What is TFN Live?

TFN’s Flagship live crowdfunding events build bridges between business, philanthropy, everyday Australians and the social sector to transform compassion into action. 

Through these carefully curated events, TFN provides a platform for grassroots non-profits and social enterprises to share stories of impact, build support and raise vital funds. These funding events inspire laughter, tears, connection and generosity for innovative programs with the power to change lives. Anyone can attend and pledging starts at $100. 

  • PROGRAM SELECTION - TFN undertakes an open call for applications then conducts due diligence and convenes an independent selection panel to select the three organisations that will pitch at the event.

  • PITCH COACHING - TFN’s expert pitch coach guides and prepares the presenters to articulate their story and unique case for support.

  • BUILDING THE AUDIENCE - With the support of our event partners, TFN brings together a network of like-minded people and organisations to experience the magic of live crowdfunding and to pledge their money, time and skills.

  • LIVE CROWDFUNDING - With an experienced MC at the helm, TFN engages the audience in a short, sharp and effective night of impact storytelling that inspires and spreads the joy of giving.
