The Funding Network ("TFN"), an international, London-based organization that has created a unique "crowd-funding" event model, announced that it will conduct its fourth New York City event today in which three pre-qualified and selected non-profit organizations will make six-minute pitches to potential donors at TFN's live-ly crowd funding events. This is the latest in an ongoing series of events staged throughout TFN's 12 year history during which it has matched donors with projects in the U.K., Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Romania and Bulgaria. The March 11th event will be hosted by Macquarie Group, a global financial services firm and an ongoing partner and supporter of TFN. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased through the TFN website: www.tfn-usa.org. Comedian Christian Finnegan and subway phenomenon "Poorly Made" will be appearing.
A major partner of The Funding Group in Australia since its inception and a supporter of this event is the Macquarie Group Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Macquarie Group, which supports a range of community programs around the world.
