How do I get to the final pitch stage?

All first round participants are eligible to move on to the final ‘Fast Pitch.’ A combination of coach/mentor feedback, Fast Pitch Committee Review, and input from the Sacramento Region Community Foundation will be used to determine which organizations will pitch for a chance to win cash and in-kind support. Organizations that do not attend mandatory training dates may not be eligible for Fast Pitch.
