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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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!

Farewell speech 2

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

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.

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.

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.
