Nine charities from across the UK have been shortlisted for this year’s Charities’ Online Accounts Awards.
Sponsored by CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) and the Institute of Chartered
Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Awards are designed to acknowledge and reward
online financial reporting in the voluntary sector.
These awards, now in their second year of focusing on online publication, serve to underline the importance of online fundraising. Annual reports serve a valuable role as a fundraising tool, so any initiative that promotes their publication online is welcomed by UK Fundraising.
Divided into four income categories, the shortlist represents a range of the the most effective and transparent online annual report and accounts being published.
The shortlist consists of:
- Category A – income above £2 million
World Vision UK, Save the Children and Weston Spirit.
- Category B – income between £500,000 and £2million
The Young Minds Trust and the Prince’s Trust in Scotland
- Category C – income between £100,000 and £500,000
Community Network and St Anne’s, Soho.
- Category D – income below £100,000
African Children’s Education Trust and Second 1st Hurst Scout Group
A prize of £2,000 will be awarded to the winning charity in each category, together with a winner’s ‘seal’ for their Web site and a pass to attend one of CAF’s conferences. Runners-up will each receive a certificate of excellence.
The winners will be announced on 8
December 2004 at Chartered Accountants’ Hall, Moorgate, London. Charities are welcome to attend the Ceremony and a seminar hosted by CFDG (Charity Finance Directors’ Group). The keynote speaker, Pesh Framjee, Head of the Non Profit Organisations Unit at Deloitte and special advisor to CFDG, will be discussing the current fiscal environment affecting charity accounting, including the Charities’ Bill and new SORP.
Both the CFDG seminar and the awards ceremony are free to attend.
