Presentation Tips

Please be prepared to discuss your charity informally for about five minutes. Below is a helpful list of things that you may want to include in your presentation.

  • 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 do they serve, what do they do, how do they do it)
  • How would the organization benefit from our donation?
  • How will the funds be used?
  • What percentage of their budget is used for Program Expenses? (These are the costs related to providing services.)
  • Where do they get their current funding?
  • What is their annual budget?
  • How many employees do they have?  How many volunteers?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful
committed citizens could change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
~ Margaret Mead
