Legacy income reached highest ever level last year, Smee & Ford figures show

first_imgLegacy income reached highest ever level last year, Smee & Ford figures show Melanie May | 27 July 2018 | News  221 total views,  1 views today  222 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis59 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis59 Future potentialThe report also looks at the potential value for legacy income in the future. It calculates that as charitable estates were worth £17.9 billion in 2017, and legacy income was worth £2.8 billion, 15.6% of the net worth went to charities. By applying this percentage to the total estate values for estates that do not contain a gift to charity, it estimates that legacies could potentially be worth another £9.7 billion to the sector.In addition, using the total number of probated estates in 2017, if 2,304 (one per cent) of those people included a gift to charity in their Will, Smee & Ford estimate that this would have raised an additional £97 million for charities.The report also contains recommendations from Smee & Ford on how to optimise the impact of legacy marketing, and can be accessed via the Smee & Ford site.

Tagged with: legacies legacy fundraising Research / statistics Smee & Ford has released its Legacy Trends 2018 report, which shows legacy income to have reached its highest ever level last year, and is now estimated at between £2.8 and 2.9 billion.Legacy income grew by £37.8 million over the previous year according to Legacy Trends 2018, with 36,445 charitable estates in 2017. This is consistent with the number recorded in 2016 with the general longer-term trend an increase in the number of charitable estates according to Smee & Ford’s report.More key figuresCharitable estates were worth £17.9 billion in 2017, growing by over £1.8 billion over the year15.6% of the value of charitable estates (donor wealth) went to charities6.1% of the population leave a bequest in a Will122,144 bequests were contained in Wills in 2017 34.7% of charitable Wills contain just one charitable bequest and the most popular cause for sole bequests is places of worshipLegacy income has grown significantly in recent years, rising from £1.8bn in 2011/12 to £2.6 billion in 2016/17 among those organisations that have their financial year ends between July 2016 and June 2017.  As more charities release their financial accounts, Smee & Ford expects this figure to rise further. Some of this rise however, is due to an increased number of charities reporting legacy income: 1,679 organisations in 2007/08 compared to 2,579 organisations in 2016/17. Just over one in five charities receive legacy income, where the total income exceeds £500,000.Pecuniary bequests accounted for around 10% of total legacy income in 2017 and 90% came from residuals.Top charities for legacy incomeThe five charities that receive the most legacy income are: Cancer Research UK, RNLI, RSPCA, Macmillan Cancer Support, and British Heart Foundation, although there is a big variation in the amount, ranging from £186.6m in 2016/17 for Cancer Research UK, to £73.3m for British Heart Foundation. Annual legacy income for the top 25 organisations exceeds £1 billion.The top five for biggest yearly increases in legacy income were Macmillan (£12.9m more), RNLI (£12m), National Trust (£10.14m), Cancer Research UK (£8.8m), and The Woodland Trust (£7.74m).

Save the People’s Church!

first_imgBrockton, Mass. – A mobilizer’s meeting was held here on May 13 in to kick off the Campaign to Save Saint Martin de Porres Catholic Church of the Americas, the Peoples Church.The city of Brockton’s racist attack on the church takes place in the context of the tide of fascism and state aggression towards sanctuary spaces. This politically motivated aggression is targeting Bishop Filipe Teixeira, known affectionately as “Bishop T,” spiritual leader of the church and of the Cape Verdean Community.A statement by Bishop T, in three languages, states: “On April 19, 2017, after a nearly decade-long legal battle, Brockton Housing court ORDERED the demolition of our religious sanctuary within 60 days for the false, politically motivated, racist charge of failure to meet the building code/permit and safety issues. Brockton is seeking to silence an outspoken religious leader … [and] a well-known self-declared sanctuary congregation that is a pillar of support to Brockton’s immigrant community. …“Our wonderful people’s lawyer, John Pavlos, is now exploring all legal tactics. It was the people that built our church; we have faith that it will be the people, our congregation, with solidarity from all of our supporters, who will defend our church now!”The Bishop has been a friend of Workers World Party for decades. The alliance has been a two-way street; members of WWP helped build his church from the ground up. WWP’s Boston branch held a significant presence at the meeting. Veteran party members, young candidates, and friends of the party came in full force to plan further action.He has been a strong ally to every oppressed population he encounters. As a person of faith, Bishop T believes that having a moral compass means that it is wrong to be silent in the face of injustice. He sees his vocation as a compelling force. He has marched against expressions of racism, sexism, anti-LGBTQ bigotry, xenophobia, and the exploitation of workers on local and international levels.As someone who has been physically and emotionally attacked by systemic forces for decades, he is an example of courage in his handling of the latest barrage of state forces: an attempted closure and demolition of his church.The city’s mayor has expressed hostility towards the Bishop’s bold, public decision to protect undocumented immigrants in his church. He is non-negotiably in solidarity with Brockton’s immigrant communities.Brockton is not a sanctuary city. The survival of this sanctuary church is critical.Speakers at the meeting reflected the broad base of Bishop T’s support and alliances born of struggle. Andre Francois, President of USW 8751, Boston’s School Bus Drivers’ Union, lead a delegation of leaders that brought solidarity and pledged the resources of his majority-migrant union for the fight. Ruy Ley-Wild, of Cosecha and an organizer of May 1st, gave a struggle history of Saint Martin and vowed support. Teresa Gutierrez, representing the WWP Secretariat of WWP gave a moving tribute to Bishop T and promised 100 percent solidarity in action. Solidarity was strong as people bonded, ate, and listened to the Bishop and his congregants.Bishop T was clearly strengthened by the support he received, including a recent national call-in day to demand the city keep its hands of the church. The event concluded with activists orchestrating a citywide canvass at local businesses. The supporters vowed to fight until the city retracts its push for demolition, and to not stop until Bishop T is exonerated and the church is saved!To join this battle, follow Bishop T on Facebook or contact him via email at bi[email protected]eShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Durham, N.C.: Klan in no-show after mass resistance

first_imgA planned march by the Ku Klux Klan was shut down on Friday, Aug. 18, in Durham, N.C., by a tremendous and thoroughly multinational outpouring of the community. Upwards of 1,000 people gathered downtown after the news of the KKK’s planned march broke earlier that morning.On Aug. 14, a demonstration in solidarity with Charlottesville, Va., and against white supremacy had heroically toppled a Confederate monument in Durham. Several of the participants were later arrested. The Klan then announced they would march at the site where the monument once stood.But because of the solidarity and overwhelming response from the community, the Klan never showed.Friday’s demonstration had the character of an uprising. For nearly seven hours, people held the streets at the site of the toppled monument. They later marched to the jail and faced off with riot cops. People burned Confederate flags, redecorated the former monument with messages such as “Death to the Klan,” and danced and celebrated this momentous victory.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

SDS launches new financial literacy program

The program is a partnership between SDS, the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Admission.OMR focuses on three areas:Mastering the basics, which includes savings and budgeting.Developing your skills, which includes insurance and credit bureau.Considering the future, which includes investment and real estate.SDS is providing online resources, in-class facilitations and programming. The financial aid office and the admission office are providing financial support.“We think that students who graduate with more financial knowledge are going to be more successful at managing their funds and debt,” assistant director of financial aid Melet Leafgreen said. “Students will know how to pay off their loans.”Leafgreen said that 6,280 undergraduate students are receiving some financial aid to attend TCU.The assistant director of the sophomore and junior year experience Rachael Capua said there are “one million reasons” why students should learn about financial well-being.“OMR came about because it’s so much more than right now,” Capua said. “It’s so much more than financial health. It impacts you emotionally, professionally, spiritually and personally.”Chelsea Alexander, who is a TCU alumna and a senior financial adviser for Merrill Lynch, said the program will help students learn the jargon of finance and how to use those concepts properly.“We live in a world of finance, and we need to know the rules of the game if we’re going to play,” Alexander said.OMR ambassadors are students that represent their assigned colleges. They act as a link between the OMR program and the students of TCU.Senior child development major and an OMR ambassador for the College of Science and Engineering Logan Skoog said she thinks students should focus on the financial demands of today.“I think we get stuck with thinking about retirement and future kid’s college funds when someone says ‘finance,’” Skoog said. “Making it more connected to the students and what they’re doing is more effective than planning for future kid’s college funds. Students need to know how to save for their spring break trip and where those finances are coming from.”Kat Edmond, a senior communications major and an OMR ambassador for the Bob Schieffer College of Communication, agreed.“It’s important for everyone to learn as students first so they know how to be adults and handle their finances wisely,” Edmond said. “It’ll help students learn how to spend, save and give wisely.”Faculty or staff can request a lesson for classrooms or organizations by emailing [email protected] The “One Million Reasons” team facilitated a workshop on Sept. 28.

Police storm opposition media outlets four days ahead of elections

first_img October 28, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police storm opposition media outlets four days ahead of elections Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News Organisation April 2, 2021 Find out more (Photos: Usame Ari / Zaman Daily / AFP) TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Follow the news on Turkey to go further Help by sharing this information RSF_en Receive email alerts Update: After the police had taken control of the Ipek Media Group building, government-appointed administrators suspended broadcasting by Bugün TV and Kanaltürk and suspended publication of the dailies Bugün and Millet. They also fired Bugün TV news editor Tarik Toros and Bugün editor Erhan Basyurt. At least six journalists were manhandled and briefly detained during the operation.——-Reporters Without Borders condemns an all-out government offensive against a media group whose parent company, Koza Ipek Holding, is owned by an ally of Fethullah Gülen, an influential Muslim preacher who once backed President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and is now one of his bitterest rivals and enemies.Police stormed the Ipek Media Group’s headquarters in Istanbul at dawn today, disconnecting the signal of one of its TV stations, Kanaltürk, and trying to cut the signal of another, Bugün TV.With just days to go to key parliamentary elections on 1 November, the government has been stepping up its harassment of opposition media and companies including Koza Ipek Holding, which owns a total of 21 companies including the Ipek Media Group’s three TV stations (Bugün TV, Kanaltürk and Samanyolu Haber) and two dailies (Bugün and Millet).Violent police raidToday’s raid began at around 4:30 a.m., when riot police took up position outside Ipek Media Group headquarters in the Istanbul district of Mecidiyeköy. Three hours later, they broke down the outer gates and used teargas and water cannons against the hundreds of demonstrators and journalists trying to block their way.Today’s Zaman editor Bülent Kenes, who had gone there in a show of solidarity with the Ipek Media Group, was roughed up and Kamil Maman, a Bugün reporter, was briefly detained.Shortly after 9 a.m., the police ripped out the cables of TV cameras at the scene in an attempt to interrupt live coverage of the operation. They then disconnected the Kanaltürk signal and tried to do the same with Bugün’s but news director Tarik Toros refused to cooperate and journalists blocked their access to its control centre.“The persecution of critical media outlets has reached an extremely worrying level before the elections,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia Desk.“The government’s determination to silence the Ipek Media Group’s outlets is just the latest example. We again call on the authorities to end this persecution and to allow the media to do their work in accordance with Turkey’s constitution and its international obligations.”Under government controlThe raid came two days after a controversial court order placing Koza Ipek Holding under government control as part of a judicial investigation into alleged “terrorism funding and propaganda.”The “terrorist organization” that the holding allegedly assisted is none other than the movement founded by Fethullah Gülen, which is now outlawed. Most of the temporary administrators appointed by the court to replace the holding’s board of governors are members or supporters of the ruling AKP party.Koza Ipek Holding has been at the centre of a storm for months. Its headquarters were raided twice, in August and September, and then an arrest warrant was issued for the chairman of its board, Hamdi Akin Ipek. “If we had agreed to be part of the pro-government] media pool, things would not have turned out as they have,” he said on 25 October.Bugün TV, Kanaltürk and Samanyolu Haber were among the seven TV stations that [were dropped by the main cable and satellite TV operators in mid-October in response to a court order.Turkey is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Reporters Without Borders took part in a joint field visit with seven other international and local NGOs from 19 to 21 October to emphasize the gravity of the situation.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTWENTY-FOUR local and European election candidates gathered at the Doras office in Limerick City centre to publicly denounce racism by signing the Anti-Racism Election Protocol 2019.Seán McSweeney, Doras CEO told the Limerick Post they were “delighted” with the number of candidates that turned up to the event, and foundation “really appreciated their support”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Doras Luimní is a member of European Network Against Racism (ENAR) Ireland; the Anti-Racism Election Protocol was relaunched in April for the upcoming local and European elections.“It’s asking all the election candidates to sign up and endorse it, to agree not to use any words or images when they’re promoting their election candidacy that would either reinforce stereotypes, or be racist, or discriminatory in nature,” said Seán McSweeneySpeaking about the candidates that attended the event, McSweeney described there being a positive reaction from the candidates “especially in light of recent incidents”, referring to a racist video recorded on a Limerick street which appeared online earlier in April.The Limerick Post asked the Doras CEO if he thinks candidates will have a chance to combat racism on the doorstep while canvassing:“I don’t reckon, I for a fact know, one of the candidates just told me that he did encounter some racism on the doorstep. A particular person who was being quite racist, he confronted them and said he wasn’t  willing to listen to that, it was racist, and he completely condemned what they were saying.”Mr McSweeney told the Post racism “has to be confronted”:“I think sometimes people feel they can just say these types of racist comments about people, and nobody will stand up to them, and that it’s almost ‘okay’ to say these things, and that gives them permission, and encourages them to use this racist type of language.“So we all have a responsibility to confront that when we come across it and say it is not acceptable, it is completely discriminatory, and you’re not going to tolerate it.”Doras continues to encourage both Local and European Election candidates to sign the Protocol to renew their commitment to anti-racism prior to this year’s elections on May 24.

Bond Trading, however, was worse than projected with a 27 percent drop.The bank reported $6.7 billion in net income, which is $1.76 a share, $0.10 over the $1.65 consensus. Mortgage banking revenue was down 17 percent to 1.6 billion for Q3, attributed to lower net servicing revenue, loan spread compression, and more moderate production margins.“JPMorgan Chase delivered solid results in a competitive environment this quarter with steady core growth across the platform,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase. “And for the first time, the Firm led the nation in total U.S. deposits, as consumers and businesses continue to view us as their partner of choice.”Noninterest expense in consumer and community banking was $6.5 billion, which is flat compared to 2016. According to the report, the prior year included two items totaling $175 million related to liabilities from a merchant in bankruptcy and mortgage servicing reserves. If the company were to exclude those two factors, noninterest would have been up 3 percent, driven by higher auto lease depreciation and business growth, partially offset by lower marketing expense.The provision for credit card losses, which was $1.5 billion (an increase of $223 million), was driven by higher net charge-offs, due to card, but offset by Mortgage and a higher reserve build in card.“The global economy continues to do well and the U.S. consumer remains healthy with solid wage growth,” Dimon said. “Unfortunately, natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad have impacted many of our customers and we have responded with enormous financial support as well as the expertise and generosity of our employees to help these customers, clients and communities.”Dimon added that JPMorgan Chase is building on its success in Detroit by announcing new initiatives in Chicago and Washington, D.C., to drive inclusive economic growth in those communities.“We will be there to do our part,” Dimon said.last_img read more
