Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona

Fast Pitch Grants Awarded

Fast-paced and to the point. That’s how the request for Fast Pitch grants plays out. Presenting a request for funding in front of a live panel isn’t always easy. But nonprofits are finding it’s worth the effort. Fifteen nonprofit organizations received grant funding from the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona in the form of a Fast Pitch Grant, totaling just over $33,000.

Fast Pitch grants provide funding to nonprofit organizations to use towards education or technology that help the organization operate more effectively and productively. Attending national conferences, providing staff training, installing donor database software, and purchasing computers/printers are examples of Fast Pitch projects.

“The Legacy Foundation Board joins me in congratulating this year’s Fast Pitch awardees”, commented Margaret Hepburn, CEO of the Legacy Foundation. She added, “We were very impressed by the pitches and the enthusiasm for their projects.”
