Fast Pitch

Fast Pitch is a free training program for nonprofit leaders and an event designed to create community-level change. Each year eight nonprofits receive a five-month training program to help improve their fundraising and messaging skills. Participants receive Structured Learning Sessions, Practice Clinics, Mentorships, and every nonprofit in the program will receive unrestricted grant funding! The main event distributes over $100,000 in grants!

The Fast Pitch Program is a tried-and-true method of cultivating donor relations and increasing nonprofit exposure, while training nonprofit leaders on how to pitch their organization’s mission, model, results and their impact. Fast Pitch inspires and engages all of Tucson in the process of creating positive change and nonprofits are creating solutions to our most critical needs. Together, we are building a future where our nonprofit communities are resilient, have resources to thrive, and are strengthened by the power of relationships

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth
Families
Economically disadvantaged people

SVP Tucson is dedicated to disrupting the siloed service delivery model for Southern Arizona families living in poverty by bringing together organizations that serve children and their parents into a coordinated system of programs and policies that meet the needs of all family members, providing the resources they need to move from poverty to opportunity. At the center of the solution is SVP’s 2Gen Nonprofit Collaboration, a joint effort of vital nonprofits committed to working together to provide the resources and opportunities families need for positive outcomes. The strategy is to simultaneously build capacity in these nonprofit organizations ensuring organizational stability and scale, and to create a sustainable collaboration that systematically cross-refers clients to meet whole family needs, centers family voice, and builds social capital amongst families. SVP Tucson provides capacity building, coaching, and unrestricted grant funding to all nonprofits in the 2Gen Collaboration

Last updated: 08/08/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
