Dear Ms Graham,
I wish to apply for the position of Fundraiser that was advertised on the www.dayjob.com website last week.
I feel what makes me stand out from others is my ability to mirror a charities values and guarantee quality, long term, committed donors.
With me you will get someone who understands that a charity’s name and reputation are its most valuable assets. Because of this I will always be professional when representing it. Indeed, the secret behind my success to date is my commitment to delivering excellence in everything I do.
When talking to people the language I use is always friendly and conversational. I reduce jargon to its absolute minimum and clearly explain specialist terms when I have to use them.
In my current role I work in partnership with our clients’ boards, management teams, volunteers and networkers to plan and manage all aspects of fundraising and development programmes. Through my career I have gained experience of street fundraising, door-to-door collections, telephone marketing and tailored direct mail campaigns.
Right now, I would like to work for a reputable institution like yours which only employs people who have the values and the drive similar to mine. In closing I would like to say how much I would appreciate an opportunity to meet up with you in person to discuss my application in more detail. Therefore, please feel free to contact me to arrange an interview at your convenience.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my application.
