Philanthropitch Philadelphia

21 Oct 2021 4:26 PM | Travis Oliver (Administrator)

Headquartered right in our neighborhood- at Peirce College—Beyond Literacy (BeLit) is gearing up to compete in this year’s Philanthropitch Philadelphia.

BeLit’s mission is to expand opportunities and improve lives by unleashing the power of literacy through free, high-quality education. They help adult students get their GED (high school equivalency); they help immigrants learn English as a Second Language. They place adult learners in Community College level learning environments.   All programs are through grants, volunteers, supporters and sponsors. Want to help them win the most prestigious Philanthropy prize in Philadelphia?  

Philanthropitch Philadelphia is like Shark Tank for nonprofits except that YOU unlock the majority of the dollars to support BeLit. 

BeLit is one of five nonprofit finalists to pitch an innovative new program to a panel of esteemed judges on October 28.  To support BeLit: 

#1) VIEW & VOTE: It’s the best and most impactful $25 you’ve ever spent! 

Each vote costs $25 and 100% goes directly to BeLit.  

Watch the online pitch and vote during the public voting period: 10/20-10/26.
