Corporate Partnership Request Letter Sample should be professional and succinct. Most corporations will look at what their opportunities are and whether or not it will be a mutually beneficial relationship. In other words, they want to know that they will be getting some kind of direct benefit for making a donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. When you send the letter, address it to a specific person by name, not just by title. For example, sending a letter to “Corporate Giving Director” looks a little too vague and may be mistaken for junk mail. In your letter, identify who you are, what you are doing, why you are doing it, and (possibly the most important part) what the corporation can expect in terms of benefits for its contributions. As with your other letters, request a response date so they understand the urgency of the matter. If the company wants to contribute but cannot give you a check until after the response date, request a commitment letter stating when the contribution will be made. Many companies have a significant amount of lag time between when a check is requested and when it is actually cut. If you have other concerns regarding corporate contributions, please contact Courtney Smith at (408) 271-8311 or SmithC@ca-sj.leukemia-lymphoma.org.
