Review proper format and content for letters in both your textbook and within Desire2Learn’s “Grading Standards General” section.
Imagine you are a new hire at Portland Community College (PCC). You work in the public relations office. Your manager assigned you to prepare a grant letter to the Apple Corporation. Your goal is to persuade Apple to donate 30 iPads to the PCC business department for use in an on campus BA 205 Business Communication class. The proposal is that iPads will be checked out to students each term. Students will learn how to use iPads’ technologies to organize business information.
As a new hire you want to be successful in this assignment. If you feel it’s necessary, contact your manager (the instructor) to discuss any questions you have, and be sure to give me two business days to respond.
Where to Find Product Information

Write A Persuasive Letter In the Manner Described by the Textbook

Prefer short sentences with word counts less than 20 words.
Remember no mixed verb tenses.
Check noun and pronoun agreements.
Use the active voice.

Deliver coherent logic. Add nothing that distracts from your main point.
Use the conversational writing style recommended for an effective business letter.
Delete word-padding (extra words).
