Learn who the three Pitch Piqua finalists are in the announcement video!




The Piqua Community Foundation is proud to unveil its new initiative! Pitch Piqua is a charitable grant pitch competition with a $50,000 top prize for nonprofit organizations with a project benefiting Piqua!

A Foundation review committee reviewed narrative applications then interviewed semi-finalist candidates before narrowing the pool the three finalists.

Finalists’ ideas are developed as a partnership between each of the three finalist organizations selected and The Foundation in the months leading up to the public event. Finalists work with Foundation staff on project scope, budgeting, capacity-building and storytelling presentation skills through this time.

The finalists then present their concepts at a community event on the first Thursday of March to a panel of judges who will decide the same day which organization wins the $50,000 award for its presented project. The other two finalist organizations will each be awarded a $5,000 unrestricted grant. All finalists will also be eligible for pass-through designated donations made by community members.

Pitch Piqua is an ultra-local grant competition that promotes local philanthropy and supports our community’s nonprofit sector!
