Nationwide Foundation expands its Small Grants Programme criteria

first_imgThe Nationwide Foundation has expanded its Small Grants Programme criteria for charities working with older people. Small grants can now be applied for by charities working for the benefit of all older people to improve their housing needs or address financial exclusion.Before December 2009 applicants had to demonstrate that the older people they were funding fell into one of six categories.The Nationwide Foundation’s Small Grants Programme makes grants every two months. Grants of up to £5,000 are available to registered charities with incomes of under £500,000.Small Grants are also available to charities which work with survivors of domestic abuse, focusing their funding on finance and housing issues.Lisa Parker, chief executive of the Nationwide Foundation, said: “Expanding our criteria gives charities more opportunity to provide support to all older people.“Our funding is used to tackle a wide range of financial and housing issues. In cold weather, many charities are helping older people stay warm in their homes and manage their energy bills. This is typical of work we may fund.“I urge charities which are eligible to apply for a grant. Our application process is very simple and we pride ourselves on processing grants quickly.”www.nationwidefoundation.org.uk  22 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding Supportive communities nationwide Howard Lake | 24 January 2010 | Newscenter_img Nationwide Foundation expands its Small Grants Programme criteria 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.

JustGiving introduces rapid ‘one-touch’ mobile giving facility

first_img Howard Lake | 14 June 2013 | News for UK donors, using a simplified Gift Aid opt-in process, recognised by HMRC, and remembering a donor’s Gift Aid preferences JustGiving introduces rapid ‘one-touch’ mobile giving facility the JustGiving system automatically remembering a donor’s details and preferences when they donate on a mobile device 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. Online giving service JustGiving has redeveloped its mobile donation process to make giving even faster and simpler with a ‘one-touch’ process.The company believes that the new facility is the “the world’s fastest way to give to charity on mobile”. It has streamlined the giving process in response to the growing number of people using its services on a mobile device, and the need to be able to accept donations quickly, before people are distracted.The one-touch donation process on smartphones includes: Advertisement avoiding the need for donors to use a debit or credit card when using a smartphone, encouraging repeat or regular givingThe new facility applies to the mobile website, and not yet to the apps.Why one-touch giving?Mobile traffic to JustGiving overtook desktop traffic for the first time in April 2013: over half of users now visit JustGiving using a smartphone or tablet. Based on this growth, JustGiving estimates that by next year about 70% of all traffic will come from mobile devices.The simplified Gift Aid process is also expected to drive up the percentage of donors giving via Gift Aid, increasing the rate of Gift Aid reclaim on mobile gifts.Lee Marshall, Product Manager at JustGiving, explained why speed and simplicity are essential for mobile gifts.”More than ever, people want to give wherever and whenever they want, on any device” he said. “In a world full of distractions, it’s vital for us to continue to make giving as easy and intuitive as possible. Giving through this new interface is not only breathtakingly fast, but it also means UK charities are more likely to benefit from Gift Aid, even on mobile.”Our next challenge now is to encourage mobile donors to give more, and more often, to their favourite causes.”Rachael Bloom, Founder and Executive Director, Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK, added that the new JustGiving one-touch mobile facility “makes life so much easier for our donors, and means they’re much more likely to donate when they’re out and about”.

Lucha de clases en Wisconsin desde 2011

first_imgPor el Colectivo WW-MO de MilwaukeeEl 10 de febrero del 2011, estudiantes y trabajadoras/es comenzaron la histórica ocupación del edificio del Capitolio estatal en Madison-Wisconsin para oponerse a la racista y anti-sindical Ley 10.Marcando el comienzo de una de las mayores revueltas en EUA desde la década de 1930, durante semanas decenas de miles de trabajadoras/es y personas de pueblos oprimidos ocuparon edificios y marcharon en Madison para derrotar a la Ley 10. Decenas de acciones de solidaridad se llevaron a cabo en todo el mundo, incluyendo un día de cierre de los muelles de la costa oeste por los miembros del Sindicato Internacional de Estibadores y Trabajadores de Almacén, (ILWU por las siglas en inglés).Eventualmente, líderes sindicales moderados o reaccionarios vinculados a los partidos Demócrata y Republicano maniobraron para dirigir la ocupación del Capitolio estatal hacia la arena electoral. Se puso en marcha una fallida campaña de revocación contra el gobernador de Wisconsin Scott Walker, para hacer frente a diversos sectores de la clase trabajadora que querían acciones directas, incluyendo el cierre de varias industrias capitalistas o hasta una huelga general. Eventualmente, la Ley 10 fue empujada por la legislatura racista y de derecha de Wisconsin y firmada por Walker.Desde esta significativa derrota para la clase obrera y los pueblos oprimidos, en los últimos cinco años los funcionarios políticos servidores de Wall Street en la Legislatura y el propio Walker han participado en viciosos procesos de austeridad capitalista tipo Jim Crow [n. de t.: de segregación racial], derrocando o eviscerando numerosas leyes que beneficiaban a las/os trabajadores y las comunidades, leyes que se ganaron como concesiones a las masas por la lucha de clases directa en la década de 1960, de 1930 y anteriores.Estos incluyen los mayores recortes en la historia de Wisconsin en educación desde grados primarios hasta la superior y la expansión de las escuelas charter por todo el estado. Se implementaron numerosas formas de desregulación y privatización. Se redujeron las protecciones del medioambiente.Se redujeron la mayoría de las disposiciones salariales prevalecientes, el “derecho-a-trabajar” por menos se puso en práctica, la permanencia en puestos de facultad en la Universidad de Wisconsin fue eliminada y la protección del servicio público se redujo.  Se redujeron los beneficios por desempleo mientras que implementaron pruebas de drogas para las/os beneficiarios de asistencia social.  Quitaron los fondos para la Planificación de la Familia.Austeridad capitalista crea enterradoresPero como han luchado contra los ataques, las masas en Wisconsin están aprendiendo.En su “Conferencia sobre la revolución de 1905” a un grupo de jóvenes de la clase trabajadora en Zurich-Suiza, V.I. Lenin escribió:  “La verdadera educación de las masas no se puede separar de la lucha independiente, política y sobre todo revolucionaria, de las masas mismas.  Solo la lucha educa a la clase explotada.  Solo la lucha le da a conocer la magnitud de su propio poder, amplía su horizonte, mejora sus habilidades, aclara la mente, forja su voluntad;  y por lo tanto, hasta los reaccionarios tuvieron que admitir que el año 1905, el año de la lucha, el ‘año loco’, definitivamente enterró la Rusia patriarcal”.  (“La revolución de 1905”, enero 1917)La austeridad en Wisconsin ha sido luchada por las masas a cada paso, en particular por las/os que eran jóvenes y estudiantes en 2011 pero que ahora son trabajadoras/es militantes con consciencia de clase.  Muchas/os se están convirtiendo en líderes, se identifican con el socialismo o se están haciendo comunistas.Estas/os líderes emergentes no han conocido otra cosa que la austeridad y la guerra, y no tienen futuro bajo el capitalismo.  Están empezando a moverse en batallas ofensivas ya que aprenden que para que la clase trabajadora pueda lograr cualquier victoria y en particular para lograr el socialismo, las masas no deben quedar encerradas en una serie de batallas defensivas sin fin.Esto está reforzado por una nueva ola de jóvenes y estudiantes oprimidas/os y militantes en formaciones de Las Vidas Negras Importan como Joven, Dotada/o y Negra/o en Madison y la Coalición por la Justicia en Milwaukee, organizaciones pro derechos de inmigrantes tales como Juventud Habilitada en la Lucha (YES por sus siglas en inglés) y jóvenes indígenas que luchan por sus tierras sagradas y sus artefactos.  Otros aspectos destacados de la lucha de clases incluyen las exitosas huelgas en 2015 del Sindicato Amalgamado de Tránsito, Seccional 998 (ATU L-998) y del Sindicato Trabajadores Automotrices Seccional 833 (UAW L-833).Estos acontecimientos que han ocurrido desde 2011 son parte de un proceso irregular pero continuo de trabajadoras/es veteranos y de los pueblos oprimidos por todo el estado que están cada vez más escépticos sobre la capacidad del Partido Demócrata para ofrecer algún alivio a las masas.  Están buscando alternativas a la miseria absoluta y la destrucción infligidas sobre ellas/os por parte de los bancos, las corporaciones y sus sirvientes políticos.  Cualquier ilusión de que el sistema capitalista pudiera ser reformado se ha hecho añicos.Karl Marx escribió en el “Manifiesto Comunista”:  “Lo que produce la burguesía, ante todo, son sus propios sepultureros.  Su caída y la victoria del proletariado son igualmente inevitables”.Es en este espíritu que, a pesar de la actual austeridad implacable en Wisconsin, durante la primera semana del quinto aniversario de la ocupación del Capitolio estatal en 2011, numerosas batallas de clase estaban en apogeo y en erupción, incluyendo el “Día sin latinas/os” con 50.000 participantes el 18 de febrero en Madison.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Multinational unity disrupts Trump

first_imgDonald Trump and his racist, bigoted supporters miscalculated when they thought they could have a recruitment rally in Southwest Virginia without opposition.Southwest Virginia is an area of Appalachia that is continuing to be devastated by coal barons and bankers. Workers there face mass unemployment, environmental disasters, starvation, homelessness and other horrendous effects of Wall Street plunder.Historically, one of the only organizations that has brought real relief and a livable quality of life to the workers and their communities in Southwest Virginia has been the United Mine Workers union — not Wall Street and certainly not racist bigots like Trump.Trump thought he’d come to Southwest Virginia and have an open field to recruit white workers to his racist, anti-worker, pro-imperialist program by blaming immigrants, migrants, Muslims, Black and other people of color for the ongoing capitalist depression and its effects. In the spirit of the best fighting periods of the UMW, he got something else.Immediately upon learning that Trump had booked the Dedham Auditorium for a Feb. 29 recruitment rally at Radford University in Radford, Va., students and their allies began protest plans through social media, campus leafleting and other organizing.Protesters began arriving at Radford University early on the morning of Feb. 29 and took positions on the sidewalks leading to the auditorium and right outside the facility. They didn’t leave for hours, until Trump was off campus. Anti-racist, working-class placards went up, such as “Muslim lives matter,” “Jobs not racism,” “Black and migrant lives matter” and “Stop right-to-work, say no to racism and union-busting.” A banner reading “Donald Trump: racist tool of the rich, enemy of the poor” was unfurled.By the time the doors opened, thousands were waiting, and not all going inside were Trump supporters. This became clear when almost immediately upon speaking, Trump was repeatedly interrupted. At one point, numerous Black students linked arms and began chanting, disrupting the entire proceedings, and then marching out en masse to the protest outside.While the disruptions were going on inside the event, outside, hundreds of multinational protesters — Black, Arab, Muslim, Mexican and working-class white students and workers — began chanting slogans such as “Racist, sexist, anti-gay! Right-wing bigots, go away!” At one point hundreds of students, many wearing white T-shirts with anti-racist slogans, stood on the foyer roof of the auditorium, chanting and telling Trump and his fellow racist bigots to get out of Radford and don’t come back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

(Photo by James Carbone)  Business News George Floyd family attorney Benjamin Crump led a rally at Pasadena City Hall Monday with two of Floyd’s brothers, family members including children of Anthony McClain, and co-counsel Caree Harper to demand the firing and arrests of the police officers involved in the shooting death of McClain last summer.McClain, 32, was shot twice in the back while fleeing police during a traffic stop on North Raymond Avenue in Northwest Pasadena on Saturday,  August 15,  2020.“Just like those who killed George Floyd unjustly,” said Crump, “We want the officers who killed Anthony McClain arrested and convicted for killing Anthony McClain.”“We’re here because, Caree Harper told me there is a pattern and practice, a history, in Pasadena, California, where they just kill black people and sweep it under the rug as if their lives didn’t matter,” Crump also told the audience.Dozens of boisterous supporters, many carrying signs, mixed with a large media contingent of media.Crump stood in front of City Hall backed by two of George Floyd’s brothers, Philonise and Rodney, and Brandon Williams, Floyd’s nephew,  along with the children of Anthony McClain—Anthony Jr., his daughter SkyLynn, and his son Bryce—and their mothers.“[McClain] didn’t pass of a natural cause. He was killed by a police officer that should be locked up,” said Philonise Floyd. “The man ran out of his shoes and was shot in the back.”Deandra Williams, mother of McClain’s daughter Skylinn Williams, told the crowd that “Anthony was a great Dad, he was very hands-on, and was just talking to his daughter on FaceTime before this happened. He always told his children to leave their (mark) on the world.”Solemuli Afaese, mother of Anthony McClain, Jr. was too overcome with grief to speak to the media and spectators. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honoree George Clinton also briefly spoke.“We are a nation under one groove. We cannot let him down,” Clinton said, referring to McClain.Several federal civil rights lawsuits have been filed by Harper and other lawyers representing other family members. Monday’s City Council meeting was canceled ahead of the rally “out of an abundance” of caution. Addressing Pasadena City Councilmember Tyron Hampton as he stood in the audience, Crump told Hampton to make sure the Council didn’t cancel again and instead hear their demands in the future. The City Council is currently meeting virtually and elected officials would not have been in the Council Chambers for the meeting if it had occurred.However, the city staff needed to coordinate the meeting would have been in the building, according to Pasadena Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian.“Agenda items will more than likely roll over to May 24,” she said.McClain was a passenger in a car that was pulled over by police last August on North Raymond Avenue near La Pintoresca Park for failing to display a front license plate.After the driver and McClain were asked to step out of the car, McClain ran from officers. Police say McClain removed a handgun from his waistband as he fled, prompting Officer Edwin  Dumaguindin to open fire. McClain continued running a short distance before tossing a handgun across the street and collapsing, according to police.Some local residents say they don’t see a gun in body-worn camera footage of the incident. McClain family attorney Harper says flatly that McClain was not carrying a gun.Through their attorneys, McClain’s family members have argued that the shooting was unjustified.McClain’s DNA was recovered from a pistol that police seized at the scene, police investigators said. But family attorneys have questioned whether the gun may have been contaminated with McClain’s DNA, such as his blood, after the police shooting took place.

Building Not Keep Up With Inventory Needs

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Building Not Keep Up With Inventory Needs Sign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: building closes Housing Market Housing Starts labor shortage Metrostudy Vaike O’Grady In a survey from Metrostudy, Q3 2017 shows builders in Austin are starting more homes than they have in a decade, with 16.719 annual starts and up to 19.1 percent compared to the same time last year. It wasn’t since before the Great Recession that Austin had more than 16,000 annual starts; the peak of starts was 18,406 in Q3 of 2006.Compared to last quarter, starts are up 4 percent and 12.5 percent year-over-year, with 4,586 starts recorded by Metrostudy in the third quarter. Quarterly closings also rose, but not as much, with 4,107 closings in Q3 2017 compared to 3,592 last year. Annual closings pace had a 7.8 percent increase from 13,229 last year to 14,263 in Q3 2017.  Despite these increases, labor is experiencing a shortage, according to Vaike O’Grady, Regional Director of Metrostudy’s Austin housing market. “The impact of the recent Texas hurricane is likely to add to the challenge of finding qualified labor willing to perform development and construction work at a reasonable price. In a recent Metrostudy survey, more than 70% of respondents in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio said that Hurricane Harvey will affect their ability to find labor. Moreover, more than 85% of the respondents said that they expect that the hurricane will affect the price and availability of materials. That is tough news for a city that is struggling with how to provide housing for the ‘missing middle.’” Builders also reported tightened margins due to increased labor and materials costs, as well as permitting delays and added costs from municipal regulation. Regardless, developers are trying to add more supply. The summer of 2017 marked the first time that home sales reached over $1 billion for six straight months. “As in prior quarters, the fuel for the market is in in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range,” said O’Grady. “That segment generated 8,000 starts during the past 12 months, making up nearly half of the market. Starts outpaced closings across every price band. We are seeing more builders add “value” lines and smaller product in an effort to capture market share.”The full press release can be viewed here.    building closes Housing Market Housing Starts labor shortage Metrostudy Vaike O’Grady 2017-11-03 Dean Terrell The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Building Not Keep Up With Inventory Needs Previous: Fed Owns Nearly 30 Percent of All Outstanding MBS Next: Next Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago November 3, 2017 1,444 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post About Author: Dean Terrell The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more
