Free Download: Simple Fundraising Appeal TemplateMar 21, 2022
So it’s time to write an appeal letter for your nonprofit. You sit down and look at a blank page. Ugh… hate that feeling.
Well, at least for your next appeal, you don’t have to worry!
After last week's post - 10 Tips to Raise More Money With Your Next Fundraising Appeal I had several people reach out to me and ask me to share examples of good appeal letters.
I am going to do something even better. I am offering a free appeal template. I used a very simple Canva template and put together a framework to get a great appeal letter together. I also applied the best practices mentioned in the previous post to the appeal so it meets all the requirements.
This template includes:
- The ready-to-print letter - including prompts to get you to the best wording possible. We used a Canva template so you can just update your fonts, colors, and BAM, it's ready to go.
- An example where the template is filled out entirely for a sample organization - so you can see what it looks like in action. Sometimes it's easier to see the final product first.
- The template to convert your letter into an email - including the email header, your custom signature, and a donate button for you to link to your giving page. Again, all in Canva to drag and drop your photos and update your branding.
- Sample social media posts - all you need to do is add your pictures.
- An example of a branded giving form so you can see how to use our templates to make your giving page more powerful.
