LIVE AUCTION DONATION LETTERS
Thank you so much for your generous offer for our Live Auction for the FAWCO Conference in Rome 2015.
In order to best advertise your lovely home and to present the information in an attractive way at our conference and on The FAWCO Foundation Website, please send us more specific details using the guidelines of the agreement form attached.
I am writing to you in hopes that ___________ can help The FAWCO Foundation. We are the philanthropic branch of FAWCO-The Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas- which is a network of over 75 organizations worldwide (www.fawcofoundation.org andwww.fawco.org ). The FAWCO Foundation supports academic awards, a development grants program, university scholarships for young women in Burkina Faso (NEEED) and a project focused on Human Rights for women whose recipient is Free The Girls (www.freethegirls.org) – an organization working with former victims of sex trafficking in Africa and Latin America.
In order to continue charitable associations such as this, each year The Foundation holds its largest fundraiser at the FAWCO conference. We have an evening event that includes dinner and an auction. This year our auction will launch online in advance of the conference, to reach all of our FAWCO members and their family and friends, instead of just the members who can attend the event. Proceeds go to charity as we are an all-volunteer Foundation.
My hope is that your organization would be willing to donate either a resort stay or high-end item for our Auction event. The event is March 27, 2015, in Rome, Italy.
In return we will feature your donation highlighting your organization on our website beginning in January (or as soon as we have its details.) We will auction the item online and/or potentially at the conference and would be happy to distribute your brochures and/or other marketing material to attendees at the event.
We would be thrilled to have an item from your consortium in the auction. Thank you for considering our request.
