TFN London

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.

Festive Funding Event

This year's Festive Funding was a dynamic and fun night of giving where together we raised over £40,000 for four non-profits doing inspirational work: supporting children with Down syndrome through learning, empowering disadvantaged women through training and employment, providing work opportunities and schooling in Ghana and providing safe homes for refugees with hosts in the UK.
