Marching Band Sponsorship Letter Template For Sponsors
Who else is searching for a marching band sponsorship letter template?
We hope our template becomes useful to your high school band members. Today, sponsorship is a crucial component of a school fundraiser for marching bands. When used in conjunction with regular product fundraisers like the ones we offer, they have a huge impact.
So, how do you draft a successful sponsorship letter? How do you write a letter that would move someone to take out their check book and write you a donation?
First of all you must have a good list of businesses to write to. Here are some Marching Band Sponsor Ideas.
Small business owners are deluged with advertisements, sales people and daily requests for money. As a result they are leery of talking to anyone… let alone giving them some of their hard earned money.
So, before you go copying and pasting a band sponsor letter from the internet… This is something you owe to yourself to read first.
The sure way to failure is to talk about your band and your needs
Unfortunately, the cold hard truth is that no one cares about your band needing to raise funds. I know that hurts to hear but it is the ugly truth of the matter.
So what are you supposed to do then?
The answer is to talk about how you can help their business.
Lets look at a sample letter together. Please notice how it talks about how you can help their business— Instead of them helping you.
