Tips on Presenting Your Non-Profit

You'll have 5 to 7 minutes, including questions & answers...

 

Be Prepared

  • Ask yourself:  What are the key points I want chapter members to know about my non-profit nomination?  

  • Prepare brief, concise key points and share them in the course of your talk. 

 

Share Your Non-Profit's Information 

  • Formal name and location

  • Mission of the organization 

  • Specific use of the monies if the charity is selected

  • Annual budget amount 

  • Number of clients supported 

  • Explain the measurements that will be used to ensure success of the program

     

Start Strong and Keep it Simple   

  • The beginning of your presentation is crucial. Have an engaging opening.

  • Give chapter members the information needed to select your nominee.  

  • Use notes, handwritten or electronic, to keep you on track.

  • Smile, Make Eye Contact, and Project Your Voice

 

Save Time for Questions from Chapter Members

  • A timekeeper will let you know how much time you have left.    

  • Focus on directly answering their questions and need for information.  Going off on tangents takes away powerful persuasion time!

  • If you don’t know something, it is okay to say something like “I’m not sure of the full answer; here is some information that may be helpful to you.”

  • Don’t be surprised if other chapter members chime in support and answers of something you may not know!

 

Close with a Heartfelt “Ask”, and a Thank You  

  • Think about why you have nominated the non-profit, and why it is important to YOU for them to receive the donation.  Your enthusiasm is contagious!

AND, Relax, Breathe and Have Fun!  

  • Nominating a non-profit and persuading the chapter to vote for it is a VERY GOOD thing to do!
