Dear (recipient's name)

 

Last year, you generously contributed to my fundraiser for Science-A-Thon, supporting the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN). Thank you!!! This year, I am participating in Science-A-Thon again, and I am writing to ask if you’d be interested in making another gift? 

My donation website is: (URL of your personal Crowdrise fundraising page)

With your support and a donation match, last year we raised $32,000 for ESWN — the largest fundraiser of the year for this high-impact charity! We already have nearly 200 scientists signed up for 2019, and we are hoping to raise $100,000. Each participant will share their day via social media next week. I’ll be posting my photos on (Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/other) and also on the donation website on (day). If you’re on Instagram or Twitter, you can follow along with the hashtags #dayofscience and #scienceathon. 

This year we’ll be supporting three awesome charities: Girls Who Code (engaging girls in STEM at a young age), the Society of Women Engineers (making a huge impact on college-level engineering), and ESWN (focused on early-career scientists and removing roadblocks for all). I’m really excited to share my work and support these groups. I hope you’ll consider joining in! 

Best Regards,

(your name)
