In partnership between Cincy YP and Fuel Cincinnati, we invite you to attend the first-ever Social Innovator $3,000 Pitch Contest, celebrating Impact + Innovation in our community with a performance by Cincinnati Music Accelerator Alumni’s.

During this interactive event, Cincy YP and Fuel Cincinnati seek to recognize and support innovative nonprofit ideas working to solve critical issues facing marginalized and under-resourced communities across Cincinnati. Through various presentations, the Social Innovator Pitch Contest will showcase organizations on the forefront of change–each pitching their unique ideas for a grant prize of $3,000. That’s where you come in! Each member of the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite idea, narrowing the competition down to the final three contestants.


  • 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. – Cocktail Hour
  • 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. – Pitch Contest

Cincy YP and Fuel Cincinnati are both programs of Give Back Cincinnati.
