The Corn Exchange, Newbury

Pitch to the Panel is a dragons’ den style event where local charitable organisations can bid for a share of £100,000 towards a capital project or groundbreaking new service. This is a unique opportunity for charities to put their project forward in person and bid for a larger sum of money than is available through Greenham Trust’s reactive grant scheme. The event, at Newbury Corn Exchange, is a great opportunity for the local community to get together, find out more about the work of some local charities and help make a difference to the lives of others. This year we welcome a new compere – Adam Kotz, a new panel and the golden ticket – an opportunity for a member of the audience to award £5000 to a project of their choice.

How can I apply to pitch?

Are you a local charitable organisation looking for between £30k and £100k of funding for a capital project or new groundbreaking service? If so, this could be for you! Greenham Trust is offering £100k to be awarded in a Dragon's Den Style competition. The funds could be distributed across a maximum of 6 projects, or it could be winner takes all. The panel will decide.

To apply for pitch to the panel you will first need to register your project on thegoodexchange and then email events@greenhamtrust.com.
For further details and full terms and conditions please click here. Applications close on Friday 8 March 2019.

Why attend the event?

This is an event not to be missed. Pitch to the Panel is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved in your local community, learn about the work of others and support local charities. It’s an evening where you can help to make a difference in the community you live in and we can guarantee that you will leave with that “feel good factor.”

New for 2019 is the golden ticket. Every audience member will be entered into a prize draw to win the golden ticket. The lucky winner, who will be drawn at the end of the evening, will be invited to nominate a project on The Good Exchange, within Greenham Trust’s area of operation, to receive a grant of £5000 from Greenham Trust. The winner must be present to claim the award.
