Rogare announces new project exploring how to study the history of fundraising

first_imgBoyd said: The project will be run as a discussion or study group, on a social media platform yet to be decided, with teams to explore each of these research questions, and other research areas as and when they arise. The so-called ‘social problem’ of fundraising (a term used by Beth Breeze in her 2017 book The New Fundraisers) – how and why fundraising has caused so much unease with the public in the past and what is the media’s role in addressing, solving or exacerbating the ‘social problem of fundraising’. The role of women in the development of the profession/organisation of fundraising Fundraising thinktank Rogare launches a new project today, on the history of fundraising.

National fundraising histories, particularly in non-English speaking countries The team will be looking to expand the people engaged with this project, particularly as it starts to add and explore various research questions, so anyone who would like to be a part of this project, is invited to reach out to Boyd on LinkedIn. Alternatively, she can be reached by emailing Ian MacQuillin at Rogare at [email protected] Melanie May | 12 May 2021 | Newscenter_img Rogare announces new project exploring how to study the history of fundraising More accurately, it says, the project is about the historiography of fundraising – looking at how fundraising ought to be studied, the questions about the history of fundraising that ought be explored, and the historical research techniques and approaches that should be adopted in doing so. Initially Rogare has assembled a team of fundraisers to get the project up and running, many of whom have studied history and are versed in historical research methods, with the project led by Rhyannon Boyd, head of fundraising of the Forever Friends Appeal at Bath NHS Foundation Trust, and a history graduate of the University of York.  480 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis However, it points out, there are alternative social, cultural and economic lenses through which to study history, and recommends these approaches to explore a series of research questions to shed new light on the past, present and future of the profession. Histories of particular types of fundraising “When we study the historiography of fundraising, we must proactively seek out and critically analyse sources and interpretations to give us context, voices and stories of those not traditionally heard through the ‘Great Man’ approach or a simple chronology of events. How we study the history of fundraising enables us to examine and critically question the cultural, political, social and economic influences across time that have formed the narratives around how our profession has developed and what we believe to be true. “I very much invite you to contribute your thoughts and ideas to this project, which I am delighted to lead. I very much hope that by shining a light on the historical analysis of fundraising that fundraisers now and in the future can better understand the errors of the past and shape future success.” More information about the project, as well as the paper One Damn Ask After Another, can be found on the Rogare website.

Beat writers predict Syracuse to move to 2-0 with win over Iona Tuesday night

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (1-0) takes on Iona (0-1) Tuesday night in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. The Orange is coming off a 77-45 season-opening win over Cornell while the Gaels got nipped by Albany, 69-67. Tyus Battle led all scorers with 18 points against the Big Red, while Geno Thorpe and Oshae Brissett chipped in 12 and 11, respectively. Bourama Sidibe and Matthew Moyer led the way on the glass with 10 rebounds apiece. Our beat writers make picks and discuss Syracuse’s second game of the season.Sam Fortier (1-0)Iona USyracuse 62, Iona 51Syracuse played another traditional Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference team last season in Monmouth and dispatched them 71-50. Granted, this is a more inexperienced Syracuse but the Gaels are weakened too by losses of its top three scorers. If the Gaels shoot well from beyond the arc, then the team could win, but right now that seems too unlikely to pick.Matthew Gutierrez (1-0)Gael forceSyracuse 66, Iona 57Don’t sleep on the Gaels, an up-tempo, 3-point-heavy team that matches up well against the 2-3 zone. Iona is coming off of a MAAC title and NCAA Tournament appearance, but the Gaels lost its top three scorers and top two rebounders from a year ago. The Orange will sneak away with a victory and improve to 2-0 in what’s probably its toughest nonconference game until Maryland visits at the end of the month.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTomer Langer (1-0)Back-to-backSyracuse 72, Iona 56Iona is a better team than Cornell is, but it’s missing a lot of its pieces from last year’s 22-13 team, namely its top three scorers. Like Sam said, if Iona gets hot behind the arc, because it will put up a lot of shots, then it has a chance. But the Gaels made just 4-of-22 3-pointers against Albany to start off their season. Until I see something different, I imagine Syracuse will start off slowly in the first half but will pull away in the second. Comments Published on November 14, 2017 at 8:51 amlast_img read more

Quadri Leads Team Nigeria to Top Egypt, Great Britain, Others

first_imgITF JUNIOR CIRCUITNigeria’s Barakat Quadri, sunday, recorded one of the most fairy-tale successes in ITF junior tennis by winning the girl’s singles title at the 2016 ITF West/Central Africa 18 & Under Tennis Circuit in Cotonou, Benin Republic.Quadri defeated Carmine Becoude, the third seed from Benin 6-0, 6-2 to emerge the new queen of junior tennis in the region as Nigeria, with two gold medals, emerged overall winners of the tournament which had players from seven African countries as well as India, Great Britain, Poland, Portugal and Malaysia. Qiadri,14, was making her debut at the under 18 level and as such was not seeded as she had no ranking points. However, the year-long training she had at the ITF Development Center in Morocco, duly reflected in her performance at the six-day tournament, as she brushed aside all her opponents which also includes a 6-2, 6-1 triumph over number one seed, Marie Ange Adomon of Cote d’Ivoire in the semifinal.Prior to her win over Adomon, she was ruthless in her 6-0, 6-0 quarterfinal crushing of fellow Nigerian, Angel Mcleod, the fourth seed, to send shivers down the spines of her rivals.Moments after her triumph over McLeod, whom she also defeated in their last competitive meeting at the 2015 MP Tiger Tennis Tournament in Lagos, she paired Toyin Asogba to win the doubles by beating the combination of Becoude and India’s Trisha Vinod 6-4, 7-6.A delirious Quadri dedicated the title to her parents, Amine Ben Makhlouf, who is the Director of the ITF Centre in Morocco and the Nigeria Tennis Federation.Nigeria’s coach Mohammed Ubale was equally elated describing Quadri’s feat as one Nice of the most memorable in Nigeria’s junior tennis in recent years.“This is one of the greatest moment for junior tennis in Nigeria. Barakat was just too good. She played very well against all of her opponents who are older. No doubt she has a very bright future in tennis.”Team Nigeria, made up 15 players – four girls and eleven boys – are scheduled to arrive Lome, Togo later on Sunday in continuation of the circuit which is an ITF Grade 4 tournament.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
