How do you write a 'sponsor' letter or request?

Asked by Jill_E (885 points ) January 22nd, 2008

Our community would love a farmers market in town. To have one, it costs 1,500. I wonder how do you write a sponsor letter to local companies to help out the community’s wish. Thanks in advance.

my suggestions

you need to give yourselves a name first
you need to know who your members on the committee organizing this are
do you have a business plan like what is this $1500 for (i assume renting the space)
for how many months, hours
what about parking, marketing
are you charging admission too or is admission free
what are you charging the farmers to set up tables
do you have enough farmers interested

If you wish to contribute and be a part of our corporate membership, please enclose a cheque for $150.00 (or any other amount you are comfortable with) and submit it to the following address. If we are unable to secure funds from the ten companies we targetted, we will expand and approach additional companies to fund the difference:

Please indicate, along with your check, if you wish to be recognized as a corporate sponsor and listed on Farmers Market web site (if you have one of course!!!!) FILL IN NAME HERE . This listing will include links to your web site and a contact person of your choice.
