Welcome to Community Pitch

What is Community Pitch? It’s a little like Shark Tank only much friendlier.

Local businesses and individuals are invited to join with us in creating a pool of funds that will be distributed to ten charities or community groups on a single night.

The ten community groups are carefully selected to ensure a broad range of support is offered. Each group is given three minutes to pitch their project to a room filled with local businesses and community members – Pitch Partners – who have generously contributed to a funding pool. At the end of the night, each Pitch Partner donates their pledged funds to the community group/s they wish to support.

In 2023 the Pitch Funding Pool reached a total of $64,850, including a $30,000 donation from KFSL.
Community Pitch has already demonstrated its ability to drive meaningful change - in 2024 we aim to deepen the impact on the community.
