Organisations which receive most of their money from public funds should not be called charities, Frances Crook, chief executive for the Howard League for Penal Reform, told the Conservative Party Conference this morning.
Charitable foundations should work together better and relieve some of the pressure felt by fundraisers, says Dan Corry.
After an unprecedented summer of media and public scrutiny, the sector needs to change, says Richard Turner. Fundraisers can win the public and increase the amounts they raise at the same time.
Members of the House of Lords have called for tighter regulation of fundraising, which would see the Fundraising Standards Board replaced, during the third reading of the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill yesterday.
The move to longer term funding is great; this is one of the biggest complaints we get from the young people that we work with; they often ask "why is it that as soon as they get a project/activity that we like and benefit from, it gets taken away."

Charities could need to declare they are regulated organisations before being allowed to campaign online, the man leading the review of the Lobbying Act suggested yesterday.
The Institute of Fundraising and the Public Fundraising Association have appointed Mike Smith as joint head of media and public affairs, in a further indication of a closer connection between the two bodies.
The number of gamers is on the rise, but charities remain shy of the burgeoning market. Reuben Turner says there are opportunities for a new kind of fundraising relationship in the virtual realm.
