Check out this idea from our friends at Build-A-Sign. Based after the popular fast pitch idea, they are hosting a Philanthropitch for nonprofits. (Full Disclosure: Their CEO is on the Lights. Camera. Help. Board). Philanthropitch is an event for select Austin-area nonprofits to showcase their organization, its impact on the community, and present a specific need (in less than 5 minutes) to a panel of Austin’s most successful community leaders in order to secure cash prizes for their mission. Any nonprofit can apply starting April 1st to participate in the pitch event taking place on May 29th. Visit www.philanthropitch.com to apply & learn more. Interested? Tell us why in the comments.
