SAMPLE ASK EMAIL

Greetings, INSERT FIRST NAME.

I’m reaching out to share the opportunity with you to be a part of something that has made a huge difference in my life. You have the rare opportunity to help shape a community for generations to come.

I’m a member of the Sno-King Amateur Hockey Association, a nonprofit youth development organization with a mission of Building Players for Life that has served the community for 55 years.  In addition to youth hockey, Sno-King operates learn-to-skate and figure skating programs as well as adult hockey leagues.  We also offer access for the community to gather and enjoy ice sports.  

Sno-King is expanding in 2020 by creating a new twin-sheet ice arena in Snoqualmie that will provide the opportunity to double our programs and reach over 1,600 additional kids.  It also means Sno-King can create an all-girls hockey program and serve as a community asset that will impact tens of thousands of kids, families and adults for decades.  Learn more about our programs through the video links below.  You can learn more about the new arena by clicking here.

Sno-King is partnering with community supporters to cover the cost of constructing and operating the new arena through the Raise the Rink Capital Campaign.  I am reaching out to you today to invite you to join me in helping Sno-King reach our goal of raising $2 million by May 2020. 

Our hockey team is competing with other Sno-King teams to raise funds by February 28, 2020. Can you please help us exceed our team goal of $X,XXX by contributing to the campaign as soon as possible? A gift of any size will propel us closer to our team and campaign goals  

You can donate by clicking here and then clicking the blue button on the top right of the page.  As you complete the donation process, please make sure you identify my team, the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, in the box provided so that we can get credit in our contest.  Contributions on the secure web page may be tax deductible depending on your tax status.

Thank you for helping our team and thousands of young people in Eastside communities by supporting Sno-King.

Sample Thank You Email

Thank you for your donation to Sno-King’s Raise the Rink Campaign and for designating our team to receive the credit toward reaching our campaign goal. With the NHL coming to Seattle there will be thousands of additional kids that will want to play hockey.  You have played a significant part in helping Sno-King to create an ice arena facility that will benefit the community for generations to come and that will allow Sno-King to reach thousands of kids through its programs.

The entire Sno-King community is very grateful for your generous donation. 

Sincerely,
