Recognizing the increasing competition for funding in the non-profit sector, Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region is excited to present Perfect Pitch: Waterloo Region’s only pitch-coaching program for the non-profit sector.
Perfect Pitch is a free communication skills training program for local charities, to help them share their organization’s story and impact with power, passion and clarity in less than 5 minutes, in order to increase awareness and become more efficient fundraisers.
How it works
Perfect Pitch offers non-profit leaders the skills they need to powerfully communicate their story and impact in a less-than-5-minute “perfect pitch”.
Over the course of three 2-hour sessions, participants learn about the elements of an effective pitch. Each organization is paired with a team of SVPWR Partners who offer individual coaching, practice opportunities and feedback along the way.
Perfect Pitch culminates in a public showcase of the pitches, where charities have the opportunity to present to an audience of community members, business leaders and funders for a chance at cash awards, and to raise awareness of the important work they’re doing.
