For any event that needs to be organized, you need a sponsor. Regardless of whether the event is an entertainment event or a sporting one. In some cases, you may need a sponsor in order to raise money for your team. In such a case, you or your company will need to write a letter to different sponsors requesting them to lend you a helping hand in your endeavor. The examples given in this article will help you learn how such letters should be drafted.

Writing Sponsorship Letters for Sports

With any sponsorship letter, it is always important that you send out the letter to an organization that identifies with the event in question. Understand the company you are sending the letter to. Check if they have in the past sponsored such events. If you have any personal contacts at the place, then ensure that you mention their name in the letter. Be clear and precise about what you expect and what you could help out with, in return.

Dear Mr. Smith,

This is on behalf of the Hinton East Hockey Team, the club for whom, I, the undersigned, serve as the President. Our club was formed only four years ago and in this time we have established ourselves as force to reckon with after having competed in several hockey tournaments in and around the city. We have now been given the opportunity to play in the state level hockey tournament that is being organized by the North Carolina State University.

For this endeavor, the team and I have been working to raise funds that will allow us to train well and also give us enough finances to procure new equipment that we need in order to play matches at the state level. Since the club is still a comparatively small one, our funds are not very big and we function on a tiny budget. In order to raise funds for the same, we are organizing a fun fair event and we would be grateful if you would join hands with us in this endeavor. We would like to display your advertising material at prominent places in return for your sponsorship of the funfair. We would also be willing to have your logo on our jerseys. I am sure that this agreement would be one that is mutually beneficial to both parties involved.

Your establishment has quite a reputation in the society and it is known that you have made magnanimous gestures in the past in order to raise sporting awareness in the city. This opportunity too hopes to cater to that commitment of yours. I hope you would consider this proposal.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely
Gavin Ross

These are just two examples that you can use if you need to write a letter inviting sponsorship for your team. As with most sponsored events, it is advisable that you do not pin your efforts to one organization and send it out to as many people as possible.
