This month's issue of Fundraising Magazine focused on major donor fundraising. Stephen Cotterill highlights some key points about engaging with philanthropists.

When should charities use shock tactics?

Shock tactics have been part of the scenery of the fundraising landscape for decades, but it is a fine line between generating support and garnering negative feedback (or getting banned by the Advertising Standards Authority), says Stephen Cotterill.

The Cabinet Office was the second most generous department, behind DCMS, spending £127m on charities in 2013/14

Central government has published a breakdown of grant spending on the voluntary sector. David Ainsworth breaks down the numbers to find out what they mean.
