2019 Live Pitch Parties

pitch parties

Have a great idea that you’re trying to bring to life? Looking to make connections that could help propel your ideas forward? Then mark the following Pitch Party dates on your calendar!

  • March 18 (Awesome Funders for Awesome Projects event)
  • June 17* (deadline May 31)
  • October 21 (deadline September 30)

Three times a year, we invite 3-4 finalists for our monthly grants to pitch their ideas to a live audience of trustees, friends, fans, and special guest judges from the neighborhood. This gives our larger community a chance to hear about some of the amazing proposals we receive every month. That month’s grant winner is then chosen and announced at the event!

To be eligible to pitch your idea for a chance to win $1000, submit your proposal by the deadlines stated above. Then mark your calendar for that month’s Pitch Party in case you are selected as a finalist. Pitch contestants are contacted at least a week before the event.

*The live Pitch event on June 17 will focus on Social Justice. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more details and venue locations for each date.
