Fast Pitch 2018 – The Next Generation

The focus of this iteration of the Fast Pitch is on the development of a full range of marketing tools to support the organizations in achieving their missions. The organizations that choose to participate will establish their eligibility by ensuring they have a representative participate in a regimen of training classes and production of a set of deliverables.


Each organization will be asked to develop the following deliverables to demonstrate their marketing acumen. Below are links to simple tools for developing your guides.

  • A Marketing Plan – A brief summary
  • A Fundraising Campaign
  • A Social Media Calendar (if you use social media)
  • A Video of their work


The Competition


We will ask coaches to work with eligible organizations for at least two group sessions in September and early October. Organizations can decide to meet with coaches on their own for additional sessions prior to the first round of the competition.

What a good club!

Let’s go to the Final!


Wow and wouju! We went to the final !!!! Yes, tonight we participated in the Fastpitch semifinal of the CNA Center for Nonprofit Advancement. The event took place at the Galilee Center in the city of Mecca, CA. And well, what beautiful facilities have been created for the community. The place is huge and beautiful. Above all, the help they give to the community is incredible and always to the neediest.

Well, tonight Get in Motion went to the final of the competition that is going to take place in the month of November at UCR Palm Desert Campus. The total amount of the contest prizes is $ 60,000 to be given in three categories:

  • The most innovative Fastpitch
  • The popular election
  • The best Fastpitch by the judges

They are a total of seven finalists. The awards can be taken by just one organization or three organizations. Your participation is extremely important for the entire community. You will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite organization. All funds raised will be donated to other nonprofit organizations.

This final is going to be incredible! Each person will have three minutes to make their fastpitch. That’s how we did it in the final and the truth was that I got nervous. I was happy and excited but my nerves did not hurt.

Anyway, and they say my name and I throw myself. And well, tada! Good thing I was the first of the night, so it did not make me more nervous. I loved seeing the people who came to support us, 8 in total: Maricruz, Vilma, Esmeralda, and her boyfriend, America and her daughter America and Silva Sandoval. Wow! How good it feels to be supported.

 In fact, all the causes are noble and have a lot of support and many achievements in the community. And it’s good that we talked about organizations that did not make it to the final. In reality there are no winners or losers. We had 5 months of training in various areas to support us in the preparation of our fastpitch. We have also had Coaches to guide us in our practices. And it has also been most beautiful to live with the other organizations and see that it is a reality that can coexist and support each other for the benefit of the communities. We are a diversity of organizations.

And well, now the preparation follows. We are 7 organizations competing for $ 60,000 that are on the table. What I like is that all organizations are rewarded in education, networking and monetarily.

I want to highlight the work that the Regional Access Program Foundation (RAP Foundation) is doing with its CNA Center for Nonprofit Advancement program with this new Fastpitch model and with other events that take place throughout the year to support hundreds of nonprofit organizations that exist in the Coachella Valley. They are teaching us to coexist with other organizations and make new associations for the good of the community and the organizations themselves.

Well, we are celebrating and already bringing in the fastpitch for the final.
