Sample E-mail to fellow alumni

Dear _____,

I have a favor to ask.

Our years at UC Davis changed our lives. And now, we have the opportunity to do the same for someone else.

The UC Davis Foundation is holding its first-ever Give Day today. By midnight, it hopes to reach 50 percent alumni participation in giving to the UC Davis Scholarship Fund for the academic year.

The scholarship has played an important role in my life and career. I’m guessing it has for you, too. I’d love for you to visit giveday.ucdavis.edu and join me in making a gift today.

#EveryAggieCounts, and we can show that we support the Foundation, the scholars, and everything they’re trying to accomplish.

Best wishes,

_____

Sample E-mail to non-alumni

Dear _____,

I need your help.

As you may know, I attended UC Davis on a ________ Scholarship. Those four years in UCD changed my life.

The ________ Scholarship does so much more than help with the cost of attending a terrific university, scholarships and awards allow students to chase their dreams without having to worry so much about a financial burden. Scholarships and awards encourage scholars to pursue their own interests and mine their potential.

Now UC Davis is raising money to increase aide for Aggies and today, it’s holding its first-ever Day of Giving. I just made my gift to support current and future Aggie scholars—and I wondered if you would join me?

If you would like, you can visit giveday.ucdavis.edu and make a gift that’s meaningful to you.

Thank you in advance for joining me in this important effort!

Best wishes,

_____
