Our Mission

Our mission is to engage women in local philanthropy and to collectively fund grants to nonprofit initiatives that serve Cook County.
Through our internal pitch process, our members educate their peers about unmet needs in the community by championing the causes about which they are most passionate.
Pitch Your Peers is committed to promoting volunteerism, informed philanthropy, and collaborative giving, as well as to fostering connections among women looking to share and grow their interests in these areas.

‘Pitch Your Peers’ was founded in Greenwich Connecticut in 2016. In 2017 ‘Pitch Your Peers Seattle’ was formed, making ‘Pitch Your Peers Chicago’ the third official chapter formed in 2020.  In 2023 the 4th chapter was formed, Pitch Your Peers, The Hamptons. Since 2016 Pitch Your Peers have awarded over $1.5m in grants to local community initiatives in Connecticut and Washington, and Illinois.
