To whomsoever it may concern,
Green Roots, which is an organization dedicated to the cause of the environment, is in the planning stages of its annual Save the Earth gala. As in the past the success of our event has largely been due to the contributions of our sponsors who have gone out of their way to lend financial support to this event. Every year the money we raise has been donated to the cause of increasing awareness about global warming and the threats the environment faces today. This year we plan on donating all funds to setting up a secondary recycling plant in Devon to make our city more eco-friendly.
We hope that as in the past, this year too you would support the gala by joining hands with us as a sponsor for the event. As a sponsor, your organization is sure to receive exposure from media campaigns and all promotions for the event. You will also gain exposure from the audience attending the event. As a company dedicated to cause of green solutions, you are definitely an ideal partner for us in this venture.
We have several different packages for sponsorship and these are detailed in the sponsorship commitment form enclosed with this letter. You can choose how you would want to participate in the event and how you would like to help make the community we live in a greener place.
We are looking forward to hearing from you. In case you have any queries you can contact us at the numbers given on the form enclosed. Thank you for being our partner in the past and hopefully you will continue to support us in this endeavor.

Request for Sponsorship – "Company Name" Annual Dinner 2011
Thank you for all the support rendered to us. In this year of gradual economic recovery, we appreciate greatly to have trusted business partners like you helping us out tremendously.
We believe this Year is coming to a good ending. It is time again for our recreation team to plan and organise the Company Annual Dinner in mid December 2011. Similar to previous years, we would like to invite your non-obligatory voluntary sponsorship to help us make our annual dinner a more memorable and eventful one. The sponsorship received will be used as prizes for our staff lucky draw segment.
Your form of sponsorship should preferably be gift vouchers or items. Please do not feel obliged to accommodate to our request should it not be appropriate. Our good relation stays strong even in the absence of a sponsorship. We shall only accept contributions that are deemed appropriate for your organisation to offer.
Once again, let me represent our company to extend our most heartfelt appreciation in advance, as we look forward to receive any of your generous contributions. We would prefer for your sponsorship to reach us before "date", so that we have enough time to arrange the prizes.
Should you have any queries in this matter, please contact XXX at DID: XXX, or XXX at DID: XXX for further assistance.
Thank you very much.

When asking for a donation, a gift-in-kind, or services from a corporation, it is best to use a letter.
Companies prefer a letter, spelling out exactly what you need, rather than a more formal proposal such as you would provide to a foundation.
Some corporations do have online application forms so check to see if this is the case. A call to the corporate office that handles corporate giving will do to get this information or a visit to the business website.
Below is a fictional sample letter to a corporation requesting a gift-in-kind, based on a format recommended by Beverly A. Browning, author of Grant Writing for Dummies (Buy from Amazon).
Notice that, even though this request is a letter, it is very specific. It describes the work of the organization in detail and spells out exactly what it needs from this company. The more specific you can be, the easier it is for the company to say yes.
Besides the details of your request, include a story that will touch even a corporation. In this letter, the postscript contains that story.
The Gravitas Neighborhood Senior Center
90123 S. Lindenwood Lane
Monsoon, IA 14399-5678

Two hundred of the 425 people over the age of 65 who use our senior center are considered to be living below the state poverty level. Most of those receive their morning and noon meals through our meals program on site.
In the past two years, the number of older adults living below the poverty level in Butler County, District 9, has risen 10 percent annually. Many of those have found their way to our Senior Center and to our daily meals program, where we serve nearly 300 breakfasts and lunches daily for a sliding fee based on income.
The neighborhoods surrounding our senior center contain primarily lower middle-class families, the working poor, and older people living on modest fixed incomes in their small homes, senior apartments, or with their adult children. The Senior Center is the only possible safe environment for most, outside their homes, and they come nearly daily for companionship, recreation, and warm meals.
Located in Monsoon, Iowa, The Gravitas Senior Center was founded in 1985 by the Butler County Council on Aging, which serves a large senior population throughout the county's 75 square miles.
The Gravitas Neighborhood Senior Center's mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to support the social, physical, and health needs of the neighborhood's older adults.
Over 100 volunteers and four full-time staff assist in the Center's daily programs and activities throughout the year. The Center offers several outstanding programs such as:
According to the May 2015 issue of the American Journal of Gerontology, older adults are 89 percent more likely to be physically and mentally active if they have a safe and attractive place to get together, and if they receive at least one nutritious meal daily.
The seniors in our community would not have these advantages were it not for the work of the Gravitas Community Senior Center. Many, who live at or below the poverty level, would never receive a nutritious meal, much less two in one day.
In fact, many of the neighborhood's elders would find themselves isolated and without safe opportunities to exercise, to socialize, or to invigorate their brains if it were not for our facility.
The Center is open six days per week from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. It feeds, provides social opportunities and exercise of mind and body to the otherwise underserved senior population of our neighborhood.
The warmth and laughter within the Center's walls attest to the pleasure and health provided by the Senior Center to our community.
Unfortunately, our meals program has dilapidated and outdated appliances. As the Center's Executive Director, I am writing to you to request a gift in kind of a commercial stove and refrigerator manufactured by your company.
Not only is your business located in Monsoon, Iowa, not far from our Senior Center in the Gravitas neighborhood, but your commercial kitchen equipment is also known for its durability and functionality. I know because I've done extensive research on kitchen equipment, and your company's products stand out.
I have been particularly impressed by your Model 68B2 commercial stove and oven, as well by your 98 cubic foot, model 583J refrigerator. Both of these appliances would work well for our center considering the number of meals we prepare and the people we serve.
If your company chooses to help our Center, you will contribute more than just equipment. You will be a key partner in providing a healthy life for more than 400 older adults each week.
The result of your help and our services means that our seniors, many of whom are poor, can live engaged, alert, and physically active lives as long as possible. These elders should never be considered excess baggage but valued members of our community as long as they live.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this proposal, and please do not hesitate to contact me at 485-312-4890 with any questions about this request. We are badly in need of new kitchen equipment and hope to begin the new year with it in place.
Hoping for your partnership,
Janice Head, M.A.

P.S. As I was writing this letter to you, I received a call from the family of a senior woman, desperate to find a safe place where their mother, recently arrived from New York, could find other people her age to meet in her new community.
I was able to assure them that their mother would find a welcoming community right here at the Center, as well as many programs that would keep her healthy, active, and alert. I could hear the relief in their voices as they made an appointment to bring their mother to the Center on Monday morning for introductions and a tour.
The letter basically convinces the reader to sponsor something for an event or cause. The letter is the most decent way of asking someone to sponsor and hence.
