I am writing to you as chair of MyOrganisationName. [Insert short description i.e. work with single teenage mums in the Houghton area of town to help improve parenting skills and enable them to finish their education…… ] We have been operating for ten years and feel that now is the time to raise our profile/ seek the support of notable local politicians/ seek endorsement from an expert in this area/etc*
I have therefore been asked to approach you on behalf of the committee to see if you would consider becoming the patron of MyOrganisationName.
I have enclosed some information about us as well as the address of our website (www.MyOrganisationName.org.uk) which gives a good indication of the work that we do. I would be delighted to have the opportunity of telling you more about us. We have an open day next month that you would be welcome to attend or alternatively I would be very happy to meet with you at a time and place of you convenience.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 1234 567890 if you would like to discuss this proposal further.
