  • 4 snippets of agency & supplier news

    first_img4 snippets of agency & supplier news The website has enabled the charity’s volunteers to bring in digital donations and diversify its fundraising efforts after it saw large reductions in in-person donations due to Covid-19. As a result, the charity was able to launch a specialist clothing shop through the website, helping to raise funds that will go towards a number of services such as virtual kitchens, befriending groups and in-person lessons – all aimed at helping refugees and asylum seekers integrate into society.  Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies A brief round up of agency and supplier news, from the launch of Agencies for Good, to the white-labelling of Be The Difference’s Philanthropy Advisory services. Community of tech for good agencies, consultancies and freelancers launches A new website implemented by The Access Group has enabled Refugee Roots to host an online shop for the first time, with its first cookbook selling out within three weeks. The cookbook, The Sharing Table, is now seeing demand for a second print-run. Advertisement To join, there is a form on the site to fill in, which will notify the Working Group, and see an invite sent out. Those already on board include freelancers and individuals working at places including We Are Open, Founders and Coders, AndGood, Outlandish, Agile Collective, and Snook, while the Working Group comprises Ellie Hale, Producer at CAST, James Gadsby Peet, Digital Director at William Joseph, Gem Hampson, MD at Hactar, Chris Ashworth, Head of Public Benefit at Nominet, Molly Gavriel, Partnerships Manager at The Developer Society, and Noam Sohachevsky, Founder of SIDE Labs. “Previously, our volunteers were manually adding information into the system and had to remember to update event times on a weekly basis. With this information now hosted in the cloud-based CRM system, event details are automatically updated on the website. The suite’s training modules also enable our volunteers to boost their skills so they’re better equipped to support our charity and our service users and to drive real change.” The implementation of the Access NFP Website Suite has also provided Refugee Roots with a CRM and solution which has significantly enhanced its user experience, saving volunteers vast amounts of admin time so they can focus on delivering quality fundraising campaigns.  The service can be bought in on an ‘as needs’ basis and is cost-neutral for the financial services provider. Melanie May | 11 June 2021 | News “As a charity, Keep Britain Tidy is a cost-conscious organisation so the savings in switching to the Cloud with Aqilla is a huge benefit. The most obvious advantage to their day-to-day operations is the increased efficiency they’re getting from Aqilla’s reporting. Where they were once spending an inordinate amount of time on mundane and manual processing, they can now focus on the details, accurate coding, and keeping costs in control.” “The pandemic has put many key dates in our fundraising calendars on hold, but our new website has allowed us to continue fundraising even when people were limited to staying at home. Being able to launch our own store has made a huge difference and is something we have been keen to implement for a long time, to reach a larger number of donors. According to Be The Difference, research shows that at the moment less than 20% of the UK’s wealth advisory and IFA firms offer philanthropy advice and the depth and breadth of the advice varies significantly, while on average the UK’s wealthy population gives a score of 5.9 out of 10 to the philanthropy advice experience they receive from their professional advisers.

  • Thumbs Up! Sierra Boggess & Julian Ovenden Lead an Enchanted Evening

    first_img Star Files The halls were alive with—oh, you know—on October 9, as Carnegie Hall welcomed Sierra Boggess and Julian Ovenden to the stage for the New York Pops’ opening night, My Favorite Things: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The set list from music director and conductor Steven Reineke was perfectly structured, with the 33rd season opener spoiling attendees with rich melodies, soaring voices and a chance to visit an entire iconic cannon in one night. Ovenden, who served as a last-minute replacement for Steven Pasquale, appeared unfazed and charming, his sultry tenor to “Edelweiss,” providing a sneak peek to what ITV audiences might expect later this year in the U.K.’s new live telecast of The Sound of Music. Boggess was just as entranced as the audience; during her performance of “A Wonderful Guy” from South Pacific, the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner glided across the stage in adoration, beaming at Reineke and the musicians between verses. During duets, their chemistry permeated the venue, and when the pair joined forces with the Essential Voices USA choir for “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” the impact was particularly powerful. All in all, the evening was a perfect start to the Pops’ 2015-16 season! View Commentscenter_img Sierra Boggesslast_img read more
