TFN hosts six flagship events annually, where people come to learn more about four non-profit organisations driving social change. Each non-profit makes a six-minute pitch, seeking to raise £6,000 for their social change project. In the run up to an event, TFN members nominate non-profits which meet the social change criteria and take part in selection panels to help choose who will pitch at the event. Events are open to members and non-members alike.
A TFN event typically begins with informal networking where guests and non-profits can get to know each other over light refreshments. Once everyone is sitting comfortably, four presenters make a six-minute pitch about the social change project they are seeking funding for and take questions from the audience. Pitches and Q&As are strictly timed, giving everyone the same opportunity to make their case.
After the pitches, a Master of Ceremony leads the live crowdfunding. People have the opportunity to give to the projects that appeal to them, whether it's one or all four. Live crowdfunding makes giving easy: anyone can put their hand up and say how much they'd like to give!
There is no obligation to give, but be warned, it can make giving infectious.
The Funding Network is made up of individuals and businesses who want to support social change. Members of TFN can increase their understanding of the social change sector, deepen their engagement with the causes they give to, share their passion for social change, help organisations they already support and increase the impact of their donations
