Nonprofits Have a Story ~
Fast Pitch Helps Them Tell It.
The SVP Fast Pitch Process
Fast Pitch applications launched April 1st of each year. The application remains open through mid-May for nonprofits to apply.
SVP Fund Partners review applications and select top 18 organizations to participate in the annual Fast Pitch cohort.
Kick off the Fast Pitch season with our annual FP Launch Golf Tournament at Serrano Country Club. Each nonprofit hosts a tee box and has opportunities meet and mingle with Partners, Sponsors, and Fast Pitch Coaches.
The new class members will join us for our Annual Fast Pitch Alumni Dinner. It will be a great opportunity to connect with others who've been through the program as well as many of our partners and coaches.
August - October
Fast Pitch Workshops - nonprofits are paired with two local business executives who serve as Coaches to help them tell their story.
Fast Pitch Showcase - top eight nonprofits go on stage to share their 3-minute polished pitch with an audience who is there to financially and socially support their efforts.
