In addition to our trademark live crowdfunding events in the UK, TFN also runs a growing Affiliates' Programme through which we equip civil society organisations (CSOs) across the world with the skills, resources and confidence to run their own live giving circle events.
Since the programme launched in 2012, more than 310 events have raised over £5.3m for more than 1,000 social change projects in 24 countries outside of the UK and Ireland.
Thousands of people have taken part in events from Sydney, to Budapest, to Istanbul, as well as in smaller cities and towns across Central and Eastern Europe.
We are currently supporting Affiliates in 20 countries from Brazil to New Zealand and provide ongoing training and funding to drive community transformation beyond our borders. In the past we have supported groups from as far afield as Canada, South Africa and China. To date, over 60 CSO’s have received training either directly from us or through one of our Affiliates.
Affiliates are selected on the basis of an alignment with TFN’s mission, their capacity to deliver events and the need and opportunity for an increase in philanthropy in their country. They must also share our passion for the live crowdfunding model and an interest in developing it further and sharing ideas and learning. No one has all the answers and there is as much for established groups to learn as the fledgling ones.
Typically Affiliates are national organisations with the capacity to cascade the model throughout the country to CSOs working regionally and in smaller towns and cities.
Through the Affiliates' Programme, we’re sparking a worldwide “giving revolution” - hundreds of people coming together at live events every week, working together to create lasting social change in their communities.
