Add lots of pictures. We saw that some of the most successful school fundraisers used lots of colorful cover letters and fliers with eye-catching images. A great cover letter should do just that – catch people’s eye and be straightforward with the prizes and products. Add photos of prizes students can win and put short, simple sentences explaining exactly how they can participate.

Include the deadlines and important dates. Don’t forget to include the who, what, where, when and why on your cover letter. Add the contact information, important deadlines and where to drop off the orders – you want people to know exactly how they can participate just by glancing at your letter.Great Fundraiser Cover Letters - Real Fundraisers
