Face-to-face fundraising is “recession-proof technique”, IFC delegates told Howard Lake | 21 October 2015 | News Recruiting regular donors through face-to-face fundraising can help charities maintain and even increase income during times of economic difficulty, delegates at the International Fundraising Congress heard today.Daryl Upsall and David Cravinho presented the first of a two-day masterclass on face-to-face fundraising at this week’s IFC in Holland, run by the Resource Alliance.David Cravinho, head of regular giving at Unicef Switzerland, said:“Face-to-face fundraising is recession free – data from across Europe and South America shows this to be true. This is because it is about one human connecting with another, and in times of economic difficulty people recognise that others suffer and so want to help them.”David Cravinho of Unicef Switzerland at the face-to-face masterclass at IFC 2015.Daryl Upsall, of Daryl Upsall Consulting International, added: Advertisement 88 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Retention challengesUpsall, who has more than 30 years experience managing fundraising, communications and advocacy operations in more than 60 countries, accepted that retention of donors recruited via face-to-face channels can be challenging. He said:“Some organisations have very high attrition rates. However, attrition is going down for those organisations that apply the best retention practices”.He and Cravinho, who oversees all of Unicef’s regular giving in over 40 countries, were joined at this point by guest speaker Rupert Tappin of Decaid Consulting. He presented his top ten tips for effective retention of donors recruited via face-to-face fundraising:1. Effective fundraising management: clean data, well-managed teams, realistic expectations, the courage to innovate and a willingness to question everything are essential.2. Don’t neglect payment reconciliation. The back-end donor processing facilities are really important. Lots of donors can be lost due to payments not being properly collected by the charity. Equally, the quicker the first payment is collected, the lower the attrition rate.3. Choose a great agency. Work closely with them as a genuine partnership and hold each other accountable for what has been promised.4. Think about your recruitment channel and payment method: understand the metrics and most effective comparisons to make. Not all campaigns are the same and will provide different results.5. Plan the donor journey: what you will send to whom and when – including those who cancel their gift. Listen to your donors – give them the opportunity to upgrade or downgrade their donation, or give them a donation holiday.6. Communicate with the donor in the way that suits them best – not what suits you best (i.e. the cheapest option). Keep their needs at the forefront of your mind.7. Consider short-term gain v long-term pain: the best long-term donor isn’t necessarily the cheapest. Consider cost per recruit with return on investment.8. Match reality with what is planned: break the obsession with a one year cycle – the success of regular giving should be determined by performance over five years and longer.9. Tell the story: Build up the donor’s knowledge of the cause and continue the story that they were recruited on to help retain the donor and strengthen their loyalty to your cause.10: Break down internal silos, particularly between the finance and database teams. Internal knowledge and understanding of F2F is critical for effective continuity of donor relationship. “Contrary to popular opinion, a recession is absolutely the time to approach your board for more investment. The biggest non-profits in Spain have grown enormously since the recession, recruiting many thousands of new supporters through face-to-face.”Members of the audience shared similar experiences. A delegate from Australia said they had found the recession helpful for recruiting fundraisers as well as donors. When the national job market is difficult, it means there is a higher calibre of people willing and able to work as fundraisers, they said – adding that “the more intelligent a conversation fundraisers have with donors means the stronger the relationship the charity can have with that individual”.

Paul RobesonIf Paul Robeson were alive today, he’d be toasting and defending people’s hero Ramsey Orta (who filmed the police killing of Eric Garner) and roundly condemning the rigged-grand-jury decisions, escape hatching the police murderers of Garner, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown, in particular, and the countless other ones that indignantly join them.Robeson would also point to the oppressive machinery of the state as being ultimately responsible for this continued outrage against the most vulnerable populations in society, easily determining that this practice is totally unacceptable!And he’d heartily salute the valiant folks of Ferguson, Mo., especially the youth, for refusing to be intimidated by the contorted face of militarily armed and trained police, National Guard and intelligence personnel, dispatched to contain livid community residents and their supporters.The state’s response to a crisis they created was to “send in the troops,” like they’ve done in Iraq and elsewhere, over its sordid imperial history, thus earning the indigenous people’s enmity and contempt by their mere presence as invaders and occupiers. Ferguson is a first cousin to Detroit 1967 — in a whole lot of ways!Honoring the memory of Paul Robeson is no ceremonial gesture. Why? As a highly recognized and accomplished artist on many levels, he helped set a riveting standard about what creative people are “obligated” to do — if they are “organically” joined to progressive needs of humankind — and, that is, to “fight for freedom or slavery.” Paul Robeson devoted his life to humanity’s highest ideals in the most extraordinary ways. Few rival his fields of significance.The essence of who this gentle giant really was is in his classic work, “Here I Stand,” issued by Beacon Press in 1958. This rugged Rutgers alumni clearly states his own case, partially seasoned by the hostile atmosphere he endured as a member of the school’s football team and as a “rare” student on campus.In spite of tremendous pressure, Robeson distinguished himself as a student and as a human being in ways that are still marveled. Gil Noble, the late host of the New York-based ABC show, “Like It Is,” did an exceptional documentary on him entitled “The Tallest Tree in the Forest” in 1977. Noble did another outstanding one about Robeson around 1999, also called “Here I Stand.”Both provide fitting tributes to an extraordinary artist who’d been deeply influenced by his dad and the historic period in which he grew up and greatly influenced.Accolades and descriptions of his noted accomplishments are too voluminous to detail here, but we include some highlights that undergird his designation as a “Renaissance man,” who without hesitation offered his skills and talents in loyal service to the delight, liberation and advancement of people, in the millions, around the planet. The decades between the 1920s and early 1960s reflect his greatest works.Never forgot his roots in the working classAs one of Harlem’s own, Robeson was a central and unavoidable figure in its glorious Renaissance. His connections to Langston Hughes, Hubert Harrison, Lena Horne, Arturo Alfonso Schomberg, Nicolás Guillén, Pablo Neruda and Tony Benn modestly point to the magnitude of people he knew and interacted with, including countless ordinary folk who rightly and proudly claim they knew him, too.He and his spouse, Eslanda Goode Robeson, went to Spain in the 1930s to help boost the morale of U.S. volunteers in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade fighting with anti-fascist forces against Francisco Franco, who saw the world through Hitler’s eyes.Robeson generously supported the coal miners in their march for better wages and working conditions in Wales and Scotland. His roots lay deep with the common folk of his ancestry and with those around the world.Once you heard his organically melodious baritone voice, in any language, you were never the same. Standing-room-only throngs flooded his guest appearances in the Soviet Union in particular.And when J. Edgar Hoover and Joe McCarthy tried to intimidate him during the anti-communist witchhunt in the 1950s, Robeson told them in effect “to speak to the hand.” The State Department took away his passport and encouraged promoters to cancel their contracts with Robeson. Yet his voice still reached Canada and England through the benefits of the technology of the time! With great dignity and determination he refused to bow to government pressure.And Paul Robeson never backed away from his love and support of the Soviet people, expressing his open admiration for their stunning defeats of Hitler’s armies at Leningrad and Stalingrad during World War II and elsewhere.Robeson respected the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro and collaborated with Albert Einstein, progressive groups and individuals to combat lynchings, racism and other forms of oppression in the United States and around the world. He even did a benefit concert for Japanese Americans rounded up and forced into internment camps during World War II. He never abandoned the notion that “An artist [in whatever genre] must elect to fight for freedom or slavery.” (“The Whole World in His Hands,” Susan Robeson, 1981)He lived by uncompromising example.In a nutshell, Paul Robeson urged the people to use their talents, whatever they are, in service to humanity. Think he had it right.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

In his remarks to the closing General Session, the President said he is working on a NAFTA agreement that is fair for U.S. agriculture, “On NAFTA, I am working very hard to get a better deal for our farmers and ranchers and for our manufacturers.” He added the negotiations, which are underway, are difficult. He also pledged to review all U.S. trade agreements, “To make sure they are fair and reciprocal.”Mr. Trump got a standing ovation when he talked about the elimination of the estate tax in the just passed tax reform measure, “From now on, most family farms and small business owners will be spared from the punishment of the deeply unfair estate tax. Now you can keep your farms in the family.”The President also promised to continue his efforts to cut regulations including the WOTUS. “For years, many of you have endured burdensome fines and regulations from a variety of government agencies, including the EPA and the FDA,” he stated. “The attack on your way of life has ended.” Mr. Trump said, for every new federal regulation put in place, 22 have been eliminated since he took office.In an obvious reference to upcoming mid-term elections, the President said, if democrats regain power, they will raise taxes and reimpose federal regulations against farmers. Mr. Trump pledged to stop chain migration, the immigration lottery system, and renewed his pledge to “build the wall.” He did not mention, however, any provision for a guest worker program or a way to provide a legal labor force for agriculture. The President also voiced strong support for a new Farm Bill that contains funding for Crop Insurance.After his remarks, Mr. Trump signed two executive orders to improve broadband coverage in rural areas. The executive orders will expedite requests to locate broadband facilities in rural areas and streamline the process of establishing cell towers on federal lands.
