DC Lottery issues warning over illegal sports betting

first_img DC Lottery issues warning over illegal sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sports betting “Due to these concerns, the OLG recommends that consumers only engage sports wagering using companies licensed by OLG or offered directly by the District’s through the DC Lottery,” the OLG said. The Washington DC Office of Lottery and Gaming (OLG) has warned consumers, media outlets and marketing agencies in the US capital city about the dangers of using or working with unlicensed sports betting operators. While, land-based and mobile sports betting is legal in DC, but the OLG said it is aware of a number of outlets operating in its jurisdiction without the relevant license. Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal Sports betting regulation Regions: Washington DC The OLG also extended its warning to media outlets and marketing firms, saying that any business engaged in sportsbook advertising or related activities should exercise caution in endorsing unlicensed operators. The OLG has therefore reiterated to consumers the issues they may encounter if they chose to place wagers with operators without a permit, including a lack consumer protections, integrity protocols, and anti-money laundering controls.

Gamcare partners Gamban to offer self-exclusion tool for free

first_img Gamcare partners Gamban to offer self-exclusion tool for free Beanstalk, the company behind Gamban, also joined with experience marketing agency A Game Above in July, for a joint venture to launch a new solution, Yield Sec, designed to help regulators and governments clamp down on illegal gambling. Topics: Social responsibility Problem gambling Responsible gambling Problem gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Gamban was previously available for £2.49 per month through a monthly subscription, or £2.08 per month (£24.99 per year) through an annual subscription. 2nd December 2020 | By Conor Mulheir Gamban has entered into a partnership with gambling charity Gamcare to offer a self-exclusion solution free of charge to all UK residents. The tool also provides access to a database of black market sites, which A Game Above said is the largest list of its type in the world, allowing users to develop or update their own operator blacklists. Tags: Gamban GamCare The charity announced last week that it had partnered with LAB, City University and Ignition House on a new research initiative to better understand online gambling behaviours and identify potential indicators of vulnerability. A Game Above also said that Yield Sec provides a solution for player protection, in that it helps force unlicensed websites from a market. This means that minors and those struggling with problem gambling cannot access these platforms, and customers cannot access sites that do not comply with social responsibility safeguards put in place by regulators and governments. In September, Gamcare launched a new safer gambling toolkit, to help UK financial institutions, gambling businesses and debt advice agencies identify and support customers experiencing gambling-related financial harms. In February, Gamban partnered with Lloyds Banking Group, owner of British high street banks Halifax, Lloyds and Bank of Scotland, in a deal which allowed customers of any Lloyds Banking Group app to use Gamban free of charge.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service] Students filled the primary and secondary school classrooms at Trinity Cathedral complex in Port-au-Prince, music students continue training in what was a convent, and a covered, temporary worship space has been constructed on the grounds, all signs of life noted by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori when she visited the cathedral during a mid-December visit to Haiti.“The Episcopal Church in Haiti continues to play a major and essential role in this renaissance.  The cathedral church in Port-au-Prince was long seen as the spiritual and cultural soul of Haiti.  Today, its bells are quiet (in storage), its world-renowned murals largely destroyed (three have been preserved for reuse), and its naked altar platform awaits the cathedral’s rebuilding,” said Jefferts Schori in a statement released by The Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs on Jan. 8.  “The cathedral grounds are lively, with primary and secondary school now serving more children than before, a music school that continues to train internationally renowned choirs and instrumentalists, and a trade school that is rising from the spot where bodies lay for days in the ruins of its former collapse.”On Jan. 12, 2010, Haiti suffered a magnitude-7, catastrophic earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people, left as many wounded, and displaced more than 1.5 million people, in what was one of the world’s worst natural disasters in recent history. The Episcopal Diocese of Haiti, numerically the largest of The Episcopal Church’s 109 dioceses, in a matter of seconds lost 80 percent of its infrastructure in Port-au-Prince and Léogâne, the epicenter of the earthquake less than 20 miles west of the capital.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Haiti Bishop Jean Zaché Duracin and Alexander Baumgarten, director of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s Department of Public Engagement and Mission Communication, look at one of the three surviving cathedral murals from among the 14 world-famous ones that adorned the walls of the previous cathedral depicting biblical stories and religious scenes in Haitian motifs. The surviving murals are stored on the cathedral grounds. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSIn the earthquake’s immediate aftermath, governments and international relief agencies committed billions of dollars in aid to rebuild the Caribbean nation, long considered the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.“On January 13 of that year, the world was in Haiti helping us,” said the Rt. Rev. Ogé Beauvoir, bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Haiti, in a statement commemorating the fifth anniversary of the earthquake. “In March 2010, I was at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City watching the whole world pledge about $11 billion dollars to help rebuild Haiti.”The 1.5 million displaced people sought shelter and humanitarian relief in 1,500 tent cities that formed in the earthquake’s aftermath. And for months it was almost impossible for vehicles and pedestrians to navigate most of the streets of the capital, Beauvoir said.For now, members of Trinity Cathedral gather at a temporary, covered worship space on the cathedral grounds. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSIn addition to the progress visible on the campus of Holy Trinity Cathedral, progress can be seen in the way that streets have been cleared of rubble, new government buildings and stronger building codes have been implemented, and more than 90 percent of people living in the tent cities have left.“The government has given assistance to those people to move to their previous neighborhood by helping them renovate their homes, and has built new apartment compounds for the others. The Champs-de-Mars area and other places of the Port-au-Prince and Léogâne are now free of those camps,” said Beauvoir. “The current government has made a lot of efforts.”Elected in 2011, President Michel Martelly has overseen the bulk of the country’s recovery, though in recent months violent protests against his government and a call for long-delayed legislative and local elections have undermined his role.The country’s parliament was set to dissolve and the president to rule by decree on Jan. 12, the same day as the fifth anniversary of the earthquake, if a deal isn’t reached.Beauvoir recently served on an 11-member commission of former officials and religious leaders to help resolve the political stalemate that stalled elections since 2011.There has always been political instability in Haiti, said Duracin, during an interview with Episcopal News Service in Haiti in mid-December, noting that many young people feel abandoned by the government.Beauvoir acknowledged the instability and the concerns of young people in his statement.“At the fifth anniversary of the earthquake, our biggest challenge is to rebuild the Haitian person in mind, spirit, and body. We need to develop a new Haitian man, a new Haitian woman, who will provide the new leadership that is required to take Haiti into the 21st century,” he said.An exterior wall of Holy Trinity Cathedral still remains and will be incorporated into the new cathedral. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSThe presiding bishop made a historic visit to northern Haiti in mid-December and preached at Holy Spirit Parish in Cap-Haitien, visited the parish’s school and the nearby Holy Spirit trade school, before heading south to spend a day in the capital. It was her sixth trip to Haiti, the first being in 2008.In the earthquake’s aftermath, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society began raising money to rebuild the cathedral and its ministry.The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the legal and canonical name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business, and carries out mission.Architectural plans have been approved and the cathedral will be constructed in three phases, said Elizabeth Lowell, director of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s Office of Development, adding that $2.5 million has so far been raised to fund construction. The total project is estimated between $21 and $25 million.In addition, many of the small, rural schools outside the capital have been rebuilt, many with the help of the 600 Episcopal parishes and entities in the United States that have formed Haitian partnerships, said Lowell.Still, she said, “in terms of what we’ve done the needs are so great and so expansive,” citing an Episcopal hospital that remains damaged in Léogâne.Since 2012, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society has led seven pilgrimages to Haiti in an effort to connect Episcopalians in the United States with the rebuilding of the church and the country, and working with local partners to determine their needs.The Diocese of Haiti includes 46 clergy serving more than 200 churches, 254 schools, two hospitals and 13 clinics.Eighty percent of Haitians live in poverty; the earthquake laid bare the everyday struggles of life. The tent cities, which provided homes to people displaced by the earthquake, also attracted Haitians from the countryside seeking relief from international aid organizations and foreign governments engaged in relief and recovery efforts.Eventually, non-governmental organizations and donors realized they needed to invest in rural and urban development outside the capital to encourage Haitians to return home. That work can be seen both at St. Barnabas Center for Agriculture near Cap-Haitien, where the diocese is training 54 students in agriculture, and at the technical school where it offers courses in mechanics, plumbing and electricity.With more than 300 acres of fertile land in a country where food insecurity is common, St. Barnabas has attracted support from Episcopal partners, other organizations, the Haitian government and universities.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

El programa dona productos a bancos de alimentos y a vecinos necesitados. Cada año invita a niños al huerto para que aprendan a cuidar la creación. Foto de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Brígida[Episcopal News Service] De las muchas formas en que la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (DFMS) apoya a los episcopales en su empeño por responder al llamado de la cuarta Marca de la Misión de “procurar transformar las estructuras sociales injustas”, el Ministerio de Jubileo es una de las más firmes. (La DFMS [Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society] es el nombre legal y canónico con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).Hay actualmente cerca de 700 centros de jubileo en la Iglesia Episcopal. Los centros laboran para facultar a los pobres y oprimidos en sus comunidades proporcionándoles servicios directos, tales como alimento, albergue, atención sanitaria y abogando por los derechos humanos.“Cuando uno va un centro de jubileo, uno no ve sólo lo que hace la agencia local de servicio social”, dijo el Rdo. Mark Stevenson, el misionero de la DFMS a cargo de [combatir] la pobreza nacional. “Uno no sólo ve lo que la iglesia hace el domingo por la mañana cuando [los feligreses] se reúnen para el culto. Uno no sólo ve a alguien escribiendo cartas a la legislatura estatal o sosteniendo conversaciones con líderes comunitarios. Uno ve una mezcla de todo eso junto desde una perspectiva de la Iglesia. Creo que eso es lo que el Jubileo hace muy bien”.La Convención General, reunida en Nueva Orleáns en 1982, estableció el Ministerio de Jubileo para “retar y confrontar a los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal y de otras iglesias… a entender las realidades de la pobreza y la injusticia, alentándoles a asumir un papel activo en responder a las necesidades de las personas pobres y oprimidas y en la lucha contra las causas de esos sufrimientos”.La Convención emitió este reto a partir de la convicción que “un ministerio de discipulado conjunto en Cristo con las personas pobres y oprimidas, dondequiera que éstas se encuentren, para responder a necesidades básicas y edificar una sociedad más justa, está en el tuétano de la misión de la Iglesia”.El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia designa los ministerios locales como centros de Jubileo luego que las organizaciones concluyen exitosamente un proceso de solicitud. El comité que revisa a esos solicitantes con frecuencia tiene una tarea difícil, dijo Stevenson, porque todos los solicitantes representan “realmente buenos ministerios”.El fuerte del Jubileo radica en su naturaleza multifacética, apuntó él. “Es servicio a los pobres, es promoción social y es culto. Es la Iglesia en su expresión mejor”.Al elegir qué ministerios reciben la designación de Centro de Jubileo, añadió “tenemos que destacar los programas que realmente unen todos eses factores de diferentes maneras y lo hacen bien”.La Diócesis de Colorado ofrece un magnífico ejemplo de los empeños del Jubileo diocesano, dijo Stevenson.La Rda. Rebecca Jones, diácona que sirve como la encargada del Jubileo de la diócesis, dijo que ella y su predecesor, el Rdo. Chris Johnson, han trabajado durante años por formar lo que ahora es una red de 35 centros de Jubileo extendidos a través de los 167.532 kilómetros cuadrados del estado. Esos ministerios oscilan entre los puramente urbanos como el Ministerio de Santa Clara, que sirve a indigentes y hambrientos en una barriada deprimida de Denver, hasta los que son rurales como la Cocina de Gracias y el Centro del Buen Samaritano que atiende a personas que viven en los alrededores de Cortez en la Ladera Occidental [Western Slope]. Dos ministerios con sede en Colorado operan internacionalmente: el Proyecto Haití de Colorado, que ayuda a salir de la pobreza a comunidades rurales haitianas, y el Proyecto Educación Sudán del Sur, que construye escuelas sostenibles y capacita a líderes comunitarios en una región devastada por la guerra.Alumnas de la escuela de San Pablo, en Petti Trou de Nippes, Haití, en el momento del almuerzo. La escuela, fundada hace 25 años por el Proyecto Haití de Colorado, ofrece comidas nutritivas a más de 700 estudiantes todos los días. Foto del Proyecto Haití de Colorado.En septiembre de 2013, cuando una devastadora inundación asoló el corredor urbano de Front Range en Colorado, tres centros de Jubileo —el Ministerio de Encrucijada en Estes Park, el Ministerio de Cooperación del condado de Logan y el Ministerio de Solidaridad en el condado de Morgan— “se convirtieron en el punto de contacto para que la Agencia Episcopal para Ayuda y Desarrollo acudiera en socorro”, dijo Jones.El Ministerio de Jubileo es una parte visible de los empeños comunitarios de la diócesis. Jones le da crédito al firme apoyo del obispo Rob O’Neill por eso, diciendo que él “habla acerca de ello” dondequiera que va y la gente puede decir cuán orgullosa está la diócesis del Ministerio de Jubileo. Sus centros individuales están en el ciclo diocesano de oración, de manera que se ora por ellos con regularidad. “La gente comienza a asimilarlo aun sin darse cuenta”, dijo Jones refiriéndose a la labor de Jubileo en la diócesis.Toda esa labor y visibilidad han significado que “en algún punto hemos alcanzado una masa crítica, y ahora se me acercan para decirme que quieren convertirse en un ministerio de Jubileo”.Las personas que integran el Ministerio de Jubileo de la diócesis se reúnen dos o tres veces al año para compartir información, celebrar sus logros y aprender de oportunidades de colaboración, así como para enterarse de los retos por los cuales sus colegas necesitan orar.Jones describió su trabajo en general como relacional. “Yo creo un espacio y lo mantengo abierto para que estos ministerios se reúnan y para que el Espíritu Santo realice la obra de hacer productivas esas conexiones”, dijo.Los centros de Jubileo tienen derecho a subvenciones de apoyo de la DFMS para expandir su trabajo en un ciclo regular. En la última ronda de subvenciones, 14 destinatarios en 11 diócesis recibieron $49.965 en apoyo de su misión y ministerio.En la Diócesis de Virginia Occidental, por ejemplo, al Centro de Aprendizaje y Desarrollo de la Casa de San Juan en Huntington le otorgaron una subvención de desarrollo de $32.200 para poner en práctica una nueva visión y estrategia de misión en varias áreas y programas.El centro funciona desde 1991, después de que una mujer de la junta parroquial de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal Church] instara a sus colegas a que reflexionaran sobre lo que la parroquia estaba haciendo por las personas que se encontraban de puertas afuera, dijo Jerry Coleman, director ejecutivo del centro. La parroquia no tardó en darse cuenta de que un proyecto de viviendas grande que quedaba cerca tenía niños que necesitaban un lugar seguro adonde ir después de la escuela.Desde un apartamento vacío donde comenzó a funcionar y donde le brindaba a más de 80 niños meriendas y seguridad, el proyecto no tardó en trasladarse al centro comunitario de Marcum Terrace. Las instalaciones de su cocina significaban que los voluntarios podían servir una comida completa, y el espacio mayor de que ahora disponía, hacía posible que el programa fuese más grande. En los 24 años transcurridos desde entonces, el programa de aprendizaje, mentoría y alimentación del centro ha servido para robustecer la autoestima y la confianza en sí mismos de los niños, así como sus habilidades interpersonales y sus actitudes hacia la educación Al hacer esto, el ministerio ha tratado de contraatacar la adicción, la violencia, la encarcelación y la pobreza.Voluntarios y participantes del Centro de Aprendizaje y Desarrollo de la Casa de San Juan trabajan en el terreno de juegos que se encuentra fuera del centro en los terrenos del complejo de apartamentos Marcum Terrace en Huntington, Virginia Occidental. Foto del Centro de Aprendizaje y Desarrollo de la Casa de San Juan.“Allí estaba la necesidad”, dijo Coleman. El ministerio que surgió del “llamado a despertar” —como él mismo lo definió— de una miembro de la junta parroquial, “prueba lo que una persona puede hacer”.Coleman ha visto las actitudes de los niños cambiar completamente. Una niña vino al programa con un gran resentimiento, contó él. Se mantenía callada y resultaba difícil convencerla de que participara en las actividades del centro. Desde que el personal del centro descubrió que tenía serios problemas de aprendizaje y obtuvieron su colaboración, hubo un giro de 180 grados”, señaló. Ahora participa con entusiasmo.Los líderes del centro se reunieron recientemente para discutir cómo usar la subvención para el desarrollo. Un programa de alfabetización para pre escolar encabezaba la lista, así como hacer una reunión de familia una noche al mes, actualizar el Wi-Fi y las computadoras, las tabletas, los muebles, los instrumentos musicales sencillos, los utensilios de jardinería y la seguridad. Lo último se necesita cada vez más en la medica en que el centro mejora su tecnología.La subvención cubre costos de personal. Coleman dijo que había planes para crear un director de participación comunitaria de media jornada que sería el responsable de la recaudación de fondos, de coordinar el trabajo voluntario y de concientizar a la comunidad de Huntington acerca del programa de San Juan.Sin embargo, agregó Coleman, la función del centro es más que su edificio y sus cosas. “En definitiva, más importante que las cosas que uno tiene en ese edificio son las personas que están en él”.Por ejemplo, el centro ha creado una estrecha relación con la Universidad Marshall de Huntington, especialmente con su Departamento de Trastornos de la Comunicación, muchos de cuyos estudiantes trabajan de voluntarios [en el centro]. Ellos ayudan a los niños que tienen problemas de aprendizaje. Dos asistentes graduados obtuvieron dispensas de costos de matrícula en la universidad y pequeños estipendios del centro para ser directores del programa. Además, algunos estudiantes de dietética ayuda en la planificación de las comidas.Lo que comenzó como un pequeño programa extraescolar en un proyecto de viviendas en Huntington, Virginia Occidental, se ha convertido en un centro de Jubileo multifacético que se conoce como el Centro de Aprendizaje y Desarrollo de la Casa de San Juan, el cual proporcionó esta foto.“Hablamos muchísimo acerca de lo que hacemos por los niños y el impacto que nuestro servicio puede tener en ellos, pero es también muy importante entender el impacto que los niños tienen en nuestro personal y en los voluntarios”, subrayó Coleman. “Existe un gran apego entre nuestros niños y nuestro personal que fluye en ambas direcciones. Los niños ciertamente nos enriquecen”.Y el reconocimiento de que el ministerio funciona en ambas direcciones, transformando a todo el que participa en él, es un indicio de la amplia energía que dimana del tipo de ministerios que tiene lugar en los centros de Jubileo.Jones en Colorado piensa que el futuro del Ministerio de Jubileo es muy vasto y puede verse como un instrumento que ayuda a la Iglesia Episcopal, así como a las comunidades en las cuales existe.“Las parroquias que se identifican vivamente con el trabajo comunitario y con el Ministerio de Jubileo y la justicia social son invariablemente las parroquias que crecen y prosperan, y yo no creo que sea una coincidencia”, dijo ella. “Creo que el Ministerio de Jubileo representa al menos una senda viable hacia el futuro de la Iglesia Episcopal”.El presupuesto 2013-2015 aprobado por la Convención General asignó $1 millón para lograr que los episcopales contribuyan a la erradicación de la pobreza nacional (en el renglón 108 aquí). Esa asignación, incluidos $100.000 en subvenciones del Ministerio de Jubileo hasta la fecha en el trienio, es parte de la manera en que la DFMS está respondiendo a la cuarta Marca de la Misión, que llama a los miembros de la Comunión Anglicana a transformar las estructuras sociales injustas, a denunciar la violencia de cualquier tipo y a buscar la paz y la reconciliación.El Informe a la Iglesia, publicado recientemente, detalla la labor de la DFMS, sostenida por el presupuesto hasta la fecha en el actual trienio, incluida la Cuarta Marca de la Misión descrita en las páginas 56-59.La Convención General estructuró el actual presupuesto trienal en torno a las Cinco Marcas de la Misión de la Comunión [Anglicana] y proporcionó sumas significativas no asignadas para nuevas obras orientadas en torno a cada una de las Marcas de la Misión. La intención era que la labor resultante se hiciera en nuevas asociaciones de colaboración con diócesis, congregaciones y otras organizaciones episcopales. La DFMS ha proporcionado el capital inicial o las subvenciones compartidas o ambas cosas, así como el apoyo y la experiencia del personal para la nueva tarea.— La Rda.

The “Único Building” is a group of twelve apartments distributed in eight floors, located in the area of Nueva Costanera.  The simplicity of its rectangular volumetry, contrasts with its meticulous envelope treatment, created with the main objetive of obtaining maximum internal confort and control of privacy for its residents, thus avoiding the residents´problem of incorporating elements external to the project itself.  For this reason, a second facade was designed independent of the main structure, allowing great thermal confort within enclosed wall areas and a dynamic solar control system and privacy in window areas. As a result, a great stony expression contrast was created with the dynamic perimetral perforated blinds. Continuous metal bands in every floor connect the terraces of the east facade with the envelope of the rest of the volume. These bands also incorporporate the guides that allow the blinds to slide.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!Detail Section – 1Save this picture!© Nico SaiehThe Project was thought of considering the highest standards of passive thermal confort in order to minimize the necessity for thermal conditioning equipment. To achieve this, all facades have incorporated flame retardant sprayed polyurethane, as well as clay alveolar palmettes attached through metallic profiles to create the effect of ventilated facades. Solar control is achieved using cristal Low E type thermopanel windows, which were preceeded by microperforated metallic blinds. These elements have a double objetive. In the first place, they sift the light and control the amount of incoming heat of different spaces. Furthermore, these panels give the facades a kinetic effect, depending on the hour of the day and the specific use the owners give to each different area.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehSave this picture!1st Floor plan – 1.250Save this picture!© Nico SaiehAs for temperature control, aerothermy was chosen as its technology takes advantage of the energy of external air. Direct cooling cycles are used in air conditioning  and the reverse to produce heating and hot water through an independent heat bomb for each apartment. Heat through aerothermy is sustainable and qualified as renewable energy by the European Union.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehProject gallerySee allShow lessMAD Architects Begins Construction on Mountainous Quzhou Sports Campus in ChinaArchitecture NewsShortlist for the 2018 Architectural Photography Awards RevealedArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Aurelio González 3450, Vitacura.

Campaign challenges UK to double charitable giving by 2014

first_imgCampaign challenges UK to double charitable giving by 2014 Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy The Giving Campaign The Giving Campaign is challenging the UK to double charitable giving within the next decade. The Campaign – a national initiative to promote charitable giving in the UK – has seen individual giving rise by more than half a billion pounds during the fixed three year lifetime of the Campaign and is extending this new challenge to the UK within the form of a Blueprint for Giving, (freely available to download from www.givingcampaign.org.uk).Commenting on the need for increased donations in the UK, Amanda Delew, Director of The Giving Campaign says: “Each year, the UK public gives £7 billion to good causes each year, but with over 180,000 charities and an average monthly donation of only £13, this could be so much higher. But the onus doesn’t only lie with charities and their donors. Businesses, the Government, financial service professionals and the media all have a role to play in making a real difference to giving in the UK.”Judy Beard, Director of Communications and Fundraising at Macmillan Cancer Relief, adds:“At Macmillan Cancer Relief we raise around £84 million in voluntary income each year. Each and every day, 741 people are diagnosed with cancer. As the number of people living with cancer rises, so does the need for our cancer care services. The more funds we raise the more we can do to make a real difference to their lives.”Issued at the closure of the Campaign in June 2004, the Blueprint encourages individuals, charities, Government, businesses, the financial services sector and the media to strive to continue the Campaign’s aim of generating a culture of giving in the UK. The Blueprint establishes a series of targeted initiatives to meet the challenge of doubling donations by 2014, they include:For individuals:• Consider charitable donations in relation to affordability, aiming to give around 1.5% of their annual income to charity, working upwards for wealthy people and lower for those that can’t afford it.• Give in a regular, planned way rather than ad hoc, spontaneous donations• Donate tax-effectively, making use of schemes such as Gift Aid (boosting the value of each donation by as much as 28%), Payroll Giving and Share Giving.• Setting up a personal Charitable Trust or a charity bank account such as the CAF Account, through which charitable donations can be structured.• Speak openly about their charitable donations, not flaunting their generosity but talking about the positives of the experience to encourage friends and family to follow suit.For charities:• Engage donors by involving them with charitable activities, recognising the contribution of major donors and being transparent about fundraising costs and services.• Club together with other charities for the benefit of the sector, combining expertise and capabilities to raise public trust and confidence of charities across the UK.• Promote the tax reliefs available to donors wherever possible, assigning specific staff with responsibility for monitoring uptake (aiming for 75% of eligible donors using Gift Aid) and ensuring all fundraisers fully understand each method.• Invest in major gift fundraising, tailoring the fundraising method to the target donor, asking for more from those who can afford it, and developing meaningful relationships with those whose support they seek.• Involve trustees in the fundraising process, ensuring they understand the methods and review fundraising strategies each year and not being afraid to ask trustees themselves, when soliciting major gifts.• Influence young people to volunteer and fundraise, aiming to develop a generation of committed charity supporters.For Chief Executives of public and private organisations:• Provide leadership of charity in the workplace by giving money, goods and time to good causes.• Engage employees in workplace giving by promoting Payroll Giving, aiming to achieve a minimum 10% employee participation rate and matching donations where possible.For Government:• Review charity tax reliefs to ensure they are as effective and user-friendly as possible and investigate the creation of new tax-effective charitable giving vehicles in the UK.• Investigate ways to foster more opportunities for planned and tax-effective giving• Continue to support Giving Nation – a schools-based programme working within the citizenship curriculum to encourage 11-16 year olds to understand and participate in charitable activity.For the financial services industry and professional advisers:• Make information and advice on giving an integral part of their work, advising clients about the tax breaks available to donors and prompting them about their gifts.• Innovate to develop new ways of giving, developing new financial products that facilitate charitable donation (charity financial products).• Encourage more clients to consider including charitable gifts in their will.For the media:• Promote positive stories of philanthropy, making giving as much a part of life on TV, the radio and in newspapers, as it is in real life.The Blueprint for Giving was based upon the Campaign’s working knowledge and expertise in this area, together with combined input from leaders of the voluntary sector, businesses, Government, media and academia.The Giving Campaign closes on 30th June 2004, however various projects have future potential and those aspects are being handed over to the relevant organisations that are most closely suited to continue this work, they include:– Giving Nation – the dynamic youth Campaign that promotes charity in schools – has been transferred to the Citizenship Foundation– Campaign publications have been taken on by a range of voluntary sector organisations (and will continue to be available at the Campaign website)– The development of charity financial products and services will be continued beyond the lifetime of the Campaign, driven forward by the Charities Aid Foundation– The Inland Revenue will maintain the Campaign website at www.givingcampaign.org.uk until March 2005– The Institute of Fundraising will co-ordinate the annual Debate on giving– UK Fundraising (www.fundraising.co.uk) will be publishing tax-effective giving information and materials from The Giving Campaign website onlineThese projects will be monitored by the Council for Charitable Support, co-ordinated by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).For further
