I am writing to thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Freedom Community Project in 2017. Because of you, we managed to support 40 people into housing last year. We also helped 64 people tackle over half a million pounds in personal debt, 1,200 people apply for benefits they were entitled to and brought over £1,500,000 in backdated benefit payments to the people who needed it.
This year we have seen an unprecedented increase in people needing our support. This has put a major strain on our financial resources, which means that the end of this financial year could be very tough for the organisation. Sadly, it looks like many more people will require our services next year, and we are gearing up to tackle even more debt, homelessness, benefit enquiries and tribunals than ever before.
You can help these people who are really struggling right now by making a small one-off or download our standing order form to make a regular donation. Just £5.00 will make a huge difference and enable us to continue the vital work across local communities.
If you are able to help by making a one-off donation, you can visit our website at https://www.fcgroup.org.uk or send a cheque to the above address made payable to Freedom Community Project. Alternatively, if you would like to set up a monthly standing order, please complete the attached form and hand in at your bank. If you are a UK Tax Payer, completing the attached Gift Aid form will allow us to top up your donation by 25%.
Your gift plays a vital role in the support work we offer to people struggling with deprivation who have nowhere else to go. Without it, our work would not be possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and consider making a donation to the Freedom Community Project. If you would like to know more about ways in which you can support us, please contact us on 01246 241 457 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
