Your round-up of charity-related debate this week
Sir Stephen Bubb wonders what the Treasury was thinking with the Budget when it made the very sensible decision to cap tax allowances for the very rich but did not exempt Gift Aid and other charity donations from the cap.
The Budget means that the needs of the people charities try to serve will continue to grow, while the resources charities have from public sources will continue to diminish, says Dan Corry, chief executive of New Philanthropy Capital.
Charities must be trusted to protect data and use technology in the best way to support their donors and service users, says Dan Sutch, head of development research at the Nominet Trust.
Kirsty Kitchen, senior consultant at Amazon PR, explains how to use communications to prepare for, implement and cement charity mergers.
