Contribution Letter

Here is an example of the contribution letter that you can send or email to family and friends:

Dear ______,
I am writing to you on behalf of the Burns Park World Language Initiative, a non-profit organization created by parent volunteers to provide funding for foreign language education at Burns Park Elementary School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I thought you might be interested in making a contribution to help continue to make foreign language education a reality for the children at Burns Park. Learning a foreign language stimulates the growth of children’s brains and enhances learning and cognitive development in many other areas. Just as importantly, it helps children gain a competitive edge in the global economy and encourages them to become true citizens of the world. Please consider making a gift to this very worthy cause.

BPWLI is a non-profit corporation in the State of Michigan and now has 501(c)(3) status. Your financial contribution may be tax-deductible; you will receive a receipt for tax purposes. For additional information and to download a contribution form, please visit their website,

Thank you very much.
