'The Funding Network is a very exciting new donations platform and 1 Million Women is very proud to be chosen as a project in their inaugural Sydney event. Lisa and her team have made the process of both donating and receiving so inclusive and simple that this dynamic model will no doubt add a significant new arm to the philanthropic landscape in Australia'
'As a grass roots international organisation, the power of TFN was so much greater than we ever expected! What we received was a new way to tell our story through expert pitch trainers, introductions to a network of new funders, exposure to like-minded people, and the opportunity to share the stage with truly amazing people. The icing on the cake was the unexpected amount of funds raised which will be critical to supporting the important work that we do'.
'TFN was so much more than just the event. The interview and coaching processes have pushed us to nail the essence of the issue and the solution. That feels powerful. Our effectiveness in communicating our work has been multiplied. But the event ! . . . That was fun. I really appreciated the opportunity for conversations with people I would not usually get a chance to meet, and their tangible belief in the value of our work. Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to be part of this'.
'Pitching Milk Crate Theatre's work at the recent TFN event was such an extraordinary opportunity for us, with funds raised well beyond what we had hoped for. The training and support provided by TFN in preparation for the event was excellent and has equipped us with skills that we will certainly utilise in the future. Probably the most fantastic thing about the evening was the opportunity to meet so many individuals who are passionate about social change, and to connect with and share our work and passion with them in a really targeted and open way. The whole concept behind TFN makes giving fun, accessible, vibrant and inclusive and we were thrilled to be a part of their Sydney event'
