If you are considering writing to rich and famous people who give away money, you need to realize you have a slim chance of getting any form of financial assistance from these millionaires. Still, if you are trying to raise money for a charity or for yourself, you might want to give it a try and see what happens. In this article, I’ll go over some sample letters you can send out to the wealthy people that help others, after you make a few small alterations to fit your personal needs. When you contact them, ask for help. If you get a response, be sure to thank them for their help and assistance, so they know you truly appreciated it.
Contacting Millionaires Who Give Away Money – Letter Sample
Mr. Buffet (or other rich person),
I am writing to you to ask for your assistance. I have fallen on hard times recently and don’t feel I have any chance of getting out of financial ruin. It pains me to write to you and ask for help, but with a family to raise, I feel I have no other choice.
My husband was laid off (or suffered medical emergency, lawsuit, etc.) almost two years ago from a decent job. He is currently working two jobs, both near minimum wage, to try to make ends meet. I am also working fulltime, but we are not able to make our mortgage payment and are in danger of foreclosure.
Is there any chance you could help us out? We would pay you back, but I really cannot tell you how long it will take or commit to specific amounts right now. In order to get our mortgage current and pay off our outstanding medical bills, we need about $10,000, but would humbly accept any amount.
Please consider us carefully. I know you have done a lot of philanthropic work in the past and hope you can help us out.
Writing Rich and Famous People for Money – Charitable Group
Ms. Oprah Winfrey (or other philanthropic wealthy person)
I represent the ABC charity. We raise money for cancer research and hold a local event each year, which includes a banquet supper, dance, and fundraising auction. Last year, we were able to donate $3,000 to help find a cure for this terrible disease.
We fully realize you must get many requests like this one asking for assistance. We ask you to consider us strongly as you make donations. If you cannot give us any money, some signed memorabilia or similar items would be greatly appreciated, so we can auction them off to raise money.
You can verify our group online as we are mentioned in our local newspaper each year for our work to give money to cancer research.

If you write either of these letters to contact rich and famous millionaires who give away money to the poor and needy, you must first adjust them to suit your personal needs.
