Email template

Here’s a template to help you write an email to your friends and family, letting them know about your project and how they can help you spread the word. This is a rough guideline and should be changed to be specific to your project and the people you are emailing.

Dear [name]

I just wanted to get in touch to let you know that I recently got involved with [project/charity name] and we’ve had an application for funding from the OneFamily Foundation approved.

Having our application approved is great news in itself, but there’s still a way to go – which projects get the funding depends entirely on the public vote, which opens at the beginning of June. This is where you come in! It would be great if you could help us get funding by going to our project page here [enter the URL of your project page] and voting for us when the time comes.

[Brief explanation of what your project is, how much funding you’re applying for and how you’ll use it] If you’d like to know any more about our project, there’s loads of pictures and information on our project page [or if you have a website you can direct them there too].

If you’d be interested in helping me get the word out there further, or if you know anyone who might want to vote for the project, please pass the information on to them as the more people who know about it, the better – and you’d be helping a really great cause.

Thanks a lot.

[Your name]
