Desert Fast Pitch provides funding, coaching to strengthen nonprofits

Community services such as food pantries, health care and homeless shelters are more in demand than ever since the pandemic began, yet many of the nonprofit organizations managing these essential services continue to face enormous challenges due to an ongoing lack of funding and resources.

Enter Desert Fast Pitch, a lively fundraising contest in which nonprofit leaders powerfully communicate their needs in a three-minute pitch for funding. The goal: to win more than $65,000 in cash grants and build awareness and visibility from community leaders in the process.

The “Shark Tank”-style big event, on hiatus for the past two years due to the pandemic, will be take Thursday, Oct. 6, from 2 to 5 pm at UCR Palm Desert Campus. Desert Fast Pitch will attract more than 300 philanthropic, business, civic and nonprofit leaders and is expected to sell out.
