In the previous lesson, we saw the format of a formal letter and an example of a letter of complaint. Let us now see an example of a formal letter of request.

Here is a letter of request to a donor, requesting him to sponsor a project in your N G O.

As you can see, the letter is divided into five parts.

  1. The heading with the writer’s address and date
  2. The address of the person we are writing to, a donor company in this case
  3. The greeting or the salutation, Dear sir
  4. The body of the letter
  5. The subscription or leave taking, Your sincerely
  6. The signature, Mrs. K. V. Dixit

This is the way, we write a formal letter of request. I am sure you will easily able to write one. Don’t forget to write the superscription i.e. the address on the envelope clearly, as shown in the previous lesson.

Stay tuned….Goodbye!
