Write a letter to your father for asking money to buy books

Dear Dad,

I hope this letter finds you doing well. I am writing to ask you for some financial assistance in order to purchase textbooks for my upcoming semester in college. With tuition, supplies and other costs, I find that I am running short on funds. I know you have always encouraged me to work hard and be self-sufficient, and this is why I am coming to you for help.

I am confident that once I get the textbooks, I will be able to make up the cost with the money I am earning from my part-time job. I am grateful for all the support you have given me throughout my schooling, and I promise to make you proud by doing my best in college.

Thank you for considering my request.

Your loving daughter
