Sample Solicitation Letter for Community Outreach Program Donations (Content)
We, the AcadShare Young Philanthropists, a nonprofit civic organization comprised of kindhearted individuals, mostly teachers and students of AcadShare State University, pursue a humanitarian cause of improving the quality of life of indigenous and underprivileged Mangyan people in Occidental Mindoro through our active solicitation and delivery of goods, as well as educational, health, and livelihood services.
For around five years of our continuous pursuit of this cause, we have served as a trustworthy partner of our generous sponsors from various walks of life. More than these in-kind donations however, we have also advocated and demonstrated a more profound cause that entails our forging of a more welcoming social relationship with the once-secluded Mangyan communities.
True enough, many are still unaware that far from our busy and quite progressive cities are remote and mountainous areas where indigent ethnic people remain traditional in their practices, and hence do not enjoy access to the quality of life, particularly the necessities such as food, clothing, education, and health services. Last July, Occidental Mindoro was seriously devastated by typhoon Josie, and many of our Mindoreños including Mangyans suffered from major losses in agriculture and livelihood.
With this, we are knocking on your generous hearts for your in-kind donations (clothes, canned goods, hygiene kits, footwear for kids, toys, etc.). As we conduct our community visits and distributions of goods every December prior to the celebration of Christmas, we look forward to hearing from you soon so we could address further concerns such as transportation and repackaging of goods.
On behalf of our Mangyan beneficiaries, the AcadShare Young Philanthropists would like to express our heartfelt gratitude. As Phillips Brooks once said, “Charity should begin at home, but should not stay there.” God bless us all.
