Tips on Presenting Your Charity

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 charity nomination?  

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


Share Your Charity'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 charity, 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 charity and persuading the chapter to vote for it is a VERY GOOD thing to do!
