university name] with the right tools and resources.''

 

 

Comment: Something is amiss here…do you know what the writer left out? This is it: ‘’The cost for this [program] is hefty’’

You haven’t said anything at all if you only used that word ''cost'' since it’s really ineffective. It’s like being asked to pay just anything for your monthly rent….That would sound absurd, right?

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

[With a structured sponsorship from your organization, we will be extremely grateful for the opportunity to accomplish our project’s goals and lay stronger foundations for our school’s growth.

If you’d like to donate or discuss our project, please contact me at [email/phone number]. I’d be happy to talk through this partnership with you and to discuss the special perks and incentives our university can offer in exchange for your support.

 

Thank you,

 

Comment: I don’t particularly like this conclusion. It should have been the other way round because you don’t expect someone you are asking money from to follow up on you…do you? That’s quite rude!

 

This next piece will primarily be full of mini assignments. So grab your pen and notepad and answer the questions I am going to ask you and use the answers to formulate your own fundraising corporate letter.

 

Ok....let's move on to this: 

 

Fundraising letter for corporate organizations---sample#3

 

My name is [name] and I am the [position] of [museum’s name]. [Give a brief description of your museum, especially if it is not as well known.]

 

Comment: Is there anything you find wrong here? What can you do to make the above extract great? Let the analysis give you some insight here.

 

FUNDRAISING sample 3

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

We at [museum’s name] work hard to bring beautiful exhibits like [past successful exhibit] to life and curate programs like [past museum program] for unique and memorable experiences.

 

Comment: Can you re-write and substitute a few words here and there?  You might want to add what makes your charity unique. A hint: You can start by painting a picture  of your industry. You may add when the museum was founded and other key associated with it.

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

We are planning a [program, event, exhibit] and are so excited to launch it. Last year, our programs brought in [amount of people], and we hope to pass those numbers this time around. We hope to bring [give a brief description of your program/event/exhibit and something special and unique about it] for our supporters and other [type of museum, art, science] lovers like you!

 

Comment: Here, you might add why you are excited to launch it.  You might also add the kind of help you are looking for and not just leave it to chance. Thinking of a donation? Ask for volunteers? Just ask and you will receive.

 

Ok....let's continue with this.

 

However, we need your help. There are many expenses that come with bringing [program/event/exhibit] to our patrons. With [name a number of expenses], we need [amount of money].

Would you consider helping to sponsor our [program/event/exhibit]? With your support of amount of [ amount], we’d be so much closer to our goal.

If you’d like to discuss our plans and sponsorship options, please contact me at [phone number]. If you decide to become a sponsor, [museum’s name] would like to offer you [incentive, for example: discounted tickets, a plaque, etc].

 

Thank you so much for any help you may be able to provide, we greatly appreciate it!

[museum’s name]

[phone number]

 

Comment: Based on our analysis, don’t you realize that something is wrong here? If so, please let me know what it is. A Hint: Do you contact the giver or ask them to contact you? That's a good food for thought.

Corporate fundraising speech or letter

Let’s face it. One of the most difficult letters you'll ever write is a fundraising or charity letter because most folks hate it when they have to part with money. However, when we ask for cash and use it well for causes so dear to the hearts of donors, they are likely to give their cash and time to support your charity in good times and bad.

Over the years, psychologists have found that donors are moved not by what they read or hear per se. But when certain psychological triggers are applied to your message, donors are moved to support your cause even if the economy is not so great.

When you work with us to craft your fundraising or donation letter, we’ll collaborate to make sure your donors receive not just another letter, but a compelling one that moves the donor to give to your organization generously.

By clicking here to fill out this simple and short form, you are a step away from getting help with your letter.

After you’ve filled it out, we will get in touch with you so we can take it from there and work together to create a truly irresistible donor-centered letter that will make you smiling the entire bank.

What are you waiting for? Just fill out this simple and short form to get started. That's the first step to receiving your letter.
