No matter what anyone says, there is no magic way to get donors to fund a nonprofit.


However, there are many things that can be done to put an organization in the best position to succeed when engaging potential donors.

Beginning in 2020, Virtual Philanthropy will offer a full day Pitch Boot Camp in select cities. Presented from the philanthropic perspective, this comprehensive course will go beyond the surface to focus specifically on what donors want to know and need to know in order to turn an introduction into a relationship.


The Pitch Boot Camp has been formed through key advice from domestic and international donors of all sizes, as well as nonprofit feedback on what they want most to learn in the process of pitching and relationship building. 

Key areas of emphasis will be:

  • The introduction

  • The short pitch

  • The long pitch

  • The written solicitation

  • The mistakes to avoid and how to recover

  • The follow up


During the Pitch Boot Camp, attendees will have significant group and one-on-one attention given to their specific trouble spots with engagement.


There is also an opportunity for additional one-on-one mentoring onsite with donors and much more.


Due to the intimate nature of the Pitch Boot Camp, available spots are limited. Early sign up allows us the ability to tailor participant experience even more. To sign up, follow the directions below. 

Note: A small number of seats will be reserved at a discounted rate for nonprofits of a smaller size and budget.
