Philanthropitch 2020 Virtual Event | Social Impact For San Antonio's Nonprofits


The Bank of San Antonio proudly presents Philanthropitch San Antonio, an exciting virtual pitch competition where seven of San Antonio's most innovative nonprofits take the stage to compete for financial capital, business coaching, pitch training and promotion.

"We are honored to bring Philanthropitch to San Antonio to raise funding and support for innovative nonprofits," said Brent Given, President and CEO of The Bank of San Antonio. 

To date, Philanthropitch has given over $1.3 million in donations to more than 80 organizations, and the amount which will be given away to San Antonio finalists this year is expected to exceed $80,000. The audience will also select a favorite finalist for the Audience Choice Award and the winner will be awarded additional funds.

This years’ finalists who will present 3-minute pitches include:
