Years: 2019, 2020
Since 2013 The Funding Network (TFN) has shaken up giving by leveraging the collective power of people. Through their interactive, live crowdfunding events, grassroots non-profits pitch to a large audience for funding, pro bono and in-kind support. They have proven the model through 85 live crowdfunding events, supporting 280 non-profit organisations and facilitating over $11M in financial and in-kind support through a network of 9,000 people.
This rural and regional expansion compliments their strategy to build the capacity of grassroots non-profits, fund social change programs and engage communities in collective giving. The Jack Brockhoff Foundation is pleased to help their efforts in leveraging the TFN model to support local changemakers in rural and regional Victoria.
