Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining feedback on pitch delivery with suggested next steps and/or resources
  • A script for a 1-minute verbal pitch that communicates your Organization's mission, work, and why people should care
Additional Details

I am looking for an Elevator Pitch Coach to help me take our organization's mission, values, and vast range of services and create an informative yet digestible elevator pitch that will be effective in yielding monetary or in-kind support.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a vast array of marketing materials and informational videos, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a responsive team member who is eager to learn, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to expand and enhance mental health treatment and restorative programming for foster youth and their families in Michigan.

I am the Manager of Grants and Compliance at my organization, tasked with communicating verbally and in writing the importance of Vista Maria's mission. While I have (to an extent) mastered communicating our organization's many elements in writing, I am looking for a coach who will help me wrap this information into a 1-minute elevator pitch that is both informative and digestible to an audience of potential corporate and foundation partners.
