Thank you for being part of our Bridging the Gap Campaign! Together, we are Bridging the Gap (BTG) to make sure all in Travis County are connected to the care they need to live a healthy life. While federal, state, and local grants and contracts fund the majority of Integral Care’s services, our donors help us address system gaps and provide additional support to build our clients’ whole health.

We invite all BTG Committee members to “Dial for Dollars” each week based on the Google Doc.

Below are samples to be used as guidelines only. You are the expert when contacting prospective sponsors and know the best approach to solicit funds. Telling your personal story about why you support Integral Care can be very impactful.

Sponsorship letter (cut & paste into email)

Dear ______,

I’m reaching out to see if you would pledge to be a sponsor for our upcoming Bridging the Gap event on March 29, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM at Swoop House. I invite you to be a {FILL IN SPONSOR LEVEL}. Your pledge will help give us the momentum to reach our $150,000 fundraising goal.

During the Bridging the Gap event, we are celebrating all that our staff have achieved over the past few years while raising funds to support the lifesaving, critical work they do daily. At Integral Care, we’re in the business of making Healthy Living for Everyone a reality. Over the last couple of years, we have been met with significant challenges, yet our team rose to meet each one. From the impact of COVID-19 to the devastation of Winter Storm Uri and the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Integral Care staff were there to make sure our community had the mental health care they needed, all while dealing with their own hardships. Our staff are the backbone of everything we do, going above and beyond to support health and well-being within our community. When staff can provide much needed support to our clients, staff feel fulfilled and take pride in their abilities.
