Eligibility Checker & Expression of Interest
Is your total organisational turnover less than £1.2million?
You are not eligible - TFN does not support organisations with a turnover above £1.2 million.
Are you (or are you in the process of setting up) a registered charity, CIO, CIC, or other non-profit, in the UK or overseas?
Any organisation limited by shares will need to provide evidence that any profits are reinvested into the organisation and are not made available to shareholders.
You are not eligible - TFN does not support organisations which seek to make a profit.
Does your organisation have a UK bank account or non-profit conduit who can accept funding on your behalf?
TFN will, on occasion and with prior agreement, make payments to international bank accounts. But where ever possible organisations should have either a UK account or a conduit organisation. For more details and to discuss this further please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your organisation involved in the promotion of any specific religion or affiliated to any political party?
You are not eligible - whilst TFN will support organisations rooted in religious or political values we do not support organisations which are actively promoting either.
Does your organisation seek to achieve social change?
You are not eligible - all organisations applying to TFN must be seeking to achieve social change and have the potential to enable enduring positive transformation for individuals, communities, society or the environment over the longer term. For more information please visit the
who we help
section on our website.
Do you know a TFN member who can nominate you / do you have a current supporter who is willing to become a TFN member and nominate you?
TFN was created as a peer-to-peer network. This means all projects applying to TFN must have a sponsor, someone who is not paid by the organisation who is willing to vouch for you, speak in support of your work at the event and pledge the first £250. For our London events, this person must also be a member of TFN. We are now accepting expressions of interest from organisations who do not already know a TFN member and are unable to find a current supporter to join as a member. Please complete the information below if you would like your expression of interest to be sent to TFN members. Bear in mind that there is no guarantee one of them will decide to nominate you, and by far the easiest way to apply to pitch is to have a current supporter join TFN as a member.
Congratulations! At this stage you appear to be eligible to apply to TFN.
