first_imgLegacy Foresight invites charities to join new research project Melanie May | 23 July 2020 | News Legacy Foresight is inviting charities to join its next In-memory Insight research project: Adapting to the in-memory landscape after the pandemic. The emphasis will be on the impact on the in-memory giving landscape over the next one to three years, on providing practical ideas about what to do next, and looking at the challenges and opportunities charities will face.The programme will start in autumn 2020, and will:Examine how in-memory supporters and fundraisers have adapted to the new environmentIdentify new trends likely to have lasting impact on remembrance and in-memory givingOutline what a charity’s role can be in providing opportunities to give as part of the grieving process and the implications for resources and supportReflect on what the experience teaches us about new ideas or new ways of connecting with in-memory donors in the futureDevelop ideas on longer-term trends, aiming to identify new forms of remembrance that may become part of the future in-memory landscape and new ways of connecting with tomorrow’s in-memory donorsSince the In-Memory Insight programme started ten years ago, over eighty charities and hospices have taken part.Tish Ley, In-Memory Engagement Manager at Guide Dogs, said:“Since Guide Dogs became a member of In-Memory Insight, our annual in-memory income has almost doubled. This is a direct result of implementing a new strategy and supporter journey, building on the lessons the research provided.”“In-Memory Insight provides a strong foundation for in-memory giving for all charities. It is a catalyst for larger charities to commit time and space to grow giving. Fundraisers at smaller charities can take away simple ideas, implement them and have an immediate impact.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Protests hit racist Rizzo statue

first_imgPhiladelphia protesters gathered June 5 in front of the fascist monument to racist former Mayor Frank Rizzo. They demanded present Mayor Jim Kenney fulfill his promise to tear down the statue and end the racist stop-and-frisk policy of Philadelphia police. Speakers from Philly for REAL Justice affirmed that police abolition is the only viable solution for ending the state’s terroristic violence against Black and Brown communities. These speakers stressed their demands for the city to redistribute the resources reserved for police, prisons and surveillance to community members and community programs. The rally was followed by a march against traffic, around City Hall. Participants chanted Assata ­Shakur’s words, which begin with the following sentence, to end the protest: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
