The best fundraising campaigns, as chosen by the top fundraisers

Not quite as Big Society

It is no surprise that while preparing to cut funding to charities, Nick Hurd is bringing out the old refrain that charities must get themselves in order, says Dan Fletcher. But it's still not right.

Don't bully volunteers if you are facing cutbacks

Volunteers should not be resented for picking up the slack following spending cuts, says Vibeka Mair.

Can YouTube, Amazon and iTunes do more to help charities?

Gareth Jones wonders if charities could be working with the web giants to raise money as well as fighting against them.

Chugging - not really fundraising?

Celina Ribeiro wonders why it is that neither of the major fundraising conventions this year has devoted more than one session to face-to-face fundraising.

Few charities start claiming gift aid as soon as they are founded. To get 3 unblemished years, a charity has to have been going for at least 4 years, so why not make it easier all round and say that GASDS is available only to charities that have been running for 5 years and have not been convicted/penalised for fraud ?

Haiti response 'mystery shopping' findings released

The response of charities to expressions of support and donations to Haiti appeals was far from equal. Jonathon Grapsas begins a mystery shopping exercise.

Lloyds TSB campaigners need to change tack

Gareth Jones argues that the campaign on behalf of the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland is focusing on the wrong issue, and that the Foundation must compromise if it is to prevent Scottish charities' funding shortfall.

Battle for the ethical pound begins - a fight between old charities and social business?

It’s a well-worn warning, but social investment and ethical consumerism are entering a new era of strength in which charities will have to start compete for the ethical pound, rather than the charitable pound. Celina Ribeiro says the battle lines aren’t clear, but traditional charities need to pay attention.

Transparency - the buzz word that bites

Last week’s announcement that the Department for International Development will set up a watchdog for aid spending could portend a new statutory funding world order, says Celina Ribeiro.
