Pinnacle has joined forces with Sage Partners Acuity and Datel to donate £21k to Philanthropitch, a fast-pitch competition where innovative charities pitch to win capital to scale their organization.
Charities PIP, Working Chance and Hire a Hero will pitch to a panel of Sage Executives as well as Sage Business Partner Sponsors, including James Spencer MD of Pinnacle, on 6th April at Sage Summit UK
1st place will be awarded an extra £10k, 2nd place £7k and 3rd place £4k – on top of the £25k Big Give donation. The extra £21k for the Big Give Live is from the 3 Sage Partner Sponsors including Pinnacle.
James Spencer, MD of Pinnacle, is delighted to be able to make a difference to 3 local charities.
"I attended Sage Summit Chicago in 2016 when Sage Chief Financial Officer, Steve Hare set a $1 million fundraising target so that Sage colleagues, customers and partners could all work together to do more good for our communities. We have been following Sage's global foundation for change and admiring its efforts to date.
When the opportunity arose to become involved in the Big Give we immediately signed up there and then. It is great that 3 local non-profit partners are set to benefit from the campaign and I wish them all the very best of luck".
If you are attending Sage Summit UK, all you have to do is go along to the pitches, listen and cast your vote. 3 judges will award first prize, but your votes will decide second and third place.
The Big Give Live - powered by Philanthropitch, is being hosted in ICC Capital Suite 14, 15.00 - 15.45 Thursday 6th April, Sage Summit UK, ExCel London
