  • Charity sector’s income has “flat-lined since 2009”

    first_imgCharity sector’s income has “flat-lined since 2009” Howard Lake | 23 July 2015 | News  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Inflation has also hit charities. While its rate might now be at historic lows,“Between 2007 and 2014, the average non-domestic electricity bill increased by 24% in real terms. Over the same period, the cost of a second class stamp, commonly used by charities to communicate with beneficiaries and supporters, increased from 24p to 53p, the price of unleaded petrol rose by 45%, and the cost of stationery and other printed materials rose by 26%”.The report suggests that:“In order to retain the same level of spending power, the voluntary sector would need to generate £3.14bn in income or savings to make up for the eroding effects of inflation”.That is a substantial challenge.Peter Lewis, chief executive of the Institute of Fundraising, said: “As this Review illustrates, whilst many charities who are able to invest in fundraising are continuing to grow their support from the very generous British public, smaller charities are benefiting the least from the economic recovery. With government grants at an all time low now is the time for Government to work with charities to help them diversify their income streams and find more innovative ways to raise money for the good causes they support, both in the UK and overseas.”Of course, demand for many charities’ services continues to grow, while their income falls or stagnates. Given the additional cuts in government funding earmarked over the period of this government, and possibly into the next, this situation is not likely to ease for several years.Charities advised to make further cutsThe report’s conclusions includes the recommendation that “voluntary organisations will need to make over £3bn in efficiency savings in order to maintain their spending power. Voluntary organisations need to begin working now to identify areas where savings can be made and design strategies for achieving them.”It adds the practical reminder that “voluntary organisations are also advised to make explicit the impact of inflation when bidding for contracts and grants”.NCVO offers 10 steps to move towards more sustainable financing. These include:• don’t put all your eggs in one basket• factor in inflation• map your assets and liabilities• map your organisation’s capabilities and capacitiesThe research was conducted over the past 12 months. It is based on data from the NCVO Almanac together with sector surveys, research reports and input from staff and organisations in the sector.It was conducted in partnership with Charity Finance Group, Small Charities Coalition, NAVCA, Institute of Fundraising and Locality.You can download A financial sustainability review of the voluntary sector from NCVO in PDF.

Tagged with: NCVO recession Research / statistics small charities Joint research by six charity sector membership bodies has found that the charity sector’s income has not risen since 2009, and the sector is not enjoying the recent growth in the economy experienced by some other sectors.The charity sector has lost around £1.7 billion from cuts in government expenditure since 2009/10. From its peak of 2007/08 government expenditure with charities has dropped by £2 billion. When added to reductions in grant income, ‘tepid’ growth in public donations and inflation, charities will, on current projections, face a shortfall of £4.6 billion in income by 2018/19.According to the NCVO Voluntary Sector Almanac, “overall voluntary sector income has fallen from £42.1bn in 2007/08 to £40.7bn in 2013/14. This leaves the sector’s income at the same level as it was in 2009, following the financial crisis, or in 2006, eight years previously.”Small charities hit hardestThe report, ‘A financial sustainability review of the voluntary sector’, reveals that small and medium-sized charities have been hardest hit. Charities with incomes of between £100,000 and £1 million have seen the largest falls in their income and assets: together they have experienced a 38% reduction in income from government sources between 2007/08 and 2013/13. The largest increase in charity income is from charging individuals for services.Increases in individual giving will not offset the amount being lost in government funding and contracts.The rise in individual giving will not make up for the drop in government funding and income.Corporate giving will not be the solution either. The report confirms that“The private sector has not accounted for a significant part of the voluntary sector’s income over any period for which reliable data is currently available. In 2003/04, the private sector contributed a little over 2% of total voluntary sector income. In 2012/13, although income from the private sector had risen in absolute terms, it accounted for only 4.11% to the total voluntary sector’s income”. Advertisement Where charities have increased their income from individuals, this has been earned income rather than donated. Charities have worked to commercialise their services. Not all charities are in a position to do that.Nevertheless, income from individuals is “unlikely to compensate for the falls in income from government sources”.

  • Stop and listen before planning this year

    first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Paul Robert Paul Robert has been helping financial institutions drive their retail growth strategies for over 20 years. Paul is the Chief Executive Officer for FI Strategies, LLC, a private consulting company … Web: fi-strategies.com Details For many of you, it’s strategic planning season – that time of year where you venture off to some exotic resort (or the local Hampton Inn) with the Board on a Saturday and chart the future of the credit union. Next, many of you, unfortunately, will transition into what some call “amnesia season” where we gradually forget everything we defined in strategic planning and slip back into day-to-day survival mode. It’s definitely not intentional but it certainly does happen to the best of us.Not only does your strategic success suffer but, most importantly, so does the success of your members and employees. One vital step you can take to help guard against this loss of focus is to base your tactical plans squarely on the current near-term needs of those employees and members. And a great way to crystalize this focus is through a culture assessment. In short, clearly identifying what’s working and not working in your regular member interactions. Identify what you need to do more frequently and better to make members and staff as happy as possible in the foreseeable future.“When you ask employees for their opinion, they’re usually very forthcoming with their thoughts, pain points, observations and ideas,” says Jayne Hitman, National Relationship Manager at CUNA’s Creating member Loyalty. “Gathering the voice of your employees can become the catalyst for higher retention, increased efficiencies, improved morale, greater employee loyalty, and increased member service.”When completing this assessment of your culture, focus primarily on three critical aspects:Member Perspective – even if you have a current VOM (Voice of the Member) in place, make sure to incorporate more of their “voices” into this assessment. Ask your employees what they hear from members. We all know that many members are not shy about expressing what they don’t like about their experiences with your credit union. Well, let’s make sure we capture those perspectives from the employees. After all, they’re the ones who have to endure the brunt of that feedback on a regular basis. But, don’t just be negative – capture the positive things staff hears from members, as well.Ease-of-Use – ask employees about their frustrations with their day-to-day performance. What’s keeping them from being optimally successful? What would they like to do more of? If they could change one thing, what would it be? Some of this will derive from the previous aspect – the member perspective – but others will come straight from the employees’ frustrations about your inefficient processes and operations. If a Loan Officer is frustrated with all the manual paperwork in your process, there’s a good chance your member is frustrated, too. If a Universal Teller is frustrated by how long a simple transaction takes, your member is probably equally frustrated. Etc.Employee Engagement – maintain your finger on the pulse of your employees, especially your member-facing ones. We all know how damaging turnover is to our credit union’s performance and that members don’t like talking to strange faces every time they come in or call. This assessment is an opportunity to catch those issues that become “dis-engagers” – the seemingly small things that’ll eventually lead employees to leave. Ask them about issues like teamwork, autonomy, recognition, coaching, and development … issues that are fundamental contributors to a highly engaged workforce. Learn how well you’re doing now so you can make modifications before it’s too late.“It’s amazing how when you have an honest conversation, really listen and encourage dialogue how much your employees will open up and share from their heart,” says Hitman. “If you’re not gathering the voice of your employees you run the risk of wasting time, efforts, and resources on those strategic and tactical plans.” Your culture assessment should consist of multiple components, including anonymous surveys and focus groups, and you should attempt to hear from every employee. When analyzing the results of your assessment, look for significant gaps in some very decisive areas of your organization:Front line to back officeOne branch to the nextContact Center to the branchesTop performers to low performersManagers to their direct reportsExecutives to everyone elseMembers to executivesStratifying the assessment is these ways will allow you to truly see the hottest of the hot-button issues and prioritize your tactical plans so you focus first on the issues that will drive the most positive and significant results. So, before investing heavily in any new technology or training initiative or culture transformation, capture the perspective of your employees and members. The assessment will take a little time to do (and, of course, there’s a right way and wrong way to do it) but it’ll be time well-spent because of the rich and actionable data that’ll be produced. Further, you’ll be showing your employees and, ultimately, members that you care about their perspective and success.If you need help or advice on how to complete this critical assessment process, let’s talk. My firm has worked with credit unions of every shape and size and conducted hundreds of these assessments. We’d be happy to get you on the right track with yours.

  • Indian women keep tricolour flying in world chess

    first_imgChennai: Indian female chess players are keeping the nation’s flag flying high by figuring in the top ten in the world in two categories while the men are sliding down. As per the latest global rating list by FIDE-the global chess body, World Rapid Champion Koneru Humphy and Harika Dronavalli are ranked as world number three and nine respectively in the women’s section. In the girls section R. Vaishali is world number 10. Incidentally, no Indian male figures in the top ten in the world’s open section. Former World Champion V. Anand is ranked at 15 in the world, followed by Vidit Santosh Gujarati at 26th rank. Gujarati is now the second top most ranked player in India overtaking P.

  • Sanchez admits to ‘rough’ start at United

    first_imgSantiago, Chile | AFP | Alexis Sanchez confessed on Wednesday to having had a “rough” start at Manchester United where he’s scored only once in 10 matches since his lucrative move from Arsenal in January.The diminutive Chilean forward has been in the eye of the storm with a string of below-par performances as United struggled in the Premier League and limped out of the Champions League at the hands of Sevilla this month.“It was a bit rough for me because it’s the first time I’ve changed a team in January,” Sanchez told reporters in Stockholm where Chile are preparing to face Sweden on Saturday.He said he had “expected something better” from himself during his first months under Jose Mourhino.“It’s been very difficult, we were out of the World Cup, I arrived at my club which was at the time Arsenal, I got injured,” reflected the 29-year-old, who at the start of the season was close to joining Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. “At one stage the transfer broke down, I didn’t go to the other team and at the end I’m in at a team that is United, one of the biggest in the world.”Away from United, Sanchez hopes to get back to winning ways with Chile in what will be Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda’s first game in charge.The team has been hit by internal squabbling in the wake of their elimination from the World Cup, and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo’s refusal to go on the European tour.Sanchez said the team was “a family” and that Bravo was “keeping the door open” to a return to the national team.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

  • Nematode resistance in soybeans beneficial even at low rates of infestation

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Each spring, tiny roundworms hatch and wriggle over to the nearest soybean root to feed. Before farmers are even aware of the belowground infestation, the soybean cyst nematode silently begins to wreak havoc on soybean yield.Fortunately, breeders have identified soybean varieties with genetic resistance to the nematodes and have used them to create new resistant varieties. As you might expect, resistant varieties yield more than susceptible ones when SCN is in the soil. But, until now, it wasn’t clear whether that yield advantage held up at low SCN infestation rates.“The University of Illinois has been organizing a regional testing program of university-developed experimental soybean lines through funding from the United Soybean Board. In the last decade, we have collected data on agronomic performance, including yield, but also data on the resistance of the lines as well as on SCN pressure in the field. We’ve built up a massive dataset from these tests,” said Brian Diers, University of Illinois soybean breeder.By looking at 11 years of data from 408 sites around the Midwest, the researchers found that there was a yield advantage for SCN resistance even at low infestation levels — as low as 20 eggs per 100 cubic centimeters of soil. In environments with no SCN infestation, the team saw evidence of yield drag, where resistant varieties yielded slightly less than susceptible ones.“But most fields in the Midwest do have at least some infestation,” Diers said. “So, in most cases, there’s little justification in planting susceptible varieties to avoid that potential yield drag.”The most common source of SCN resistance is from a soybean accession known as PI 88788. It is well known that SCN is increasing in its ability to overcome 88788-resistance throughout the Midwest. The researchers wanted to find out if varieties with 88788-resistance are still able to produce high yields despite mounting pressure from nematodes.Using the same large dataset, the researchers found that those varieties still provide at least enough moderate resistance to produce good yields.“For me, it’s a message to the soybean community that the sky hasn’t fallen, that 88788-resistance is, on average, working well in most fields,” Diers said.Diers cautions that other sources of resistance, such as Peking or 437654, are better choices in fields where SCN is able to overcome 88788-resistance at a high level. However, he also notes that those varieties are harder to find.“Farmers should rotate soybeans with a non-host crop such as corn, and also, if possible, with soybean varieties that have SCN resistance from alternative sources,” Diers said.The article, “Impact of soybean cyst nematode resistance on soybean yield,” is published in Crop Science. The research was supported by the United Soybean Board.last_img read more

  • Punjab CM slams Canada for supporting Khalistani movement

    first_imgPunjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday accused the Canadian government of overt and covert support to the Khalistani movement, citing a 2018 public report released by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and expressed concern over the fact that anti-India threat-related activities had been on the rise within Canada. In a statement released in Chandigarh, Capt. Amarinder said the CSIS report pointed out the anti-India activities constituted a threat not only to India but also to Canada too. He said support to any kind of violence or terrorism would eventually be devastating for the global community, including nations blatantly backing them.Capt. Amarinder urged the BJP-led government at the Centre to take serious cognizance of these reports and disclosures to mount global pressure on Canada to put an end to the use of its soil to unleash terror against India, particularly the Sikh community being targeted by the Khalistani terrorists. “India had, for too long, been soft towards Canada and needed to crack its whip aggressively, even seek UN sanctions if needed, to end the growing threat once and for all.” The CM also expressed concern over the manipulation and disinformation being spread on social media to influence the young and vulnerable sections of the Sikh community against India. “The Indian government should take urgent and strong steps to control and counter such misuse of the social media,” he said. Capt. Amarinder also cited the findings of the John Major Commission into the 1985 Kanishka bombing, released a few years ago, as a clear endorsement of Canada’s failure to act against the Khalistanis operating from its soil.last_img read more
