Philanthropitch 2020: Apply now

Apply by Tuesday, Nov. 12, for your chance to cash in on more than $100,000 in donations & funding

Over the past half dozen years, Philanthropitch, the social impact fast-pitch competition, has been on a mission to scale innovative nonprofits in communities around the nation. Presented by the AEP Foundation and featuring SocialVentures as a community partner, the second annual Philanthropitch Columbus will take place at the the Speaker Jo Ann Davidson Theatre in the Riffe Center Theatre Complex on March 3, 2020. The inaugural 2019 Columbus event saw seven nonprofit organizations awarded nearly $105,000 in donations.

Are you a Columbus nonprofit interested in showcasing just how innovative and sustainable your organization is during a live social impact celebration? Want to get your nonprofit in front of future donors and passionate volunteers?


With more than $1.2 million raised in donations since its founding, Philanthropitch accelerates nonprofits by providing the risk capital they need to expand their impact and fund initiatives that aren’t covered by traditional grants. Nonprofits that step onto the Philanthropitch stage not only gain access to capital, they receive top-notch pitch coaching and build awareness among new fans, including donors, mentors and passionate volunteers.
