The Novel Coronavirus has changed many things in our everyday lives. That includes how we originally  wanted to bring about The Pitch Boot Camp to nonprofits. Although there is a tangibility to in-person mentoring, the importance of knowing how to best engage with donors has not gone away for most nonprofits. In fact, it increases.

As pointed out by one of our Donor Tour Guides, if we can make philanthropy virtual, we can also successfully make the Pitch Boot Camps virtual.

Virtual Philanthropy will begin to offer Virtual Pitch Boot Camps starting as early as mid-June. Presented from the philanthropic perspective, this comprehensive course will go beyond the surface to focus specifically on what donors want to hear and need to know in order to turn an introduction into a relationship, as told by donors.

The Virtual Pitch Boot Camps have 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 in-person pitch

  • The written solicitation

  • The mistakes to avoid and how to recover

  • The follow up

  • Direct donor feedback

During each Virtual 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 Virtual Pitch Boot Camp, there will only be five available spots per day.  Dates will be announced shortly. There will be one day more focused on in-person pitches, a second day dedicated to written solicitations, and the third day will focus on both equally.

Note: A small number of seats will be reserved at a discounted rate for nonprofits of a smaller size and budget.  If your organization has an annual budget of $100,000 or less, please contact us.




Virtual Philanthropy is a guided tour for nonprofits looking to understand the steps they should take in order to get in front of and, eventually get funding from foundations and donors
