Phasing appeals into stages to motivate committees

first_imgPhasing appeals into stages to motivate committees Howard Lake | 9 September 2002 | News So phasing is a key tool for all fundraisers – it leads not just into celebrations, but also acknowledgements and re-activating prospects who have not yet donated etc. Robert Vincent will be presenting how both to motivate and plan an appeal committee on October 15th at a Workshop Funding Capital Appeals.”Ian Kerr would be interested in your ideas. 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. Ian Kerr of Midas Charity Appeals shares a tip to motivate appeal committees.Ian writes: “When my friend, Robert Vincent, uses his favourite expression ‘Bang on about’ I pay attention. He is an extremely skilled appeal chairman with those scarce talents in fundraising of being able both to motivate and to ask. Recently his ‘banging on’ was about phasing an appeal not just into achievable lumps, but into carefully planned periods that motivate him and his committee. Often an appeal whether revenue or capital can be phased naturally. At other times it is necessary to do some creative figuring, adding or subtracting to the target sums so that as a result there is always something to work towards and a celebration to plan or enjoy.

Student Union protests police violence

first_imgThe Philadelphia Student Union led a protest against police violence at the School District headquarters on May 11.The Philadelphia Student Union, one of a handful of youth-organizing groups in the city, led a protest on the steps of the Philadelphia School District headquarters on May 11. Students, parents, teachers, community members and City Council member Helen Gym spoke about police violence experienced by Black and Brown public school students here.In 2016, a student at Benjamin Franklin High School was assaulted by police officer Jeffrey Maciocha in a third-floor hallway as the student was trying to find a bathroom. The bathrooms on the other floors were all locked — a practice that is evidence of the criminalization of Black youth, who are not even trusted or permitted to freely use bathrooms!There is a graphic 13-second video of the student on the ground in what appears to be a chokehold, reminiscent of Eric Garner’s murder by New York police officers in July 2014. In response to the 2016 assault, the school district agreed to create a system so that complaints can be filed against school police officers, a demand set forth by PSU.However, the district’s complaint system is sorely lacking and does not address the demands made by PSU. The school district has failed to identify exactly how and where students can make complaints. Plus the system is only online, making it largely inaccessible to students without computer access.The school district, not an independent entity, will handle oversight of the complaint system. Already unaccountable to its students, and with a vested interested in protecting the police officers placed in schools, the school district will be the only entity investigating the complaints.Moreover, the complaint system is not open to the larger Philadelphia community, whose members often experience violence and harassment at the hands of school police.With lack of independent oversight, it is not difficult to imagine how many more voices of Philadelphia’s Black, Brown and other poor and oppressed students will be ignored. Several students who spoke at the rally noted that many district schools have more police officers than guidance counselors.Policing in a capitalist country, where wealth was built on the backs of slaves, poor people and immigrants and on stolen Indigenous land, is inherently racist and biased according to class. What the student at Benjamin Franklin High School experienced is the exertion of control over his Black body by a white supremacist institution.What is the purpose of policing in schools? To protect students? It is clear that marginalized and oppressed students need to be protected from police officers, as they all serve to keep oppressed peoples in their “place.” It is not enough to be anti-police brutality. We must be completely anti-police.The struggle against police harassment and occupation of our schools is directly linked to the struggle against police harassment and occupation at Standing Rock; against Immigration, Customs and Enforcement harassment and deportation faced by immigrants; against the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land; against the political repression and budget cuts in Puerto Rico; and so on. We must unite against imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

“Go For Launch” Makes Push for Ag in Indiana Classrooms

first_img By Andy Eubank – Feb 19, 2015 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News “Go For Launch” Makes Push for Ag in Indiana Classrooms SHARE Promoting Ag EducationThis year’s Indiana FFA state officer project working with Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann turned into much more than the officers imagined when they brainstormed the idea early in their officer year. Wednesday “Go For Launch” at the leadership center focused on the benefits of a STEM based ag education program in the classroom. Dr. Paul Kaiser, superintendant of Beech Grove City Schools spoke highly of what the program has done for his schools.“We’re in an urban environment,” he said. “We have 3,000 students so most of our kids have never been to the farm. They don’t understand agri-science or agri-education so we now require that as an 8th grade course. We think it is so valuable that our kids understand the environment around them, where their food comes from, and probably even more importantly the job opportunities that are out there for them. For us the agri-science program is a vision setting program. it gives our kids an opportunity, it gives them a chance to have a vision of something they know they can achieve.”He told HAT they started the program three years ago. The biggest implementation challenge?“Changing the mindset about this is all about production farming to it’s really and truly about agri-science and the multitude of high paying and high skilled jobs that are out there for our kids.”Kaiser was one of 5 panelists, and they weren’t just preaching to the choir. School corporations that don’t offer agriculture in the curriculum were also present, and they heard Dr. Allen Talbert from Purdue confirm the outstanding job availability for ag students.“Very bright,” he said. “In fact there is about 60% of graduates for the demand, so there is more than one job per graduate.Talbert is Professor of Agriculture Education at Purdue University. Indiana FFA’s Steve Hickey was happy with the inaugural Agricultural Education Informational Luncheon, as it turns out an important event to promote ag education.“As we heard today one of the great challenges is getting all of our schools, even our rural schools, to understand that we’re not teaching kids to be farmers. We know that’s a tiny percentage in that room. What we’re teaching are the skills necessary to go forth in any discipline they choose.”Hickey lauded the great run for ag education in the Hoosier state in the last few years, noting the roughly 9,000 Indiana FFA members 3 ½ years ago. The organization is now pushing closer to 11,000 members, and the number of schools with programs has increased from 176 to 195 in the last 4 years.“And there are folks in this room I’m guessing are going to push that number even higher,” he said.(pictured left to right: Kate Skirvin, Agriculture Educator at North Putnam High School, Dr. Paul Kaiser, Superintendent of Beech Grove City Schools, Stefany Deckard, State Program Leader for Agriculture Education and State Perkins Specialist, Dr. Allen Talbert, Professor of Agriculture Education Purdue University and Dr. Dwight Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer National FFA Staff) “Go For Launch” Makes Push for Ag in Indiana Classrooms Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleStudy Quantifies Positive Impacts of U.S. Ethanol Production Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Military censors shut down fortnightly

Follow the news on Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) and the Burma Media Association today called on the military junta’s bureau of censorship to reverse its 1 September decision to ban the privately-owned fortnightly Khit-Sann, which covered current affairs and which was recently told that the junta considered it to be too “pro-American.””At the rate publications are being closed and pressure is being put on journalists, the Burmese press will soon be limited to official propaganda outlets and a few privately-owned entertainmentmagazines,” the two organisations protested.Khit-Sann had been published in Rangoon since August 2003. When told on 1 September that it was banned until further notice, it was given no explanation by Maj. Aye Htun, the head of the censorship bureau that is an offshoot of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS).But editor Kyaw Win was told by censors in August that the magazine was viewed as too pro-American. In June, he had complained to the authorities about the use of his byline in propaganda articles published by an official newspaper. When the government did not respond, he tried to publish an article about it in Khit-Sann, but the censorship bureau banned it.Khit-Sann was one of the very few publications to try to cover current affairs, as well as social, economic and philosophical issues. With a print run of 3,000, it was popular with young people and intellectuals.Another privately-owned publication, Khit-Thit, recently received warnings from the censorship bureau. The cover of an issue looking at the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the allied landing in Normandy was banned because its photo of US combat troops was deemed to be “too aggressive.”The junta has meanwhile been harassing two well-known writers closed to the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD), Ludu Sein Win and Dagon Tayar, since they gave interviews to the Burmese language services of Radio Free Asia and Voice of America. The government press has openly criticised them and Ludu Sein Win’s telephone has been cut for two weeks. to go further News News September 15, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Military censors shut down fortnightly Help by sharing this information News Receive email alerts RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Organisation News RSF_en US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture May 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The five-week program culminated with the interns presenting their experiences to a number of Parsons’ technical managers and executives.Of his experience, one student stated, “Being able to intern with Parsons was one of the best experiences of my life. I am very grateful for the opportunity provided by the City of Los Angeles and to Parsons for making this possible. Shadowing a project manager allowed me to get hands-on experience on what it is like to be in charge of a project. This has been a great learning experience, the people at Parsons were very helpful and welcoming, and I feel like this job has made me a more responsible and mature person.”As a global engineering, construction, technical, and management services firm, Parsons understands the importance of introducing students to STEM and has supported educational organizations and initiatives since its founding in 1944.“Parsons is a longtime supporter of our HIRE LA’s Youth summer program,” said Maria Dolores Nieto, Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce Director, Education & Workforce Development. “The corporation’s employees encourage our students and provide them with opportunities to improve their critical thinking skills in a collaborative, professional environment.”Parsons, celebrating more than 70 years of growth in the engineering, construction, technical, and professional services industries, is a leader in many diversified markets with a focus on defense/security, industrial, and infrastructure.
