T9 Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition

Inspired by T9 Pitchfest Outdoor’s success and our ongoing mission to support women in leading, risking, and owning in all aspects of their lives, we launched our first annual Pitchfest Nonprofit Edition!

Our Pitchfest NPE focuses on gathering together women leaders in the nonprofit sector: to tell us their stories, pitch their programs, and win some cash to build their organizations. We look forward to adding a whole new group of entrepreneurial activists to our team of women leaders.

Pitchfest NPE focuses on women-run programs serving women* and girls* in the following areas:

   •  SPORTS: Empowering women and girls to move, grow, and adventure

   •  REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE: Supporting every person’s right to bodily autonomy

   •  POLITICS & LEADERSHIP: Eliminating the barriers to elected leadership and inspiring women and girls to step up in all aspects of their lives.

*We use "women and girls" in a gender expansive way, to include cis, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender queer, and any women-identified or girl-identified person.
