Event fundraisers ‘losing £195 million a year’ by not using online sponsorship

first_imgEvent fundraisers ‘losing £195 million a year’ by not using online sponsorship About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Research by online sponsorship company Bmycharity reveals that each year fundraising events could raise £140 million more in Gift Aid while saving £55 million in banking and administration costs simply by using online sponsorship tools.Bmycharity says that its research shows that almost all charities are still failing to make the most of the efficiency and effectiveness gains delivered by online sponsorship fundraising. By channelling existing sponsorship income through online fundraising services the sector as a whole could each year claim £140 million more Gift Aid and reduce administrative and banking costs by a further £55 million.Ben Brabyn, Managing Director of Bmycharity, believes that, although a growing number of charities are using online sponsorship services, most are keen to offer these as an additional service to make fundraising easier for time-poor supporters. He points out that the biggest benefits are the dramatic increases in Gift Aid reclaimed and the efficiency savings in administration. Bmycharity’s research shows that this can amount to an additional £200 for every £1,000 raised.

Yet Brabyn is convinced that it is the most cost-effective way to reach a growing proportion of event sponsors. Bmycharity has found that sponsors who do donate online are mostly 20-40 years old and professional, a valuable audience for many charities.Having conducted the research, Brabyn believes that event fundraising managers should be asking themselves “how can we encourage our event participants to collect as much of their sponsorship money online as possible?”The research was conducted in-house over the last 6 months. The £140 million of additional Gift Aid is derived from comparing the Giving Campaign’s figures for sponsored event Gift Aid reclaim (at 20% of the net donated funds by value) with the average experience of Bmycharity and Justgiving over the last three years of a little over 70%. The difference – (70%-20%)x 28.2% – is multiplied by the CAF figure for UK annual sponsored event fundraising of £1 billion – giving a Gift Aid increase of £140 million.The £55 million saving is based on an analysis of the average banking, administrative and data capture and fundraising support costs of a sample of charities that Bmycharity has studied. Bmycharity acknowledges that, while the figure is broadly accurate for the sector as a whole, this benefit will vary significantly from charity to charity since it is dependent on the existing cost structure of the organisation.One benefit which wasn’t quantifiable wasthe value of data capturing the results from online sponsorship fundraising: donors rather than charity staff will have entered the details of their address and data protection preferences. This will be in a form that provides scope for detailed profiling and data mining and improved online and offline targeting. Howard Lake | 19 July 2004 | Newslast_img read more

At a special PR Forum event in London, organised by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, charities were urged to promote their causes by working through this rapidly growing medium.By the end of last year the sale of women’s weekly magazines were pushing 10 million, a rise of over 25% over the last four years. For example, real life title Pick Me Up is selling almost half a million copies a week a mere year after its launch making it the most successful magazine launch for a decade. Deepa Shah, ex-Senior Writer at Closer magazine, said: ‘It’s a thriving market with new weeklies being launched every month and with ever more pages to be filled there are ever more opportunities for those who know how to target it.’ It takes careful planning and a real understanding of the magazine’s readers but as Nicola Ryan, Media & PR Officer for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: ‘If you have people affected by your cause who are willing to be interviewed by women’s magazines, you can get important messages about your charity to these hard to reach audiences.’ Advertisement  16 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

New York City: Activists welcome Bolivarian leader

first_imgJorge Arreaza, minister of foreign affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, was greeted with cheers and applause on Sept. 26 as he entered Holyrood Episcopal Church/Iglesia Santa Cruz in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. Arreaza spoke at the invitation of the church’s Ministry of Solidarity with the Peoples. The occasion was a welcoming meeting in solidarity with the Venezuelan delegation to the United Nations General Assembly. The event was organized by a broad coalition of anti-war and anti-imperialist organizations to show support for Venezuela as it faces deadly U.S. sanctions and the threat of military intervention. Arreaza described the history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the coups it has backed. The United States is now trying to get other countries to invade Venezuela after the recent activation of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR), also known as the Rio Treaty, by the Organization of American States. A 1947 agreement among many countries of the Americas, including the U.S., the treaty states that an attack against one member is to be considered an attack against all. But it is the U.S. that is attacking Venezuela! Venezuela hasn’t attacked any nation.Arreaza said other belligerent actions of the U.S. government, along with invoking the TIAR treaty to go after Venezuela, are causing the people of Venezuela to appeal to the people of the U.S. to “stop the war against Venezuela, stop the war against Iran.” He noted that Venezuela is a country full of many riches, including gold, petroleum and other minerals. While it has been oppressed by Britain, Spain and the U.S., “We are going to be completely independent,” Arreaza affirmed. He noted that Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Venezuela are resisting U.S. economic war, defending their sovereignty and the freedom of the Latin American and Caribbean region.Gail Walker of IFCO/Pastors for Peace, who chaired the meeting, said the Bolivarian Republic is now under the same kind of attack that Cuba has faced. “As we have stood in solidarity with Cuba, we stand in solidarity with Venezuela,” she stated to applause.Father Luis Barrios, pastor of Holyrood Church/Iglesia Santa Cruz, gave a warm welcome to the crowd, declaring “La lucha sigue” — the struggle continues. Roger Wareham of the December 12 Movement, who introduced Arreaza, connected the situation in Venezuela to that in Zimbabwe and other countries facing U.S. sanctions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A large part of the charge sheet was submitted by the central agency in electronic form owning to ecological concerns. The charge sheet has been filed against actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty, Agisilaos Demetriades (brother of Arjun Rampal’s partner Gabriella Demetriades) and former Dharma Productions employee, Kshitij Prasad, along with 28 others. Of the 33 accused, eight are still in custody. Chakraborty, arrested on September 7, is accused of procuring drugs for the late actor. The NCB had also accused her of being part of a drug syndicate. “She is not part of drug dealers. She has not forwarded the drugs allegedly procured by her to somebody else to earn monetary or other benefits”, Justice Sarang Kotwal had observed while granting bail to Chakraborty a month later. The charge sheet includes the statements of approximately 200 witnesses. The agency says, it has relied heavily on the seizure of narcotics (Charas, Ganja, LSD, Ecstacy) and psychotropic substances (Alprazolam and Clonazepam) covered under the provisions of section 20(b), 22, 23 of NDPS Act from the accused, voluntary disclosure statements and technical evidence i.e connectivity through Call details, WhatsApp Chats and details of bank accounts/financial transactions. “During investigation, several seizures of various narcotics drugs and psychotropic substances, electronic gadgets and Indian as well as foreign currency were affected. The technical gadgets and the mobile phones were analysed and the relevant incriminating evidence regarding the sale, purchase, procurement, consumption and possession of narcotics drugs were extracted. Drugs seized were sent for chemical examination, “the agency has said. The accused have been charged for offences under sections 8(c), 20(b)(ii), 22, 27A, 28, 29 and 30 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Section 27A of the Act relates to the offence of “financing illicit trade” and “harbouring” of a person engaged in such trade. This is a serious offence, punishable with a minimum of ten years imprisonment. The NCB, on Friday, made it clear that they were further investigating the case. Next Storylast_img read more

The petitions were filed today morning.Deshmukh raises the following arguments to challenge the judgment passed by a division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni on April 5 :The order was passed without hearing Deshmukh. The ex-parte procedure adopted by the Court caused prejudice.The Court did not take into account the fact that Maharashtra Government has revoked the general consent given to CBI.The Court did not give an opportunity for the State Police Machinery to respond to the allegations.The Court did not take into account the fact that Param Bir Singh made the allegations immediately after he was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner.CBI enquiry is ordered under Article 226 in exceptional circumstances after the failure of state police is demonstrated. However, no opportunity was given to the State Police to deal with the matter. As per Supreme Court precedents, CBI investigation is ordered after the State Police investigates the matter at the first instance.The Court did not consider the non-exhaustion of alternate remedy of approaching the Magistrate under Section 156(3) of CrPC.The plea states :”In the annals of judicial history, there has hardly been an occasion when the court has taken the statements made against a sitting minister at face value and proceeded to direct an outside agency, without calling for a response from the minister, to conduct a preliminary inquiry. These allegations wele made after the erstwhile commissioner of police was transferred, and evidence sought to be created with intent. These aspects require to be looked into before the Court took the extreme step of directing a preliminary enquiry by the CBI”.Deshmukh takes objection to the fact that the High Court did not opt to follow the well settled procedure of ordering a court-monitored investigation by a Special Investigation Team constituted by it, instead of handing over the investigation to an agency “controlled by the Central Government”.It is also highlighted in the petition that Parambir Singh’s allegations are not substantiated and are motivated. Had the Court given an opportunity to him to respond, he could have demonstrated the falsity of the allegations, Deshmukh says in the plea.”The erstwhile Commissioner of police has referred to alleged conversations by others, which is pure hearsay, not produced any substantive evidence before Court, that can, in law, be relied upon, and without giving notice to the Petitioner, has handed over investigation to an agency which the State Government has least confidence in. If this principle were to be followed, and courts under Article 226 of the Constitution were to accept bald and motivated statements of this nature, made much after the alleged incidents, without any actionable evidence before Court, then the Petitioner believes that such processes may well be followed to destabilize governments”, the plea states.The Bombay High Court on Monday directed CBI to complete the preliminary enquiry within 15 days and decide the further course of action regarding the registration of FIR following that.Deshmukh  resigned hours after the Bombay High Court’s Order. The High Court had  held that an un-biased probe is required to “unearth the truth.”Observations by the High CourtThe Bombay High Court observed that the allegations made by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh against the Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh are of a “serious nature”, which warrant a preliminary enquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation. “Prima facie, the issues are such that the very faith of citizens in the functioning of the police department is at stake”, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni held.Some of the crucial observations made by the Court in the judgment are as follows :”If there is any amount of truth in such allegations, certainly it has a direct effect on the citizens’ confidence in the police machinery in the State. Such allegations, therefore, cannot remain unattended and are required to be looked into in the manner known to law when, prima facie, they indicate commission of a cognizable offence”.”It is, hence, certainly an issue of credibility of the State machinery, which would stare at the face when confronted with the expectations of the law and when such complaints are received against high ranking public officials. This Court cannot be a mere spectator in these circumstances””Thus, when high officials are likely to be involved and a question of public confidence in the impartial working of the State agencies arises, the writ court in exercise of its jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution is certainly not powerless to order such inquiry and investigation by the CBI””To instill public confidence and safeguard the Fundamental Rights of the citizens, it is necessary that an inquiry and investigation is conducted by an independent agency and for such reasons, we consider it to be in the paramount public interest that an independent probe in the present circumstances would meet the ends of justice”.The bench rejected the objections raised by the Advocate General of Maharashtra AG Kumbhakoni against the maintainability of the PILs seeking CBI investigation into the allegations raised by Parambir Singh against Deshmukh. The bench noted that one of the petitioners, Dr.Jaishree Patil, had lodged a complaint before the police seeking action on the allegations made by Singh against the Home Minister. However, no legal action followed on Dr.Patil’s complaint.The bench said that the serious nature of the allegations and the issue of public faith in police machinery in the State justified the demand for CBI investigation. “…it is indeed unheard of and unprecedented that a Minister could be so openly accused of wrongdoings and corrupt practices by none other than a senior police officer attracting wide attention from all and sundry””There is certainly a legitimate public expectation of a free, fair, honest and impartial inquiry and investigation into such allegations which have surfaced in the public domain. The necessity to have a probe into such allegations by an independent agency, would also certainly be a requirement of the rule of law. To instill public confidence and safeguard the Fundamental Rights of the citizens, it is necessary that an inquiry and investigation is conducted by an independent agency and for such reasons, we consider it to be in the paramount public interest that an independent probe in the present circumstances would meet the ends of justice” “Here, Shri Deshmukh is the Home Minister. The police department is under his control and direction. There can be no fair, impartial, unbiased and untainted probe, if the same were entrusted to the State Police Force. As of necessity, the probe has to be entrusted to an independent agency like the CBI”. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

FBLA members raise funds, lend support to injured student

first_img The family chosen was the family of Jacquerean “Jay” Marshall.Marshall, a member of the CHHS football team, was seriously injured when he was shot in the face in July. As a result of the injury, he lost his eyesight and is now enrolled at the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind in Talladega.Throughout the school year, a few individual projects have been completed that will hopefully contribute to the improvement of home and community, Sanders said. The Charles Henderson High School FBLA group held a send-off party for Jay Marshall as he was leaving to go to school AIDB.

All because they wanted to help it be huge success for Jay and his family.”Sanders’ students said the opportunity to do something for Jay Marshall and his family gave them a different perspective on life and a greater appreciation for life.“ This experience has opened my eyes in many ways,” said Stephon Moore, a senior football player. “Jay was more than just a classmate; he was like my brother. Starting summer football with my ‘bros’ was amazing. Little did we know a couple of us would never finish summer practice. Hearing that Jay got shot shocked me tremendously, I couldn’t believe it.“Going through this experience made me realize that a lot of people don’t appreciate some of the stuff they have. Life is a gift and it can be changed at any time. Learn to appreciate the little things like being able to see or to hear, because I guarantee you, Jay would do anything to have those moments back.”Susan Sapp, senior, said the experience had changed her life also.“This experience has changed me into a better person. I was a part of something that changed someone’s life as well,” Sapp said. “I feel like I have the power to change the world. Volunteering for Jacquerean was the best thing I’ve ever done. Just being there, and around him, inspires me to continue helping out and giving back.”The opportunity to give back has brought the CHHS students together as a community and a family.“It’s great to know that we are a family at Charles Henderson,” said Alex Jackson, junior cheerleader. “Jacquerean is an outstanding individual and I am thankful for the opportunity to know people like him. I hope to gain the knowledge and joy he portrays in his everyday life.”Marah-Katelin Davis, FBLA vice president, and Nick Lewis, a junior football player, said the experience brought them to the realization that one’s life can change unexpectedly at any time. They are now more appreciative and grateful for what they have.Even students who did not know Marshall prior to the shooting benefited from participating in the fundraising and support efforts.“Although I didn’t know him, it made me feel good to help him and his family out by helping with the yard sale,” said Lexi Sanders, FBLA historian. “ This experience has made me realize what I have and that I am very blessed.”Sidney Armstrong, FBLA parliamentarian is blessed also by having participated in the FBLA projects for Marshall and his family.“This experience changed the way I look at things now,” Armstrong said. “The way I live every day not knowing if anything like that is going to happen to me. I live everyday like it’s my last because, if I don’t, I may regret not doing something later. Although I never met Jay, donating things to help him made me feel really good.”Maya Thomas, junior, summed the experience up in a few words.“Life is like a box of chocolates. You don’t know what you are getting until you take a bite,” she said. Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img read more

Man allegedly detonates two explosive devices at Sam’s Club in Southern California: Police

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ONTARIO, Calif.) — A 49-year-old man is in custody for allegedly detonating two explosive devices in a Southern California Sam’s Club on Thursday, police said.Each device detonated at the Sam’s Club in Ontario — about 40 miles east of Los Angeles — and ignited a small fire, the Ontario Police Department said.“Sam’s Club employees acted quickly and used fire extinguishers to put out the flames,” police said.Police said no one was injured.Witness Norman Svikss described the explosion as a “low sound” with no smoke, reported ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles.“Then the employees start running around and then they slowly said, ‘Hey, we have to evacuate the building,’ because it’s fire or something,” Svikss said.The suspect, Hugo Gonzalez of Fontana, allegedly fled the scene and was pulled over after a short pursuit, The Los Angeles Times reported. Gonzalez was then taken into custody. Police said Thursday that a motive was unclear and it appeared he acted alone.Authorities found more materials similar to those used in the devices in the car Gonzalez was driving, police said. Authorities also responded to an apartment in Fontana — which is near Ontario — believed to be associated with Gonzalez.It was not immediately clear if Gonzalez had legal representation.Both the Sam’s Club and Gonzalez’s home have since been cleared, Ontario police spokesman William Russell told ABC News Friday.A Sam’s Club spokesperson told ABC News in a statement, “We are relieved that an arrest has been made in this case and thankful that no one in our club was injured. The local authorities have done an outstanding job. We will continue to assist law enforcement however we can and are referring all requests for additional information to them.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
