    Question To whom it may concern

    I'm not a teacher.

    When you address a letter to an organism and you start with "To whom is may concern", can you write "Dear Sirs" for the beggining of the text?

    Tku.

    Hopefully you are writing a letter to an organization, not an organism.

    You don't use both. The letter starts with the salutation of either Dear Sirs, or To Whom It May Concern, or possibly "Dear Sir/Madam"

    Your text is just the text.

    In French the word for organisation is organism, perhaps this persons first language is French. I agree with yoiur answer to the question.
