Introducing the Fast Pitch Class of 2021!
December 8th, 2020
Dear Community Member,
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 consisted of a team of 17 partners and community members who reviewed 47 applications (the most ever!) and selected these 10 nonprofits:
• 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
We are excited to welcome them as the Fast Pitch Class of 2021! These organizations are working at the forefront of the intersectional movements for racial, economic, & social justice. They’re tackling incarceration issues, gender inequalities, education, economic disparities, & more!
Check out this video of the nonprofit leaders endearing reactions as they learned that they will be a part of this life changing experience!
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.
We know that you will want to be a part of hearing their stories from the Fast Pitch stage on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 5 PM. You can be one of the first to reserve your Fast Pitch virtual ticket.
