Collections Letter

Towards the end of your fundraiser, you might have a few students who still owe money for their chocolate.

It is a good idea to send a polite, but firm reminder home to the parents that prompt payment is required.

Here is a sample letter you can edit:

Dear _________, 

Thank you for participating in our school fundraiser. As a reminder, you agreed to sell World’s Finest Chocolate, and pledged to return $60 to the school for the box of chocolate your child received.

Unfortunately, your child will not be able to participate in any of the prizes or activities promised as rewards for selling chocolate unless the debt is paid in full by [DATE]. 

We will accept a payment schedule that will work for you, weekly or monthly, if you are unable to deliver the total sum at one time. Please call our office and ask for ____________ at XXX_XXX_XXXX to discuss how you plan to make the payment. 

Thank you for your immediate attention. 

Sincerely,
