Jenny Spraggett has also joined the team as our new administrator and office manager earlier this year and is already a strong asset to PtGF!
PtGF also recently co-hosted a fabulous event with Signia Wealth. Nick Jenkins, ex-trader, successful entrepreneur, founder of Moonpig and CEO of ARK was our key speaker and inspired the audience in giving wisely and effectively.

PtGF YouTube Interview channel
PtGF has launched their new YouTube channel and will make regular interviews of interesting and inspiring figures of the philanthropic sector.
We wanted to launch this channel by interviewing our founder, Anna Josse about her opinion on what the barriers to charitable giving are and how PtGF offers solutions to make it easier and more accessible:

Congrats to Give it back, George!
In a statement on the 31 May 2012, the chancellor George Osborne said:
“I can confirm that we will proceed next year with a cap on income tax reliefs for wealthy people, but we won’t be capping relief for giving money to charity. It is clear from our conversations with charities that any kind of cap could damage donations, and as I said at the budget that’s not what we want at all. So we’ve listened…”
Prism the Gift Fund welcomes the government’s announcement that it plans to change the decision on the cap on charity tax relief. PtGF encourages tax effective giving from individuals donating significant amounts of money and therefore has been vocal in its criticism of the recent proposed changes in legislation. PtGF is more than ever actively engaging and educating donors to encourage them to understand correctly the benefits of Gift Aid and Share Giving.
