Event Details

Often described as a mash-up of TEDx and Shark Tank with soul, The Funding Network hosts live crowdfunding events that showcase and celebrate grassroots non-profits and social enterprises using innovative programs to address complex social challenges. At these exciting pitch-and-pledge events, three non-profit leaders share their ideas and programs working to create social change and pitch for 6 minutes. The audience then has the opportunity to ask questions and support their ideas with funding and in-kind support.

We’re thrilled to host our first ever TFN Live Geelong event on Tuesday 17 April, in partnership with Give Where You Live Foundation.

Read about the pitching organisations below and join us at this immersive, engaging and exciting live crowd funding event.


Project #1: Power In You Project

The Power In You Project exists to support and empower individuals batting addiction in the Geelong community to achieve lasting change in their lives. After identifying a gap in the system for people waiting to go into rehab and those that have returned from rehab, Power In You was developed to fill that gap and enable participants to re-engage with the community. They are seeking funding to grow their existing program and provide a supportive environment for people coming out of residential rehabilitation or intensive programs.


Project #2: Ocean Mind

Ocean Mind provides therapeutic surf courses for young people experiencing mental health issues, social isolation and/or disabilities’. By using a mix of evidence-based surf therapy and mentoring courses, they create a therapeutic environment for young people to challenge themselves, improve resilience and self-confidence, and strengthen relationships with family friends and the broader community. They are seeking funding for surfboards, wetsuits and a van to enable the organisation to become a financially independent social enterprise.


Project #3: Norlane Community Initiatives

There is an urgent need for access to affordable, nutritious food in the Norlane area. Developed by the community, for the community Norlane Community Initiatives works to create healthy, sustainable and inclusive neighbourhoods and address community needs including social isolation, family support, food insecurity, health and wellbeing. They are seeking funding to employ an experienced community cultivator to empower locals to engage, develop and deliver food security initiatives including a food cooperative.
