Sample Thank You Letters

Repeat Walker

Dear [Name],

Thank you for making a donation to my Susan G. Komen 3-Day® fundraising account. Over the past 16 years and 170 events, the Komen 3-Day has raised more than $848 million—which Komen has used to save lives and make huge strides in breast cancer research. In 2016, Komen set a Bold Goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. The funds raised have helped Komen‘s mission to save lives from breast cancer, by investing more than $956 million in breakthrough research and more than $2.1 billion to support people and communities most at risk through programs to provide access to screening, treatment assistance, patient navigation and education. 

I appreciate the support you have shown me in the past and am honored that so many of my donors have been generous enough to give again this year. Thank you for recognizing that the fight against breast cancer continues.

You can read more about the Komen 3-Day and the efforts your donation goes to support at Or call 800-996-3DAY for more information.

So far I've raised [$amount] - only [$amount] more until I reach my goal! Come celebrate with me at the 3-Day Closing Ceremony, which will be held on [date]. I'll send you more details about the time and place as it gets closer.

I'll be keeping all of my donors in mind, and in my heart, as I walk 60 miles in the 3-Day. Without your generosity, none of this would be possible.
