Trinity produces major Irish fundraising study

first_imgTrinity produces major Irish fundraising study For national and international charities, public collections, corporate donations and standing order/direct debit were the most common source of fundraising income. Web based appeals, legacies and major gifts were relatively less important.Regional organisations had more dependence on flag days, church gate collections, draws and local sponsorship. Cost (both in terms of time and money), return on investment and public relations were the decisive factors for the majority of charities and balls and treks were losing their appeal as fundraising methods.The report can be downloaded from the Trinity department’s website.  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Ireland AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The most comprehensive study ever of fundraising organisations in Ireland has been published by the Centre for Nonprofit Management at Trinity College Dublin. ‘Exploring the Irish Fundraising Landscape: A Report on the practice and scale of charitable fundraising from the public in Ireland,’ was commissioned by Irish Charities Tax Research Limited who were in turn supported in the work by the government. The report was conducted using a quantitative survey which was responded to by 960 fundraising organisations and by focus groups. The 52-page report found that there was increasing competition in fundraising, increasing costs and expectations, and a higher level of accountability being demanded by donors.Despite higher levels of fundraising most organisations were found to have a big reliance on state funding. Of the organisations surveyed fundraising income represented on average 23% of total income and, while the average raised was ‚€201,000, only 10% raised more than that figure, indicating a large number raising much more modest sums.

He was on remand at the prison on charges of setting fire to his home while his mother and girlfriend were inside the building.He was one of four Limerick teenagers who gang-raped the woman in a car park at Cratloe Woods and had served five years of a nine year prison sentence after he was convicted at the Central Criminal Court in January 2004.The court was told that the woman was dragged into the car and the gang took turns raping her while they threatened to burn the car with her boyfriend inside if she resisted.After his release, Dean Barry was before the courts on a number of occasions.At Limerick Coroners Court on Wednesday, Coroner Anthony Casey was told that on January 21, 2012, Dean’s brother Mark and another inmate opted to leave their cell on the top floor of Limerick Prison for exercise in the yard after their 23 hour lockdown.However, Dean told officers that he wanted to stay in the cell to play his PlayStation.

These, he claimed, were what his brother was able to hang himself from.After thanking the officers at Limerick Prison and the medical staff who tried to revive her son, Valerie Barry questioned why he was not on suicide watch.“Although he was in a cell with his brother, he should have been on suicide watch – his head wasn’t right over his past. He did a long time in prison,” she added.The inquest heard that Dean Barry had been attending a psychiatrist and had a consultation before his death but no details of this visit were given to the inquest.Prison staff confirmed he was not on suicide watch.The jury returned an open verdict in accordance with medical evidence.

Dennerby Promises to Take Nigeria’s Best Legs to World Cup in…

first_imgSuper Falcons’s Head Coach Thomas Dennerby has said that the team will go to this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in France with the best legs available.Speaking to thenff.com on the necessity of the recent domestic camp, the coach who is delighted with the maximum support of the Nigeria Football Federation for his entire programme ahead of the World Cup, insisted that in order to select the best players, there is need to give as many good players as possible the opportunity to show what they can do.“We have different targets, of course. The first target is to find really good players that will be in the first list that we will send to FIFA. We have to be very sure we have the right players. It’s very important that you are one hundred per cent sure that you have picked the ones that you really want. Also, we have a camp in Spain at the beginning of April where we will play the Canada Women National team and it is very important that some of the players in this camp come to Spain.” Dennerby, who led the domestic players to third place finish in the maiden edition of the WAFU Cup Tournament in 2018, noted that some of the players will leave the team eventually and the domestic camp offers opportunity to know who has the ability.“Soon, we probably need to change some of the players in the National Team and when the time comes we have to know who is best suitable. There is a lot of good reason for having the domestic camp.”The Nigeria Football Federation has availed the Super Falcons with the opportunity of playing six games so far this year in preparation for the FIFA World Cup in France.Speaking on the team’s preparation so far, Dennerby insisted the team has been getting better with every game, expressing hope that they will have a good performance at the World Cup.“If you look at the first game we played this year in China against the Chinese Women National team, we had a good first half but the players became tired in the second half and I know the reason for that. However, having observed that Romanian defenders were slow from their first game, we tried to supply our attackers faster in the second game and won 4-1.“Coming to Cyprus, with the good quality of the opponents we showed some improvement from the first tournament. We were unlucky in the first game against Austria with a player (goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi) picking a red card in the 6th minute. We played with only ten players for 84 minutes but we really did well in the game. The girls showed a lot of good attitude. But the good thing is that we got two wins in Cyprus and the girls showed strong attitude, they were quick, nice running, hardworking, good decision –making and all these are necessary to boost their confidence.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Thomas Dennerbylast_img read more
