Advertisement Howard Lake | 24 January 2003 | News The journal will be edited by Susan Forrester with former Society Guardian journalist Nicola Hill as Deputy Editor. Information from DSC researchers will be supplemented by contributions from leading funders and fundraisers. Each issue of Funding for Change will feature a special section on newly identified sources of support and the policy changes of top funders.Published in January, April, July and October, the journal will consist of 32 pages in A4 format. Issue one will be launched at Charityfair 2003 in April 2003. Annual subscriptions will cost £40 to voluntary and community organisations and £50 to statutory and commercial organisations. Existing subscribers to either publication will be eligible for four issues of Funding for Change for the price of three, but will need to contact the Directory of Social Change for details.Charities are now facing a growing number of funding information services, many of them covering similar news items. As well as new online services such as access-funds.co.uk, there have been recent paper publications such as ‘Funding Report’ from Caritasdata and ‘External Funding Bulletin.’ If they cover different information, then such a multitude of sources are welcome. Duplication of mterial though will simply take up fundraisers’ time unnecessarily. In DSC’s favour, they are rationalising their journals and reducing the total number in the marketplace by one.UK Fundraising looks forward to covering a story where two commercial funding information providers collaborate or merge to provide a better service for fundraisers and grantseekers.

In the last three years, the shelter underwent a major makeover which included a state-of-the art Wellness Clinic, new Critter Center, animal boarding spaces and temperature-controlled kennels.We’re building more opportunities to keep animals in homes,” said Julie Bank, President and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society. “The Pasadena Animal League is so important to [the Humane Society] – they help us raise funds and to awareness in the community we serve.”New programs at the Pasadena Humane Society include Helping Paws, which provides assistance to animal owners in crisis so that they can keep their pets through tough times, and Kids for Animals, which encourages children ages 18 and under to be responsible pet owners. Other community programs include the Mobile Wellness Units which provide free or low-cost spay and neuter services and the Wiggle Waggle Waggon which transports animals to shelters where they have a better chance of getting adopted.Shelter tours were led by volunteers and included a special look at the Wellness Center’s surgical suite, the kennels and the Critter Room. Tour guide, Jonathan, explained that many Pasadena is seeing a surplus of pitbull and chihuahua breeds and adds that the Pasadena Humane Society offers no cost sterilization of those breeds. The Wellness Clinic performs roughly 20 operations per day and each animal is cuddled by volunteers as it wakes up from anesthesia in an area called “The Beach,” before being taken to a recovery kennel. Other notable details include the volunteer-made toys for bunnies and the fact that the Pasadena Humane Society handles more animals than just cats and dogs – notable residents include a snapping turtle, two roosters and, at one time, a crocodile.The Pasadena Humane Society is supported, in part, by donations from the Pasadena Animal League and through their services and store, The Shelter Shop. Services such as, boarding, veterinary care and purchases all benefit the shelter. The Pasadena Animal League also accepts donations of gently used towels and blankets, dog and cat beds and other pet supplies.For more information and to get involved visit http://pasadenaanimalleague.org/.

ODC wants audit of Hispanic Chamber

first_imgLocal NewsGovernment WhatsApp Previous articleBoard to discuss charter for bond committee, consultantNext articleCouncil approves roof repairs admin By admin – April 10, 2018 ODC wants audit of Hispanic Chamber WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Facebook Twitter Facebook Pinterest The city board overseeing economic development funds requested detailed financial information from the Odessa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as part of a review underway that comes as the struggling organization prepares to seek new public funding following the abrupt removal of its leaders last month.The Odessa Development Corporation asked for information including a third-party audit, a copy of the organization’s bylaws and policies, and an explanation of any relationship between the city-funded nonprofit and a charity that lists the same city office as its address.ODC President Betsy Triplett-Hurt said the city has never required a third-party audit of the Hispanic Chamber — a revelation that emerged during the review. She said an outside accounting firm handles the organization’s bookkeeping but the scope of that work does not include the level of detail that an audit would, such as connecting spending to receipts.“We just don’t have that assurance, that protection of taxpayers’ money,” Triplett-Hurt said. “And we did not realize until all this came about that their contract does not require them to have an audit. Shame on us. We didn’t realize the contract doesn’t require it. So why should they? And we don’t know why it doesn’t.”Triplett-Hurt said the Hispanic Chamber is the only organization funded by the ODC that doesn’t get the independent audits.Hispanic Chamber officials say they are cooperating with the review while the organization conducts its own investigation that seeks to answer “if any misconduct was done by past leadership,” as the chamber’s Interim CEO and Chair Ben Rubio described it at a recent press conference.Public funds budgeted for the Hispanic Chamber this year totaled more than $305,000, paid in monthly installments.Rubio said the organization has routinely reported financial information to the city and will cooperate with the review.“Anything the city is going to ask for we are going to try our best to give them,” Rubio said. “We are cooperating 100 percent with the city and the ODC.”The former CEO Price Arredondo, who was abruptly fired from his paid post on March 8, has denied any wrongdoing. Arredondo’s ouster came just before he was set to present a proposal to the ODC for changes to the Hispanic Chamber that would have included ending the paid position heading the Mexico Initiatives, an effort to build business ties with Mexico.Other new board members said they were also pushed out at the meeting, an account remaining Hispanic Chamber officials have disputed. Hispanic Chamber officials have not explained the reason for Arredondo’s removal.The shake-up prompted concern by ODC board members about who was in charge of the Hispanic Chamber and how money was being spent.Until this month, the paid position was filled by Raymond Chavez, who was paid about $58,000 by the city this year for six months of work. The project served as a lifeline for the Hispanic Chamber when Chavez founded it in 2014.But early supporters including Mayor David Turner and some ODC board members have since criticized poor management by the Hispanic Chamber and a struggle documenting results.Rubio, who says he is volunteering his time leading the organization, said there is no financial connection between the Hispanic Chamber and the Odessa Hispanic Chamber Charitable Foundation — meaning no public money goes to the charity — and that he and others who serve on the charity do not get paid. Public documents list Chavez as the president of the charity.Turner said he did not know about the charity with the same address listed as the Hispanic Chamber.“Those are questions that certainly need to be asked,” Turner said. “It may be totally innocent, and that’s fine. But if you have mail coming to an organization that’s titled something else, it needs to be a public record. All our books are public record.”The ODC meets Thursday and is scheduled to the upcoming budgeting process for the coming fiscal year, when it’s expected that Hispanic Chamber officials will request new funding.Rubio, at a Thursday news conference where he declined to take questions, asked Odessans for patience and promised to release the findings of the Hispanic Chamber’s investigation once it’s complete.Interim City Attorney Gary Landers said he is leading “negotiations” between the city and the Hispanic Chamber that “are moving along well” but declined to discuss details of those talks.“We’ll be able to verify where all the public money went and where it’s been accounted for,” Landers said.An audit by a third-party may take longer than the 60-day period the organization had per its contract with the city before its public funding stops.Landers and Triplett-Hurt said they anticipated an outcome of the review would be greater consistency in the way organizations funded through the ODC report back to the city.“The good that’s coming out of all of this is everything is going to be straightened out, and everything will be done as it should be,” Triplett-Hurt said.last_img read more

first_img September 25, 2014 485 Views Previous: Foreclosure Inventory Falls, But Delinquency Rate Rises in August Next: Wells Fargo’s J.K. Huey Receives 2014 Five Star Lifetime Achievement Award Foreclosure inventory is down nationwide, but the delinquency rate is up, according to Black Knight Financial Services’ First Look at August Mortgage Data released today. Foreclosure starts declined by 10 percent from July to August and by 24 percent from August 2013 to August 2014, according to Black Knight. The month-over-month decrease in foreclosure starts was the first in five months. The total number of foreclosure starts in August was reported at 81,600. Foreclosure inventory, which is the total number of loans in foreclosure, fell to 913,000, its lowest point since March 2008. Foreclosure loans are past due for an average of 1,010 days.While foreclosure starts and overall inventory fell, however, the mortgage delinquency rate took a 5 percent month-over-month leap in August up to its highest point since February; the delinquency rate declined year-over-year, however, by 4.8 percent, Black Knight reported. The majority of new delinquencies reported in August were in the early stage of delinquency. The total number of delinquent loans increased by 146,000 from July to August. Delinquent loans are defined as those more than 30 days past due but not in foreclosure.The August median price of U.S. distressed homes climbed both monthly and annually, according to RealtyTrac’s August 2014 U.S. Residential and Foreclosure Sales Report released today. Distressed properties, which are homes that are either in foreclosure or owned by banks, saw their average sale price jump up to $129,000 dollars for August, which is an increase of 2 percent from July and 15 percent from August 2013, RealtyTrac reported. That price, despite the monthly and annual increases, is still 37 percent below the national median price of a non-distressed home, which was reported at $205,000. in Featured, Media, Webcasts About Author: Jordan Funderburk DS News Webcast: Thursday 9/25/2014 Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Featured / DS News Webcast: Thursday 9/25/2014  Print This Post Related Articlescenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago 2014-09-25 Jordan Funderburk Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Economic and Job Growth Pushing Housing Slowly Toward ‘Normal’ Levels

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Economic and Job Growth Pushing Housing Slowly Toward ‘Normal’ Levels  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The housing market is slowly but surely inching closer to normal levels with the help of economic and job growth.According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/First American Leading Markets Index (LMI) released Thursday, markets in 75 of the approximately 360 metro areas nationwide have returned to or exceeded their last normal levels of economic and housing activity in the second quarter of 2015. This is an increase of 13 markets year-over-year.“The markets are gradually improving and economic and job growth continue to strengthen, which bodes well for housing for the remainder of the year,” said Tom Woods, NAHB chairman and a home builder and developer from Blue Springs, Missouri.The NAHB reported that the index’s score increased on point to .92, which means that the nationwide average is at 92 percent of normal economic and housing activity. Although this increase may seem marginal, this one point rise up places the market closer to the one point goal, indicating that it has returned to normal. In addition, 66 percent of markets have shown improvement year-over-year.“Of the three elements in the LMI (house prices, permits, and employment), house prices have had the broadest recovery, with 345 markets returning to or exceeding their last normal level,” said David Crowe, NAHB’s chief economist. “Meanwhile, 64 markets have met or exceeded their normal employment levels. The housing permit level has made the least progress toward normality, with only 26 markets at or above their last normal level.”The index found that Baton Rouge, Louisiana continues to top the list of major metros on the LMI, with a score of 1.47, 47 percent better than its last normal market level. Other major metros leading the list include Austin, Texas; Honolulu, Hawaii; Houston, Texas; and Oklahoma City. Rounding out the top ten are San Jose, California; Los Angeles, California; Charleston, South Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Nashville, Tennessee.
