Howard Lake | 7 January 2015 | News Online giving growth for Harrison’s FundHarrison’s Fund is a small charity that has benefited from starting to accept online gifts. The charity, which is working to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, has used Charity Checkout to offer credit and debit card processing since October 2012. Since then the charity’s online giving has grown to over £10,000 a month.The charity’s founder, Alex Smith, said:“We have seen a sharp increase in the number and value of donations being made to the charity over the last year. Since investing in online fundraising with Charity Checkout we have experienced a wave of support for the charity, which has begun to spread virally across the internet. This new-found funding will enable us to fund even more research to stop Duchenne.” Tagged with: Digital Small charities still “missing out on online donations” Many small charities are still not accepting online donations via their own website, according to research by charity payment processing specialist Charity Checkout. Their survey of 5,214 charities over the past two years found that 71% do not accept online donations.Charity Checkout’s founder Chester Mojay-Sinclare says that the contrast between national charities and local ones has never been so stark. He said:“Whilst the majority of local charities are do not accept credit and debit card payments online, large charities are investing more in technology year on year. We must reduce the technical and financial barriers to payment processing for smaller not for profits, or it will not be too long until we start to lose our local community based charities entirely.”Charity Checkout aims to make online payments accessible to all good causes, irrespective of size. Last month it expanded its service to social enterprises and very small charitable organisations.Over 55% of its charity clients are new to online fundraising and more than 75% have previously never offered regular giving via their website.Mojay-Sinclare argues that local charities can no longer rely on donations in cash and cheques alone. A recent report by payments association Apacs states that 2015 will see the number of payments made by cash in the UK overtaken by other methods of paying. Charity Checkout reports that the average online donation on its site has grown by 32% over three years to £69.70, whilst the number of gifts is increasing. Charities that are not accepting online donations should, Mojay-Sinclare contends, be preparing for this now.

Friday, Oct.2, 2015This year’s football schedule and the Horned Frogs’ growing popularity with sports fans prompted university officials to combine Family Weekend and homecoming.Unlike most years, when there are a Family Weekend and another for homecoming, both will be held Sept. 16-18. The decision to combine came after Student Activities, which plans Family Weekend, and Alumni Relations, which handles homecoming, found their options limited.There were only two possible game choices: the Iowa State University game in September and the University of Oklahoma game in October. The OU game was ruled out. Officials worried that tickets would be scarce because of the rivalry and proximity between Fort Worth and Norman, Oklahoma.That left the Iowa State game and meant Student Activities and Alumni Relations had to create a comprehensive weekend benefiting the university and all of its visitors.Tickets are still available for the Iowa State game, but seating is limited. The Oklahoma game that takes place on Oct. 1, only has standing room only tickets available for purchase, and those tickets will go on sale at the start of that game week.“Combining homecoming and Family Weekend this year does not mean we will combine them in the future,” Kim Turner, director of Student Activities said. “We will continue to look at each year and make the decision that we feel is best for students, alumni, families, and the rest of the Horned Frog family.”Turner said that she expects 5,000 to 6,000 family members to sign up online and plan a campus visit.“That number does not include alumni or the countless other families that come to see their students without officially registering for the weekend.”TCU’s Family Weekend and homecoming will take place the weekend of Sept. 16-18. Events begin Friday afternoon and last until Sunday evening. TAGSphotos Twitter Students walk alongside the float built by Beta Theta Pi, Chi Omega and Alpha Delta Pi in the 2014 Homecoming Parade.
