Sample Thank You Letter to Sponsors/Donors


Dear ________________,

Thank you so much for your support of my efforts in raising funds for San Diego Writers, Ink in our 10th Annual Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon. Your generous pledge [of $_________] meant so much to me personally, and to Writers, Ink. With your support, we surpassed our goal of $20,000 and, as of last count, raised $23,543.99! [note: you can check the Blazing Laptops website for the latest total] And, thanks to you, I [reached my goal of/exceeded my goal of/raised] $__________.

The all-day event on Sunday was lively, fun, and productive. [add a personal anecdote here, what you wrote or your favorite line or image, or something about your project or your experience].

Thank you again for your donation. Reaching, even surpassing our goal is especially meaningful this year because of city-wide budget cuts to arts organizations. Your gift, and hundreds more like it, means San Diego Writers, Ink can continue to nurture and support writers with its low-cost classes, workshops, readings, and other programs, and will continue to play a vital role in San Diego’s lively arts and culture community.

I am so grateful for your generosity, for believing in me and showing your support for my work and the organization that means so much to me.


NOTE: Add photos if you have them, too. One of the best rewards you can give to your donors is an image of you writing—whether at Blazing Laptops or at your very own writing desk at home.
