There needs to be a rebalancing of the relationship between the voluntary sector and government, shadow minister for civil society Lisa Nandy said today.
The University of Portsmouth Students’ Union has already secured a £15,000 grant since becoming the first student union in the country to register as a charity with the Charity Commission last week.
Door-to-door fundraising recorded the biggest increase in complaints from the public last year, according to the Fundraising Standard’s Board annual report.
When Whizz-Kidz planned its Christmas direct mail appeal last year it cast its net wide. Very wide. Donors who hadn’t given to the charity in ten years suddenly received packs in the post. Re-introducing your charity to long lost donors can be profitable, reports James Allport.
It is incredibly important that charities raise larger concerns about broader issues, rather than only focusing on the immediate situation.
The gap between how inspiring charities’ work can be, and how inspired donors are by their communication from charities, can be huge. Steve Andrews discusses the importance of pure, unadulterated feedback and how the Glass Workshop will be a real-time case study in donor communication.
Adrian Sargeant has been awarded Civil Society's Fundraising magazine award for Outstanding Contribution 2010. The first academic to win the award talks to Celina Ribeiro about what it means, and what challenges he sees ahead for the sector.
Fundraising is all about getting people to do what you want, but who is influencing the influencers? This year’s 50 Most Influential Poll shows that many of the same faces are still holding sway in the sector. Celina Ribeiro reports.
The sector is failing to grow its own fundraising leaders, says Lindsay Boswell. It’s time for charities to start investing in talent and stop being frightened of promoting people.
