SVP Tucson is ecstatic to announce the 15 nonprofit organizations that will participate in our inaugural FAST PITCH program.

In addition to these 15 outstanding organizations, we are offering the FAST PITCH program to our current Investees,
Tucson Youth Development and Old Pueblo Community Services. While our Investees will not be eligible to be FAST PITCH finalists. They will reap the rewards of communication and community building that are inherent in the program. We are delighted to include them in this process.
Through the FAST PITCH program, the designated point person for each of these organizations will learn to more powerfully and succinctly communicate their important story, while at the same time connecting them to the leaders of the business and funding communities who can help grow their organizations. This opportunity is offered at no cost to participants.
SVP Tucson could not be more grateful to all of the FAST PITCH applicants. The value of service, artistry and support each entity provides in Tucson and beyond is unparalleled. We at SVP Tucson and our Selection Committee members were so grateful to have the opportunity to learn about what they do, how and why they do it.
