Half of the total was donated by the Society’s members as part of its Small Change, Big Difference scheme.The first Foundation cheque was awarded in 1999 and since then the number of donations has increased year on year. In 2008, 1,999 donations were made totalling over £400,000, but already in 2009 more than 600 charities and good causes have been nominated for support.The Charitable Foundation receives most of its funding through the unique Small Change, Big Difference scheme. Through the scheme Society members donate just the pennies from the interest earned on their accounts. Society members are then invited to nominate charities and good causes to receive support. Last year over 85% of causes that received a donation were nominated by a Society member.Louise Neill of the Charitable Foundation said: “Over 630,000 accounts currently participate in the Small Change, Big Difference scheme and this number is growing every day. Members of the scheme donate no more than 99 pence per year on an account – an average of 47p – and have the opportunity to nominate a charity or good cause to receive a much larger donation”.www.ybs.co.uk/cf/foundation.html Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation Tagged with: Funding Research / statisticscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tagged with: face-to-face Research / statistics Face-to-face requests 34 times more effective than email, research finds Advertisement  129 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 12 May 2017 | News Research conducted in the US into the power of persuasiveness in written communication versus face-to-face methods has found that face-to-face is 34 times more effective when making a request than email.The study was conducted by Mahdi Roghanizad of Western University and Vanessa K. Bohns at the ILR School at Cornell University, and published in the volume 69 of the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology. It states that despite email’s reach, asking in person is the significantly more effective approach; with just asking six people in person equal the power of sending an email to 200.In one experiment for the study, 45 people asked 10 strangers each to complete a brief survey. All participants made the same request using the same script but half did so via email, while the other half asked face-to-face. It found that people were much more likely to agree to complete a survey when they were asked in-person.However, before the experiment, the study found that email participants felt just as confident as face-to-face participants that people would respond positively to their request, guessing that an average of 5.5 of the ten people they asked would agree, compared to 5 for those asking in person. In fact, the face-to-face requests were 34 times more effective than emailed ones.  130 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis39 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis39last_img read more
