Mass micro-action could be the future for charities

Micro-actions are gathering pace. Vibeka Mair looks at recent examples and explores the key to their success. 

Martin Brookes, chief executive of New Philanthropy Capital

Findings in the new Sunday Times Giving List support Martin Brookes' view that UK fundraisers are not up to standard with high net worth donors, says Vibeka Mair.

Only a smattering of people bothered to show up at the Public Administration Select Committee hearing on bankers and philanthropy on Tuesday, and those that did were almost unanimous in their sympathy for the poor old bankers. Vibeka Mair was there to hear it all.

Is social networking a charity's friend or foe?

Countless articles are written on the positives of social networking for charities, but what happens when Facebookers or tweeters turn against an organisation, ponders Vibeka Mair.

The NCVO pay panel addresses a problem that doesn't exist -- setting up a straw man to beat to a pulp -- and has by its mere existence made it seem that a deep, dark scandal is brewing within the charitable sector. It would have been far better to greet phony media muck-raking with the scornful silence it deserved. Thanks for nothing, folks.

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.

Should charities use chuggers or cold-calling?

It’s unfair for people to complain about 'chuggers' or charity telephone fundraisers - charities have as much right as any other form of business to solicit interest.

Fundraising should be more competitive

Why don't we encourage competitive fundraising?
