Wednesday, 10 March, 2010

Paul Palmer, Professor of Voluntary Sector Management at Cass says the that the Government has been the principle driver of Third Sector funding over the past fifteen years, but that this will soon end.  Government funding accounts for approximately 40% of charity income, followed by corporate donations, individual giving and investment income from charities with their own investments.

Professor Palmer also explained that new sources of finance and charitable trusts will have to replace Government funding in this week’s Cass Talks interview.  Cass Talks is a series of free video and audio interviews uploaded weekly each Wednesday, presented by BBC Business Reporter and current Cass EMBA student, Alex Ritson.

The interviews are an opportunity to hear Cass faculty give their perspective on current business and finance news stories, global issues affecting the business world and new research coming out of the School.
