Charities Aid Foundation and the United Nations are running a two-week campaign on the London Underground to get people to donate to charities tax-efficiently.
NCVO met with music licensing body PPL last week to discuss its concerns over forthcoming licensing charges for charities that play recorded music in public.
The Institute of Fundraising is mustering support for a sector-wide public-facing campaign that will reinforce the message that fundraisers have every right to ask for money on behalf of beneficiaries.
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.
Charities could see a spike in giving from major donors following the top tax rate change in April.
A report last week predicting that giving could be boosted by £74bn by the introduction of two major donor-centric reforms has come under fire by consultant Joe Saxton.
Bullying UK has attacked fellow anti-abuse charity Beatbullying and schools minister Ed Balls for a week of "public relations disasters" which it says has damaged the anti-bullying sector.
The suggestion that £74bn could be pumped into charities via remainder trusts and a new type of trust, as proposed by a paper last week, is not supported by either evidence or demand, says Joe Saxton.
