Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Charity Commission has published four updated sets of financial ./guidance for charities and their advisers covering risk management; financial difficulties and insolvency; reserves and internal financial controls. The ./guidance has been revised to reflect new developments and the difficult economic climate that charities now face.The Commission’s latest Economic Survey of Charities showed that 47% of charities thought the sector would feel the effects of the recession later than the private and public sectors, and take longer to recover.Andrew Hind, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission said: “Careful management of risks, strong internal financial controls and a clear reserves policy form the cornerstone of a well managed charity. At a time when many charities are reviewing their financial and risk management, it is important that they have the right tools to be able to mitigate risk, overcome financial difficulties and to be clear about how to manage reserves and establish internal financial controls.“In an uncertain economic climate, it is more important than ever for charities to review and actively manage the risks they face. Regardless of a charity’s size, this revised ./guidance is something for all trustees to read.”The four new sets of ./guidance, Charities and Risk Management (CC26); Financial Difficulties and Insolvency (CC12); Charities and Reserves (CC19) and Internal Financial Controls (CC8) supplement other information for charities about financial issues that can be found online.www.charitycommission.gov.uk  59 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Vodafone gives charities 100% of text donations

first_img Tagged with: Digital mobile sms Telephone fundraising Vodafone gives charities 100% of text donations Howard Lake | 9 July 2010 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  46 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Vodafone this week became the first mobile operator in the UK to pass on 100% of all charity donations made via SMS. UK charities will now receive the full amount donated by Vodafone customers when they give £1 or more via a five digit ‘short code’ number which starts with 70.Libby Pritchard, Head of Corporate Responsibility and Reputation at Vodafone UK, said: “Customers find donating via SMS an easy and simple way of supporting charitable causes. Now they can do so knowing that every penny they donate will go to the charity of their choice”.John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, welcomed the development, saying: “This is terrific news. It is very generous of Vodafone to commit to processing donations for free. Donating by text is popular because it is instant and easy for donors but in the past high charges have put donors and charities off. Charities will celebrate this announcement.”Michael Carlin, Managing Director of instaGiv, a mobile donation solutions provider which exhibited at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Convention this week, agreed that this was “wonderful news”. He said: “All operators are now passing 90% + of text donations on to the charities and we hope that Vodafone have set the new benchmark. With the exponential growth and ease of text messaging and direct access to 66m UK mobile phones, donating by text is now a viable fundraising mechanism for charities of all sizes”.There is no change to Vodafone’s SMS rates: customers will continue to pay their standard rate for the SMS to make the donation.The news prompted a call from Irish fundraising consultant and blogger Conor Byrne for Vodafone Ireland and indeed all Irish mobile networks to match the 100% figure (100% donations from 100% of networks).www.vodafone.co.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
