How do I decline a request for sponsorship?

Hello, many thanks for your time. I work with an investment company and we manage funds on behalf of a sports betting company. We recently got a request to sponsor their sports betting event. Not only can we not afford it, but we are not sure we want to put our brand behind an event that can be viewed as supporting 'gambling'.

What should my letter to our employee contain if we are declining his request of having an incentive?

He requested that aside from his base rate if he could have an additional incentive or an amount that is tax shielded just like the other employee, but we cannot accommodate that right now because we are having an alignment on our basis of every employees rate. But on the next cycle of our evaluation we can already accommodate his request. Thanks!

Decline request for supply of technical resources on contract basis?

Company called for technical resources for contract employment on their rolls earlier. They will treat our resources and put false allegations. After a gap of one year they once again called for resource employment. We do not wish to oblige them. We need a convincingly polite letter declining their request due the head of that department.. I have tried: We called back our resources and we have to incur losses and failed to get the resources to another job opportunity.. I think it was caused by: The recruitment in-charge is a very mischievous character. Also expects bribe, which is not our policy.
