Cocktail parties and elevator rides will never be the same after you join us for this insightful, dynamic workshop. Learn from your peers as we listen to a variety of pitches, after which an expert panel of judges — including real-life philanthropists and grantmakers — will provide candid feedback on what’s hitting home, what needs tweaking, why, and even how. You may even witness a few pitch remixes, where our seasoned message mavens rework and recite a tightened up version of spiels in real time, just before they award an exciting prize to two top finishers.

Interested in competing in the pitchathon? Here’s how to apply.
