Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank has enlisted the help of Jupiter, Florida’s acclaimed community theatre, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, to deliver four highly curated workshops, providing students invaluable coaching and support to help them craft and present their pitches. Finalists receive support materials and other important information. Additionally, students meet their Advisors for Philanthropic Impact – API coaches. API coaches are on hand to support finalists throughout this critical stage of the PBPT competition. They mentor, motivate, counsel and serve as no-holds barred sounding boards for finalists to present, test and refine their ideas.
We use every resource at our disposal to ensure finalists are optimally prepared to effectively, dynamically and confidently pitch.
Students live pitch their creative initiatives and solutions to address social issues impacting Palm Beach County at The Maltz Jupiter Theater, March 8, 2017. They pitch before a live audience to a panel of Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank philanthropist-investors who select the ideas and initiatives they’ll fund for 12 months and up to $15,000. Philanthropist-investors mentor students over the same corresponding 12-month period.
Philanthropist-investors seek viable, sustainable ideas and initiatives that present the promise of deep and lasting impact within the community.
