Should a charity's name explain what it does?

Gareth Jones asks if we are seeing a trend for charity names to explain clearly what the organisation does.

Food for thought: Younger’s views on regulating a changing sector

Gareth Jones hears Sam Younger suggest again that changes to the way charities are classified may be necessary.

Does this church grant rumour offer clues to future funding?

Gareth Jones asks whether the suggestion of a £5m government grant for the Church Urban Fund is a portent of things to come.

Is NCVO aiming too high on volunteering?

NCVO launched its election manifesto at its annual conference yesterday, and the call for all workers to be given five days paid time off in order to volunteer seems rather unrealistic.

It comes to something if a charity CEO cannot go off on a pointless vanity massaging overseas jaunt without people getting shirty and jealous. He would have been letting himself and other CEOs down if he hadn't gone.

Taking control of costs

As government funding inevitably dries up, charities will increasingly have to fall back on their own ingenuity to leverage their assets effectively and to manage costs. Gareth Jones explains.

Civil Society comes of age

The NCVO’s annual conference is always one of the most lively, stimulating and well-attended events in the sector’s calendar and 2009’s jamboree was no exception.

The sector's darling

It was widely criticised as a dull Budget. It says a lot about the importance of style over substance in modern politics that David Cameron thought.

No hope?

In the two months since Charity Finance last appeared, there has been no shortage of reports and announcements. But on closer examination, Gareth Jones wonders is there anything that is really new?
