One of my children attends a special needs school. The nursery of the school would like to build a garden area where children can plant and grow flowers, vegetables, herbs. I thought I’d write some letters to local garden centres asking for donations of plants. Has anyone got any tips on the best way to approach this for the best results? Many thanks.
A brief paragraph that outlines the school’s basic purpose should begin the letter, followed by a request for a specific donation. Add a date/time when you’d like to pick up the donation, and mention that there will be a follow up phone call to arrange that, if convenient.
If possible, an invitation to view the site of the proposed garden would be nice.
Most businesses are glad to make such donations, so long as they are specific, picked up rather than delivered and appropriate donation receipts are given.
