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 trying to reach new donors, both private and corporate but also get whoever is listening, to care about the issue.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have pitch deck, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have photos and video and instagram, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,792 , allowing us to reach more children in underserved communities.

This project will literally allow us to raise money. Just as important as the program is our ability to pitch the idea.
