We really focused on organizations that serve people affected by COVID-19, be it for economic reasons or for health or educational reasons. We strive to share the stories of organizations that support the most marginalized and underserved populations and organizations that work to end racial and gender injustice, ”said Ciara Garcia, Executive Director of SVP Tucson.

“Each nonprofit has two mentors – community members, people with business development, coaching, or communication experience – who are there every step of the way to make sure their message gets through strong and clear. This year we have some of the best pitches we’ve ever heard … just beautiful, heartfelt pitches that tell incredible stories, ”said Garcia.
