Coming up: Black Funding Network's third virtual crowdfunding event
We are delighted to be supporting TFN member Patricia Hamzahee and her team at the Black Funding Network (BFN) to host their third virtual live crowdfunding event on Thursday 9 June, 6:00pm-7:45pm.
Hosted by broadcaster Eddie Nestor, attendees will hear from three inspiring organisations led by Black social changemakers. These charities and social enterprises have been carefully selected by the Black Funding Network, and it's an exciting opportunity to support changemakers serving the Black community.
At last year's event, the Black Funding Network smashed their target, with over 100 people collectively raising more than £20,000.
Which not-for-profits will be pitching?
Urban MBA – The University for Street Entrepreneurs works to develop enterprise skills so no young person is lost or left behind. Urban MBA empowers marginalised and disengaged young adults (not in education, employment or training) with the conﬁdence, knowledge and focus to strive for success and independence.
5 Aside Theatre – Promotes awareness of the African Caribbean communities to Britain through partnerships with arts organisations, other charities and schools events to produce community events that promote well-being, healthy living, sports camps for children on free school meals as well as training emerging artists as community theatre performers and workshop leaders.
Mindwalk Yoga - Mindwalk Yoga is a social enterprise which exists to represent and empower Black women to embrace yoga for their well-being. Black women in the UK are at a higher risk of mental ill-health, are disproportionately impacted by social detriments associated with mental illness and are more likely to seek treatment only when at crisis point.
The event is free to attend and all are welcome! Register your place today and help create change.
