Leadership Bend’s Class of 2019 selected nine Central Oregon nonprofits to participate in this year’s Impact Summit and have the opportunity to earn more than $10,000 in unrestricted funds. The hands-on competition has awarded more than $50,000 in unrestricted funds to winning nonprofits in the past four years. The Impact Summit, which provides training and visibility for local nonprofits, culminates in an opportunity to present in front of a panel of experts during Pitch for a Purpose, presented by Jules Accounting Services, Inc. Pitch for a Purpose, which will take place May 8 at Central Oregon Community College’s Willie Hall, is Central Oregon’s only pitch-style funding competition for nonprofits.

This year’s participants are:

Assistance League of Bend, an organization dedicated to improving the physical and emotional well-being of children and adults in need throughout Deschutes County

Beulah’s Place, a Redmond-based shelter that provides drop-in services to homeless teenagers throughout Central Oregon to protect them from child trafficking and offer healing and hope

Camp Fire Central Oregon, provides a nurturing, constructive and fun environment for young people to gain critical life skills

Central Oregon Avalanche Center, dedicated to increasing avalanche awareness and safety in Central Oregon

Changing Patterns, Inc, assists in the transition of one who was once a liability to become an asset and productive member of the community

Community Orchestra of Central Oregon, provides a fun and accessible environment for musicians and free concerts in public places

La Pine Community Kitchen, provides basic necessities of food and clothing for free to residents of southern Deschutes County, northern Klamath County and western Lake County

LightPath, offers programs that support the integration of mind, body and spirit
