To Whom it May Concern:

On behalf of NAME OF ORGANIZATION, we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the contributions of refugee and immigrant youth by sponsoring an inspiring young person /group of young people to attend the Youth Action Gathering taking place in Toronto on June 6, 2018.

The 2018 Youth Action Gathering is being organized by the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR), in partnership with the Center for Refugees Studies at York, Amnesty international at York and WUSC Keele committee at York. The gathering will bring together young immigrant and refugee leaders to learn, share, network and collaborate on actions towards common challenges and experiences of newcomer youth communities. It is also an engaging weekend of leadership and skills building and developing peer relationships! For more information, please see ccrweb.ca/en/youth/meetings.

Newcomer youth from outside Toronto need to fundraise to cover their travel to Toronto and accommodation there.

Participation in this important event will promote access and inclusion for newcomer youth, and provide an invaluable opportunity for skill development and professional growth. We also want to ensure that our province is represented at this national gathering.

To achieve this we need your help! Please consider sponsoring this initiative with a contribution of $25 [Adjust amount depending on estimated capacity]. Anything you can contribute will help us move closer to our goal of $XXX. In exchange for a small monetary contribution, we would be happy to [say what you can offer to do to thank them – e.g. sending a report acknowledging sponsors, offering a community presentation after the event and sending them an invitation to attend].
