Fundraising Convention is the key event in the fundraising community’s calendar, and I am delighted that whilst we are still developing our long term strategy, we are also launching this fund to help fundraisers who would otherwise be unable to attend Convention.” Melanie May | 3 May 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14 Tagged with: diversity Funding Institute of Fundraising 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.

The IoF is inviting fundraisers who self-identify as BAME (Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background), LGBT+, or disabled to apply for the Access Fund by 5pm on 8 June 2018.Information on the eligibility criteria and application process is available on the Fundraising Convention website.The bursaries are the first output from the Expert Advisory Panel on Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, appointed in February this year to develop a strategy for the IoF to tackle the lack of diversity in the profession.The IoF has put forward £5,000 to begin the fund and is looking for partners and supporters to contribute, to enable more fundraisers from diverse backgrounds to attend Convention. It is hoping to find enough support to match its £5,000 to create a £10k fund for this year’s Convention, with a £500 gift to the fund covering a one day pass, travel and accommodation costs for example, and £1k covering a three-day pass, travel and accommodation.Sufina Ahmad, Chair of the Expert Panel, said:“As Chair of the Expert Panel I am delighted that the IoF has taken the initiative to launch this Access Fund for Convention 2018. Whilst our main role is to develop a long term strategy for the IoF to improve the diversity and inclusiveness of the fundraising profession, we believe it is important that the IoF launches this Fund to enable more fundraisers from diverse communities to attend Convention.”Amanda Bringans, Chair of the IoF, said Advertisementlast_img read more

Some students have part-time jobs, and many will go home on the weekends to visit family and friends,” Dr Casey said.“With the onset of the dominant UK COVID-19 variant, which is more transmissible than the original strain, there is now a high level of risk of transmission in the student community,” she warned.“Because many young people will carry the virus without any symptoms, this presents an increased risk of infection to household, workplace and family contacts. Outbreaks arising out of household transmission is starting to become a worrying trend across the Mid-West, at a crucial time when we need to suppress the virus’ spread in the community.”“We are urging everyone in the region to avoid household visits and social gatherings of any kind, as we have seen far too many times how a single episode of social contact has led to serious illness and death,” added Dr Casey.Students at UL have been repeatedly advised to follow public health guidelines, to download the COVID tracker app and to self-isolate if they display any symptoms while they await a test.UL said that, overall, it has seen a high level of compliance on campus with the COVID-19 precautions it had put in place.Students have been contacted with full details on how to register online for an on-campus test.All tests will be processed by the HSE.
