My name was drawn! What should I say about my charity?

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

  • 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 (e.g., who, what do they do, how do they do it)?

  • How would the organization benefit from receiving the donation?

  • How will the funds be used?

  • Who is responsible for discharging funds?

  • What are their administrative fees? (Hint: they should not have any!)

  • From where does their current funding come?

  • Are they a recognized 501(c)3?

  • What is their annual budget?

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