    First imagine yourself standing in front of the minister. What would you say to him?

    Now write a letter saying the same thing.

    If you do this and post your letter in the forum, we can comment. For guidance on how to prepare the letter, see here: Formal Letter Writing - Articles - UsingEnglish.com

    Are you doing to donate the funds so that the church can purchase a new sound system? (pay for the entire installation, etc.)

    Or are you going to donate the actual set-up of a new sound system? (time and materials)

    You can offer to donate something, but you also must be sure that it is wanted.

    Hi! I'm not a teacher. You can post your writing here for people's suggestions further.

    If I were you, I would write to the minister about the points as below:

    First, I tell him my intention of writing the letter, that is to donate a sound system.

    Second, I tell him why I want to donate it. For instance, the sound system of the chapel doesn't work well or any reasons I have.

    Third, I detail what kind of sound system I am going to donate is, such as its condition, functions, features, appearance, etc. A picture is worth a thousand words. If possible, I would attach its picture.

    Finally, I ask him whether he is interested in it. If yes, I'd like to ask him how to donate it.
