Silver Chef boss Allan English and the gang over at Morgans stockbroking in Brisbane are giving each other high fives after pulling off a pretty impressive fundraiser this week. They managed to squeeze more than 150 guests into the Bille Brown Studio on Tuesday night for a “collective giving’’ bash which was able to generate just over $160,000 in donations.Read More
‘A game changer for philanthropy in Australia…’
“I think this is the best run program I have ever had the pleasure of presenting for. The amount of effort the TFN team put into our presentations ensured it was a well-rehearsed presentation on the night. Every presenter was amazing. We learnt so much! The best thing was the spirit of camaraderie and mutual respect among the presenters, and the generous, friendly atmosphere - money cannot purchase that. One large funder sat behind me and has promised more funding on the next round. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would get so much in one night. The team are amazing. Rob especially became father to all of us. We are so grateful for this opportunity. Thank you TFN.”
"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".
