Monday 28 February 2011 8:17 pm CHICAGO’S purchasing managers’ index (PMI) reached a 22-year high in February, surprising economists and boding well for today’s US-wide manufacturing results.The PMI hit 71.2 this month, driven upwards by growth in production and new orders, which reached their highest level – 75.9 – since 1983.All index scores above 50 indicate economic expansion.“This strong report indicates continued improvement in the pace of Chicago-area business expansion, and supports our above-consensus forecast of 61.5 for the February ISM manufacturing index,” concluded Nicholas Tenev of Barclays Capital.The ISM index is released this morning.There was further good news for the US recovery yesterday, as consumer spending edged up 0.2 per cent in January – the seventh straight month of gains, according to official data from the Commerce Department.The increase was below the expectations of economists, yet continued to grow following an upwardly revised 0.5 per cent rise in spending in December.Meanwhile, US incomes jumped by one per cent in January, the largest increase since May 2009, after an upturn of 0.4 per cent in December.And savings jumped to $677.1bn (£417.5bn) in January, the highest level since August, from $620.9bn in December.The surge in incomes, well above consensus expectations of a 0.4 per cent rise, reflected the boost from unemployment insurance tax relief, according to Barclays Capital.“Spending was soft, we expected that after the soft January retail sales report,” added Sean Incremona, an economist at 4Cast in New York.“Income was surprisingly very strong, there was probably some sort of flattering effects from payroll or tax cuts or some sort of effect from the changeover from the new year,” Incremona said.The report also showed the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of consumer inflation — the personal consumption expenditures price index, excluding food and energy — edged up 0.1 per cent last month, after being unchanged in December.However, there was more doom for the ailing US housing market, as contracts for pending sales of previously owned homes fell faster than expected in January to the slowest pace in three months, data from a real estate trade group showed yesterday.

New software tool to help small charities move beyond spreadsheets for fundraising About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 21 May 2013 | News Bee Software, part of the Blue Tree Fundraising agency, has created Funded, a new software product for smaller charities to help them with their fundraising.The system will allow charities to log their donor records, add contacts, search data by geography and cause, write appeal letters, record correspondence and produce reports. It has also been “written with non-technical users in mind”.Matthew Adam, one of the directors of the company, said: “Some time ago we noticed that many small charities required a low-cost system to track all of the appeals they made throughout the year as well as analysing their data in a better way. Advertisement “However there were only expensive software systems available that did far more than was needed, so most just relied on Excel spreadsheets, which can be inadequate as you grow.”He added: “The small guys need as much help as the bigger guys but sometimes this part of the market-place is forgotten or has low-quality products. We are trying to rectify that!” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 18 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis
The Inspiring Impact programme launches a new website today (15 April), with a suite of free how-to guides and self-assessment tools for small and medium charities to help them understand and increase their impact. The Inspiring Impact site has been made possible through National Lottery funding. It combines Inspiring Impact resources with those of the Impact Management Programme following their merger in August 2018, and will hold resources from across the sector, from research reports and diagnostic tools, to outcomes frameworks and surveys.The tools and resources have been co-designed with 200 charities and social enterprises, to make the support responsive and relevant to organisations trying to improve their work with limited resources. This includes the Data Diagnostic, a five-minute questionnaire that provides tailored recommendations about what data to collect, which has already been used by over 600 people to review their data collection methods. Over 110,000 people have used these resources already and by consolidating them in one place it is hoped that they will be accessible to more charities.The website is particularly aimed at small or medium charities without dedicated impact management staff and the content aims to help individuals to identify the practical steps people can take to improve their practice.The Inspiring Impact programme has been running since 2012. It is funded by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, City Bridge Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund. So far it has supported over 70,000 charities with over £1m funding to achieve good impact practice.Judith Rankin, Development & Delivery Manager, Sported, said:“Inspiring Impact’s network, support and resources have massively helped to develop both Sported’s own impact practice and that of our members. Our staff team have benefitted from the opportunity for peer-learning with other Inspiring Impact Champions across the UK, and many of our member groups have utilised the Measuring Up assessment tool which provides an excellent framework to identify priority areas. We look forward to exploring the new website and resources to build upon our work developing the evidence base for the Sport for Development sector.”Joe Ferns, UK Funding Director at The National Lottery Community Fund, said: Advertisement 255 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28 Tagged with: impact Melanie May | 15 April 2019 | News “Thanks to National Lottery players more community organisations and charities will be able to better plan, measure and improve their impact with Inspiring Impact’s new website and tools.

The LARFB partnered with Whole Foods Market and Foothill Unity Center in a special holiday turkey distribution Tuesday morning that gave 100 deserving families a celebratory turkey to take home for Thanksgiving to commemorate this epic milestone.“This month we are distributing what’s equivalent to our one billionth meal to the community,” said Los Angeles Regional Food Bank CEO Michael Flood.According to Flood, these numbers are calculated by the USDA which says that a standard meal is measured at 1.2 pounds and the LARFD was able to distribute 1.2 billion pounds of food to the communities in L.A. County.“This Pasadena center serves all of the families in the local area. Foothill Unity Center is a part of that billionth meal and we are just honored to be able to kick off and launch this celebration,” said Foothill Unity Center Executive Director Betty McWilliams.Foothill Unity Center was founded in 1980 and offers food, temporary shelter, case management, transportation, referrals and a variety of health services for low-income and homeless people in eleven communities in Los Angeles County.“It’s especially important that as we mark the beginning of November that we are trying to do something extra for the families and individuals that we serve during this holiday season,” said Flood.Whole Foods Market provided 100 turkeys weighing in at a hefty 15 pounds for families to go home with this holiday season.“We’re just so happy to be here today. we love our partners, we love Foothill Unity Center and L.A. Regional Food Bank and we just think that a billion meals is such a celebration and its something that we are so proud to be a part of, “ said Whole Foods Metro Marketing Team Leader Sarah Roberts.The LARFB serves more than 600 other non-profits throughout L.A. County on a year round basis, according to Flood.“It’s especially significant to be here because the food bank was founded here in Pasadena in 1973,” said Flood.These services including providing groceries to families and individuals, meals to the homeless population, and food packages for seniors to name a few.‘We are able to serve all different age groups, ethnicities, and people from all different walks of life. For many, it’s a temporary situation,” said Flood.Foothill Unity Center utilizes about 4,000 community volunteers throughout the year.“We thank all the donors, those that give up their time, those that give up food, those that give up product and those that give up dollars,” said McWilliams.From November 14-24, shoppers can stop by Whole Foods Market’s Pasadena location on Foothill Blvd. and donate $10 toward stocking a pantry for a family of four served by Foothill Unity Center through its Feed Four More program which is Whole Foods Market’s annual community food drive with a goal of feeding more than 20,000 families this holiday season.To stay up to date with Foothill Community Center, visit https://www.facebook.com/FoothillUnityCenter.
