   School Trip Hardship Letter

Dear {teacher/administrator},

As you may know, my child {Name} has been working hard for {time period} to raise funds for the school trip to {location}. I never imagined my child could peddle so many {raffle tickets/tubs of cookie dough}!

Unfortunately, we will not be able to have the entire family contribution amount of {amount} ready by the due date of {date}. We only have {amount}. Might you consider making an exception and allow us more time to get the money together? My child has been looking forward to this trip for so long, and I don't have the heart to tell them they can't go. I'm confident that we can make the full payment by {date}.

I don't know if you've heard it through the grapevine, but our family recently experienced an extreme hardship that impacted our finances. {Situation}.
