Nervous about fundraising and meeting your goal? Let us help!

Letter and Email Templates: 

Writing a letter to friends and family is one of the easiest ways to raise money for SLUDM. All you have to do is fill out the form below, and we do the rest! We will print and mail the letter at no expense to you. Once you fill out the form, you will be returned to this page so that you are able to fill out as many forms as you would like.

You can expect the letter to look just like the one displayed on this page, except with the information that you fill out in your form.

The letters are mailed on a bimonthly basis and the received letters are inputted on a bimonthly basis. You can expect to see a received letter on your DonorDrive in about a month!

If you have questions, you can contact Alyssa Weber, the co-chair of fundraising at
