Where did it go? How charities are faring in the running costs debate

Charities can be nervous about communicating their costs to the giving public. But what do donors really think about charity costs? Celina Ribeiro looks at public opinion, and how charities have fared with different ‘pence in the pound’ cost propositions.

What do we want? The rise of the campaigning-fundraising charity

In a world long past there were campaigning charities and there were ‘doing’ charities, and never the twain did meet. But in our brave new world, more and more charities are making campaigning a central part of their mission and messaging. Celina Ribeiro looks at what is behind the trend and what it means for fundraising.

Taking flight - Where is stewardship going?

The concept of stewardship experienced a turbulent landing in the UK, but as more charities develop their donor care strategies, Celina Ribeiro asks is it finally taking off?

Wheel of involvement

A Friends of the Earth project that aimed to engage more people in its campaigning agenda presented surprising results, including an increase in financial support, explains Ruth Ruderham.

Strategy is the key to any activity

By making strategic choices about funding in line with our vision, mission and values but before we create detailed project plans we can reduce the time spent writing plans that were never fundable and so will never be implemented. Ruth Ruderham reports.
