Dear XYZ,

I would like your approval to attend the three-day Bridges Out of Poverty certification training.

The certification training will provide me an opportunity to connect with more than 100 individuals from different states, cities, and sectors wanting to deepen their understanding of Bridges Out of Poverty. The three days are dedicated to providing me the tools necessary to return to our agency/partners and immediately provide the workshop, which will help us to continue to work at building our Bridges initiative.

I’ve broken down the approximate costs of my attendance:

Airfare:                                                            $XYZ
Hotel:                                                               $XYZ (see “Accommodations” tab)
Lifetime certification:                                   $1,299
Total:                                                  $xxx 

Thank you for your consideration of this request. aha! Process has used Duffy Travel to negotiate a discounted rate at the hotel if I book early.

Submitted with high hopes,


Coming soon.
