Dear Potential Sponsor:

Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church is a nearly 59 year old community of faith that is still thriving and
serving the community in the new millennium. Within the past eight years, we have seen over 8,000 new
individuals unite with our church. We have witnessed the implementation of new ministries, new programs,
increased revenues, and undeniable results. Yet, we are not through! Our explosive growth and quest to
effectively minister to the masses has forced us to embrace the idea of "Expansion" and this commitment is
now known as "The Legacy Project". This innovative complex is designed to unite church, commerce, and
community. The concept is an ambitious, yet attainable commitment to building people while also building
the community simultaneously. This expansion endeavor will be executed through Fellowship’s Educational,
Economic Development, Inc. (FEED), Fellowship’s community development corporation.

The Legacy Project's vision for a new campus encapsulates state-of-the-art facilities designed to meet the
capacity to serve the community in a holistic manner. We also hope to add value sociologically and
economically by providing senior housing, while also galvanizing partnerships and establishing branded
commercial facilities that will enable us to provide an estimate of 500 new jobs and maximize wealth creation
in this desolate and underserved area.

Our current thrust focuses on the nearly fifteen acre site at 8522 South Lafayette. This massive land base will
enable us to turn an eyesore into a glistening oasis inclusive of a church campus, professional office space,
viable branded hotels, a water park, conference center, restaurants, and some practical retail.

On Friday, September 18, 2009, we will launch our first annual Legacy Gala at the historic Field Museum.
The magnitude of this endeavor speaks volumes to our commitment to improving the quality of life for our
community, our constituents and our neighbors through economic development and empowerment. By
engaging the Legacy Project’s enlarged concept of serving the community in a holistic manner, we are hopeful
that you will consider joining the movement by coming in as a contributor at whichever sponsorship level is
most comfortable for you or your organization. Please Fellowship, Comedian George Wallace and other
special guests for a spectacular evening of entertainment, elegance and edification.

We are excited about the future of the Legacy Project and the opportunity to revitalize our community. The
enclosed sponsorship packet has been provided for your reply. If you have any questions regarding the
various sponsorship levels, please contact Mundi Griffin at (773) 451-3801 or mgriffin@fmbcship.org. I look
forward to seeing you on September 18th, 2009!

Warmest regards,
