How does Hackney Giving Live work?
A Hackney Giving Live event begins with informal networking where guests and our three chosen community groups/charities get to know each other over light refreshments.
Once everyone is sitting comfortably, presenters from the three groups make a six-minute pitch about the project they are seeking funding for and take questions from the audience. Pitches and Q&As are strictly timed, giving everyone the same opportunity to make their case.
After the pitches, a Master of Ceremony from The Funding Network (our partner organization) leads the live crowdfunding. People then give to the projects that appeal to them, whether it’s one or all three.
Live crowdfunding makes giving easy and a Hackney Giving Live event typically raises between £8k to £12k in one evening. Examples of projects funded through Hackney Giving Live include:

If you answered yes to all of the questions above, you can apply to be one of the 3 groups to pitch at Hackney Giving Live. Support in how to give a fundraising pitch to a live audience will be provided to the 3 successful groups.
