Dear [Name],

As you know, my involvement with [insert team name] is near to my heart. What you may not know is that our team was launched in partnership with Generation Spirit, a nonprofit organization that creates, outfits, and trains inclusive spirit teams across America. 

GenS is dedicated to building a more inclusive world for young people with disabilities. And, because they provide all of their services cost-free to teams like ours, they rely on support from individual donors. 

Will you join me in supporting Generation Spirit by becoming a member of their IN Crowd of monthly donors? By spreading out your support throughout the year, your donation will be both affordable and effective. Even $15 or $20 a month (less than a dollar a day) can make a significant impact. 

 

You can learn more and sign up here: www.generationspirt.org/donate

If my journey with [insert team name] has taught me anything, it's that every student deserves the chance to be part of a team. Our team has been transformative for our school and I want other students to have the same experience. I hope you'll join me. 

Sincerely,

[Your Name]

THANK YOU

For supporting Generation Spirit and our growing family of inclusive spirit teams. Our work wouldn't be possible without advocates like you.
