Grant Tank at the Bank

RevComm Foundation is excited to host its first ever fundraising event, Grant Tank at the Bank! While the event was originally schedule for 10/26, it has been postponed to February/March of 2023 (TBD) to ensure that nonprofits have the opportunity to apply and to secure a more centralized location for all Southern California based agencies. But the momentum continues on! Join local philanthropic investors, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and passionate community changemakers for the inaugural Grant Tank event presented by RevComm Foundation. During this fun and unconventional spin on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, RevComm Foundation will invite local nonprofit organizations to pitch their mission and vision to an audience and most importantly an assembly of generous philanthropic “Sharks”.
