Money matters - Helen Warrell's round-up of what's happening in the finance world

Futurebuilders England, New Philanthropy Capital, and the Charity Commission.

 - Futurebuilders England has announced its first investment since the Adventure Capital Fund took over its management. The £1.4m award - the fund's 300th investment since it was launched in 2004 - goes to Essex-based arts education charity Theatre Resource, which works on drama activities with disabled and disadvantaged people. The charity will use the funds to turn its current building into a new national centre for disability arts and social inclusion.

- New Philanthropy Capital will test-drive its new social impact-measurement model at a seminar on 21 May. The event is being hosted by accounting firm Sayer Vincent as part of its adaptive performance management forum for senior managers. See www.sayervincent.co.uk.

- Shine, a peer-organised 'un-conference' for social entrepreneurs, will be held on London's South Bank from 9 to 11 May. The event is organised online on an open-source basis so that any attendee can contribute a session and suggest ideas for discussion. Social enterprise support charity UnLtd has already pledged £5,000 for a live pitching event. See www.shineunconference.com.

- The charities team at accounting firm PKF has been appointed as internal auditor to the Charity Commission. The firm, which submitted its tender in January, will report directly to the watchdog's chief executive and accounting officer Andrew Hind, who says he wants to keep an eye on the commission's changing risk profile.
