What is The Funding Network?
The Funding Network runs exciting face-to-face fundraising events that provide a platform for organisations to present their work to those interested in supporting enterprising social change. Donations are secured during a lively pledging session but can also be made anonymously on the night.
The Funding Network focuses on showcasing social change projects, which address the root causes of an issue or pioneer new ways of tackling problems and that actively promote change.
This is a unique opportunity for small, enterprising social change organisations to pitch their projects to prospective funders face-to-face and realise their funding on the night.
Since its inception in 2004, The Funding Network – Bristol has supported 55 local and 11 international organisations, raising just over £275,000 for social impact.
How do I apply?
We will focus on projects that are working for the Bristol community and are based in Bristol. You do not have to be registered charity but you must have clear charitable aims, culture and ethos. Organisations selected for the fundraising event will normally be small or medium-sized, where around £4,000 would make a useful contribution either to a particular piece of work or to the organisation’s core costs.
