The December 2013 edition of Charity Finance magazine is the 200th issue.  To celebrate, the team at Civil Society Media hosted a party on the 31st Floor of Centre Point, central London.  Editor-in-chief and founder of the magazine, Daniel Phelan, reflected on the journey so far. This is the full text of his speech.


At risk of growing up

Trustees will have to pay heed to entrepreneurs from other sectors and take risks if they wish to see results, says Daniel Phelan.

Telegram to Sam

Sam Younger will have to use his talents wisely to navigate the stormy seas after Hind's departure, says Daniel Phelan, and don't expect any waves of funding.

Flexibility and stability in the changing workplace

The findings of our 2010 Charity IT Survey and CFDG's annual salary and employment survey offers some interesting pointers about the changing nature of the workplace, says Daniel Phelan.

Income and inflation

Cash isn't looking a very good bet against other types of investment right now, surmises Daniel Phelan.

Remote control

Civil Society surveys lend understanding to why remote working helps the voluntary sector tick, says Daniel Phelan.

Catholic Care must pursue the activities that its donors intended

Catholic Care's trustees would be breaking the law if they did not spend donations on activities that advance the Catholic faith - even if those activities are discriminatory in civil law - says Hal Broadbent.
