December 4th, 2020
While 2020 has certainly brought challenge to our lives, it has also brought opportunity. The Fast Pitch program is one area where our team of partners and staff have been working diligently to turn the challenges of 2020 into opportunities to support Tucson’s nonprofit community in even more significant ways!
The Fast Pitch Selection committee has completed their work, and we are excited to announce the 10 nonprofits who will participate in Fast Pitch 2021. Check out the nonprofit leaders endearing reactions as they learned that they will be a part of this life changing experience!
The Selection Committee consisted of a team of 17 partners and community members who reviewed 47 applications (the most ever!) and selected these 10 nonprofits. We are excited to welcome them as the Fast Pitch Class of 2021!
• Boys and Girls Club
• Boys to Men
• Make Way for Books
• Native Music Coalition
• Second Chance
• Sunnyside Foundation
• TMM Family Services
• Therapeutic Riding of Tucson
• YWCA Southern Arizona

Rest assured, we are planning a dynamic and exciting virtual experience and you won’t want to miss it! With your virtual ticket, you receive access to participate in the Power to the People Audience Choice Award. This exciting award is decided by text-to-vote and access is granted with your ticket purchase. Additionally, if in-person tickets become available, you will be the first to know and given an opportunity to upgrade.
To prepare for the Fast Pitch event, these 10 nonprofit leaders will participate in a redesigned and even more robust training program. The program includes an enhanced “pitch” training, and additional support in fundraising and marketing, allowing them to take their pitch beyond the night of Fast Pitch. You can learn more about the new training program here.
It is the dedication of you – our PARTNERS – that makes this all possible. Together we are growing leaders, transforming nonprofits, and creating lasting change.
Your partner in progress,
