"The Funding Network event was a truly awesome opportunity for Heaps Decent. It’s rare that we get to speak about the work we do to a room full of interested people, who are there because they’re genuinely concerned about social issues and want to play a part in making change. This is a great platform for sharing information, making contacts and realising support that wouldn’t otherwise happen. And we were well prepared and encouraged by the TFN staff. The pledges went beyond our expectations and will support Heaps Decent’s project work in Juvenile Justice centres over the year ahead. A huge thanks to everyone who made this happen".
"A TFN event introduces people to philanthropy in an accessible way. There are also some interesting parallels between the TFN format and constructing investment portfolios: both are about due diligence, taking a portfolio approach, assessing the management of each venture, and then investing for success. A TFN event delivers all that in just one evening".
‘TFN can engage people in philanthropy who might otherwise not see themselves as having the resources to give. The message that you don’t have to be rich to give is very important’
‘A truly collaborative model that democratizes giving...’
