It’s that time of year again and we’re excited to be launching the fifth annual Community Pitch for 2019!!

Over the past four years, Seddon Community Bank Branch and our valued Pitch Partners have handed over $83,400 to help support local programs and projects that benefit our whole community.

The Community Pitch is a unique opportunity for local community groups to promote their projects and programs and tell the local community what they are doing. Each community group has 3 minutes to ‘pitch’ their project to a pool of local businesses.

At the end of the presentations each business or Pitch Partner receives their book of cheques with the opportunity to donate to the community group(s) who most inspired them – you actually have the chance to get face to face with the community groups you donate to.

What’s in it for you?

  • The opportunity to hear first-hand from the local community and their need for funding
  • An invitation for you and a guest to the Community Pitch 2019 event including finger food
  • A Community Pitch novelty cheque including your logo as a momento of your contribution to the community
  • Pitch cheques for you to distribute to your chosen community groups
  • Promotion of your business’ participation via Seddon Community Bank’s social media, branch advertising and The Westsider
  • Photographs from the evening for you to use in your own marketing
  • The opportunity to network with like-minded businesses and community members

How do you join in?
