FUNDRAISING NEWS: Innovative internet usage recognised with cash awards

Charities and not-for-profit groups which use the internet to help manage their organisation can win up to £30,000 through a government-backed awards scheme.

The E-Commerce Awards is an annual joint initiative between UK online for business - the partnership between the Government and the e-commerce industry - and InterForum, a not-for-profit company which helps organisations conduct their business online.

Charities can nominate themselves for the Voluntary and Community category which is sponsored by the Active Community Unit. To compete, organisations must demonstrate progressive and innovative online work.

The overall category winner will receive £30,000 with prizes due to be announced at a gala dinner in London later this year. The awards scheme is open to any organisation with up to 250 employees and will distribute £182,000 in cash prizes.
