Pitching Your Nonprofit

Nonprofits occupy a unique niche in our society. No one - not the founder, the staff, or the board - owns a nonprofit. Nonprofit leaders govern their organizations on behalf of the community they serve. Part of the work we do as nonprofit leaders is to communicate with community members about the work that’s being done in our nonprofits and the need that still exists. This module, Pitching Your Nonprofit, will help you tell your nonprofit’s story succinctly and effectively.


This course was developed in partnership with The Greater Sum

Pitch Coaching: Share Your Pitch & Get Feedback!

According to one study, up to 75% of Americans suffer from fear of public speaking. MANY nonprofit leaders work bravely to overcome this fear. Why? Because they are motivated by their mission. We do it over and over and over, hating it a little less every time. Join Pitch Coaching if you’d like to get some practice delivering your pitch and get feedback from supportive peers. This session draws on the material from Lesson 3 and 5 of the “Pitching Your Nonprofit” module in the Weave Learning Center.
