What We Do

The Funding Network holds regular live crowdfunding events where members and guests can discover and engage with innovative charitable projects. 

What is Live Crowdfunding?

Our live crowdfunding events are like a friendly Dragons' Den, giving people the chance to come together with a philanthropic purpose to support causes they care about. It gives people the opportunity to pool their time and resources to fund charitable projects that catalyse social change. Crowdfunding events can vary in size and structure, ranging from a group of friends in a local bar, to large scale events hosted by corporate organisations.


As the pioneer of live crowdfunding, we provide an open-to-all public forum, engaging people in complex issues and innovative solutions. Our events create a platform for donors of all levels to join together in an enjoyable, relaxed environment. This creates an opportunity to meet and collaborate with innovative and effective social change organisations with the crowdfunding acting as a catalyst for a healthier, fairer, and more sustainable society. 

It’s our aim to address both traditional and emerging issues, which promise to have great impact on society. Specifically, we wish to support small-scale projects that are difficult to fund. 


Since our inception in 2002, The Funding Network has provided vital support to a number of different charities and organisations, raising over £8 million for over 1,200 projects. We have funded organisations in the areas of human rights, climate change and the environment, health, education, inclusion and many more.
