On Tuesday the 6th of February, the Young Funding Network (YFN), the LSE Volunteer Centre and LSE SU RAG will be coming together to support three innovative non-for-profits: TERN, Britain has Class and Healthy Living Club.

The YFN, part of The Funding Network, supports new ideas towards making social change in an exciting and effective way. They host several crowdfunding events throughout the year in London and we will be working together to bring you a fantastic night on the 6th.

What can you expect on the night?

YFN at LSEOn the night, new or developing UK non-profits in need of support, will pitch their project and answer your questions. All you have to do is raise your hand during the live crowdfunding to  contribute your £10 ticket to the project of your choice. You can also donate your time and skills to the projects.

We will have a special guest speaker, Josh Babarinde, Founder of Cracked It and LSE alumnus. Cracked It is a social enterprise that delivers programmes teaching at risk youth how to repair cracked iPhone screens and how to market their skills. The not-for-profit also received support from the YFN. From pitches to pledging with a cheap bar and some tasty snacks, this is sure to be an entertaining evening.

How to purchase your ticket?

You can buy your tickets at the Santander branch on the LSE Campus. Santander will match the money raised by the ticket sale, so for every £10 ticket you buy, they’ll give the organisations £10 extra. If you can’t buy your ticket at Santander you can also buy it online. However, Santander does not match fund these tickets so please buy them in the bank if you can. For any more details, you can visit the event page on CareerHub.
