Connections for charity

PHILANTHROPY organisation The Funding Network will introduce an innovative fundraising format to Perth next week, aimed at encouraging a broader range of people to contribute to charitable projects.

At the event, to be held at Bankwest in Murray Street, the leaders of four projects for social change will pitch their ideas to a crowd of more than 100 people.

The Funding Network Australia Steering Committee’s national director, Lisa Cotton, says the UK-based organisation follows a membership model whereby members are responsible for not only putting forward, but also selecting the projects to be presented.

It is not just members who are able to attend the presentations and pledge money to the projects; members of the general public are welcome and there is no pressure to give to any of the projects.

The Funding Network founder Fred Mulder said the organisation encouraged a range of donations, from the minimum pledge of $100 to pledges of thousands of dollars.
