									To Whom It May Concern:

The Ohio Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities (GCPD) will be hosting
our 10th Annual Youth Leadership Forum (YLF). The YLF is a four day event for
selected Ohio high school juniors and seniors, who have disabilities, who have
demonstrated leadership ability. This year the forum will be held July 14th – 17th,
2008. During the YLF students meet successful adults with disabilities and
develop their own “Leadership Plan” among other activities that contribute to
leadership development. Last year thirty-three students (delegates) representing
26 cities and 14 counties throughout Ohio attended the 2007 YLF.* Therefore
your contribution will directly impact members of your community and our state.

We would like to extend to you the opportunity to become a “2008 YLF” sponsor.
There are two types of sponsorships in which your organization/business can
provide they are; monetary and promotional (please read the descriptions below).

   •   Monetary donations will be used for American Sign Language
       interpreters, personal care assistants, transportation, brail, other
       reasonable accommodations, and the Mentor Luncheon with a well known
       keynote speaker.**

   •   Promotional items with your organization/business logos to fill memento
       goody bags. Examples of donated items previously include:
       Water bottles, calculators, mugs, address books, Disposable
       cameras, gift certificates, and travel alarm clocks
Your organization will receive recognition through public relations
announcements and YLF written program guides. More importantly, you will be
reaching a new audience; talented and goal oriented youths with disabilities, who
are often overlooked and undervalued. Lastly, these students will realize a wealth
of knowledge and experiences from participation in the forum that when put into
practice will benefit all of our communities. If you are able to invest in Ohio’s
future leaders then we would appreciate receiving your tax deductible gift by May
26th, 2008.

Ohio in 1999; for success stories please contact YLF Coordinator, James
