Afterwards, join us for our networking happy hour at Land-Grant Brewing Co. from 4 -6 PM! If you can’t make it out for volunteering, we’d still love to see you… meet us Land-Grant!


About Philanthropitch

Philanthropitch was founded in 2013 as an internal, community engagement program at BuildASign, a startup in Austin, Texas. Philanthropitch has since launched into a national nonprofit platform, supporting over 135 nonprofits and facilitating over $2 million in donations. We are proud to work alongside nonprofit organizations, corporations, foundations, and business leaders in Austin, San Antonio, Columbus, and Philadelphia to create sustainable and scalable impact.

Philanthropitch’s signature pitch competition program provides nonprofit organizations with knowledge, collaboration, and capital to scale their impact. Competition finalists receive 1:1 coaching and educational workshops as part of Philanthropitch’s intensive training program. The Philanthropitch program culminates in a live pitch event where finalists have the opportunity to receive funding and exposure to new donors, supporters, and mentors that will support their impact efforts well beyond the competition. Past supporters have included Google, TD Bank, H-E-B, and Hulu.

Since its founding, Philanthropitch has donated over $2 million to 135 nonprofits, and they’re just getting started!
