I was looking to ask for sponsorship for a local boxer. I hate asking for money. I don't know to write a letter to local businesses or set Jars out at locations asking for support or donations.Emotion: smile

Eric has now advanced to Region 6 Silver Glove Tournament
We are asking for donations or Sponsors to travel to Little Rock Arkansas

Any amount is appreciated.
Eric is working his way to National Silver Gloves held February 2 through 5th in Lenexa, Kansas.
If you search this forum you will find lots of previous questions and answers about this sort of letter.

The main thing a business will be interested in is - 'What is in it for me?' So, why should they sponsor you, what can you offer them in return?

At the moment this is just a begging letter and businesses rarely respond to this, they are not charities.
