a sample letter requesting support to attend FSCon15!

Subject: Proposal to attend the FrontStream Philanthropy Solutions Conference
I would like to request the approval to attend the 2015 FrontStream Philanthropy Solutions Conference,
which takes place June 8th to 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Attending the conference will provide me a valuable professional development opportunity, while
improving my fundraising knowledge and skills. By attending, I will:
1) Get hands-on training on (FrontStream CRM / FrontStream Workplace Philanthropy /
FrontStream Fundraising / FirstGiving) from the company’s product experts. This also includes
previews of the features coming in the near future.
2) Learn about workplace giving through corporations like Visa, Costco and FedEx. This can help us
develop more impactful corporate partnerships.
3) Gain insights from the latest trends and data shared at the conference. There will also be great
success stories to hear from major nonprofits like the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the
United Way, and chances to learn best practices from organizations similar to ours.
Below is an estimation of the costs that would be incurred to attend this conference:
Registration Fee (Early bird pricing until May 8)
Hotel (2 nights @ Conference Rate)
As it relates to our everyday work, I believe that attending FSCon will help me on the following projects:
 Project 1
 Project 2
 Project 3
Thank you for your time and considering my request.
