Calling all Columbus-area non-profits! Applications are now open for Philanthropitch 2022. The social fast pitch competition helps local non-profits making an impact in Central Ohio with capital, coaching and building awareness.

Now in its fourth year in Columbus, Philanthropitch provides 501c3 organizations currently serving or planning to expand to the Columbus area with risk capital to scale their impact, as well as one-on-one pitch training and business coaching. During the three-month intensive program, participants complete education courses, work on their storytelling skills and connect and engage with community members and organizations to build awareness of their missions.

Philanthropitch will hold two Virtual Application Q&A Webinars over the coming months on December 13, 2021 and January 5, 2022.

The deadline for applications for the program is extended to close at 11:59 p.m. CST on Wednesday, January 12. (Updated January 10, 2022).

Once the application period is complete, semi-finalists will advance to a phone interview, with finalists beginning programming in February to prepare to take the stage and pitch at Philanthropitch 2022 on April 12.

Since 2019, Philanthropitch has generated over $320,000 for 20 area non-profits. Nationwide, Philanthropitch has raised $2.1 million for 135 nonprofits in Austin, Columbus, Philadelphia and San Antonio since its inception in 2013.
