Inaugural Philanthropitch Columbus Event Raises over $100K

Philanthropitch Columbus presented by Kiwanis Club of Columbus and co-hosted by SocialVentures brought together members of the nonprofit and corporate communities for an evening of philanthropic celebration. The inaugural Columbus event donated $104,475 in total, which was split amongst seven finalist organizations. 

  • ECDI
  • Equitas Health
  • Furniture Bank of Central Ohio
  • Freedom a la Cart
  • Modcon Living
  • Ruling our Experiences
  • YMCA of Central Ohio


Revenue and profit, innovation and scale – these are not words most people associate with philanthropy. However, this is changing as nonprofits explore new models to grow their impact without relying entirely on donations. Philanthropitch stands as a testament to this idea and uplifts the communities that also support and share this ideology. Thanks to our Title Sponsor Kiwanis Club of Columbus and event Co-Host SocialVentures, we established lasting relationships in Columbus and made an impact for seven local nonprofits.
