whats the perfect general letter introduction?
I am trying to write a donation letter to wide group of people and i want the opening to be general enough for the large group but not impersonal. So im trying to find something better than "to whom it may concern," or "dear sir/maam". the letter is asking for donations for a trip i am going on to Africa in February with my volunteer organization.
thank you so much for the help

You should appeal to the quality that you hope these people posess - the quality that would make them be a likely donor. Additionally, you should also not use the traditional : even though it is a formal letter. You might even take it further by showing non-traditional enthusiasm in the greeting, using an exclamation point rather than a comma. Like so:
Greetings generous neighbor!
Find something you have in common with this group:
Greetings fellow student!
Greetings fellow Africa lover!
