Every month, Awesome Pgh trustees gather to award a $1,000 grant to a project that will make Pittsburgh a more awesome place. We've helped to fund Pittsburgh's smallest jazz club, a pop-up retail store to raise awareness of gender wage equality, Pittsburgh's first ice cream boat, and over 30 other projects. In March, we invite you to join in on the fun!
On March 20, some of our favorite recent applicants will pitch their projects to our trustees, guest judges, and all of you at a live pitch party! Questions and feedback from trustees and guest judges will give applicants and attendees an inside look at how grant decisions are made each month.
Come on up to Ascender's new location in East Liberty (Village of East Side, at the corner of Penn Ave & East Liberty Blvd, 3rd floor) to listen to awesome live pitches, hear from recent grant winners, and mingle with others doing awesome work around town. We are especially excited to introduce you to our guest judges from Program to Aid Citizen Enterprise, The Sprout Fund, GTECH, and of course, Ascender, each of which also funds awesome local projects.
The event (and refreshments) are free, but space is limited, so RSVP is required.
