Background

Pitch Night is an exciting opportunity for local community-based organisations, including not-for-profits, from the Wollongong and Shellharbour region, to ‘pitch’ their innovative ideas to address the health needs of their local communities in an effort to secure funding for their idea.

The benefit for those pitching is to gain exposure of their ideas, community support and funding to move their initiative forward.

The aim is to provide one-off grant funding which supports innovative initiatives that meet the needs of the community and potentially act as a catalyst for implementation in other communities.

On the night, presenters will pitch for six-minutes and respond to questions from the audience. The presenters then leave the room before the guests pledge funding for each organisation.

When the pledging is finished, the presenters are invited to return and the final tallies for each project are announced. You can view highlights from similar events held by clicking this link: Pitch Night highlights.
