Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Personally I think one of the best ways to support veterans in 2017 is to help our older veterans. For instance there is a little known Aid and Attendance pension benefit that helps senior veterans and their spouses pay for costs of care like assisted living, nursing home, home care, etc.The best resource I found for this information is http://www.VeteranAid.org.

It’s our nation’s duty to support veterans once they return home.”The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reports that 20 percent of veterans who served since 9/11 are estimated to have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Twenty veterans take their lives every day, most of whom never seek help from the VA, and many veterans struggle to find employment, often leading to homelessness.To help change the lives of countless veterans and their families, DAV has suggested three priorities for our country’s leaders in 2017:* Ensure veterans have access to quality and timely health care, including effective mental health services. Changes in the health care system for veterans are critical according to leading veterans service organizations like DAV and VFW, as well as bipartisan leaders in Congress. They all agree the best path forward is to create local, high-performing health care networks, led by the VA, which combine the best of VA with the best of community care.* Give needed benefits to the caregivers of veterans. While caregivers for veterans who served after 9/11 receive benefits and resources, caregivers of veterans who served in earlier conflicts, such as World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam, do not receive them. This law must be amended and made inclusive.* Educate employers about the value of hiring veterans, particularly those with disabilities. A recent survey of employers released by DAV, Monster.com and Military.com reveals 30 percent of employers worry about hiring veterans with PTSD. However, the vast majority of employers who have hired veterans with disabilities report it’s been a positive and productive experience.You can support U.S. veterans.You can be a positive voice for veterans and support changes in your communities. Start by speaking up on important veteran issues and write your elected officials in Congress. Volunteer with your local VA hospital or drive veterans to medical appointments. And, if you own a business or are a hiring manager, be sure your organization considers veterans’ unique talents and strengths.America made a promise to care for its veterans, those men and women who sacrificed for everyone’s freedoms. Now the nation’s leaders must live up to that promise. For more information about important veteran issues and how you can help, visit www.dav.org.

“This research brilliantly illustrates crowdfunding’s wider social impact. Its findings align with Crowdfunder’s mission to tackle societal challenges through making ideas happen. The UK grant market is worth £5.6 billion and this report suggests that if this money was distributed via crowdfunding, the impact could be significantly amplified, both in terms of unlocking additional funds and building skills and non financial support from the community.” Tagged with: crowdfunding match funding matched giving AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Matched crowdfunding has great potential for generating income as well as new networks of supporters for UK arts and heritage organisations, a report from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport DCMS, Nesta, Arts Council England, and Heritage Lottery Fund shows.Seeking evidence of the financial and non-financial impacts of matched crowdfunding in the arts and heritage sectors, DCMS, Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and Nesta ran a nine-month pilot programme through Crowdfunder, providing £251,500 in match funding for crowdfunded projects.The pilot funded 59 arts and heritage projects with popular projects including immersive opera in South London, to the restoration of the Royal Research Ship Discovery, in Dundee. The report, Matching the Crowd – combining crowdfunding and institutional funding to get great ideas off the ground, including surveys of backers and project owners, alongside analysis of crowdfunding platform data, reveals the results.According to the report, the programme showed that matched crowdfunding could encourage additional money into the arts and heritage sectors, with the £251,500 provided by Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund helping to leverage £405,941 from 4,970 backers. The offer of a match also boosted the average size of contributions by 17 per cent (from £63 to £74), making projects more likely to reach their funding target.Another key finding was matched crowdfunding’s ability to help arts and heritage organisations reach new supporters. As many as 86% of backers had not previously supported those organisations financially, and 20% had never backed a project in the arts and heritage sector. For 78% of the crowd, the money they gave to the projects was in addition to what they would usually donate to charitable or philanthropic causes.Beyond raising money, 85% of organisations running crowdfunding campaigns inspired the crowd to offer non-financial help, with backers providing feedback/advice to 38% of projects. One arts project supporter recommended an artist to local festival promoters, left positive comments on the artist’s profile, and also shared the campaign online. A heritage project supporter also offered to run community workshops for a project for free.In addition, the connections formed by organisations during the programme have also led to ongoing support. For instance, 45% of projects discovered new partners or collaborators, 42% received offers of volunteering support, and 64% gained further supporters for their project after crowdfunding.Hasan Bakhshi, Executive Director, Creative Economy and Data Analytics at Nesta, said:“Nesta has been tracking the crowdfunding sector since 2010, including the growing involvement of institutional funders. This pilot programme has given us unique quantitative evidence that arts and heritage funders can make public money work harder by matched funding.”Phil Geraghty, CEO of Crowdfunder added: Advertisement Matched crowdfunding can generate new support for arts & heritage organisations, says report About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

For example, the House of Lords Committee made strong points on the need for the government to do more to ensure full costs of delivering services are covered so that charities can be sustainable, but the government has seemingly avoided the issue. Putting pressure on other government agencies to do more on core costs is one of the biggest single things that the Office for Civil Society could do.“A lot of decisions are also deferred to the Civil Society Strategy, so it is appears that this strategy will now carry a significant amount of the hopes and fears in the sector. We will all need to engage with it closely and ensure that the recommendations in the report are not lost.”The full response document is available to be read and downloaded. 129 total views, 1 views today DCMS has published its response to the House of Lords Committee on Charities’ report, Stronger Charities for a Stronger Society.In her foreword, Minister for Sport & Civil Society Tracey Crouch said she welcomed the report, published in March, and wanted to ‘not only present a positive response but in doing so send a strong positive message about government’s vision for its work with and for civil society.’ She also references the Civil Society Strategy and the Government’s plans to use it to work together with charities ‘to bring about a step change in the potential of civil society in tackling some of the most important and difficult social challenges’.In the 20-page document, DCMS sets out each of the report’s 43 recommendations and its response to them. It agrees broadly with most of the points made around governance and support for charities, including smaller charities, and states that they will feed into the new Civil Society Strategy. This strategy is referred to throughout the document, which also makes reference in its responses to the new grants standard, as well as to a number of other regulations and initiatives already in place.However, in response to the Committee’s call for a consultation on a statutory duty for employers to give people time off to be a trustee, it said that while it would continue to encourage employers to support employees who have charity trustee roles, there were currently no plans to consult on the matter.In response to the report’s recommendations on helping smaller charities in particular to deliver public services and its calls for the Government to consider grant funding, as well as the impact of Payment by Results contracts on charities, the Government answered that ‘payment by results contracts and social impact bonds can support innovative solutions to address some of the biggest social issues of our time.’It also said that the appointment of a new Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector Crown Representative is expected in due course, and a big part of their role would be addressing barriers and technical issues for charities.In addition, DCMS said in the document that it was committed to the Compact, which guarantees charities fair funding and the right to speak out on behalf of their beneficiaries, stating that central Government continues to follow its principles with the Civil Society Strategy an important opportunity to consider how partnerships between sectors and local communities could be improved to build a stronger and fairer society for all.Industry feedback on DCMS’s response expressed disappointment however that little new action was promised and that few of the report’s recommendations received clear answers.Dan Corry, Chief Executive of NPC, commented on the response, saying:“Warm words are not enough to support the charity sector to deliver the impact so desperately needed. Given the lack of action in this response, it is a mystery as to why it has taken more than half a year.“It is strange to see so much weight placed on the new grants standard, which many in the sector have complained is not being followed with the Tampon Tax.“The sector was excited when Tracey Crouch became charities minister. Now we need to see what she can deliver. The pressure is really on the new Civil Society strategy. Charities can’t afford another missed opportunity.”Andrew O’Brien, Director of Policy and Engagement, Charity Finance Group also commented.

We are so proud to have helped them complete their studies in the face of this pandemic.”When festivities start at 9 a.m., student vehicles will enter campus from Del Mar Boulevard. They will snake their way through PCC’s parking lots, past its career education programs and the Veterans Resource Center, alongside the swimming pool, past Lancers Pass and live student music and dance groups, through the Quad, and ultimately pause for an unforgettable photo op in front of the iconic Horace Mann Building facing Colorado Boulevard. Faculty, staff, and well-wishers will line the route cheering and celebrating the students’ achievements.The event will adhere to COVID-19 regulations and public safety guidelines.PCC encourages every member of the community to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, but is not requiring vaccinations. Therefore, masks covering the nose and mouth must be worn during any time car windows are open.Pre-registration for the ceremony ended May 24, and no drive-up participants will be allowed. Participants are limited to one car of family or friends, and all visitors must remain seated throughout the duration of the parade.The event will be livestreamed at youtube.com/pcclancer or directly at this link.
