Fast Pitch 2012

The Fast Pitch is an annual series of events that allows the community to experience how CTCF is a resource bridge connecting individuals and nonprofits.

Highlight Video and press coverage

The crowd of just under 200 people chose their favorite presentation from the evening and voted to award the People’s Choice $1,000 grant to Hope Alliance!

Every other group that “pitched” in Round 2 (the verbal presentations) took home a $200 grant made possible by private donors.  To donate to one of the participants, click on the links for the individual groups below or contact CTCF for more information at (512) 863-4186 or

Thanks to all our participants—we had an incredible depth of quality in the projects presented!  All those in attendance not only learned about specific needs in the community but were also amazed by the creativity and hard work of area nonprofits.
