Camden Funding Network

We’re joining up with Camden Giving and The Funding Network to host a live crowdfunding event for local projects pushing for social change. 

The evening will start with drinks and light refreshments. Each non-profit will make a 6-minute pitch for up to £3,000 to fund their project. After the pitches people have the opportunity to give to the projects that appeal to them. 

The four non-profits are:

•    Action Youth Boxing Intervention is a free fitness for children and young people in Somers Town, it combines boxing tutorials with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and supports over 200 young people a year

•    C4WS help homeless people in Camden rebuild their lives be providing support including Winter Night Shelter and employment opportunities

•    Little Village Camden works a bit like a foodbank, but instead of food they provide quality baby products and clothing donated by local families. They are gifts from one family to another

•    Speak Street is a pop-up language café and a positive response to negativity towards immigrants in the UK. They offer free English language classes to immigrants, migrants and asylum seekers

The minimum donation on the night is £20. Your first donation is your £10 ticket, 100% of this will be given to non-profits pitching on the night.
