The Seddon Community Bank Branch is calling out to all community groups in the inner west region!

    If you’ve got a community project or program that you need funded, as well as a sense of fun and creativity and are not afraid to get up in front of a crowd, then Community Pitch could be for you.

    Last year the call went out and they were overwhelmed with applications from local community groups, sporting clubs, schools and organisations keen to be a part of the $28,000 prize pool donated by local businesses.

    This year they’re setting the fundraising target to $40,000!!

    With a new format, it’s their goal to not just provide funding but to also create greater community awareness for the amazing organisations that contribute to our local community.

    They’re also looking to increase the number of Pitch Partners to ensure they reach their funding target.

    If you’re part of a local business, this is a great opportunity for you to hear about community programs and projects, meet and build relationships amongst the community and choose the groups you want to support.
