Sample Fundraising Letters

From a Repeat Walker, version 1

Dear Friends and Family,

It’s that time of year again – Susan G. Komen 3-Day® fundraising time! You’ve all been on this journey with me before – many of you for many, many years so you know how important this commitment is to me. I’m excited to announce that this August will mark my 10th anniversary with the Komen 3-Day for me and Team Tatas!

That’s 10 times taking a 60-mile walk (add in all of my training walks and that’s probably more than 1,000 miles I’ve walked just for the 3-Day®!) and 10 times asking you, my family and friends, to support me with your donations. And you’ve never let me down.

So it’s time to step it up! Let’s make breast cancer a thing of the past we can do it! In honor of all of the brave survivors in my life who inspire me every day: Linda, Aunt Sherry, Polly Ann, and Mindy, and of course my angels in heaven: Grandma Helen and Kirstin.

There are three easy ways you can make a big difference:

  • Click the link at the end of this email to make a donation.
  • Call 800-996-3DAY to make your donation over the phone.
  • Come to my annual fundraising bash on Saturday, June 9th at Beekman Park at 2:00 p.m. We’ll have BBQ, games, music, and don’t forget to bring your wallet!

As usual, I’ll be adding my 12 top donors to the shirt I’ll be wearing on the 3-Day.

I do this for everyone who’s fighting, and everyone we’ve lost. We can see the end of breast cancer. I’ll keep walking until we do.
