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

We need pitch coaching for our org and specific programs, including the CPCP program, which asks the community to donate devices.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a new website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a fact sheet, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to put time and money back into the community.

Our org pitch and program pitches need to be tight so that we can confidently speak with partners and potential donors effectively.
