The receipt can be tracked back to the charity’s database. Advertisement eTapestry provides electronic receipting through Canadian-based Sentient Canadian law requires that charities provide serialised receipts with a government-issued charity business number to donors. Charities also must have the ability to track that information back to the donation. American regulators have discussed the possibility of establishing similar laws inthe United States.“This new process will help our Canadian customers tremendously,” said Steve Rusche, founder and chief operating officer of eTapestry. “It also will make it easier for all of our customers to deal with the time-consuming practice of issuing donor receipts. And, if laws similar to Canada’s are imposed in the United States and elsewhere, all of ourcustomers will be ready to comply.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Already John Lewis, Barclays, Waitrose and KPMG have announced that they will be promoting the service to their employees.Barclays is Britain’s biggest corporate online fundraiser, according to JustGiving, with employees raising over £2 million on JustGiving over the past three years for partner charities including Have a Heart and UNICEF.Employees have of course already been using JustGiving in a personal capacity to support their company’s charity of the year and other causes, raising over £73 million via the site in the past three years. The financial services industry leads the way, with 20 of the top 50 employee fundraising efforts coming from the sector, raising a total of £5 million between them.JustGiving’s Company Fundraising tools will enable UK businesses to showcase their employees’ achievements, and match their donations with company funds if they choose. Companies also have the option of covering JustGiving’s fees, to make the service entirely free for charities.The new tools offer:· branded company fundraising pages to showcase all a business’ employee fundraising activity in one place· running totals of all donations raised by employees· the facility for employees to form teams to compete against each other and link their JustGiving individual fundraising pages to their company page· leader boards featuring the most successful fundraising staff to encourage competition and reward success· the option for companies to match-fund the sums raised by their employees and to display this total publicly on their company profile· measurement and reporting of fundraising dataAnne-Marie Huby, MD at JustGiving, said: “Employees raise millions of pounds for charity every year but much of this effort takes place offline and gets little recognition. Our belief is that by making staff feel supported and part of a community that is striving for a greater good, we can steer businesses towards closer partnerships with charities and raise even more money for good causes.“We are encouraged by many companies’ willingness to pay for the costs of the service, to ensure that charities get maximum benefit.”www.justgiving.com/companies AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 11 October 2011 | News Tagged with: corporate Digital Events Justgiving JustGiving extends online fundraising to companies and employeeslast_img read more

Crowdfunding for medical & health reasons almost doubles on GoFundMe

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 Crowdfunding for medical & health reasons almost doubles on GoFundMe Tagged with: crowdfunding GoFundMe Research / statistics Crowdfunding is increasingly being used to raise funds for personal medical costs and health expenses, according to figures from GoFundMe.Over £15.5 million has been raised in GoFundMe’s ‘Medical, Illness & Healing’ category in the UK since 2010, across nearly 5,000 individual campaigns and from more than 480,000 donors. It has become the largest category on the platform in the past year with a 47% increase between 2015 and 2016 (YTD).The biggest health-related campaign to date has been the GoFundMe ‘Donate4Mike’ campaign (pictured), which in 2014 raised a six-figure sum in days to get Mike Brandon to the US to participate in a clinical trial after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It became the largest GoFundMe campaign ever at the time, and was only overtaken this year by Jo Cox’s Fund.The second biggest health campaign since the site began was for Stephanie Inglis, (Scotland’s Commonwealth silver medallist in Judo) who was involved in a motorcycle accident whilst teaching abroad in Vietnam. Her family and friends raised over £327,000 for her medical bills and Stephanie is now recovering back in Scotland.The average total amount raised by a typical medical campaign in the UK at this time (Nov 2016) is £3,100, while the average donation to a campaign is now £41.While the majority of campaigns are by members of the public for family and friends, recent high profile campaigns have included an appeal for paralysed jockey Freddy Tylicki, which raised £270,000 in five days, a campaign to raise funds for cancer treatment for former Emmerdale actress Leah Bracknell, which has beaten its £50,000 target in a month, and the recent campaign for Lucy-Mae Beacock, star of Matilda the Musical, who needs corrective spine surgery in the USA.

This is an especially powerful tool in times of medical emergency.”  183 total views,  1 views today  184 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 Melanie May | 1 December 2016 | Newslast_img read more

Haitians demand relief 5 years after quake

first_imgFive years ago, after a catastrophic earthquake killed hundreds of thousands of Haitians and destroyed much of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, the people of the world were so struck by the devastation and suffering that they donated billions of dollars to Haiti’s relief. A majority of those who donated lived in the U.S.But the “international community” felt that Haiti’s government couldn’t handle so much money, so they appointed former U.S. President Bill Clinton as head of the Interim Haiti Reconstruction Fund and guaranteed that he would have complete control.Now $6 billion of these contributions have yet to be dispersed. At a demonstration in New York on Jan. 13, called by the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti (Komokoda), Haitians asked, “Where’s the money, Bill?” They also pointed out that then U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton installed Michel “Sweet Mickey” Martelly as president of Haiti to cover up this plunder.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Vilsack Rumored as Top Choice for Second Round as Ag Secretary

first_img Previous articleHelp With 2020 Farm TaxesNext articleNational Farm Machinery Show Moves Dates NAFB News Service Vilsack Rumored as Top Choice for Second Round as Ag Secretary SHARE Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Dec 8, 2020 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Vilsack Rumored as Top Choice for Second Round as Ag Secretary Politico is reporting that Tom Vilsack may be Joe Biden’s number one choice for Secretary of Agriculture. However, the article also says the final decision isn’t made yet.The Hagstrom report quotes a source with ties to Vilsack, saying, “I think this is still very much in flux.”Vilsack was the ag secretary for eight years when Barack Obama held the Oval Office and Biden was his vice president. Vilsack is the current CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council.His tenure as ag secretary was during a period of record farm income and record export numbers. His Deputy Secretary, Kathleen Merrigan, spearheaded the Know Your Farm, Know Your Food Initiative. Vilsack’s USDA helped with the passage of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which resulted in rules requiring higher quality meals at U.S. schools. Vilsack also encouraged farm groups to come together on an agreement on the labeling of foods that contained genetically modified ingredients.Progressives oppose Vilsack getting another chance at the job, saying he’s “too close to agribusiness.” More mainstream farm groups have mostly stayed out of the debate over Biden’s choice for ag secretary, but many in the past praised Vilsack’s work.

Is Housing the Economy’s Saving Grace?

Dietz, though, added builders “continue to remain cautious” due to ongoing supply considerations and concerns over an economic slowdown.”With homebuilder sentiment so strong, it’s hard to imagine that the economy is on the cusp of a downturn,” said analysts at Bespoke Investment Group in the CNN report. CNN added that “there seems to be no end in sight” to the housing boom in many parts of the U.S. Additionally, CNN says that historically-low mortgage rates is a key factor in housing growth in 2019.”There is no better sentiment than people willing to make 30-year commitments for a home,” said JJ Kinahan, Chief Market Strategist with TD Ameritrade, in the piece. “When people have jobs, they are willing to spend money. The solid housing market is the side effect of a great job market.”In its latest release, however, Freddie Mac stated that the average rate of a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose to its highest level in 12 weeks to 3.75%. In an effort to stimulate the economy, the Fed cut interest rates twice in 2019, with the most recent decrease coming in September. The Fed lowered its overnight lending rate to a target rate of 1.75% to 2%. Despite the rate cut, which had been anticipated since the rate cut earlier this year, Reuters reports that seven of 17 policymakers projected one more quarter-point rate cut in 2019, signaling divisions in the Fed.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum gave the direction after it was informed that the Government of Telangana has released certain funds to help the junior members of the Bar who are in distress and even the advocates’ clerks, who are in distress. On the last hearing the court had asked the association to implead the Advocates Association of Bengaluru and Karnataka State Bar Council. It had asked them to evolve a scheme for the benefit of the registered advocates clerks. The court was informed by the counsel appearing for the Karnataka State Bar Council and counsel appearing for the Advocates’ Association of Bengaluru, that a joint meeting was convened on May 26, to discuss the issue. However, nothing concrete was placed on record by both the entities to show that through the senior members of the Bar in the city, any fund is created to help the clerks who are in distress. The bench said “We are sure that if the Karnataka State Bar Council and Advocates’ Association Bengaluru make a request to the senior members of the Bar by inviting their attention to the plight of some of the advocates’ clerks, contributions will come from senior advocates. The only question is of making an effort in the right direction.” The court has once again asked the Advocates’ Association and the Bar Council to respond in a constructive manner. It suggested that “While handing over the funds to the petitioner-Association, the members of the Bar can always impose conditions about the manner in which it should be used with a view to ensure that the clerks who are really in distress get the monetary benefit.” The court will hear the matter on June 2.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]  Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
