The Institute of Fundraising has announced that it has changed the venue of its annual National Fundraising Convention from the London Hilton Metropole to the Barbican Centre.
Dame Esther Rantzen told an audience of fundraisers yesterday that many of their practices were "harassing" and that "it's a shame it took a death" to make the sector realise that it "obviously" needs to change.
The votes have been counted. The results are in. The 50 Most Influential People in Fundraising are unveiled and the number one is not who you think it is.
Less than two weeks are left to vote in Fundraising Magazine’s 50 Most Influential poll, with Mark Astarita looking likely to be toppled from his perch this year.
We asked four fundraisers to select their favourite campaigns from 2014. They could choose anything, whether from the charity, commercial or political sectors, fundraising or awareness-raising, from the UK or abroad.
The government should at least double the amount charities can claim through the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme and allow gift aid on society lotteries, the Institute of Fundraising has said in its manifesto.
For the third year in a row, the British Red Cross director of fundraising Mark Astarita has been voted the most influential person in fundraising.
