Sample Letter For Financial Assistance

Here is a Sample Letter For Financial Assistance you may use as a guide.

SAMPLE LETTER – This is a sample letter for financial assistance which you may use as a guide when writing to be sent to a wealthy person or among others.

What you have to keep in mind is that it is never easy to ask for a financial assistance. In terms of being in dire need or for someone who really needs that assistance, you may send a letter asking for this to a wealthy person who may want to help, to a church, a charity, or to the government. A sample letter of this is provided below.

Most of the time, persons who needed this kind of assistance are those who are sick and students at the tertiary level. Also, if you are in a difficult pregnancy or death of an immediate family member, you can also formally ask for someone’s help.

Here are some tips when you are in this situation or knows someone to be in this situation:

  • It must be a well-written financial aid appeal letter.
  • Address your letter to a specific person.
  • Explain your circumstances and the specific reasons why you need additional aid. 
  • Always thank the person you’re writing and write any contact details in case of any further question about the matter or situation.

Dear Mr. Hopkins:

This letter is a formal appeal to you for help with the medical expenses and fees of one of our students Lara Lopez who is currently battling leukemia.

I am her teacher for two years and I have known her to be a very bright and diligent student. She’s from a poor family where her father has become disabled due to a heart attack while her mother earns through doing the laundry from their neighbors.

Lara is just 16 years old and with her family’s state, it is quite impossible for them to afford a series of chemotherapy sessions for her treatment. Attached here are her medical records, medications, and copies of tests. I also enclosed her school records in this document to prove that she’s currently enrolled in this institution.

On behalf of her family, we would very much appreciate your help in any way you can. You can contact me directly at 0918-999-9876. Thank you for the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you.
