Digest of Budget announcements affecting fundraising

first_imgDigest of Budget announcements affecting fundraising Small charities and Gift Aid (s2.92)The government says it will encourage more donors to use Gift Aid on eligible donations and encourage smaller charities to register for the reliefs they are entitled to. The Budget document says this will include “targeted outreach work” and a “simpler” joint HMRC/Charity Commission application process. It also says it wants to “improve understanding of donor behavior”.Sector responsesInstitute of Fundraising: “The introduction of targeted outreach work could help to get more charities involved in using Gift Aid and we look forward to working with the government on this to ensure that it can be as effective as possible.”NCVO: “We’ve been concerned that the Gift Aid Small Donations scheme is too complex for many of those it’s targeted at to be able to claim. We called on the government to do more to support smaller charities so we’re pleased to see the announcement of an outreach team to help smaller charities get the tax reliefs they’re entitled to.”Further informationGift Aid Small Donations Scheme (HMRC).

Tagged with: Finance Gift Aid Libor Benefits received by charity donors (s2.96)Perhaps the most significant new measure is the announcement that the government will conduct a review of the benefits allowed to donors – any item or service a donor receives in connection with a donation, such as entry to an event or magazine subscription – “with a view to simplifying existing rules”HMRC rules on donor benefits present two methods of assessing the value of the benefit that a donor (or a person connected with the donor) may receive in return for making a donation.Under the relevant value test, benefits are limited to:25 per cent of the donations up to £100£25 for donations from £101 to £1,0005 per cent of donations above £1,001 up to a maximum of £2,500.If they pass the relevant value test, benefits are then assessed against the aggregate value test – benefits received by a single donor in a financial year must not exceed £2,500.

Grants for air ambulance and inland safety boat charities (s2.95) More of the £100 million ring-fenced for charities from the Libor fines fund – as announced in the Autumn Statement – was announced in the Budget, extending it from military charities to emergency services charities.Air ambulance charities will have access to a new five-year grant of £65,000 a year to cover the cost of VAT on fuel. This follows a review by the Treasury on the VAT that air ambulance charities incur on fuel.Inland safety boat charities will also have access to a further five-year fund of £1 million per year to cover their fuel costs.Osborne also announced in his Budget speech that, because the Libor fines fund “continue[s] to grow” that he was also making available £10 million for scouts, guides, and cadets, delivered through the Youth United Network, and St John’s Ambulance.Last year, more than 150,000 people signed a government e-petition to refund VAT on fuel for air ambulances. Community Amateur Sports Clubs (s2.97)As announced at Autumn Statement, the government will legislate (Finance Bill 2014) to allow tax relief on gifts of cash from companies to Community Amateur Sports Clubs.

In return, donors receive a tax reduction based on a set percentage of the value of the object they are donating.The Budget announced that the combined annual limit for the Cultural Gifts Scheme and Inheritance Tax Acceptance in Lieu scheme will be increased from £30 million to £40 million a year from 2014-15 (s2.93).The Budget also confirmed the announcement made in the Autumn Statement, that there will be legislation – through the Finance Bill (2014) ­– to amend the Cultural Gifts Scheme in relation to Estate Duty (s2.94). The legislation will ensure that people who donate objects, on which there is potentially a charge to the Estate Duty, are not financially better off by donating the object under the CGS, than selling the object on the open market.Further informationDCMS guidance on the Cultural Gifts Scheme. Gift Aid on digital donations (s2.91)The government has previously announced in the autumn statement that it would improve Gift Aid in the context of digital giving by allowing non-charity intermediaries to play a role in collecting Gift Aid and managing the declarations on behalf of charities.The government has now confirmed it will legislate for this through the Finance Bill 2015.Sector responsesInstitute of Fundraising: “There is potential that this could create an easier and more efficient system for people who donate online or via their phones. However, the devil will be in the detail and it’s important that the right framework is put in place so that this works best for charities and donors.”Charities Aid Foundation: “We are pleased the Government is committed to promoting and modernising Gift Aid, but we urgently need to see the detail. Changes must be far-sighted and ambitious, so that Gift Aid is truly fit for the digital age and charities can benefit from this generous tax relief on millions of text, online and mobile donations.”Further information:For more information on the government’s digital Gift Aid proposals, see this charity update from accountancy firm Shipleys.last_img read more

In 2014, 55,000 participants, raised £5.8 million. They did so either by getting sponsored by friends and family or pledging money they have saved by abstaining from alcohol over the course of the month.They can take part on their own or as part of a team.Dryathlon 2015 fundraising toolkitThis year the Dryathlon website features interactive functions including an ‘alcohol calculator’ which helps Dryathletes work out how much money and how many calories are saved by going dry for January. There is also a willpower test which enables participants to find out their ‘Will Power’ character, which they can then share online.The humour is there too, with the ‘Tipple Tax’ – “If you slip off the wagon just pay The Tipple Tax. Simply hang your head in shame and donate £20 to your JustGiving page”.Anthony Newman, Marketing Director at Cancer Research UK, commented:“Dryathlon’s first two years were a great success and the pressure is on for a third brilliant year. I’m really pleased with our ad campaign, developed with Abbot Mead Vickers, which builds on all our learnings since launching Dryathlon in 2012. The ‘go dry’ market has become a lot more crowded since then, but I’m confident 2014/15 will do us proud.”last_img read more

Zeal donates digital skills to Age UK Leeds

first_img Digital and creative agency Zeal is supporting Age UK Leeds with staff volunteering their time and digital skills to help with the charity’s digital inclusion scheme for older people.Members of the Zeal team have undertaken training to support the Age UK Leeds Digital Drop-In sessions, aimed at helping the older community learn the skills they need to get online.Digital inclusionAge UK Leeds provide a number of digital inclusion services in the local area and Zeal have been helping out at the weekly Digital Drop-In sessions at The Arch Café in Leeds City Centre.The Digital Drop-In sessions are designed to help older people develop their skills and confidence to get online safely, from setting up email addresses, and Internet safety to learning how to use messaging services such as Skype and Facebook to keep connected to family, friends and the local community.Digital exclusion is a real issue for the older generation with many unable to access the internet and perform tasks such as paying bills online and using price comparison sites to make sure they are on the most affordable rates for services such as electricity and gas. It can exacerbate loneliness.Three Peaks challengeIn addition to skilled volunteering, Zeal staff members have also undertaken several fundraising activities to raise money for the charity. Having completed the Leeds 10K run in July and the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, a team of staff will take part in November’s Age UK Leeds Abbey Dash to raise funds.Lisa Burnett, Fundraising Director at Age UK Leeds, thanked Zeal for its support, saying: “In Leeds there are over 32,000 older people that are lonely or isolated and its corporate partnerships like this one that help us raise much needed funds to support as many of them as possible.”Jane Rutter, CEO at Zeal, said: “We spent a long time looking for a charity we could partner as we wanted to make a real difference and get involved in a meaningful way, not just giving money. Age UK Leeds do such an important and amazing job. Thework they do connects and helps the elderly in a way which changes lives and makes an unbelievable difference.

Filthy rich Harvard

first_imgLast year Harvard University’s stash of stocks and bonds was worth $37.6 billion. That’s almost as much as the gross domestic product of the 81 million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to the CIA World Factbook.Why should Harvard be so rich and people in Congo so poor? That’s the result of imperialism and a capitalist world market that started with the extermination of Indigenous peoples in the Americas and the African Holocaust.Despite its wealth, Harvard tried to break the strike of its dining hall workers and take away their health benefits.Nearly 800 members of UNITE HERE Local 26, supported by Harvard students and the community, beat them back.Harvard’s loot, like capitalism itself, according to Karl Marx, “comes dripping from head to foot, from every pore, with blood and dirt.”The generosity of slavemaster Issac Royall Jr. helped establish Harvard Law School 200 years ago. Royall’s family fled the Caribbean island of Antigua after an attempted slave revolt in 1736 that was crushed by burning 77 Africans to death.The Royalls arrived in Massachusetts with at least 27 enslaved people. (“On the Battlefield of Merit” by Daniel R. Coquillette and Bruce A. Kimball)  Following protests in 2015, Harvard agreed to change its law school seal, which featured the Royall family crest.Harvard’s largest benefactor was hedge fund operator John Paulson, who gave $400 million to the school in 2015. The Wall Street Journal declared “foreclosures made John Paulson a billion dollars.” (April 21, 2010) Children of families who lost their homes should rejoice that their misery resulted in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences getting a hefty gift.Puritan bigots and killers Industrial Workers of the World leader Bill Haywood wrote in his autobiography that his father’s ancestors “would probably run to the Puritan bigots or the cavalier pirates. Neither case would give me reason for pride.”The wealth of so many “proper Bostonians” and the rest of New England “old money” is rooted in blood. It’s well known that the Pilgrims would have starved to death without the corn and other aid given by Native people.In return the colonists launched extermination campaigns, including the Great Swamp Massacre in 1675 in which hundreds of Native children were slaughtered. This atrocity was glorified in a history of “King Philip’s War” by the Puritan minister Increase Mather, who became Harvard’s president in 1692.Karl Marx wrote how “those sober virtuosi of Protestantism, the Puritans of New England” set a price of 50 English pounds in 1744 on the scalps of Indigenous women and children.The United States is the only country in the world that has a holiday called “Thanksgiving” that celebrates genocide. Since 1970 the United American Indians of New England has held a “Day of Mourning” on the same date in Plymouth, Mass., to tell the truth about this holocaust.Colonial New England’s economy revolved around supplying slave plantations in the Caribbean with food and other supplies. In return the 60 rum distilleries in Massachusetts and 30 in Rhode Island imported molasses. President John Adams didn’t know why people “should blush to confess that molasses was an essential ingredient in American independence.” (“Capitalism & Slavery” by Eric Williams)Slave trading was important, too. The forerunner of Brown University in Providence — which like Harvard belongs to the “Ivy League” — was started by one of the biggest slave dealers, Nicholas Brown Jr.It was on behalf of these Yankee pirates that the slave trade was kept from being prohibited for at least 20 years in Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution.The other New EnglandNo wonder abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison called the constitution a “covenant with hell.” Garrison was dragged with a rope by a mob from Boston’s State Street financial district in 1835 and only escaped with his life when the mayor had him arrested.Abolitionists were part of the other New England. The Black man Crispus Attucks became the first martyr of the U.S. American Revolution. Black soldiers helped repulse the Redcoats on Bunker Hill.In the years leading up to the Civil War, even some of Boston’s wealthy helped the anti-slavery cause. Railroad magnate John Murray Forbes shipped rifles to abolitionists in Kansas and welcomed John Brown to Boston.But the Forbes family fortune was based on smuggling opium into China. Another big-time drug pusher was Warren Delano, a grandfather of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum is named for the China merchant William Haynes Fogg.The only reason Northern capitalists supported the right of African-American men to vote was to prevent repudiation of the Civil War debt. W.E.B. Du Bois proved this in his classic “Black Reconstruction.”Yet it was Northern moneymen who helped overthrow Reconstruction, that brief period  of Black freedom from 1865 to 1877. Here’s the historic arc of the capitalist class: While the father-in-law of John D. Rockefeller — the world’s first billionaire — was a conductor on the Underground Railroad, his grandson Nelson Rockefeller was the butcher of Attica.Harvard was part of this racist reaction, which included the “eugenics” movement that promoted Nazi-like theories of “racial purity.” Tens of thousands of people, mostly young Black women, were sterilized against their will under laws upheld in a notorious 1927 Supreme Court decision written by Harvard graduate Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.A more refined version of Donald Trump was Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell, who served as vice president of the racist Immigration Restriction League. (“Harvard’s Eugenics Era,” Harvard Magazine, March-April 2016)Lowell gave Harvard students credit for joining the National Guard to try to break the IWW strike of Lawrence, Mass., textile workers in 1912. (“How Harvard Rules” by John Trumpbour) Many of today’s Harvard students would have joined the IWW instead.Armed with a Harvard Ph.D., Lothrop Stoddard published “The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy,” an influential racist diatribe during the 1920s.More recently Harvard Professor Henry Kissinger theorized about the tactical use of nuclear weapons in a 1957 book. As Nixon’s National Security Adviser, Kissinger helped kill millions in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.Harvard’s dining hall workers and their supporters confronted these centuries of racism and male chauvinism when they defeated Harvard’s filthy money.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Because his recovery will last until March, Williams will sit out the entire season, which begins Nov. 13 against Southeastern Louisiana. It was reported that Williams had suffered knee problems during the entire 2014-15 season.“It’s tough for me,” Williams said. “I haven’t missed a game my entire life. I know it will be tough for the team without me.”The Frogs lose a valuable asset in Williams, who led the team in rebounds last season, averaging 6.7 per game. His average of 2.8 offensive rebounds per game also led the Frogs and qualified for third best in the Big 12.Williams’ 30 steals were the third most of anyone on the team.Last year was Williams’ first with Frogs, having transferred to TCU from New Mexico Junior College after the 2013-14 season.With Williams out, the team is now without nine starters from last year’s campaign.
