Dear [Recipients Name],



We recently received your letter requesting donations for your annual Books For The Homeless program. . We do recognize the importance of this program and the work you do. Unfortunately because we have already expended our annual charitable giving budget we are not able to be of assistance to you this year. However, after posting your letter on our bulletin board numerous employees have commented that they would like to help either monetarily or with donations of books.

So we can include you in our budget next year please contact us early in the new fiscal year. We wish you great success with this drive and with your program.



Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
