SVP Pune has organized "Pitch Perfect," an event on February 2, 2024, where eight non-profits from Maharashtra will share 5-minute compelling stories about their work. The event aims to bridge NGOs with potential donors, amplifying community impact. NGOs have been coached for two months on presentation, storytelling, and communication by SVP partners, who are professionals and senior industry leaders.

All presenting NGOs are based in Maharashtra and work at the grassroots to uplift lives. The NGOs include Prayatna for People with Special Needs, Dnyanada Institute of Flow Piping Technology (DIPT), Eklavya India Foundation, Tapasya Pratishthan, Agro Rangers Trust, Samata Centre (Action for Impact Foundation), Anubhuti Social Empowerment and Educational Foundation (focus on women empowerment through sustainable livelihood training), and Blue Cross (free OPD and affordable IPD for small animals).

Rachna Rathi, Chair, SVP Pune Chapter, stated, “Over the years, the Pune Chapter has worked with over 30 non-profits, and it is during this time that we have realized that building an image and fundraising is one of the most challenging tasks an NGO founder has. This challenge arises from a lack of expertise, resulting in missed opportunities for support. Pitch Perfect is an attempt to provide comprehensive coaching in storytelling and fundraising techniques, empowering organizations to better articulate their mission and achievements.”

Govind Iyer, Chair, SVP India, said, “SVP is a unique global institution focusing on creating impact through ‘engaged philanthropy’. Creating engaged philanthropists who understand the NGOs and support and scale their work is at the very core of SVP. Pitch Perfect is one such initiative where we are looking at supporting the NGOs through building their capacities that can accelerate their growth.”

The evening is structured to allow philanthropists, entrepreneurs, funders, and corporates to connect and interact with credible NGOs that are making a real impact.

Benefits of Pitch Perfect:

'Pitch Perfect' is a transformative initiative benefiting both NGOs and donors. It provides a crucial platform for organizations to directly showcase their impactful work to potential donors, thereby fostering greater visibility and support. Donors, in turn, gain the valuable opportunity to promptly verify NGOs and their work, ensuring that their contributions create a meaningful and immediate difference.

The initiative goes beyond a one-time event, enhancing capacity development for NGOs, empowering them to scale their impact and reach more communities in need. Moreover, it fosters ongoing communication between NGOs and donors, nurturing long-term partnerships and sustained support. Lastly, 'Pitch Perfect' serves as a gateway to funding opportunities from corporate and CSR foundations, allowing NGOs access to essential resources for driving sustainable change. In essence, this initiative catalyzes collaboration and innovation, steering positive social impact across communities.
