What we do

Our vision: A more equitable society and a social sector that has access to the connections and resources it needs to thrive. 

Our purpose: To build the capacity of grassroots non-profit organisations, by helping to democratise giving and facilitating greater community engagement. 

Did you know that 78% of charities in Australia operate at the grassroots level, yet they receive just 3.4% of the sector’s total funding? This is preventing grassroots changemakers from securing the funding and resources they need to make our world a better place. Meanwhile, people are yearning for personal connection, a sense of hope, and they're looking for ways to have a positive impact in their communities. 

We bring these two groups together to find, fund and grow social programs that create big change at all levels of society. There are two ways we make an impact;

  • TFN LiveThis is crowdfunding, but like you’ve never seen it before. In exciting live events, we connect people who want to make change with people who are doing it. Watch this video to get a taste of the TFN Live events in action.

  • TFN LearnWe understand it’s difficult for charities and social enterprises to engage donors year on year, yet they desperately need funding and resources. And, businesses face similar challenges engaging their staff in CSR activities, highlighting purpose beyond profit. We build the skills of businesses, non-profits, and Foundations in a number of areas, such as pitch coaching, storytelling, mentoring and fundraising.

The end result? More lives changed.
