We are opportunity makers. Opportunities are not just something we experience; opportunities are something we create. That’s what we do at The Funding Network.
TFN is an Australian non-profit organisation that hosts live collective-giving events where like-minded individuals, foundations and corporations come together to create powerful social change. At each event, four social entrepreneurs running grassroots non-profit organisations pitch for funding from a philanthropic audience. In six-minute segments our speakers share their inspiring stories and invite guests to become part of innovative solutions to community issues.
Guests are given time to ask questions and pledge support. Donations start from at as little as $100 per person, with the collective goal to raise at least $10,000 for each organisation. Donors can choose to give more than funding and also provide mentoring, services and in-kind resources to support the causes they feel passionately about.
Our engaging, interactive and inclusive events unite people to achieve more as a group than individually. By empowering people to give we challenge the notion that only the wealthy can make a difference. We expand and deepen the practice of giving by making it collaborative, rewarding and accessible to all.
