Charities will need to develop new fundraising approaches as giving falls over the next year, according to research commissioned by the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.While the report’s authors say the current environment is too uncertain to make accurate predictions on the outcomes for fundraising, based on Treasury forecasts for economic growth, household giving could drop by 25% in 2020-2021 with the economy affecting most fundraising income streams.Reframing the Ask – trends which will shape giving and fundraising post-Covid19, was authored by Cathy Pharoah, Visiting Professor, Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy, Cass Business School, and Tom McKenzie, Honorary Research Fellow, at the University of Dundee. Advertisementcenter_img Tagged with: COVID-19 Research / statistics It looks at what could influence the outlook for fundraising post-Covid by exploring key areas of fundraising in relation to potential economic growth over the next few years, including household giving and spending, trends in charities’ total voluntary fundraising income, trends in legacies to charities, corporate giving, and trusts and foundations.Looking at pre-pandemic trends and data for giving, it says, will enable charities to develop a better understanding of where we are now and what happened in the last recession, which may provide pointers for the future of fundraising.The findings highlight a need for charities to seek out new opportunities. While household giving, legacy income and corporate giving will be affected by the economic climate, the research points to marked differences in household income and to some households likely to have made significant savings during lockdown, saying some donors may be persuaded to divert savings to charity, while others doing less well may decide to defer rather than cancel their giving.The report states:“Capacity to give will become increasingly polarised as COVID 19 has a more negative effect on some sections of the population than others, and those who can afford to give should be encouraged to do so.”And, while there will be an impact on corporate giving, the report suggests that this may be one area that is less affected, with many companies reducing but not stopping their giving, and many major corporate donors coming from sectors that have continued to do well during the pandemic.It says:“Major corporate donors tend to be in industrial sectors performing well in the FTSE, so future fundraising opportunities may lie with sectors which have grown business during COVID19, such as pharmaceuticals, online retail of essential goods, e-commerce, technology and software.”It also predicts that foundations will be less affected due to growth in their assets pre-pandemic, and their capital reserves.The report concludes:“Recession will not have an equal impact on all parts of society, and we will need to look particularly towards those who can afford to give, and supporting those who are less well-off. The course of economic recovery lies outside fundraisers’ control, but re-framing donor relationships lies within it.”  1,554 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 11 September 2020 | Newslast_img read more

Dembele edges Barca closer to unbeaten season as Real lose at Sevilla

first_imgAlready crowned champions and winners of the Copa del Rey, Barca were controversially denied a guard of honour by Real but Villarreal were happy to perform the ‘pasillo’ as the hosts walked out before kick-off.Valverde left some key players out, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Ivan Rakitic all missing from the starting line-up. Messi, however, was included despite calls for the Argentinian now to be rested ahead of this summer’s World Cup.It meant a start for Dembele, who took his chance to impress with the stand-out performance of the night.Dembele has endured a difficult debut season since joining for 147 million euros from Borussia Dortmund last year but Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said this week he is not for sale, and the 20-year-old delivered the perfect response.“He is a player that has a lot of talent,” Valverde said. “He is fast, he has this spark. All players need a process of adaptation and when you are young you still have to learn. Next year Dembele will be with us.”His run that set up Coutinho’s opener in the 11th minute was arguably the moment of the match as he picked up the ball 10 yards inside Villarreal’s half before driving past three defenders and unleashing a shot.Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo palmed the ball away but only to Coutinho, who was left with a tap-in.Dembele then grabbed a late brace, his first an easy finish after a brilliant run by Rakitic down the right, his second coming after he sped away from Villarreal’s defence, and lifted the ball over the helpess Asenjo.Share on: WhatsApp Barcelona, Spain | AFP | Ousmane Dembele scored twice as Barcelona thrashed Villarreal 5-1 on Wednesday and edged closer to their first ever unbeaten season in La Liga.But Real Madrid slipped to their only league defeat since February as a heavily-rotated side lost 3-2 away at Sevilla.Lionel Messi volleyed in a sumptuous pass from Andres Iniesta at Camp Nou to put Barca three up at half-time after Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho had scored one apiece in the first 16 minutes.The second period, however, belonged to Dembele, who capped an excellent individual display with two goals after the Frenchman’s sensational run had also earlier set up Coutinho.Villarreal managed a consolation when Pablo Fornals’ shot deflected in off Nicola Sansone but any fears Ernesto Valverde’s side would feel the effects of Sunday’s ‘Clasico’ proved unfounded.The league leaders moved 15 points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top while Villarreal stay sixth.The Yellow Submarine are only three points ahead of Sevilla, however, who climbed back into the Europa League qualification spots with a well-deserved win over Real.Zinedine Zidane said he wanted to maintain momentum ahead of their Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26 but Marcelo, Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo were among those not even included in his squad.Sevilla took full advantage as Wissam Ben Yedder, Miguel Layun and a Sergio Ramos own-goal put them three up, before Real substitute Borja Mayoral and a late Ramos penalty late gave Real a flatteringly close result.Barca drew last weekend against Real, despite playing the entire second half with 10 men, and they now need only avoid defeat in matches away at Levante and home to Real Sociedad to complete the campaign as invincibles.It would be the first time a team has finished a 38-game La Liga season unbeaten and the first in any format since Real avoided defeat in a division of only 10 teams in 1932.“In the end we have scored two great goals, we are happy about this and we keep the run going,” Valverde said.last_img read more

On day 3 of Brazeau trial defence focuses on a necklace bra

first_imgJorge BarreraAPTN National NewsDay three of the assault and sexual assault trial of suspended Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau began where the previous day’s proceedings ended, with the defence cross-examining the alleged victim with questions about a necklace.The defence focused on the opening moments of the incident in the third-floor bedroom of the rented Gatineau, Que., home that ended when police arrived shortly after 9 a.m. that Thursday morning on Feb. 7, 2013, following a 911 phone call from a woman inside.Gerard Larocque zeroed in on the minutia of the opening salvos of a conflict the alleged victim says left her scratched and bruised.Larocque asked and re-asked, as an interpreter translated, about the exact moment she yanked off the necklace, which was given to her by Brazeau who said it once belonged to his mother. According to the alleged victim, the events began in full that February 2013 morning in the master bedroom, with its own bathroom, on the third-floor of the house.A tall, lanky man, with salt and pepper hair and black rimmed glasses, Larocque leaned in and out as he questioned the alleged victim who stood to his left facing the white haired and mustachioed Quebec Judge Valmont Beaulieu. At times Larocque focused intently on the alleged victim as he asked her questions, at others he would pull away, take a step or two back and sweep his gaze across the gallery packed with reporters, making eye contact with one or two.The alleged victim again repeated how Brazeau pushed her out of the room, knocking her down in a sitting position at the top of the stairs. She said Brazeau then got on the floor and started pushing her with his feet.“He’s behind you, pushing you, asking for the necklace of his mother?” said Larocque.“Yes,” she said.Then he went back to her previous testimony about having a purple turtle-neck sweater and leopard print bra in her hands when she was pushed out of the bedroom.“When you were on the stairs you had a sweater and bra with you?” said Larocque.“Leaving the bedroom I had the sweater and bra,” she said.“In your hands?” he said.“Yes, leaving, yes,” she said.Then, Larocque pressed her, recalling her previous testimony, on what hand she was using to hold onto the railing post. Was it the right? Which hand?“I remembered I hung on with one hand and two hands,” she said.Larocque then pressed her on the sweater and bra she was holding, that she said previously Brazeau grabbed from her hands later in the alleged attack.The victim said she didn’t remember the details of those moments, only that somehow the bra and sweater ended up on the stairs in front of her and that she grabbed them again as she tumbled down the stairs.“This is a story you have told to police that arrived at the house and later at the police station,” said Larocque. “You have never mentioned you let go of the sweater and bra on the stairs and then you grabbed it again.”She again said, forcefully, she didn’t remember every detail of those heated moments.“I submit that in the bedroom you moved close to my client and you started to hit him with the sweater in one hand and the bra in the other and he grabbed the bra, that is where he grabbed it and that is why you didn’t have it,” said Larocque.“It’s false,” said the woman.Then Larocque rewound the event to where she said it began to get violent. It was in the master bedroom’s bathroom, she testified previously, where she retreated to change her clothes after Brazeau demanded she immediately leave the house.The alleged victim testified she demanded Brazeau leave the bathroom as she was pulling on her jeans and was preparing to change from her tank top into the bra and purple turtle-neck sweater. She said Brazeau pushed her out of the bathroom and bedroom to the top of the stairs where she fell in a sitting position before the fall.This is not what happened, said Larocque.“I suggest that Mr. Brazeau, while in the bedroom, took a phone and dialed a number and spoke into the phone while you were in the bathroom,” said Larocque.“I don’t know,” said the woman.“I suggest that while you were changing Mr. Brazeau made a phone call,” he said.“I don’t remember,” she said.The trial resumes Wednesday afternoon.Brazeau has pleaded not guilty to both assault and sexual assault charges.Tuesday’s court hearing heard testimony from the alleged victim who recounted her dramatic journey from Colombia to [email protected]@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Labrador Inuit turn up the heat on Muskrat Falls energy project

first_img(Under ominous skies, demonstrators block the entrance to the Muskrat Falls construction site in Labrador. Photo courtesy Jacinda Beals)Trina RoacheAPTN National NewsAround 30 people in Labrador, including Nunatsiavut President Johannes Lampe, have blockaded the construction site at Muskrat Falls, a massive $11.4 billion dollar hydroelectric project along the Lower Churchill River.“We aren’t huge numbers here in Labrador,” said Inuk artist Billy Gauthier. “This here turnout shows how strong we are. There will be more. We will do more.”Gauthier, 38, began a hunger strike Thursday.Gauthier and the Labrador Inuit are demanding the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the provincially owned energy company Nalcor fully clear the reservoir of all trees and topsoil before flooding begins.“The government, I just don’t understand why they don’t step in and fix it?” said Gauthier. “Why waste time? Why put people in a position where they feel like they need to fight for their rights? For their culture?”Muskrat Falls demonstration outside construction site. Photo courtesy Justin Brake/The IndependentThe main concern is methylmercury. A study by Harvard University predicts that trees, vegetation, and topsoil left in the flood zone will create the toxin and flow downstream, contaminating traditional food sources for the Inuit.President of the Nunatsiavut Government Johannes Lampe, who is at the blockade now, released a statement Friday calling on the province to clear the reservoir.“Despite our concerns, those who have the authority to make changes, including the Prime Minister and the Government of Canada, to the scope of the project are not willing to do so, and would rather stand by and allow our people to be poisoned and destroy a way of life,” said the statement. “If this project proceeds without changes, there will never be true reconciliation in this country.”On Saturday, while Gauthier was at the blockade, he received a call from Vice-President of the Lower Churchill Project, Gilbert Bennett.“He mentioned to me that he didn’t believe that there is any proof that methylmercury was going to move through out ecosystem the way the Harvard studies prove,” said Gauthier.Gauthier said Bennett assured him flooding had not yet begun but was given no assurance that Nalcor would clear the flood zone first.“I will starve myself,” said Gauthier, hitting day three of his hunger strike. “I’m basically crying out to everybody, screaming that we need help. To get government the Nalcor to give us a safe project. To make it right. We need anybody and everybody to stand.”And momentum is building in what many are now calling an eleventh hour battle over a project many have called a boondoggle.Muskrat Falls demonstration in Labrador. Photo courtesy Jacinda BealsOn Friday, the mayor of Cartwright sent a letter to federal and provincial leaders, including the Prime Minister.“I write to you all today to add my voice and the voice of my community to the growing level of discontent with the Muskrat Falls Project as we approach the first flood of the reservoir,” wrote Dwight Lethbridge. “My community of Cartwright, Labrador has decided to take a hard line stand on the methyl mercury issue, based on the concerns of our residents over the potential loss of country foods, culture, and an unknown impact on fish resources very important to our area.”And though the Muskrat Falls project falls under provincial jurisdiction, Lethbridge added that there is a role in this for the federal government.“You are allowing the demolition of an Innu and Inuit food source and culture,” wrote Lethbridge.At a town meeting last week, residents were clear in the action they plan to take against Nalcor.“Our community is to be used as a port for the delivery of transformers to Muskrat Falls,” said Lethbridge. “As things sit right now, until this methyl mercury issue is addressed, that shipment will not be happening through here.”The blockade at Muskrat Falls continues. People have set up tents, with no plans to go anywhere, anytime soon.RCMP are at the site, but no arrests reported so far.Another rally is planned Monday outside Newfoundland and Labrador’s legislature building in St. John’s with the slogan, “Flood the steps, not the reservoir.”“My people will not be poisoned,” said Gauthier. “It’s crunch time and you know what? This is it. We’re taking action now. We keep making more steps to make the right thing happen. Now we need Nalcor to make the right steps.”Inuit artist Billy Gauthier.In an email response to APTN, Nalcor wrote, “The protesters prevented the buses with local workers on the day shift from upper Lake Melville from accessing the work site and getting to work this morning.”Nalcor confirms that flooding has not yet begun, but work is ongoing.“It’s important to note it is not one sole activity to create the reservoir. Much like the process for river diversion completed earlier this summer, creating the reservoir involves a number of steps over a period of time. Impoundment will take place when all facilities and equipment are ready for operation.”This is a process, Nalcor says, that could begin at any time and continue through 2016. Nalcor made no mention of stopping this work to clear the reservoir.No word yet from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.NunatuKavut President Todd Russell, will be holding a news conference Monday morning.Russell represents the Southern Inuit of Labrador and was arrested along with several others at a Muskrat Falls protest in [email protected]last_img read more
