Sponsor Request Letter
Dear Potential Sponsor/Donator,
The Central Maryland Shockers is an AAU registered, basketball, and academic organization
based out of Columbia, Maryland- Howard County that provides year-round basketball instruction
and experience for children between the ages of 8-18. We are committed to the development and
empowerment of future leaders/athletes by using basketball as a tool to improve health and
fitness, excel in academia, develop life skills and values, and to become well-rounded, productive
citizens in society. The most important part we want to provide for our kids is FUN!!!
As in all non-profit youth sports programs, fund raising has become necessary to offset the cost of
maintaining a quality program. Since the start of our program 10 months ago, we have raised
money through car washes, raffles, and various donations from family and friends. We are
contacting you to ask if you would be willing to make a monetary donation that will directly
contribute to and offset the cost of the program’s 40+ youth members. Our primary revenue source
is registration fees paid by families and donations received from generous individuals and
businesses. Since these funds do not cover all of the operating expenses, families often must raise
their own funds to pay for equipment, training fees, field rentals, travel, and tournament entry fees.
The average cost per player per year to participate is between $600-$750, particularly difficult for
families with more than one player and/or modest means.
In order to continue to make this rewarding experience a reality for our kids we are reaching out
directly to area businesses, families, and friends, and offering the opportunity to help by becoming
a team sponsor! In return for your support, you will be recognized on our webpage and 100% of
the proceeds from your donation will go directly to The Central Maryland Shockers and provide
equipment, uniforms, league fees, player liability insurance, facility usage and overall operations.
On behalf of the players, coaches and families of the Central Maryland Shockers, we sincerely
appreciate your contribution and generous support. Please contact us if you have further question
regarding our organization.
P.S. For tax-reporting purposes, all checks must be made payable to the “Central Maryland
