Follow-up Request on Pay Raise Letter

You have created the perfect pay raise letter and sent it to your boss. Unfortunately, he ignores it and doesn't bother to email you back. Maybe its time for a more frank approach with this Follow-up Salary Increase sample letter.

Dear HR Officer

Good day!

I know you are very busy, but it has been a two weeks and I have received no response from you about my recent letters regarding my pay raise request. I would like to set up a meeting with you discussing my employment status at the marketing department.

To be honest, I can’t think of any other job I’ve enjoyed more in my career, and being part of Brand X commodities has been a true learning experience. I appreciate the trust and confidence the company has place in me through the past 14 months and I believe I have done everything possible to maintain that trust by meeting all expectations and soul-crushing deadlines.

I would really appreciate any update from the management or any concerns they might have about my request.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.

Respectfully yours,

Sean Roberts

Sample Charity Fund Drive Letter

Every possible donation to a fund-drive counts, so a solicitation letter outlining the charity's goals and vision can help you get the message across and the support you need. Refer to the sample fund drive solicitation letter below:

To Whom It May Concern:

Good day!

My name is Lilith Jones, one of the volunteers from the San Marino Child Care Center. As part of our community activities for the year, we are launching a fund drive for outpatient facilities in General Pediatric, Nephrology Clinic, Diet & Nutrition, Neonatal Care and Social Services for the Bay Area Children's Medical Center. In line with this, we are inviting you to become a sponsor in this advocacy project entitled "Help the Babies at the Bay".

The fund drive has been a yearly tradition of the San Marino Child Care Center to reach out into the Bay area community. We would like to present our advocacy project as an opportunity for you to extend your goodwill, by helping in providing better medical facilities for young mothers and mothers on social welfare support.

Should you express interest in making this vision a reality, please do not hesitate to send a reply to this e-mail or through the contact details indicated below.

Lilith and Davy Jones

Thank you for your support!

Sample Plea Letter to Judge for Leniency

A basic Plea letter asking for Leniency. Most plea letters are very detailed, so when writing one make sure to outline the important details about the person and her case, be mindful of dates and the key persons involved.

To District Court Judge,

We, the undersigned, support Janine Margaret Manson's plea for leniency and her petition for satisfaction of judgment.

There is reasonable doubt that she commited the crime for which he was originally charged and convicted, and we believe that her behavior since her imprisonment has been exemplary.

We hereby ask the district judge assigned to her case to extend leniency to a woman who was never been truly proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and to declare that Janine Margaret Manson has fulfilled her punishment and has paid her debt to society.

Janine is absolutely no threat to anyone inside or outside the prison fence and promises to be an ideal citizen of North City if given the opportunity. Please restore our hope in justice, and send Janine home to her children.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.


Payment Request Letter for Services

Clients have selective amnesia particularly when it comes to bills involving services (hard labor, man hours, contract work). Its easier for them to pay for tangible items because the thing will always serve as a constant reminder of what they've bought and are still paying for. Now if you are a service industry professional or contractor, this sample letter may be just what you need to get that payment settled.

Dear Miss Jovens,

As of May 20, we have received no response on our previous requests regarding the payment on invoice #10-555-20. This bill is being served for services rendered at your estate at 35-D Magnolia Drive which includes - topiary, gardening, weeding and pest control.

The service was approved according to your specifications and achieved on time as scheduled. Attached is the copy of the approval form of which you have signed on all service dates.

Since this invoice is now past our terms of net 30 days, please remit your payment via wire transfer, credit card or check today.

Sample Billing & Collection Letter Requesting Payment

Follow-up Letter for Customer to pay up on overdue bill via wire transfer.

Dear Miss Anders,

I want to follow up our recent email exchange to remind you of our terms of sale and payment due dates. Your account now has an outstanding balance of $5,389, which is 180 days past due.

We have provided you an invoice for each purchase, and that invoice states the date payment is due in our office. Additionally, we send a monthly statement detailing all unpaid items. Your cooperation in remitting payment according to these agreed-upon terms is essential in continuing to do business with us.

It is my understanding your account is set up on our TIB (The Independent Bankers Bank)program whereby you can have the money wired from your bank account to ours. If you are having a problem with the program, please let us know.

We want to continue serving you on a credit basis; however, we need your cooperation. Therefore, we strongly urge you to remit payment according to the terms we agreed upon.

Please do confirm your acceptance by forwarding the Payment Receipt to me via fax 453-555 as soon as possible.

Yours truly,
