Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy recession Research / statistics Arts and not-for-profit sector specialists Arts Quarter has released the findings of its Fundraising and Revenue Generation Survey.It reveals what Arts Quarter describe as “a mixed picture”. While many cultural and other not-for-profit organisations reported declines in many areas of fundraising, others are reporting an increase in their wider revenue generation, comparing their results on the previous year.The survey was conducted over January and February 2009 and attracted responses from 306 organisations across the UK.A number of respondents also provided insights into a range of ways in which they are seeking to address any potential shortfalls in the medium term which we have included within the full report.Arts Quarter were able to use the data to compare the situation in cultural sector organisations against that for the wider charity sector.They found that the cultural sector had suffered marginally more from a drop in corporate support than the wider charitable community. Organisations were typically either having to demonstrate even greater value to their sponsors than before, or were reporting that companies had completely withdrawn their support.In contrast, cultural organisations were faring better than the wider charitable sector in terms of retaining funding from grantmaking trusts.Cultural organisations were suffering a higher rate of decline than other charities in individual giving of gifts of less than £1,000.They survey enabled Arts Quarter to compare organisations in London with those elsewhere in the UK.The survey confirmed that both cultural and other charitable organisations outside London were suffering greater declines in corporate giving than those in London. However, London-based organisations reported a greater decline in support from Trusts for both project support and core funding than those based elsewhere in the UK. Similarly, levels of individual giving were also stronger outside London.A copy of the full report is available at no charge from Arts Quarter.www.artsquarter.co.uk/news.html AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 13 March 2009 | News Arts Quarter surveys cultural organisations’ income 36 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

A group of health experts and academics have pledged to tackle rising obesity by combating sugar.The new group, called ‘Action on Sugar’, claims that sugar has become as dangerous as alcohol or tobacco.Action on Sugar has been set up by the team behind Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH), which has pushed for cuts to salt intake since the 1990s. The campaign has called on food producers to dramatically reduce levels of sugar in everyday products.They are also asking companies to stop advertising sugary drinks and snacks to children.Action on Sugar chairman Graham MacGregor, who is Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine and set up CASH in 1996, said: “We must now tackle the obesity epidemic both in the UK and worldwide.“This is a simple plan, which gives a level playing field to the food industry and must be adopted by the Department of Health to reduce the completely unnecessary and very large amounts of sugar the food and soft drinks industry is currently adding to our foods.”Simon Capewell, Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Liverpool, UK, said: “Sugar is the new tobacco.“Everywhere, sugary drinks and junk foods are now pressed on unsuspecting parents and children by a cynical industry focused on profit not health.“The obesity epidemic is already generating a huge burden of disease and death.”
