The FRSB is not a greyhound, but an unloved camel

Welcome, Alistair McLean, new chief executive of FRSB. I have been racking my brains to find common ground between greyhound racing and fundraising. Nothing comes to mind except profound and very personal gratitude that it is not the custom to take old, underperforming fundraisers round the back of the kennels and shoot us.

Fundraising -Thai style

Christmas greetings come with a reminder that fundraising (in its broadest sense) is a cultural activity. People everywhere have a strong sense that givers are blessed by giving. Our man on the Laos border says: “Each morning throughout Thailand monks from Buddhist temples go out to the local areas to collect alms from devotees. In the village of Don Wai where Sarnelli House is situated the Buddhist temple is small compared to other temples and the villagers give food each morning to the monks and in return they receive a blessing.

Why fundraise?

Many people who work on the service delivery side of charities see fundraising as demeaning to their clients. They would like to do away with us fundraisers and replace us with government funding based on human rights.

Credit crunch Christmas

Our editor, Tania, has kindly asked me to blog because she knows I have strongly held views, frequently robustly expressed.Just between you and me, I think she considers me opinionated.Since this is our first encounter, I am anxious to engender in you, fellow fundraiser, an altogether more charitable impression. So as it's Christmas, the season of goodwill toward all people, and just as excitingly the season of panto, I want to beguile you with a piece linking Tinkerbell, charity donors and – since we are approaching Christmas against the background of truly impressive financial crisis, I thought I would throw in some bankers and securitised investments for good measure.
