Philanthropitch Philadelphia 2022 will be hosted on September 20, 2022

Philanthropitch’s signature pitch competition program provides nonprofit organizations with knowledge, collaboration, and capital to scale their impact. Competition finalists receive 1:1 coaching and educational workshops as part of Philanthropitch’s intensive training program. The Philanthropitch program culminates in a live pitch event where finalists have the opportunity to receive funding and exposure to new donors, supporters, and mentors that will support their impact efforts well beyond the competition. Past supporters have included Google, TD Bank, H-E-B, and Hulu.

Our mission is to provide knowledge, collaboration, capital and exposure for innovative nonprofits to scale impact.

Philanthropitch was founded in 2013 as an internal, community engagement program at BuildASign, a startup in Austin, Texas. Philanthropitch has since launched into a national nonprofit platform, supporting over 135 nonprofits and facilitating over $2 million in donations. We are proud to work alongside nonprofit organizations, corporations, foundations, and business leaders in Austin, San Antonio, Columbus, and Philadelphia to create sustainable and scalable impact.
