Gift Aid on donated items raised £4.5m for Sue Ryder in 2014 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 28 April 2015 | News 53 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. 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. Sue Ryder’s early use of extending Gift Aid to the value of donated clothing and household items generated £4.5 million for the charity in 2014, a record to date, and a 20% increase on the previous year’s record amount.This now brings the total additional income generated through its retail Gift Aid scheme to £16.5 million.Launched in 2006The scheme, which has over 900,000 registered Gift Aid donors, was launched at Sue Ryder in 2006. Since then the scheme has been adopted by many other charities in the UK that have trading operations, and has helped them generate millions of pounds of income.Until Sue Ryder staff and their technology partner Eproductive worked out a way to apply Gift Aid to donated goods ie. non-monetary gifts, and one that met with HMRC approval, Gift Aid was restricted to financial donations.Eproductive spotted an opportunity to create an easily traceable audit trail and created the EpR Gift Aid system, which was trialled through Sue Ryder shops.How it worksIf someone wants to become a Gift Aid donor, the donor has to be a UK tax payer, and the donated items have to belong to the donor. The donor has to complete a donor declaration form for the charity to claim the Gift Aid. For example a dress donated to Sue Ryder is sold for £5 and then the charity claims back a further £1.25, making the total donation to the charity £6.25.Keren Caird, Retail Business Development Gift Aid Manager at Sue Ryder said: Advertisement Tagged with: Gift Aid HMRC Trading “Recently we updated the scheme to email donors to notify them of the sales value of their items. This has been really warmly received and gives us an additional saving in postage and printing costs, which means more money can go directly to supplying our incredible hospice and neurological care.”
Student protests against racism and other bigotries are being lambasted across the U.S. as an assault on “free speech.” Seeing marches led by young women of color, white male students have shouted, “I’m for freedom of speech!” On one campus, opponents of this new movement put up signs “In memoriam of the true victim of the Missouri Protests: Free Speech” along with “All Lives Matter” posters.Those signs reveal the foundation of “free speech” criticism: racism. It’s a tool the capitalist ruling class uses as it propagandizes, organizes and legislates to keep all oppressed people — and emphatically people of color — silent and powerless.The recent wave of protests at U.S. colleges and universities is not a struggle over “speech.” It is a struggle by students seeking to liberate their own educational process — including from devastating student loan debt that generates huge profits for lending agencies.This is a struggle to create school environments where young people of color, women, people with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer people can learn without being terrorized, threatened and slandered by administrators, faculty, campus police and other students. (Trans* is currently used with an asterisk to indicate the spectrum of different sexes and genders of people who do not conform to the either/or of male/female or masculine/feminine.)Women are technically “protected” by U.S. law from job environments where co-workers hang crudely sexist posters or use foul anti-woman language. But students are reporting daily at their schools the most vile, racist, sexist and anti-LGBT*Q language, including death threats. Plus they are targeted and sometimes beaten by campus cops.The struggle over who gets to speak and what they say is not an abstract discussion. The struggle is not about how students learn “to tolerate opposing points of view.”The student protests are a struggle about who gets to live and how.In the U.S. where corporations are legally considered “people” and spend billions to make sure their “free speech” is broadcast in every venue — from major media to the White House — oppressed people have to struggle every day not just to be heard, but to survive racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-disabled attacks.Oppressed students struggle to find a way into a future where they are not merely human robots in corporate assembly lines. They are speaking out and fighting for a better world. This world cannot be built using narrow legalities put in place by a bourgeois democratic revolution in the 1700s that framed “rights” as possessed only by white, propertied men. That way includes even now the notion of who can speak and who is considered “truthful.” The students’ speech, their truth, can be heard as one more break in the old oppressive system. And their struggle also points toward socialist revolution.Because when workers and oppressed people speak our truths, we are communicating to each other the information we need to organize and liberate ourselves.Listen to the students. Fight for their right to speak and organize!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago In light of the indomitable presence of COVID 19, many zombie foreclosures have spiked across the U.S. with Americans battling to keep up with their mortgage payments, according to ATTOM’s most recent vacant and zombies foreclosure report.The report poses the question: Are Americans in store for a “zombie apocalypse,” which not only would hit financial institutions in their pocket, but also would jeopardize neighborhoods?Not only have record job losses culminated from the pandemic, predictions that the economic impact will extend beyond the next several months are rampant. Just consider this: In the first four weeks alone following the White Houses’ declaration of a national emergency, more than 22 million Americans had lost their jobs. As time goes by, commentators are warning of an impending economic downturn as hard hitting and disruptive on par with The Great Depression.According to ATTOM’s third-quarter 2020 Vacant Property and Zombie Foreclosure Report, more than 1.5 million residential properties or 1.6% in the U.S. are vacant.What’s more, 216,000 homes that are undergoing foreclosure, 7,961 (3.7%), dwell vacant as zombie foreclosures. That means that this quarter, zombie foreclosures have parachuted.Given the total cost of upkeep becomes their responsibility, such foreclosures are a costly proposition for banks. Undesirable neighborhoods with low property values tend to be common targets for zombie foreclosures.Banks will derive a big boost toward circumventing costly losses a hit to their reputation by keeping a close eye in the rise in zombie foreclosures. To help more effectively mitigate risk, tapping real estate data can be a productive tool.A report indicated that 1.6% of all homes in the U.S. are vacant, numbering 1,570,265 residential properties, with 7,960 or 3.7% of those vacant properties in the process of foreclosure, otherwise known as “zombie foreclosures.”That’s according to ATTOM Data Solutions’ Q3 2020 Vacant Property and Zombie Foreclosure Report.The Company’s vacant properties analysis showed that while the number of properties in the process of foreclosure (215,886) in Q3 2020 is down 16% from Q2 2020 (258,024), the percentage of those properties that have been abandoned as zombie foreclosures is up from 3% in Q2 2020.The report suggested that despite the increase, “as the federal government attempts to shield the housing market from an economic slide stemming from the Coronavirus pandemic, the 7,961 zombie foreclosure properties continue to represent a very small portion–just one in every 12,500 homes–of the nation’s 99.4 million residential properties.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe
