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 have a mission statement and two specific programs that we are looking for help developing concise value-statements for in an effort to fundraise more widely and effectively. They are both arts accessibility programs for underserved constituents in our neighborhood of West Philadelphia.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to continue and grow Arts Accessibility programs for students and neighbors.

We offer two immensely popular cost-free programs that increase arts accessibility in our neighborhood. We need to find consistent, wide-reaching, diverse funding sources to keep these programs vibrant and active - serving as many constituents as are interested.
