Our weekly round-up of outlandish and interesting information collected from the corners of the charity sector.
The Healing Foundation is seeking to retrieve promised donations from a corporate donor which has gone into administration.
British universities have been proactive in dealing with the recession, according to a new report which reveals a mixed picture in the sector across Europe as a whole.
Voluntary organisations that are facing heightened demand for their services and yet suffering from cashflow shortfalls due to the recession will be able to apply to a new £20m grants fund announced by the government in today’s Budget.
Charities reliant on clothing donations are being hit by companies posing as charities and commercial organisations taking goods as part of legitimate, but often exploitative, relationships with charities.
Surely it's for each organisation to decide whether contract delivery fits with their ethos and business model.
Five million more people could be encouraged to give tax effectively, but awareness remains "shockingly low" among young people, according the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).
Cultural organisations are suffering more from shrinking corporate and individual giving, yet remain more optimistic than others about income levels in the near future, according to a new report.
As donations go, it is among the less conventional, but Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman has agreed to donate his brain to charity when he dies so it can be used for medical research into Parkinson’s Disease.
Last Wednesday, while the world hung on the Chancellor's every word, I was closeted with four others considering something of real significance- the Professional Fundraising Awards. In the past I have been a bit sceptical about the value of awards for doing one’s job – people in charities work because the job needs desperately to be done, not for prizes – so maybe I felt a bit of a fraud when I accepted the invitation. But I was intrigued. And OK, yes, flattered to be asked.
