Future Fund 10 LIVE – Virtual Event April 21, 6:00 pm
Future Fund 10 LIVE is an innovative philanthropy pitch competition that gives 10 nonprofits a stage, both literally and figuratively, to present their innovative program ideas. The 10 nonprofit participants receive training, coaching, feedback, and mentoring on how to succinctly and powerfully tell their story – who they are and why they matter. This culminates in the high energy Future Fund 10 LIVE event where representatives from each nonprofit will give a “Shark Tank-style” pitch contest to win up to $44,000 in grants.
After giving their three-minute pitch, the community-wide audience will text to vote for the $20,000 Grand Prize Winner. Future Fund members will then vote for the $12,000 and $8,000 awards. A $3,000 Coaches grant and a $1,000 Community grant is also awarded. Future Fund 10 LIVE also includes a celebration before and after the pitches where the audience can interact and connect with all ten nonprofits to learn more about their mission and opportunities for support and engagement.
Everyone is invited to come to celebrate the innovative nonprofits in Guilford County!
*We are taking FF 10 LIVE VIRTUAL this year*!
After looking at other options, crazy schedules and not knowing when this will end, we realized we had an opportunity to be a *RAY OF SUNSHINE* during these difficult times. So (as of now) FF 10 LIVE will take place via Facebook livestream on April 21.
We will then have a Celebration Reception with ALL of the finalists and the community (you!) at a later date.
We want to give back to our community always, and we felt now more than ever, this uplifting event was needed. We also felt it was important to make sure EVERYONE who watched had a voice for the $20,000 award recipient so we are making the livestream free and open to everyone to vote.
