2023 Holiday Giving Gift Guide

The Funding Network wants gift-giving to feed good. 
Shop ethically this holiday season with our #TFNAlumni!

Embrace the spirit of the season with our Alumni who have handpicked a selection of holiday gifts and premium products just for you. Feel good knowing that every purchase will support the incredible work of Australian grassroots non-profits, social enterprises, and the many marginalised communities they represent. We encourage you to redefine the art of giving—it can and should be about making conscious spending decisions in a way that has a greater impact. 

Remember, not every gift has to be physical. Consider paying forward your gifts this holiday season and donating to one of the 265 grassroots for-purpose Australian organisations who have pitched at a TFN event through our Alumni platform Roots of Change.

Give a gift of lasting impact and support a more equitable future for all Australians
