Sample Letter for Campaign

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to you as a constituent and as a supporter of the University of Illinois.  I know that the state is facing a severe economic crisis and understand that the legislature is facing very tough decisions.  However, I want to voice my strong support for funding for the University of Illinois.

Please ensure that the funds invoiced to the state from the University of Illinois are paid on time and the amount owed stays minimal.  Ensure that the University’s operating funds are increased so this institution is able to function at the highest capacity possible and programs are not cut due to lack of funding.  Investing state funds into the University will reap great benefits for the state.  In fact, a recent study indicated that the University of Illinois system produces more than $13 billion in direct and indirect impact on the state of Illinois, including the creation of more than 150,000 jobs, plus educating our workforce.

The University is one of Illinois’ most valuable assets.  I hope that the resources can be found to preserve and protect the operating and capital budget proposals for the University of Illinois.  Thank you for your hard work and support.
