Dear [NAME, ex. John Smith],
Hi [NAME, ex. John Smith]. Long time no see. How are things with your family?
I have volunteered to assist with the most recent Fundraising Campaign for [NAME OF HIGHSCHOOL]. I guess that’s a long-winded way of saying I’m someone who gets to call up his old buddies to hit them up for donations. I’m sure you’re well aware of the Campaign, however I have enclosed some promotional materials, which might help you decide if you would like to contribute.
On a serious note, I personally feel heavily indebted to the school and I consider it a very worthwhile cause to support. I hope you share my sentiments. I would love to discuss this further with you if you wish, and I have pledged to write and call some of my close friends to solicit their support.
I will try to give you a call in the near future to discuss the Campaign. Thanks for your anticipated support.
[YOUR NAME, ex. Jill Jones]
