Few charities are carrying paid-for advertising on their Web sites and are missing out on a revenue stream.Ninety per cent of Web sites developed for charities by Web design agency Mediafish “have refused to allow banner advertising, even though the company has identified potential sources of income,” writes Nicola Hill in Charity Times.Hill quotes Howard Lake of Fundraising UK Ltd: “it is amazing how few charities have advertising on their sites. It may be because fundraisers are not used to promoting their charity online and therefore don’t see it as an income stream.” Lake added that e-mail newsletters “may be a lucrative advertising revenue source for chraities in the future.” Advertisement 10 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charities don’t carry paid-for advertising on their Web sites Howard Lake | 25 March 2002 | News 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.

Saboteurs cut through the cables of the radio’s aerial, preventing it from broadcasting on its usual frequency and reaching all its listeners.The 70-metre structure supporting the aerial collapsed suddenly on 12 January taking programmes off air. Police said three steel cables had been severed, probably with a metal saw. It was not known why the attack was launched but it caused damaged estimated at 100,000 pesos (about 22,000 euros or 29,000 dollars), “an amount impossible to find” for the small team of 20 journalists who run the station on a cooperative basis.The radio was launched on 31 January 1952 and was the first station to broadcast on the AM band in Corrientes province. It is now broadcasting on the FM “Espléndida” band but cannot be heard by all its previous listeners, said the Argentine Journalism Forum (FOPEA), the national organisation for the defence of press freedom.“From the circumstances of this sabotage, it is obvious that the intention was to silence LT6 Radio Goya”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “This was not an act of vandalism, but a carefully planned operation by people who were familiar with the station’s installations.”“We hope that an investigation will quickly uncover the motive for and the perpetrators of this attack and that LT6 Radio Goya can get the help it needs to be able to resume broadcasting normally,” it added.The association of Corrientes journalists strongly protested against the sabotage and the province’s interior and justice minister, Walter Insaurralde, promised “to find those responsible for this appalling attack on press freedom”.
