Helping children to reach their full potential.

A Hear and Say First: Live Crowdfunding

Over 100 attendees gathered in June for Hear and Say’s live crowdfunding event. Hosted at EY Brisbane and in collaboration with The Funding Network, this bespoke event brought together a mix of corporate, philanthropic and community supporters to collectively help fund three Hear and Say programs.


With this style of event often referred to as a Shark Tank for charities, we were thrilled to have the former “Sharks” themselves, Dr Glen Richards and Steve Baxter, join with us to help raise over $100,000 in pledges across our Audiology, Early Intervention and Hear to Learn – School Hearing Screening programs.

Three pitches were presented by members of our team, followed by an inspiring and entertaining live crowdfunding session led by Master of Ceremonies, ABC presenter James Valentine. To watch the pitches and to see a highlights reel from this electric event, click here.
