Elevator Pitch Coaching

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

Our organization has been around for 1 year and are reaching out to new potential funders. We need a pitch that we can deliver confidently that covers a range of our work.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a mission statement and a sample pitch, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time to commit to this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to provide more low-cost training to working class black and brown organizers.

We have had a successful first year as an organization and are poised to scale considerably if we can secure more resources. Establishing a strong pitch will give us the confidence to go after new funders and donors.
