What Kind of Perth Do You Want to Create?

Finalists will be trained in crowdfunding and pitching by StartSomeGood and paired with a mentor who has crowdfunded before. This is about honing your story and outreach plans to maximise your success! 

Pitch for Good will be the launch of your crowdfunding campaign and a huge fundraising opportunity in its own right. All ticket sales will be distributed to enterprises on the night, and the City of Parramatta will match the funds raised!

Funds raised at Pitch for Good will be pledged towards your crowdfunding campaign on StartSomeGood, giving you incredible early momentum and a great chance to more than double your funds already raised, helping you reach your fundraising goals and make a bigger difference.
