Impact statement
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to use that money for ongoing operational support. Our funds are low this year and any amount saved will help us get through the fiscal year.

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
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a mission and vision statement, and institutional goals, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a strategic plan, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

I am a new executive director with little experience being in front of potential funders and partners. I need assistance honing in on a pitch that clearly articulates our organization's needs. I also need assistance in prioritizing the things that are simultaneously important to us and appealing to funders.
