Study finds face-to-face fundraising “does not alienate charity supporters” Howard Lake | 4 November 2003 | News 25 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis More than 90% of individuals surveyed by Bristol Business School “were happy with the recruitment process.”Face-to-face fundraising, which has come under heavy criticism for being unduly pressurising, does not alienate charity supporters, according to the latest research from Bristol Business School, part of the University of the West of England.The School has carried out a study to to find out more about ‘street donors’ and why a proportion of them cancel their regular gift after a relatively short period of time. Advertisement Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Giving/Philanthropy Individual giving Research / statistics AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Researchers worked with six major UK fundraising charities drawn from a range ofcauses, undertaking a two-stage programme of qualitative and quantitative research amongst 4,846 active and lapsed face-to-face donors. The researchers looked at why ‘street donors’ stop giving; what their expectations are when they sign up on the street tosupport a charity; and what they think of the communications they receive from the charity they give to.The study revealed that more than 90% of individuals were happy with the recruitment process and that pressure was not a significant factor in them cancelling their support.The study also found that the main reason for lapsed gifts is a change in financialcircumstances, rather than dissatisfaction with the charity or with therecruitment method.The researchers found that both lapsed and active donors have “very favourableexperiences” of the face-to-face recruitment process.Age seems to play a part in lapsed donations. Lapsed donors are significantly younger than those who keep giving. Also, many donors do not plan to keep giving for as long as the charity might hope: half of the lapsed donors planned to give for one year or less when they signed up.Donors were “generally happy” with the communications they received from the charity they donated to, but a common theme was their preference for more choice in what they are sent. In addition over 30% would prefer e-mail communications. Face-to-face fundraising is no longer growing the size of the market of donors, it would seem. Over 80% of the individuals in the study reported that they give regularly to an average of four charities.Adrian Sargeant, Professor of Nonprofit Marketing at Bristol Business School, commented: “Face-to-face (street) fundraising is one of the main routes UKcharities and pressure groups use in recruiting new donors. It has attracteda new cohort of donors, not normally reached by other types of fundraising. The majority of face-to-face recruits are aged 20-40 – a good deal younger than the traditional profile of UK charity givers.“However, many charities have found that a high proportion of donors recruited on the street cancel their regular gift after a relatively short time, and this ‘drop off’ has led to face-to-face budgets being cutdramatically in some cases.”He concluded: “whilst individual organisations have undertaken research todiscover more about why these donors stop giving, and how they could encourage them to keep giving for a longer period, the fundraising sector generally understands very little about what drives donor retention amongst this audience. We have carried out the study to provide such intelligence to charities and pressure groups.”You can download the report “Retaining and Developing Face-to-Face Donors” at no charge in Word format from Sargeant Associates.

Facebook printCars line up in front of the 7-Eleven on West Berry Street and South University Drive. (Photo by Shane Battis.)Some Fort Worth residents are lining up at the pumps as North Texas begins the Labor Day weekend with a limited supply of gasoline.The dwindling supply is the result of ten South Texas refineries going offline due to disruptions from Harvey. These refineries account for 16 percent of U.S. gasoline production, which totals over 3 million barrels per day.Several gas stations in Fort Worth say they can’t guarantee they will have gas to supply customers through the weekend. The shrinking gas supply has caused gas prices to go up in the Fort Worth area. Gas prices spiked to an average of $2.40, up from $2.17 earlier this week, according to fuel price tracking website GasBuddy.At the Exxon on Bellaire Drive, employee Ralph Hudson said their gas prices are at $2.54 and may be expected to continue rising. “With the concerns of gas shortages, customers who have come in have been nervous and I have heard from many customers that some stations don’t have gas,” he said.Plastic bags covered the majority of the pumps at the Mobil on South University Drive leaving a growing line of cars Thursday afternoon.Cars packed in Exxon’s parking lot on South University Drive and scrambled to find gas, only to find out that every pump is unavailable and out of gas.“I live in Fort Worth but I commute two times a week to Denton so if anything, that’s the only thing I’m worried about,” Leah Thornton said. “I’m not really panicking but I didn’t realize it would escalate. I heard on the radio this morning that gas stations were pretty crazy but this is another level. I’m just glad I was able to come here before the rush from after work.”Another Exxon customer would rather stay away.“I plan on driving less until this problem goes away,” Dean O’Connell, an Exxon customer said. “I wasn’t planning to travel this Labor Day weekend, but now I am certainly not.”While some stations are being drained by the surge of customers, not everyone is worried about this weekend’s supply.Zee Mehmod, owner of the 7-Eleven on West Berry and South University Drive, said cars have been lined up since 6 a.m. waiting to fill their vehicles and he expects more throughout the day. He said many stations in the area have run out of gas, but his station got a 9,000 gallon delivery Thursday morning and is confident his customers will have gas tomorrow.“People have purchased $11,000 as 11:30 a.m. today. I just had a man buy 101 gallons of gas that totaled $300,” Jehan Khan, a 7-Eleven employee said. “We only have 2,500 gallons of [regular] gas left and at this rate we should be out in the next hour. Our deliveries come from Waco, Oklahoma and Fort Worth. If we run out of gas it is because the media has scared everybody, not because a shortage of fuel.”Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton tweeted Thursday that there isn’t a shortage.There is no #gasshortage. Get the details: https://t.co/4mNQTi6FbD— Ryan Sitton (@RyanSitton) August 31, 2017Mayor Betsy Price backed him up with a similar tweet.#TxRRC addresseses unnecessary rush to gas stations out of fear from fuel shortages. $230Million+ barrels. Price gouging criminal issue! https://t.co/hI61mFMDr7— Betsy Price (@MayorBetsyPrice) August 31, 2017However, many residents still expressed worry over their next fill up and some frustration at gas stations.“I’m freaking out about the gas shortage because everybody else is freaking out,” Lauren Harris said. “My family planned a trip to Austin this weekend, but we have all filled our gas tanks so I think we will be okay.”Harris isn’t the only one with a road trip ahead.“I had a business meeting in College Station that I had to cancel because of the gas shortage,” lawyer Ken Link said. “I should’ve gotten gas last night but I didn’t realize it would be so bad. The Costco on Overton Ridge was at least 50 cars deep.” Edrick Garner said trying to get gas in Fort Worth wasn’t pleasant. “I spent an extra 30 minutes to an hour going to four different gas stations,” he said. “I went around 8-8:30 this morning and it was pretty crazy. My wife and I got gas last night so I’m not really worried about it. Not yet at least.” Zamamba Martinez, a 7-Eleven customer, has no intention of leaving her house unless absolutely necessary.“Whatever gas I use today; I will be back tomorrow to fill my car up again,” Martinez said. “Even if it is just a quarter tank.”Katie Carter, Makenzie Keely, Alexis Guerrero, Lana, Wynn, Ryan Myers and Taylor Sutton all contributed to this story.

Facebook By admin – April 30, 2018 Facebook Pinterest Twitter After a rollercoaster day, the Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved an agreement between the district and Ector Success Academy Network, a nonprofit entity, to operate Ector Middle School starting in time for school next fall.ECISD has eight campuses on improvement required status under state accountability regulations. Ector Middle School, Noel and Zavala elementary are in their fifth year. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.At 4:45 p.m. April 27, the district was notified that its memorandum of understanding with Texas Tech University College of Education would not be sufficient to meet statutory requirements under Senate Bill 1882, which allows these types of partnerships.Board President Carol Gregg opened Monday’s special meeting with an explanation of how things got to this point. She said this is the first time this legislation has been implemented and all parties involved, including TEA, had to work through the obstacles.The board spent about 40 minutes in closed session before coming out and approving the agreement unanimously. The Texas Education Agency still has to approve it.Late Monday, Texas Tech issued a statement regarding last week’s events.“Texas Tech University is unable to move forward with the proposed plans for a partnership with Ector County ISD. We appreciate the work of both sides, but the university is not able to adequately address the detailed requirements of a performance contract at this time,” the statement said.Superintendent Tom Crowe said earlier Monday that the district talked to Robert Bleisch, a lecturer and doctoral candidate at Texas Tech College of Education, about the possibility of forming a nonprofit, which has filed paperwork for. Bleisch presented the concept of Ector College Prep Success Academy in April to a packed house in the Ector Middle School auditorium.Bleisch, who also is director of Safety Net Domain for the East Lubbock Promise Neighborhood Grant, said the Texas Tech Turnaround model will be implemented. It is designed to provide academic and behavior support to struggling students. This includes at-risk students, English language learners, special education and intentional non-learners who show excessive misbehavior, office discipline referrals, in school and out of school suspensions, an executive summary provided by Bleisch said.He said the discipline will be similar to ECISD policy.“We’re coming in with a really strong student piece where discipline is going to be taken care of. It’s going to be a mandatory type thing where kids are going to have to come to school. They’re going to have to behave. They’re going to have to do their homework,” Bleisch said.“That’s something that it should not be negotiable. Kids that are two or three years behind should not have the option of not coming to school, so we have some strong systems that we believe will take care of most of it right away. It’s going to be a work in progress. There’s no perfect system out there, so there are a lot of similarities between our system and the one the district uses,” he added.On the curriculum front, Bleisch said he will first listen to people and talk to them about what’s already been done.“We want to come in meet with the principal, meet with the staff, watch, listen, learn and then kind of tailor our approach based on the needs of that specific campus,” Bleisch said.He has said he hopes to keep the current administration and teachers at Ector.He added that it will be a few months before the nonprofit becomes official, but it’s his understanding that the process can move forward while that’s happening. He said his role with Texas Tech is still under discussion.Bleisch said things like transportation, food service and special education, for example, will flow through ECISD. The district will bill the nonprofit for the services and get reimbursed, he said.Bleisch said the plan is to keep as many of the teachers and administrators as possible at Ector.He said he has had experience with school turnarounds, but not necessarily using this avenue.Expertise from Texas Tech will still be used and the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR test, will still be the measuring stick, he said.The school will have its own board that will meet monthly or quarterly. Currently they include Superintendent of Cloudcroft Municipal Schools Porter Curtell, Ravi Shakamuri, Ron Leach, Sondra Eoff, all Ector County community members, and Zinab Munoz, adjunct faculty at TechTeach at Texas Tech University.Bleisch said he has worked closely with Curtell in the past and he has worked at alternative and early college high school campuses.Board member Delma Abalos said she would recommend that another Hispanic and an African American be added to the board.Bleisch said he plans to be in Odessa the majority of the time, but he’ll probably commute. He said that hasn’t been figured out yet, but he plans to work hand-in-hand with Principal Charles Quintela.He said the agreement, which takes effect in July, could potentially be for 10 years, but if quick success is not achieved they could be out in two years. TEA’s sanctions would be stayed for those two years. “We have a two-year grace period to be able to do this work,” Bleisch said. Crowe said he was pleased that the agreement with the nonprofit being approved, but it’s not a done deal until TEA approves it. “It’s really the same deal as before, it’s just that Tech is not legally responsible or officially involved. But it was his (Bleisch’s) program all along. He’s the one who put it together. He’s the one (who has) done it before, so I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be great for our community,” Crowe said.Mike Atkins, the attorney for the district, said TEA has 15 days to approve it.Quintela said there’s a lot of hard work to come, but there are no options except to move forward with a student-centered, student-driven program. “… We’re going to have barriers we’re going to have to knock down in order to get parents and students to think school’s doing what’s best for us, so we’ve got to be on board. If they’re not, we’re going to make believers out of them,” he said.

The new processing-in-memory (PIM) architecture brings powerful AI computing capabilities inside high-performance memory, to accelerate large-scale processing in data centers, high performance computing (HPC) systems and AI-enabled mobile applications. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210216006156/en/ First High Bandwidth Memory with AI processing power (Graphic: Business Wire) Kwangil Park, senior vice president of Memory Product Planning at Samsung Electronics stated, “Our groundbreaking HBM-PIM is the industry’s first programmable PIM solution tailored for diverse AI-driven workloads such as HPC, training and inference. We plan to build upon this breakthrough by further collaborating with AI solution providers for even more advanced PIM-powered applications.” Rick Stevens, Argonne’s Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences commented, “I’m delighted to see that Samsung is addressing the memory bandwidth/power challenges for HPC and AI computing. HBM-PIM design has demonstrated impressive performance and power gains on important classes of AI applications, so we look forward to working together to evaluate its performance on additional problems of interest to Argonne National Laboratory.” Most of today’s computing systems are based on the von Neumann architecture, which uses separate processor and memory units to carry out millions of intricate data processing tasks. This sequential processing approach requires data to constantly move back and forth, resulting in a system-slowing bottleneck especially when handling ever-increasing volumes of data. Instead, the HBM-PIM brings processing power directly to where the data is stored by placing a DRAM-optimized AI engine inside each memory bank — a storage sub-unit — enabling parallel processing and minimizing data movement. When applied to Samsung’s existing HBM2 Aquabolt solution, the new architecture is able to deliver over twice the system performance while reducing energy consumption by more than 70%. The HBM-PIM also does not require any hardware or software changes, allowing faster integration into existing systems. Samsung’s paper on the HBM-PIM has been selected for presentation at the renowned International Solid-State Circuits Virtual Conference (ISSCC) held through Feb. 22. Samsung’s HBM-PIM is now being tested inside AI accelerators by leading AI solution partners, with all validations expected to be completed within the first half of this year.
