Oral Presentation


Sometimes funders ask for oral presentations (or "pitches") of grant proposals. This is your chance to present your request for funding using additional modes of rhetoric--visual, gestural, spatial, and aural. Your audience for this presentation will be (at least in theory) your funder. You may invite representatives from your non-profit to attend your presentation if you'd like.



Presentations should include

  • the basic components of a grant proposal (problem/solution/cost/project overview/background information, etc) and should be persuasive--you want them to fund your project.

  • visual aids of your choice (eg, power point, Prezi, video, sock puppets)

Time: 10 minutes

Dress: As though you were presenting to the board of directors of a foundation

Rubric: I will use the following rubric to evaluate the presentations.
