For grant purposes it is important that we have completed evaluations from youth leaders. Likewise, it is extremely important that we have endorsement letters from professionals, such as yourself, who can attest to the life-enriching value of our work, and who can specifically focus on one or two “stories of personal impact” of the youth in your group, as it relates to their Bessie’s Hope experience. Please use your professional letterhead, or in the case of youth groups such as Girl Scouts, Group Leaders may use their personal letterhead. In your letter, please address topics such as, enhanced self-worth, leadership, character-building, tolerance and empathy, reading, writing, and other academic achievements.
You are appreciated, Sharron Brandrup, Co-founder and Executive Director
