Four years on, there are now TFN events in the South West, Scotland, Cambridge and Toronto as well as London.At these invitation-only events, individuals committed to giving get to hear 8-10 charities present their work in six minutes each and have a chance to question them.

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Individuals inspired to help can do so on the spot, either during the lively open pledging session or through an anonymous pledge. Gifts range from £100 to several thousand, but there is no obligation to give.Charities interested in a future slot are encouraged to ask a supporter or trustee to attend on their behalf, rather than a member of staff, as TFN asks that attendees should be at least potential donors. One TFN member explains the attraction of the events: “The funding events offer an opportunity to stop awhile and engage with what giving is about. I get a simple buzz from being able to contribute a bit.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Funding Network close to raising £1 millioncenter_img Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Research / statistics  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 3 February 2006 | Newslast_img read more
