Director’s Appeal

May 1, 20XX

Mr. John Doe
President, World Corporation

Boston, MA 10000

Dear John,

I am writing to invite World Corporation to be a 20XX national corporate sponsor of Toys for Tots by making a tax-deductible donation of $25,000.

Since 1947 the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has reached out to communities throughout the United States to bring the joy of Christmas to less fortunate children. Last year, Marines distributed over 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children throughout the nation. The sustained success of the U.S. Marine Corps’s premier community action program – Toys for Tots – is directly attributable to the corporate support it has enjoyed for the past half century.

As a national corporate sponsor, you will be taking positive social action by providing a ray of hope to less fortunate children. You will also make a patriotic statement by supporting the U.S. Marine Corps’ premier community action program. You will gain name recognition and visibility by being affiliated with one of the nation’s flagship Christmas charitable causes. Lastly, you will enhance the 20XX Toys for Tots Campaign by honoring us with the distinction of having a corporation of the stature of World as a 20XX national corporate sponsor.

Christmas 20XX is just around the corner. Marines will pursue a goal of bringing the joy of Christmas to more children than in any of the previous campaigns. Alongside the Marines, the Foundation is already working hard to raise the funds needed to enable Marines to attain their goal.

Our President & CEO and/or our Vice President for Marketing and Development and I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the Foundation and its work in greater detail and answer any questions you may have.

I can be reached at ________________. I look forward to hearing from you.
