Will the withdrawal of child benefit to higher rate taxpayers in 2013 hit committed giving now?

Cuts to child benefit payments to the rich could provide a challenge to charities trying to fundraise from this demographic, but it's not the end of the world, says David Burrows.

Website design acts as the online face of your charity

David Burrows explores the possibility that donors may still judge a book by its cover, or a charity by its website.

It's official - over half of 65-74s are now online

The internet is officially no longer the realm of the young and techie. It's time for fundraisers to own their charity's online presence, says David Burrows.

Want to raise your charity’s profile for free? Announce you are being abolished... Last week saw two stories getting a lot of PR coverage: the announcement of the possible abolition of cheques and the retirement of Terry Wogan from the Radio 2 breakfast show. Whilst Tel’s retirement was always going to be big news I am surprised at the huge amount of publicity around cheques.

Why aren't charities offering multi-way online conversations between stakeholders?

If a local comprehensive school can offer multi-way online dialogues between teachers, students and parents, why can't charities offer something similar for their supporters and volunteers? It really is time charities caught up with the curve, says David Burrows.
