Dear [Donor Name],
In honor of Labor Day, I’m rallying my friends and family to support Music Forward’s Rock Your Role campaign.
Every year, students graduate without the skills they need to secure, stable income-earning jobs. Many of these students are not aware of the variety of careers available to them, especially in growing industries like entertainment.
Music Forward aims to change that. Their job-readiness programs prepare youth for successful careers by connecting them with real-life industry professionals who serve as mentors and examples of the many different paths to success.
This year, I’m joining the cause in honor of my mentor, [Your mentor’s name], and have set a goal of raising [Insert Fundraising Goal Here]. I hope you will join me in supporting these young people.
ROCK YOUR ROLE TODAY! Just $20 connects a Music Forward volunteer with a future rock star or industry executive.
Thank you so much for your support.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
