The Ballarat Foundation, supported by The Funding Network, proudly presented Pitch Up Ballarat.
Three amazing charities, one amazing night!
Pitch Up is a fun, high-energy event facilitating real change in the lives of others through the power of the collective group. In 2022 the event supported three local charities; Ballarat Men’s Mental Health, Eureka Mums and Ballarat Foundation Housing Support Fund. Stay tuned for details about the next Pitch Up event.
Through partnerships and generous local donors, The Ballarat Foundation distributed $67,000 from this event.
The local programs that the event supported in 2022:
Eureka Mums exists to provide local babies and children experiencing disadvantage with the essential nursery equipment and clothing they need for a safe start in life.
We collect and safety-check nursery equipment including cots, prams, and car seats along with items such as clothing, books, toys, nappies & other important items to distribute to those who need them most in our local community.
