How to Ask Rich People For Money in 2014 (9 Steps)

knowing how to ask rich people for money is very useful because there are plenty of millionaires, billionaires and philanthropists all giving away money! (I'm Serious) If you’re experiencing hardship then why not ask rich people for help? As individuals become rich and wealthy they also become very generous and want to help people like you and me. Some of the most generous philanthropists are millionaires and billionaires who want to give money away. Some billionaires like Warren Buffett have even pledged to give their entire wealth away to help people all around the world. If you’re facing a challenge and have nowhere to turn to then you could ask rich people for help.

How to Ask Rich People for Money

Knowing how to ask rich people for money can make a tremendous impact on your life. If you are facing EXTREME hardship and want the resources to dig your way out of poverty then millionaires, billionaires and philanthropists are willing to help. Most of the requests for help come from fraudsters who want to make a quick buck, these requests for money are dismissed immediately. When a person has a genuine legitimate need these philanthropists are willing to help. 

Examples of Rich People Giving Away Money

If you still not convinced do a search for Craig Rowin who asked millionaires for money. This is a great example of rich people giving away money and proves that there is a chance to get help from millionaires. Craig created a YouTube money request video directed at rich people who give away money. The video went viral within a few weeks Craig Rowin secured a million dollar donation from a generous millionaire. It is entirely possible!

Step 1: Are You Really Experiencing Hardship

The first step to asking rich people for money is self reflection. Do you really need the money? Help will only be given to those that really need it, if you’re experiencing a genuine hardship and you’ve tried to sort yourself out and have sought public assistance then you could be eligible for help. A Genuine need would be help with medical treatment, medical bills, poverty, homelessness, disaster recovery, financial despair. If you’re going through one of these challenges then there is a good chance you’ll get help. Rich people giving money away are very sympathetic to the needs of those experiencing hardship. 

Step 2: Look for Rich People Looking to Give Away Money

The next step when asking rich people for money is to look for rich people who might be able to help you; if you look at rich lists such as the Forbes Philanthropy List, The Business Week Rich List or the Giving Pledge you’ll be able to find at least one hundred millionaires and billionaires who give money away. Some of the biggest donors include Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Kaiser, George Soros and Jeff Skoll.

Try to create a spreadsheet with all one hundred philanthropists and then take the time to read the profiles and the good causes that they support. This step might take time but it is definitely worth it, by researching deeper into the philanthropist’s background you’ll be able to determine which billionaires are most likely to support your hardship.

For example if you're looking for help towards furthering your education you could contact Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation. All these foundations help individuals to accomplish their dreams of furthering their education. Also if you're experiencing hardship you can contact the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, this organisation helps people experiencing financial despair and also runs a soup kitchen. You should also strive to make money yourself, if you are interested in taking charge and making some cash I would recommend reading - I Need 1000 Dollars Fast

Step 3: Names & Addresses of Rich People

Once you’ve got your list ranked in order of billionaires who are most likely to donate to you, your next step is to find the contact details of all these generous people. Finding the contact details should not take too long, you can either contact the charitable foundation they run or you could email and write to them direct. Once you’ve found the contact details make a note of this on your spreadsheet so that you can have a complete list. Finding the contact details of rich people giving away money might seem like a lot of work but it does eventually pay off. The more research you can do on millionaires giving money the more you will get to know about all the charitable foundations and programs which might help you.

Finding the contact details rich people who give money away for free is essential, you should also make a note of the charitable foundation which they run. Rich people prefer that you contact their organization before you contact them personally. You have a greater chance if you contact the organizations first and then apply for the various programs that they offer.

Step 4: Writing a Hardship Letter to Millionaires Giving Money

The next step is to write a hardship letter to the rich person and ask them for money, this is one of the most important steps and you should spend a lot of time perfecting your letter so that it communicates effectively with the millionaire you’re about to contact. A polished hardship letter should include your present circumstances and how you got into the hardship. The letter should also ask for financial assistance, ask for something in the region of $100 and don’t push your luck too much, finish the letter by describing how much of a difference this would make to your life. Take your time to make as many drafts as you need to perfect the letter until it represents your circumstances.

Again the preferred way to contact rich people who give money away is through their charitable foundation. You will stand a better chance of getting money if you find the right program for your circumstances. If you want to improve your career prospects then you could research of all the charitable foundations offering scholarship programs. There is a program for absolutely everything except for laziness! 

Step 5: Send the Hardship Letter to Rich People

Once you’ve perfected your hardship letter you need to send it to all the rich people on the list you compiled on your spreadsheet, you could mail merge the hardship letter with the spreadsheet so that you can print off all the letters quickly and efficiently rather than writing the names and addresses of each rich person. Once you’ve got all your letters address them in an envelope and send them off.

Don't forget to apply to all the programs which are offered through their foundation. You should enquire about scholarship programs, grant money programs, hardship programs and financial assistance programs.

Step 6: Waiting for a Response 

Unfortunately there is no guarantee that you’ll get help, these requests can take months to process and most of the time they want more information. It’s more effective to gradually work through your list so that you can eventually get a constant stream of letters either giving you a donation or not. Don’t be disorientated or disappointed if you’re rejected and just keep on trying. If I need money now I would look to raise cash fast by asking friends and family for help, I would also find ways to borrow money interest free using zero percent interest credit cards. My last resort to raise money quickly would be pay day loans. I discourage the use of payday loans however if you do need money quickly consider finding the best payday loans company by using comparison sites. 

Step 7: Ask Other Rich People for Help

Now that you have your hardship letter you can start contacting other people for help, you could start writing to local business, churches, and charities asking them for financial assistance. Local businesses love to help their community so sending a letter to all the businesses in your area might turn out to be very profitable. Churches and charities are often very generous when it comes to giving out clothes and food so you could save a lot of money.

Step 8: Ask the Public for Help

You can even take this one step further and post your letter online on cyber begging sites; these sites have helped countless people who’ve experienced hardship. All you have to do is copy your letter and publish it online and then use the power of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and to reach as many people as you can. If your hardship request goes viral then there is a very good chance you’ll make a lot of money.

Step 9: What to do With the Money

Eventually you’ll start to see money donations coming in, it’s important that you remind yourself why you needed the donation and use the money for that purpose, avoid going on spending sprees and use the money effectively. If you’ve been given more money that you need then stick this into a savings account so that you can use it as an emergency fund.

You should visit USA.Gov if need urgent financial assistance and financial help from the Government. You can apply for mortgage assistance programs, military financial assistance, financial assistance for pensioners and even debt consolidation and debt management advice.

How to Ask Rich People For Money 

Getting money from rich people is not a myth. A lot of requests for money do get denied because the sender does not have a legitimate genuine need. When people do have a genuine need some sort of help will be available. Millionaires, billionaires, celebrities and rich people who give money can be found almost everywhere. It seems everyone has a charitable foundation these days which means there is more money available for those who of us who need it. I have included some contact details of rich people who give money above so you can can start to Receive Financial Assistance.

  6. A Pleasant Good Day to all,

    My name is Abby. I am a single mom of four lovely kids. I lost my home due to foreclosure. I have a job with a minimum income and I am now seeking an additional job to increase my income. Meanwhile if I tell you it is tough IT IS TOUGH. I am struggling to make ends meet just to keep my little ones in school, clothes on their backs and food on the table. I share a home with my GF, her two kids and her Mom. It is their home. When I get a second job and increase my income, I will thank them for accommodating me, purchase a good supply of groceries for them and then find a place of my own. What I need now is some funds to get me through the next 3months since this will give me enough time to acquire a second job and make daycare arrangements. Anything will be greatly appreciated. I see other people posting here with more dire needs, some medical so if you are in a position and you feel willing to assist them then I will suggest you give them first priority over me anyday. So Thank you for your time. My name is Abby Williams c/o P.O.Box 1247, Port of Spain, Trinidad West Indies and my email is - Do have a blessed day.

  7. Hi, My name is Buthson Sokvisal. I am working as a Deputy Fire Officer based in Siem Reap International Airport. I am sending you this email aim to ask for help from you. I really need it for emergency. Currently I got debt about 30000$ with a very high interest. I have faced with it for years ago since my mother got uterus cancer and need a huge amount of money to treat her. Since then, I have borrowed money from private loan lender to treat her. Now I need to apply loan from you to pay off those private debt and it could make me easy to make the monthly repayment too. I am married and have a 1 year old son. I live near Siem Reap Airport. My monthly income is from 900$ to 1000$. So I am sure that I could make the monthly repayment to you if u could give me long term loan (5 or 6 years). After I pay all the capital to you, I will make donation to u every months to help you back. Please help me in the name of human being. I am now in a very very bad situation. We can earn the money back, but we could not earn the human life back. I said like this means that if there is no way out, only die is the last choice. Thanks in advance.
    Best Regard

  10. My mother and I desperately need help. To sum it up in a short paragraph because I know you are very busy, my father killed himself and it goes downhill from there. I was in a car accident which continues to cause me problems. On top of that our apartment burned down we lost everything we owned. I was assaulted by people I borrowed money from out of pure desperation. They broke my leg and several bones in my face. We are now facing eviction and our vehicle being repossessed. I want to go back to school to be a nurse practitioner and help people, however I owe the schools money and cannot get any type of loan because of these circumstances. We desperately need help and have no where to turn. I thank you for taking the time to read this. If there's anything that you can do to help us we would forever be grateful to you.
