first_img Online fundraising service has reported a 14 per cent decrease in the average value of donations for last year compared to 2007. November alone was down 22 per cent on the same month a year previously, indicating that the situation worsened during the year.Chief executive of my Niall Devine said the organisation started to notice a trend of fewer donations from last August/September. As well as fewer donations, the average value of the donations dropped.“The average donation value in November 2007 was €88 through the site, which goes direct to the charity, whereas the average for last November was €52,” he said.Around 200 charities are registered on the website, which has raised more than €2.8 million for charities. Despite the fall in donations, it hopes to raise €2.5 million in 2009. Devine hopes the number of charities on the website will increase to around 280 within the year.“Growth is continuing on, regardless of the recession, but we are now finding that charities have to work harder and be more clever to get the donor and the fundraisers on board,” said Devine. Things have also changed where large donations are concerned.“The days of corporations having large amounts of cash to donate to charities, no matter how worthy the cause, are all but gone for now. Many charities will be forced to reduce their services in line with their new and reduced incomes – and all at a time when the public’s reliance on help from charities is at unprecedented levels.”Devine believes that events based fundraising will become even more important in the downturn. “People are much more likely to engage and get involved in charities if they take on a challenge like a marathon, a run or a mountain climb,” he said.“It’s a much more successful way of fund-raising. If, for example, a random charity asked you for a donation of €100, you’re most likely to say no, but if friends ask you to sponsor them for a walk, swim or hike, chances are you’re going to give that donation. In the end it’s the charity that benefits.” Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Ireland Research / statistics AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 22 February 2009 | News  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgThe Oxford Union today faces a leadership crisis, with both the positions of President and Treasurer left vacant.In a meeting late last night, the Senior Disciplinary Committee ruled to uphold a decision against Roberto Weeden-Sanz, who was revealed last week to have technically resigned as President-Elect under Union rules, after missing three meetings.In addition, it emerged that Antonia Trent, who had taken up office as Treasurer on Saturday of 8th week, had also missed enough meetings to have technically resigned, leaving a further position unfilled.Under Union rule 23 (c)(ii)(2), “Any member of any Committee… having missed three ordinary meetings of that Committee without good reason in the same term, shall be deemed to have submitted his resignation from that Committee.”This rule can be bypassed if there is considered to be ‘good reason’ for absence, “by two-thirds of those present at the first meeting held at least 168 hours after the absence”. ‘Good Reasons’ include sitting University exams, ‘disabling or infectious illness’, a ‘pressing and extraordinary engagement agreed to be unavoidable’ and ‘pursuit of service to the Society…of paramount importance’.When the position of President becomes vacant, it is first offered to the Librarian, who has 72 hours to accept or reject the offer. The current Librarian is Stuart Webber. A vacant Treasurer’s position is offered first to the Secretary, currently Olivia Merrett. If the offers are declined, they are ‘passed down’ to other officers in order, and it is therefore difficult to predict who will fill the vacant positions.One consequence of this is that candidates who unsuccessfully ran for Standing Committee in 7th week of Hilary this year will be offered positions without having been elected.Daniel Johnson, Chair of the Senior Disciplinary Committee, told Cherwell that the Union will release a statement on these matters this weekend.Roberto Weeden-Sanz and Olivia Merret have been contacted but declined to comment.last_img read more

first_imgThe latest addition to the list: Rep. Todd Rokita, an Indiana Republican running in one of next year’s most competitive Senate races.Who knew it could take eight pages of instructions on how to properly escort a member of Congress around his district? Yet there it is, laid out in mind-blowing detail, in a memo obtained by POLITICO that’s sure to make any young, eager-beaver political aide shudder. Eight Pages Of Instructions On How To  Chauffeur A CongressmanPolitico Magazine article written by JOHN BRESNAHAN and RACHAEL BAD Empty his trash. Always have hand sanitizer and gum at the ready. And don’t bother with “unnecessary conversation” — the congressman doesn’t have time for your chitchat.Demanding, high-maintenance bosses are notorious on Capitol Hill. The late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s staff had to walk his dog, poop pick-up and all. Former Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison made her male aides carry her purse. Tasks listed in the document, entitled “Instructions on Staffing and Driving — District Version,” include handing Rokita a cup of black coffee upon picking him up at his home, acting as a physical barrier between him and trackers looking to capture embarrassing footage of the congressman, and “avoid[ing] sudden acceleration or braking” while driving.“The goal is to provide as smooth a ride as possible,” reads the instruction manual, co-authored by a former chief of staff to the congressman and Tim Edson, Rokita’s ex-communications director-turned-campaign spokesman.Drivers are expected to transport not only Rokita’s toothbrush and toothpaste but also stock and tote around the district a nearly 20-item supply box that Rokita’s staffers call “the football.” The contents include gum, hand sanitizer, business cards, bottled water, napkins and Kleenex, lozenges, a stapler and stapler remover, Post-it notes and Shout wipes, among other items.EDITOR”S FOOTNOTE: Here is the Politico Magazine link to the article written by JOHN BRESNAHAN and RACHAEL BADcenter_img FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgHarvard students can buy discount tickets to scores of Boston-area events and attractions starting today (Feb. 10), thanks to a new program piloted by Outings & Innings, the University’s longtime purveyor of fun and recreation.“Our customers can get discounts of up to 50 percent by purchasing in advance,” said Devorah Sperling, manager of Outings & Innings. “It’s a great opportunity for students to save money on leisure entertainment activities.”Outings & Innings, part of Harvard Human Resources, has provided faculty and staff with deals on events, activities, local goods, and the like for more than 30 years. The new program allows undergraduates and graduate students to share in the savings.Students may purchase passes to movies, museums, and seasonal attractions Tuesdays through Fridays at Outing  & Innings’ 9 Holyoke St. office, or at the Harvard School of Public Health’s Kresge Cafeteria on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. (Visit the new student website for office hours and a complete list of what’s on sale.) The first 100 students to visit Outings & Innings, mention the website, and make a purchase of at least $10 will receive a free pass to AMC Loews movie theaters. (A valid student ID is required for all purchases. Outings & Innings accepts only cash for student transactions.)Harvard College Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds, Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and of African and African American Studies, said the new program furthers the University’s goal of providing opportunities to students regardless of income.“We are always looking for ways to encourage our students to take part in the incredible opportunities available at Harvard and within the Boston and Cambridge communities,” she said. “This new program through Outings & Innings provides students with yet another resource and incentive to explore the cultural, intellectual, and recreational opportunities around them.”David Friedrich, assistant dean of Harvard College for student life, said such services pair nicely with those offered by the University’s Student Events Fund (SEF).“SEF anonymously provides complimentary tickets to students who want to attend on-campus events,” he said. Outings & Innings will now give students access to off-campus activities as well at a discounted rate, whether they want to visit a museum or just go to a movie.”With two months of winter weather still ahead, one perk that skiers may want to jump on is discount lift tickets to Wachusett Mountain. Students can ride the MBTA “ski train” that leaves from Porter Square on Saturday and Sunday mornings and be on the slopes less than two hours later.In May, Sperling and her colleagues at Harvard Human Resources will evaluate the pilot program’s success. Sperling said she hopes to be able to permanently extend Outings & Innings services to students, perhaps with expanded offerings and online ordering.“We’re excited to offer these deals to students,” she said. “Our long-term objective is to extend our services to the whole Harvard community.”last_img read more
