I have recently taken on the role of development within my organization with limited experience. We provide a myriad of services and I want to provide a concise letter that boils down what we do as an anti-trafficking organization into a compelling letter that will open the door to cultivating major donors or invitations for grant proposals. I want to tell our story in a way captures the attention of the reader quickly.
We are moving towards opening a home for trafficking victims. While we have been successful in getting grants, we have struggled in the area of obtaining major ongoing donors. This letter will be one of the first steps that would help us get the ongoing funding support needed to open a home for victims. We prefer not to get state and federal grants because we are a faith based organization and are smaller, and the cost of administering such a grant is more than we are willing to pay.
Our mission is to bring an end to sex trafficking by empowering the residents of Hampton Roads' cities and the surrounding region through education, awareness, advocacy and prevention campaigns.
We partner with other organizations that are involved in the work of eradicating sex trafficking and bringing restoration to former victims.
