Pitch 10

Next Generation United’s signature event, Pitch 10, gives members the power to decide which local nonprofits win up to $20,000 in grants. Ten organizations have three minutes to pitch their idea and attendees vote for their favorite to win. Hear from last year's winner, Grassroots Gardens of WNY here. 

Please note: Due to COVID-19, Next Generation United is evaluating available options to host Pitch 10 in 2021. Stay tuned for updates.
