Honing Your Organization’s Pitch

Bayou Region Nonprofits: Register today for free workshop on Tuesday, September 27 at Fletcher Technical Community College in Schriever.


“What does your nonprofit do and why do I need to care?”

Can you answer that question at a moment’s notice? Can anyone understand your message?

If not, you should probably take the stairs because to deliver a great elevator pitch, you need to convey your mission and purpose in a flash. The pitch should engage your audience in a way that encourages them to learn more about your organization and excites them to become involved.

The Bayou Community Foundation and Greater New Orleans Foundation are partnering on a new and exciting workshop just for Bayou Region nonprofit organizations!
