Dear, Howard Johnston

I am writing on behalf of the Equestrian Team at Utah State University they’re in need of your help. We have had a goal to build an Arena so that we can host competitions and conduct equine research classes for the equine program. I am writing to you because I have seen the other ways that you give to the community and would be proud to say that our program represents values that you stand for. I am only asking that your stores supply the Arena with the necessary supplies to outfit and operate the team. The total expense to your company would be $7000.00.

We know that you have helped communities with similar situations on a smaller scale. We see this as a great opportunity to do so on a bigger stage. The young people that represent the University will also more noticeably represent you by using your products.

The problem is that this program has a great potential that is not currently being used. We have acres of land that are sitting empty. And while we are building an arena we only ask for the supplies from your stores to carry the team through the seasons’ events. Sponsoring us will create a partnership with your company and our community for years to come.

We have come up with the proposed figure based on the supplies needed for each team member, the number of practices and events. We have ten team members and also two coaches. We practice 3 times a week and currently participate in ten events in a year. We are submitting the same figures to the sponsors we are asking to fund the arena and other projects in the program

I ask not that you show us you are capable of a quality of excellence that matches our fine Institution. I know that you can provide us with superior products that will make us superior to the competition. In turn this will make you superior to your competition as well.
