How To Present

The most effective presentation is one that is informal and simple. More information is great, but remember to limit your presentation to 5 minutes. A personal story and reason why the charity is important to you makes a great impact.

Here is a list of topics that you should be prepared to discuss:

  • What is the name of the organization?

  • Where is the organization located?

  • What is the mission of the organization?

  • What purpose does the organization serve? (who are they? what do they do? how do they do it?)

  • How would the organization benefit from receiving the donation?

  • How will the funds be used?

  • What other sources of funding does the organization have (i.e. how needy is the organization)?

  • Can they issue tax receipts?

  • If chosen, to whom would the group make a check payable?

  • Describe your personal interactions with the organization or how you learned of the organization.
