Young Funding Network (YFN) is the young people's offshoot of The Funding Network. We hold events where you can come together with other young people to have fun and support the causes you care about. You'll likely find a cheap bar, live music and loads of other lovely surprises. Then comes the exciting bit; you'll hear from three inspirational projects and have the chance to support them with your time, money and skills. There is no requirement for membership of YFN, and your £10 ticket serves as a donation to the project of your choice on the night!
We are a volunteer-led initiative, and in 2015 we received our first grant funding from Macquarie Group Foundation, enabling us to increase the support we provide to young social change projects.
On 14th November YFN will be joining forces with the fab LYCP at independent creative agency Wieden+Kennedy for an evening of pitches, pledging and pitchers. We'll have three amazing social projects pitching for your support - check back soon to find out more.
Don't forget, your £10 ticket acts as a donation towards your project of choice on the night. Come along and experience the power of the collective like never before!
We're excited to be back in action with Year Here on Thursday 14th December. Supporting their second cohort of 2017, we'll be showcasing the latest crop of social ventures emerging from their venture lab tackling some of the most pressing social issues we face today.
