Everything you need to know about Mindspace

This summer, Cause4 moved into new premises – a Mindspace shared office in the heart of the City of London. For us, it was more than an office move – it was the end result of an exploration into how our company wants to operate, where we get our inspiration from, and how we think the future is going to unfold.

At the beginning of July 2018, The Charity Commission published a report titled ‘Trust in Charities, 2018’, which given the sector’s recent scandals, namely, Presidents Club and Oxfam, is very timely.

GoodBox is Leading the Way for Cashless Donations to Charities

28th February, 2018 | By Cause4 staff

Towards the end of last year, I was closely monitoring the growth of a new start-up, GoodBox, which is on a mission to pioneer the fundraising sector with contactless donation platforms.

Cause4 Team’s Response to Oxfam Scandal

14th February, 2018 | By Emily Clarke

It’s a scandal fit for our times. After Weinstein, Westminster, and the Presidents Club, the fact that senior aid workers for Oxfam in Haiti and Chad perpetrated abuse against vulnerable women is yet another example of privileged men using their power to exploit those who are dependent on their work.

International aid cash transfers – an effective tool for independence, or a waste of British taxpayer’s money?

17th November, 2017

Entwined with the history of imperialism is how richer countries give money to poorer countries – something they have been doing in various ways since the 19th century.

The Challenges of Advocacy

15th April, 2014 | By Cause4 staff

Advocacy and raising awareness about a charitable cause can be both challenging and frustrating. It can be surprisingly difficult to get people to engage with your ideas and avoid coming across as self-righteous. Environmentalists and feminists are often negatively stereotyped, and street fundraisers branded as “charity muggers”. Recent research backs this up: these negative stereotypes are a barrier to social change.
