It’s modern day philanthropy at its best, flipping traditional community investment on its head – it’s not a hand out it’s a hand up.
The premise is simple. Local community groups and clubs have three minutes on stage to pitch and persuade local businesses – Community Pitch Partners – to make a financial contribution to their organisation, program or project at a gala event hosted by Seddon Community Bank® Branch.
Developed by Inner West Community Enterprises, and now being considered by other Community Bank® Companies around the country, the Community Pitch takes a collaborative, partner-based approach to build community prosperity.
It’s about so much more than just money. The event brings people together, instilling a sense of pride in who they are and what they do. Sharing real stories from real people, and building strong community partnerships is just half the fun.
