Presentation Tips

We have seen many different presentations. The most effective presentation is one that is informal and simple. The more information you can provide is great but remember you only have 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:

    1. What is the name of the organization?
    1. Where is the organization located?
    1. What is the mission of the organization?
    1. What purpose does the organization serve? (who are they, what do they do, how do they do it)
    1. How would the organization benefit from receiving the donation?
    1. How will the funds be used?
    1. What other sources of funding does the organization have (i.e. how needy is the organization)?
    1. Can they issue tax receipts?
    1. If chosen, to whom would the group make a check payable to?
    1. Describe your personal interactions with the organization or how you learned of the organization.
