'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'.
"The chance to present DMA's work at The Funding Network was not only a great way to raise important funds, but also an opportunity to spread the word. It's often hard for small organisations to be heard, but on this occasion we had 6 minutes to explain our work to an engaged and interested room full of potential supporters. It was exciting to see those potential supporters turn into actual funders as they pledged to our organisation. The support we received from TFN in the lead up to the event really helped us to pitch our story in the most engaging way and to see ourselves from an outsiders perspective. Huge thanks go out to TFN for helping us to connect with their members, who are engaged, passionate and interested in effective philanthropy".
“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.”
