Sample Fundraising Letters

From a Team Member

I have decided to take a bold step – actually thousands of bold steps! In [Month] I will join thousands of women and men who are going to walk 60 miles over the course of three days in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. I am excited, and a little nervous about walking 20 miles a day for three straight days and sleeping in a pink tent for two nights. But I am also determined to do this, and I am asking you to support me and this important cause. Every 19 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. That is why I am walking and fundraising for the Komen 3-Day. Because everyone deserves a lifetime®.

I have joined [Team Name] in memory/support of [describe your personal connection to the cause]. Together, my team plans on raising at least [Team $amount] to help end breast cancer forever. Personally, I am going to raise [Personal $amount] of that. That’s where you come in…

Please consider making a donation of [$amount]. You can donate to me at The3Day.org, or follow the link below to make an online donation in an amount that works for you. You can also call 800-996-3DAY, or donate by check, made payable to Susan G. Komen 3-Day; mail your donation checks to me [insert address] and I will submit them with a copy of my personalized donation form. You can spread your credit card donation over four monthly payments, and your company may even offer to match your donation through their Matching Gifts program. No donation is too big – or too small.

Thank you for your support for my 3-Day journey. I will keep you posted on my progress!
