 5 important things to remember in writing your sponsorship proposal letter

1.  Address your written sponsorship proposal letter to the appropriate person. 

2.  Call your potential sponsor's organization and find out the name of the person who deals with charitable giving and sponsorships.

3.  FInd out if the company has guidelines for charitable giving/sponsorships and if so, request a copy. Only appeal to the company for a sponsorship if your organization falls within the giving guidelines.

4,  Follow up your sponsorship proposal letter with a phone call to assess interest and to seek an appointment to discuss the sponsorship. Getting a face-to-face meeting with your potential sponsor makes a huge difference in whether or not you get your sponsorship!

5.  Be prepared for that call with sponsorship levels to offer. Here is a sample sponsorship levels template to help you.
