What Is a Sponsorship Request Letter?
A Sponsorship Request Letter is a document that contains a request for fundraising and is sent to individuals and entities. The purpose of the request is to offer its recipients encouragement as a reward for their donation. The donation can be made in cash or in other forms, for example, by contributing resources instead of cash.
