SlideRocket is excited to announce the 2012 SlideRocket “Make an Impact” Non-profit Presentation Contest! $30,000 in donations will be awarded! The five (5) non-profit presentations that get the most views and have the best story will each receive donation prizes.

To enter, simply create a SlideRocket presentation about the 501(c)(3) non-profit of your choice and share it with as many people as possible.

The contest is open to staff at 501(c)(3) non-profits as well as people who would like to support their favorite non-profit by winning the contest on their behalf.

    It’s an awesome idea, but I bet someone will use this thing just to gain a Pro account.

    Hi,
    I just wondering, does this contest is open worldwide or is it exclusively to the USA ? I’m from Canada and I’m on Muscular Dystrophie Canada comittee (Local Division). It could be a great price to the foundation.

    The same question as Philippe, is this contest worldwide?

    Given the structure of the foundation that the funds are coming from, this contest is for US-based 501(c)3s only. That said, you can still enter and get the benefits of a free Pro account, and help spread the word for your organization to drive donations/action. You just won’t be eligible to win.

    the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
