“We are extremely excited and proud to announce the nonprofit organizations that will compete in PdNCF’s second annual Gator Tank pitch competition,” said Andrea Macias, Paso del Norte Community Foundation, Development Coordinator. “Gator Tank offers these nonprofits key training and a chance to gain resources needed to support their missions of bettering our community.”

Gator Tank is a competition created to aid local nonprofit organizations through training and provide opportunities to build capital from local investors to help expand their nonprofit organizations.

The program is a unique fundraising model bringing together nonprofit organizations, mentors, and funders to think creatively and strategically to win monetary prizes and expand their impact within our shared communities.

Gator Tank takes place July 12 through October 12 with training and support provided by various mentors on topics ranging from The Art of Pitching, Defining Your Fundraising Cycle, and What Funders are Looking For.

 The finalists will submit their pitch presentation and plan before making their in-person pitch on October 13th for the chance to win monetary prizes.
