You should include a story and a link to your online donation form- and remember to make a specific donation request.

EMAIL TEMPLATE

Good morning friends, family, and sport loving supporters,

As many of you know, I am an Aussie athlete on the journey to *event* for *sport*. I have faced many obstacles during my sporting journey. (Briefly outline some hurdles you have overcome, for example, training day and night, eating strict diets, overcoming injury, working part time while trying to train)

Through hard work, dedication, and passion, I have been able to overcome these obstacles. There is one obstacle that I cannot overcome alone- even as one of the best in my sport: I do not receive enough funding to *briefly outline what costs you are raising funds to cover.*

I need your help to raise *$ donation target amount by deadline date*. Without this funding I will not have the best possible chance acheiving success and doing my best for Australia.

I am partnering with the Australian Sports Foundation’s Athlete Fundraising program, so you can donate directly to athletes, like myself, and help fund us when we need it most – and all donations are tax-deductible!

You can donate now and support me on my journey to *event* at *insert online donation form link*. Your generous donations will mean I can spend time focussed on exactly what I need to do to achieve the best outcome.

Thank you for your support
