Hospice Aid UK: lack of transparency meant fundraising misled public

first_img Melanie May | 3 January 2017 | News Tagged with: Charity Commission trustees arrangements with a third party fundraiser which bear all the hallmarks of a professional fundraiser arrangement, but which are structured to avoid the legal rules; the fundraiser may be described as an adviser or consultant in the contract even though in reality they are really controlling the solicitation of funds on the charity’s behalf – these arrangements can also mean that it is not clear to the donor that the fundraising is being delivered by, or with the significant involvement of, a third party at a significant cost to the charitymedium or long term contracts that have very limited termination or adjustment provisionsarrangements in which the charity only benefits from the arrangement at the very end of the contract term, and where there is the possibility that the charity will not benefit at allarrangements where the fees received by, or payments made to third party fundraisers damage public trust and confidence in that charity.The full report is available on GOV.UK and the Commission has also drawn attention to its guidance on the subject Charity fundraising: a guide to trustee duties (CC20). AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Hospice Aid UK: lack of transparency meant fundraising misled public The Charity Commission has published the results of its inquiry into Hospice Aid UK, finding that fundraising by its agency lacked transparency and misled the public.The Commission launched its inquiry in 2014 following concerns raised by members of the public and other charities about Hospice Aid UK’s fundraising practices and its direct charitable expenditure.The inquiry found evidence of poor governance and poor financial management of the charity and its affairs by its trustees. An examination of the agreement that the charity entered into with a fundraising agency in 2012 for seven years established that the terms of the agreement substantially favoured the fundraising agency rather than the charity’s best interests.It also found that mailing material sent to the public did not contain a solicitation statement which explained how a donation would be used, the percentage of those funds that would be received by the charity or how much would be taken up by the costs and fees of the agreement. The direct mailing material therefore lacked transparency and did not enable the donating public to make an informed decision when donating to the charity, the inquiry found.In addition, in the three reporting years since the charity entered into the agreement (2013 – 2015), the inquiry found that the charity’s gross income was £1,448,258, while direct donations to hospices amounted to £78,925: meaning that just 5.5% of donations went to the end cause.However, the charity’s current trustees have already taken steps to rectify some of the issues identified and the charity has also published a response to the inquiry on its site. The Commission approved the form and content of a new solicitation statement and verified the financial figures referred to in the statement, which the charity has agreed will be displayed on all new fundraising material. The charity has also negotiated a reduction in the costs from the agency.The Commission has said that it will continue to monitor the charity’s compliance with these action plans. The Commission has also reported its findings regarding the fundraising agency to the Fundraising Regulator.Michelle Russell, director of investigations, monitoring and enforcement at the Charity Commission, said:“This case is a clear reminder to all charities of the importance of their legal responsibilities when fundraising. This is a case where we believe poor financial oversight and a failure to adequately control costs and overheads was an instrumental factor in the deteriorating financial position and where a fundraising arrangement was not only not in the charity’s best interests, mean that the public believed more money was going to charitable causes than was the case.“We have made clear we expect charities to comply with relevant legal rules, including those designed to make third party fundraising arrangements transparent to donors, supporters and the public. The public expect and deserve to know how their donations will be spent and to what extent the charity is benefitting.”Advice for charitiesThe Charity Commission has recently issued advice for charities on how to avoid entering into fundraising arrangements such as this one.Charities are particularly warned to look out for the following: Advertisement  147 total views,  1 views today  148 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 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.

News April 27, 2021 Find out more Although Bolsonaro appears more and more isolated, his radical discourse is being repeated and intensified by members of his family and some of the members of his government, including health minister Luiz Henrique Mandetta, who described the media on 28 March as “sordid” and “toxic” and urged Brazilians to “turn of their TV sets off for a while.” “This radicalization and intensification of the attacks against the media is extremely disturbing”, said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “President Bolsonaro is again targeting the messengers instead of the real enemy and is become more and more irresponsible by the day. During this period of pandemic, the Brazilian government has more important things to do that persecute the media, whose news reporting is now more essential than ever.” Follow the news on Brazil Brazil is ranked 105th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.center_img 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies The president had posted videos on his account that showed him walking through the streets of Brasilia and mingling with the public – behaviour that completely contradicts his own government’s recommendations and those of the World Health Organization.

Go home!” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s shockingly irresponsible and inflammatory verbal attacks on the media as he continues to deny the importance of the coronavirus epidemic, although it has affected Brazil more than any other country in Latin America. He again minimized the dangers of coronavirus on a national TV channel two days later, referring to it as a “little flu,” criticizing local officials who are calling for a lockdown, and accusing the media of creating an artificial chaos.“Much of the media (…) are spreading a feeling of fear by exploiting the large number of victims in Italy, a country with many elderly people and a climate completely different from ours” he said, calling this “a perfect scenario created by the media so that hysteria takes over our country.” News In an unprecedented move, two tweets in which Bolsonaro again questioned the point of a complete lockdown were deleted by Twitter from his official account on 29 March on the grounds that they violated the social media platform’s rules. The social media platforms are also reportedly concerned about what those close to the president are posting. According to the Folha de São Paulo newspaper, Twitter blocked the accounts of Sen. Flavio Bolsonaro (one of the president’s sons)and environment minister Ricardo Salles for 12 hours as a warning on the grounds that they had posted fake news and opinions liable to aggravate the pandemic.

SpectraWAVE Announces $13.2 Million Series A-2 Financing from Existing Investors to Bring Intracoronary Imaging…

first_img Pinterest SpectraWAVE Announces $13.2 Million Series A-2 Financing from Existing Investors to Bring Intracoronary Imaging Technology to Market Facebook Facebook TAGS  Pinterest WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 center_img BEDFORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– SpectraWAVE, Inc. today announced a $13.2 million Series A-2 financing to support completion of product development and regulatory filing for its flagship intracoronary imaging product, designed to help physicians optimize coronary stenting interventions and limit future adverse events. The funding round is led by prior investor Deerfield Management, and includes follow-on investment from prior unnamed seed investors. Coronary artery disease (CAD), the buildup of plaque in the wall of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart, causes 9 million deaths worldwide each year. In CAD, patients can undergo stent placement to relieve symptoms, but one in five patients can experience a major adverse event. SpectraWAVE is developing a medical imaging platform that combines two state-of-the-art technologies providing high resolution plaque structure and content in coronary blood vessels. The imaging data aids interventional cardiologists during stent optimization and in their assessment of the patient’s risk for future adverse events. “This is an exciting day for the SpectraWAVE team who have made incredible progress developing a cost-effective, high quality, easy-to-use product for interventional cardiologists,” said Eman Namati, Ph.D., CEO of SpectraWAVE. “The continued commitment from Deerfield, in addition to the significant follow-on investments from prior investors further validates our intravascular imaging technology, and its potential to help patients globally.” With the new funds, SpectraWAVE will continue to scale the team, development, and operations ahead of a regulatory filing. The company has recently appointed additional experienced industry talent, including leaders in Image Analysis, Clinical Affairs, and Regulatory and Quality Affairs, and established a world-renowned Clinical Advisory Board of experts. “SpectraWAVE’s novel multi-modality imaging catheter aids physicians in targeted coronary interventions and has the opportunity to make a fundamental impact on the lives of coronary artery disease patients,” said Steve Hochberg, Partner at Deerfield Management, lead Series A-2 investor. “The complexity of mid-procedure visualization and its impact on clinical decision making requires a truly unique product and a talented team to bring it to market. SpectraWAVE has shown immense progress, and we’re pleased to continue our support as it rapidly moves towards its first regulatory filing.” About SpectraWAVE, Inc. SpectraWAVE, located in Bedford, MA, is a privately held medical device company founded in 2017 to improve coronary artery disease (CAD) outcomes with photonics. CAD, the buildup of plaque in the wall of the arteries that supply blood to the heart, affects 18.2 million adults age 20 and older. In CAD patients that undergo percutaneous stent placement, it is estimated that one in five patients experience adverse events, with half of those adverse events caused by high risk plaques that were previously left untreated. The SpectraWAVE medical imaging platform is a state-of-the-art integration of proven imaging technologies – designed to help interventional cardiologists understand their patients and optimize interventions.
