Lloyds TSB matching scheme opens in Northern Ireland

first_img Charities in Northern Ireland can now apply to Lloyds TSB Foundation in Northern Ireland for matched giving from local HBOS employees.The Matched Giving Scheme was established to encourage members of staff to get involved in the voluntary sector and to help fundraise through personal participation in events or give their time freely to support the work of charities. The Lloyds TSB Foundation runs this scheme for the staff of Lloyds Banking Group, which owns HBOS, and its subsidiary companies as well as our own staff and Trustees.Every member of staff is entitled to claim up to £500 in each calendar year from the Matched Giving Scheme for a charity for which they have either raised money for or given time to. The scheme will match every pound raised or donate £5 per hour of voluntary time given, to a maximum of £500, provided that the claim falls within the rules of the scheme and the charity is eligible for funding.Each year, the Lloyds foundations allocate a percentage of their income towards the Matched Giving Scheme. In 2009, over £1 million was matched to support the charitable activities of Group staff, as well as Foundation staff and Trustees.A wide range of charities are eligible but the work must be within the UK. For fundraising activity claims, you must have personally participated in an event or activity and the claims for fundraising activities must be submitted within 6 months of the date  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding Ireland Lloyds TSB matching scheme opens in Northern Ireland AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 14 October 2010 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

ESRC research says cuts are likely to hit charities harder than expected

first_img The charities that rely most heavily on public funding at present are those working with the most disadvantaged people and in the most deprived areas, according to initial findings of research funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The funding cuts they face could therefore have a disproportionate affect on some.Professor John Mohan of the Third Sector Research Centre, who led the study, reports that around one third of voluntary and charitable organisations in England receive public money to support their work. Of these, over 20,000 organisations say that the public sector is their most important source of income. “It is very clear that public funding is more important to voluntary organisations than previously thought,” said Professor Mohan. “And this is particularly true for those organisations working in deprived areas and with disadvantaged people.”The study found public funding is received by:• almost 70 per cent of third sector organisations working with socially excluded or vulnerable people;• 60 per cent of those working with offenders, victims of crime and people with mental health needs;• over 50 per cent of voluntary organisations whose work includes helping the homeless and asylum seekers.“What is concerning about these figures,” says Professor Mohan, “is how much these organisations rely on public expenditure, and that many of them work in fields that, historically, have attracted little charitable funding.”The study has also found substantial regional variations in the extent to which third sector organisations receive public funding. Just over a third of organisations in London and the south-east receive state funding, compared with 42% of organisations in the North West and 43% of organisations in the North East.In disadvantaged areas of the Midlands and the North (such as in parts of Nottingham and Knowsley) the proportion of organisations that describe the public sector as their most important source of income is around 30%.The study has also found that public funding is unevenly distributed across the sector, with most of it concentrated in a small number of large organisations. Two thirds of organisations with income over £5 million receive public money, whereas organisations whose income is under £10,000 per year are much less likely to draw on public sector funding.“The picture is complex,” admits Professor Mohan. “And there is no straightforward answer as to how public expenditure reductions will affect individual charities or localities”. Nevertheless, the study concludes that policymakers need to take particular care in judging the effects of government cuts over the next few years.The study analysed data from the National Survey of Third Sector Organisations (NSTSO), a representative sample of 48,000 third sector organisations in England, which was carried out in 2008. The findings are presented in a Third Sector Research Centre working paper ‘How dependent is the third sector on public funding?’ paper ESRC research says cuts are likely to hit charities harder than expected Howard Lake | 7 June 2011 | News  113 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding Giving/Philanthropy recession Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

After registering for tickets, students had to pick them up at the Parrish Family Athletics Ticket Office in the Schollmaier Arena between 5 and 7 Monday night. Mark Cohen, Director of Athletics Media Relations, said that 3,200 students requested tickets.The email warned students that, “all tickets will be issued as first-come, first-served” and that, “if there is more demand than availability, reserved seating will be based on priority rank and then lottery if necessary.”With this desire to not only ensure they got a ticket but got a good seat in the stadium, students were ready to camp out with their friends in line for hours. By around 4 p.m., still an hour before the ticket office, the line of students wrapped all the way out past the Brown Lupton University Union on Stadium Dr.Safe to say our @TCU students are excited about Championship Saturday. #BeatOU— Horned Frogs (@TCU_Athletics) November 27, 2017Students in the first wave of getting tickets received them for section 146, however, those later in the line, receiving their tickets closer to 7 p.m., were given tickets in section 442.“I didn’t realize it was going to be as big of a deal as this,” said Lauren Boyle, a junior early childhood education major. “We showed up around 2:45 and there were probably 20 people already here.”Head coach Garry Patterson thanked students for showing support for the Horned Frogs.Thank you to all our TCU students who stood in line to get tickets to the game Saturday! U are the best!— Gary Patterson (@TCUCoachP) November 28, 2017However, the process wasn’t smooth for everyone. The lack of clear barriers to form lines allowed some people at the last minute to cut in front of those who had been waiting for hours, often to the boos of other students.Many students were also frustrated because the email they received told them that friends could not pick up tickets for each other and that everyone had to be present for their ticket, but then some said they saw this happening anyway.  Elizabeth Hanson, a senior speech pathology major, waited four hours to claim her ticket and was frustrated at this lack of order.“I am sad that they let people pick up tickets for friends and that people who stood in line for four hours didn’t get in the 100’s section because of it and there was no order,” Hansen said. “People had like 60 IDs and there were only four ticket windows open.”Hanson said she plans to call the ticket office to formally complain about the way ticket distribution was handled.Cohen said that all of the students who requested a ticket before Monday’s noon deadline received their ticket.The championship game is scheduled for Saturday, December 2, at 11:30 a.m. at AT&T Stadium as TCU once again takes on Oklahoma.

5-year-old boy rescued after falling down storm drain in Indiana

first_imgEvansville Fire Dept.(EVANSVILLE, Ind.) — A 5-year-old boy was rescued without injury after he fell 30 feet down a narrow storm drain in Indiana, according to the fire department.Evansville firefighters responded to find the boy in a 16-inch diameter pipe at about 9 p.m. Thursday, according to the Evansville Fire Department.The pipe was too narrow for firefighters to rescue the boy themselves, so after several tries with different ideas, the creative first responders decided “to lower a swing set seat down to him,” the fire department said in a statement Friday.“The boy was instructed to sit in the seat like he was riding a horse so they could pull him up while the sides of the pipe kept him from falling off,” the fire department said.The 5-year-old was rescued at about 10:30 p.m., fire officials said.He had no apparent injuries besides possible scrapes and bruises, officials said.The boy was conscious and alert the whole time, fire officials said, adding that air was pumped into the hole throughout the ordeal.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
