Dear Mr./Ms. (Recepient’s Last Name),


In behalf of our organization, I would like to solicit financial or material support from your company for an upcoming activity we are holding.  Our organization, the (Organization’s Name), was established in 1990 with the aim of giving help to poor but deserving individuals who want to pursue a college degree but have no financial means to do so.  Our organization is committed to helping others earn a degree since we believe that this is an important way for the poor to uplift their lives.

Since we are a non-profit, non-government organization, we are soliciting your help for new scholars this academic year.  We have received hundreds of applications for our scholarship program and it is sad that we will only be able to finance 100 new scholars this year.  We are hoping that through your help, we will be able to accept more scholars.

Thank you.
