It is a snapshot view of a sample of fundraisers (49 questionnaires were returned) who chose to engage with the research on the day.The smaller the fundraising budget, the greater the likelihood of expecting a change in the overall income, the greater the expectation for a decrease rather than an increase in income, and the greater the expected percentage drop in income.Nine in ten organisations (92%) identify income streams that are being hit especially hard –‘Government’ (55%) tops the list, followed by ‘Corporates’ (33%)and ‘Events’ (16%). The organisations say ‘Individuals’ (14%) and ‘High donors’ (12%) will be hit to a much lesser extent.Nearly all organisations (86%) are expecting their overall income to change and almost every organisation (92%) has income streams that are being hit hard. Two-thirds of organisations (66%) plan for some increase in certain fundraising streams, especially ‘Regular givers’, ‘Individuals’, ‘Events’ and ‘Churches’.There is a positive outlook on fundraising activity with nearly everyone reporting an increase in the effort to raise money.The survey was carried out by the Public Communications Centre where the full report can be obtained.www.pcc.ie Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Ireland recession Research / statistics Howard Lake | 20 April 2009 | News Irish fundraising feels the recession read more

Donate by action, not money, urges The DoNation

first_img Tagged with: Digital Events Justgiving Howard Lake | 12 May 2011 | News Giving money is not the only way to show your support for a friend who is running a marathon or another event in aid of a charity. Online environmental organisation The DoNation now encourages people to show their support not by making a financial donation but by committing to take environmental action.Their site takes the model of online sponsorship that is now well established in the UK with sites like JustGiving, Bmycharity, VirginMoneyGiving, and the new BT MyDonate. But it adapts it by using the social and viral nature of sponsorship to reach and motivate the widespread public to make simple steps towards more sustainable lives.It suggests a range of core green actions that people can take to reduce their carbon emissions. These range from eating less meat, cycling to work, or washing your clothes at 30°C, to installing solar panels.Hermione Taylor, founder of The DoNation, said: “The DoNation is about making things happen by socialising green issues and supporting friends with meaningful action. CO2 is our currency, rather than cash, so people raising sponsorship can set targets and their friends can see what tangible contribution their supporting action is having, both individually and collectively. But our overall aim is broader than just carbon, as the actions offered address wider sustainability, not just carbon dioxide.”The DoNation provides motivation and encourages permanent change of habits, and the social nature of the site is designed to add gentle peer pressure, encouraging users to keep their commitments.Taylor’s aim is for The DoNation to become the principle environmental sponsorship tool, providing users with an engaging voice through which they can motivate friends and family to adopt proactive solutions to climate change.www.thedonation.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Donate by action, not money, urges The DoNation  44 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.

American Ethanol and Gateway Motorsports Park Bring NASCAR Back to St….

first_img SHARE American Ethanol and Gateway Motorsports Park Bring NASCAR Back to St. Louis Home Energy American Ethanol and Gateway Motorsports Park Bring NASCAR Back to St. Louis By Andy Eubank – May 20, 2014 Officials for Gateway Motorsports Park have announced that American Ethanol will serve as the NASCAR™ Camping World Truck Series “Drivin’ for Linemen 200” official presenting sponsor. The event marks NASCAR’s first visit to the St. Louis area since the 2010 racing season.“We’re pleased to bring the farmers behind American Ethanol to Gateway Motorsports Park here in the heart of America’s corn country,” said Larry Hasheider, Okawville, Illinois, farmer and chairman of the Illinois Corn Marketing Board. “This race provides a great way to remind race fans that they have a choice in fuel with more retailers offering higher ethanol blends like E15 and E85.”In 2010, NASCAR embraced the desire for greener, American-job-producing fuels when it announced its decision to move to an ethanol racing fuel called Sunoco Green E15 for NASCAR’s three national series. American Ethanol was established by Growth Energy in partnership with the National Corn Growers Association to increase the awareness of the reliability, performance capabilities and affordability of American-made ethanol.“NASCAR has driven more than 5.5 million miles on E15 and we hope that fans will make the connection that they can also choose E15 or another flex-fuel ethanol blend, like E85 for their own cars. It’s good for the environment, performs well, and saves money at the pump,” Hasheider added.“The enthusiasm for professional motorsports in the St. Louis region is greater than anyone could have ever imagined,” said Gateway Motorsports Park Owner and President Curtis Francois. “American Ethanol understands the power of this energy to the relevance of this community. We are working hard to build a coalition of support among the civic and business leaders in the region so that when we talk to major sanctioning bodies like NASCAR, we can unequivocally demonstrate that we have complete community support. We are grateful for their partnership.”The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is an intensely competitive series that has grown in popularity. The NASCAR race at Gateway MSP will be the 7th of 22 national truck series races on the calendar for 2014. The NASCAR “lifestyle” has become a national phenomenon over the last 20 years, with at-track attendance for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series averaging 30,000 fans at each event held at nearly 20 tracks across the country. The 10-month season is one of the longest of all major sports events.The NASCAR drivers are some of the most competitive athletes of any sport, and this series is largely popular due to the driver and team personalities that fuel much of the excitement of NASCAR.The American Ethanol “Drivin’ for Linemen 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event will be held under the lights in primetime on Fox Sports 1 at 7:30 p.m. CT at the 1.25-mile NASCAR Speedway over the Father’s Day weekend. The track also will host the United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Series race just prior to NASCAR qualifying. This will be the first NASCAR-sanctioned event at Gateway Motorsports Park under the new ownership of St. Louis native Curtis Francois.For additional information on American Ethanol, visit www.americanethanolracing.com. Source: NCGA Previous articlePioneer Field Agronomy Update 5/20/14Next articleUSDA Announces Expanded Crop Insurance Options Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Farm Bill Voted Down but Not Out

first_img Farm Bill Voted Down but Not Out Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bill Voted Down but Not Out SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 20, 2018 SHARE Farm Bill Voted Down but Not OutIn a surprise move on Friday, the House voted to reject the current version of the Farm Bill. After 3 years in the making and after 3 days on the House floor, the new Farm Bill was expected to pass with solid Republican support and equally as solid Democratic opposition. But that is not the way things went as the bill went down to defeat by a vote of 198-213. A group of 30 GOP lawmakers, known as the Freedom  Caucus, voted against the bill insisting that the House take action immigration reform before they would support the Farm Bill. Last minute efforts by speaker Paul Ryan failed to break the deadlock.  Ryan was able to pass a motion to reconsider, which was then  postponed. This means the bill could come back for a vote at a later date, but it is unclear what the next move on the legislation will be.House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway said the bill is down but not out, “We experienced a setback today after a streak of victories all week. We may be down, but we are not out. We will deliver a strong, new farm bill on time as the President of the United States has called on us to do. Our nation’s farmers and ranchers and rural America deserve nothing less.”Farm groups expressed disappointment, but vowed to fight on:“Plain and simple: the farm bill matters,” said ASA President John Heisdorffer, Iowa farmer.Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said farmers are perplexed and outraged by the House action, “They are facing very real financial challenges. We call on all members of Congress not to use farmers and ranchers as pawns in a political game.”“NCGA urges House Leaders to quickly find a way forward to pass a new farm bill as soon as possible,” added North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes, president of the National Corn Growers Association.Alison Cooke, with the National Cattleman’s Beef Association, said action is needed to deal with important issues facing farmers and ranchers.Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue stated, “A Farm Bill is necessary to provide our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers with the stability and predictability they need. Our farmers feed the people of this nation and the world, and they deserve the certainty of a Farm Bill.”The House Freedom Caucus, which orchestrated the defeat, consists of roughly three-dozen conservatives that have made immigration a signature issue. Democrats in the chamber cheered as the bill failed, as the minority party says it was given no chance to provide input on the bill and objects to changes in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway disagreed, stating on the House floor that Democrats refused to provide input before lawmakers voted down a motion by Democrats to send the bill back to committee. Meanwhile, Ranking Democrat of the House Agriculture Committee, Collin Peterson, says the failure provides “a good opportunity for us to return to the table” and “fix” the bill before moving forward.

Investor Confidence Measured

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Investor confidence is slipping as market conditions remain volatile, according to a new study from Wells Fargo. According to the Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor Optimism Index, U.S. investor optimism fell to its lowest point since the fourth quarter of 2016 as investor confidence weakened in the 12-month outlook for the stock market and U.S. employment.The Q3 2019 Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index is now 72, down 13 points from 85 in the second quarter and well below the post-recession high of 117 reached in the fourth quarter of 2017,  the largest quarterly drop for the index in more than three years.“Even before the volatility of the past two weeks, investors were rattled by the market decline at the start of the month, including a nearly 800-point drop in the Dow at the start of the survey period,” said Andy Byer, head of Client Service and Advice for Wells Fargo Advisors on Business Wire.A major factors influencing investor decision is the U.S.-China trade war. According to a survey from SophisticatedInvestor.com, 45.8% of investors citing it as their top concern. The trade wars are twice as important as the national debt and significantly higher than interest rate cuts from the Fed. Other factors of concern to investors include tensions in the Persian Gulf.Wells Fargo’s index notes that 59% of investors this quarter said this was a good time to invest in the stock market, down from 65% last quarter. However, 76% saying they feel very confident or somewhat confident they will have enough money to maintain the lifestyle they want throughout their retirement.“With the market still up from the start of the year, recent market losses have not cut into investors’ underlying confidence in their portfolio or long-term retirement goals,” Byer said. “Even with volatile markets, investors should keep their focus on their long-term investment plans. And making sure investments are aligned with their personal risk tolerance and rebalancing portfolios to match their investment objectives.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Investment Sales Stocks Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Investor Confidence Measured Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img Previous: State of Emergency Declared for Florida Next: Recession: Is Real Estate Safe?

Black couple turns away repairman carrying large Confederate flag in truck

first_imgCourtesy Brown Family(ATLANTA) — A black couple in Georgia said they were in “disbelief” when a man responding to their Facebook post looking for someone to repair the brakes on a golf cart pulled up in a truck carrying a large Confederate flag.Zeke Brown, who lives with his family in the Atlanta area, told ABC News on Thursday that he’d placed the ad looking for a repairman on Facebook’s local marketplace. When the repairman arrived on June 29, Brown said he didn’t notice the flag at first until his son mentioned it as he was pulling out of the driveway.“My son immediately said that he was gonna leave because he knew nothing good was gonna come of it,” he said.Brown said that he spoke to the young man, whom he described as white and in his early 20s, and had what he called a “very polite conversation,” before he went inside to speak to his wife.“I just couldn’t believe that he had the flag on the truck and was coming to my house that way,” he said. “I was in disbelief.”The Browns’ doorbell camera captured the interaction between the couple and the man identified as Mike as they conversed outside the couple’s home.“Hi. You know what? I do apologize … we’re gonna use someone else,” Allison Brown can be heard on the video saying to the man before he gets into his truck and drives away.“I’m beyond upset with the flag,” she says. “You continue to believe what you need to believe, sir. But, no, I cannot pay you for your services. Thank you. Have a good day.”Allison Brown told ABC News that she’d handled the situation the way she did because she “wanted to set a good example” for her sons.“I didn’t feel it was necessary for me to raise my voice or to cuss or to fuss,” she said Thursday. “There’s enough negative image of black women being angry … I didn’t want to step outside of my character.”Nevertheless, she said she wanted to be clear to the man that the flag was unacceptable on her family’s property and that he was not welcome.“Nor did I need his business if that’s how he wanted to conduct himself,” she said. “Had he not had the flag on his truck and I had not known, I would’ve allowed him to do the work as he needed — and probably would have hired him for other jobs.”The Browns said the man had offered to remove the flag from his truck but they still declined his services. “I felt like at that point, you’ve already made yourself very clear. You already have shown your true colors,” Allison Brown said. “Because he came to our home in that disrespectful, violating manner, I sent him on his way.”The couple told ABC News that they had held onto the video for their own safety, in case they needed to turn it over to police.Zeke Brown said the man had written him on Facebook soon after leaving, saying that he did not mean to offend the couple.Brown said that he’d responded by saying the Confederate flag is disrespectful and encouraging him to research what the flag means to people of color.“The times when that flag was brought up, multiple times during history, it was always to our (African Americans’) detriment … negative to our plight,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Carey Stadium Becomes Mecca for Football Fans, Programs

first_imgPicturesque Carey Stadium hosts an array of athletic events through the year, including youth football camps. By TIM KELLYA modern invention, artificial turf, has given a whole new life to one of South Jersey’s oldest and most unique high school football venues.Carey Stadium, the century-old playground of the Ocean City Red Raiders, is evolving into a kind of summer football wonderland that attracts professional, college and other high school teams, coaches and fans.Located just off the beach and Boardwalk at Sixth Street and adjacent to another wonderland — Wonderland Pier — whose looming Ferris wheel is part of the scenery, Carey is usually buzzing with activities and attractions for locals and visitors alike.This summer alone, Carey hosted a six-team, NFL-sanctioned 7-on-7 competition, Philadelphia Eagles star Vinny Curry’s Youth Football Camp, a Youth Gridiron Academy flag football event for kids as young as 5, and an open practice of the Villanova University Wildcats.Of course, regular informal workouts take place at Carey by organized teams and individual fitness buffs.The marching band, another big part of football Fridays, practices on the field, too.“This place is beautiful,” Haddonfield High School head coach Frank DeLano said in July when he brought his Bulldawgs to Carey to compete against the Red Raiders and teams from Millville, Cedar Creek, Salem and Clearview.“I’m normally not a fan of 7-on-7, but this was a chance for our team to bond,” DeLano said. “(Afterward, the players) will be up on the boards eating pizza. These are the kinds of experiences that make a team.”Carey, of course, is also home to the summer activities of the Red Raiders’ gridders, including the currently ongoing preseason training camp.And that’s just football.During the high school football season, Carey Stadium epitomizes “Friday Night Lights.”Carey also is home to the Ocean City Nor’easters soccer team and its many guest youth soccer programs. It’s a staging area for charity walks and runs, site of city-hosted events and much more.The result is what city officials and the Ocean City Board of Education envisioned when the idea to install fake grass took root in 2014 and blossomed just prior to the 2016 football season.It’s safe to say the investment, reported to be $1.25 million at the time, is already bringing big returns.“I come here to work out all the time,” said Curry, an Eagles defensive end and member of the 2018 Super Bowl champs. “I always see kids out here playing football. This is where I wanted to bring my camp. (His contacts working with the school and city) were very helpful, very cooperative.”“Everyone has been extremely great. My thing is, football is supposed to be fun. Look around,” he said of the huge turnout of players, parents, fans and members of the media. “Looks like a lot of fun going on.”Nobody appreciates Carey, named for legendary Ocean City teacher and coach Fenton Carey, more than the Red Raiders’ current head coach Kevin Smith. At Curry’s camp, where many Raider coaches and players volunteered, he spoke in reverent tones.“You think about the fact that Ocean City has been playing football here for 100 years and its humbling,” he said. “And the setting here is one-of-a-kind. There’s no other place like it.”It’s not all about romance, however. Smith is first and foremost a football coach charged with maintaining the historic program. And with that in mind, Carey Stadium is a good fit for the school and the squad.“The thing I liked most about (the Red Raiders’ training camp) was we saw a lot of improvement from individuals and the team as a whole,” Smith said in an email.“We have a long way to go but we got better every day. That’s a good way to start.”Ocean City Head Coach Kevin Smith (left) with members of his staff at Vinny Curry’s youth football camp.last_img read more
