For an organisation it means integration between various departments -fundraising, finance, campaigns, communications – but, he said There is probably more chance of stamping out Aids and curing malaria than achieving integration between fundraising and finance departments.Where fundraising started as a really ‘integrated’ thing, we’ve spent the last 20 years doing the exact opposite of integrating, Clayton said, with the move towards segmentation. Can we break down the silos that have been set up and reintegrate, or is it too big a job?Other speakers at the event included researcher Robin Jones of Milestone Research, director of fundraising at Sue Ryder Care Eric Grounds and Kevin Kibble, managing director of Fundraising Initiatives. Integrated fundraising: is it all it’s cracked up to be? Howard Lake | 5 October 2006 | News The Institute of Fundraising London branch’s conference this week focused on integrated fundraising, what it means and how it works.Opening plenary speaker Alan Clayton of Cascaid wasn’t sure it was really what people wanted. He said he began thinking integration is a cool word, signifying joined-up thinking and communication. One person had suggested that it may just mean that events fundraisers spoke to the direct marketing team from time to time. On the downside it’s a scary thing, Clayton said. It stops things happening and involves taking something small that might be very doable and making it more complicated.

One group of graphic design students will spend spring break helping South African refugees understand their rights through the “together +” anti-xenophobia campaign. Seven Notre Dame graphic and industrial design students will travel to South Africa over break. The educational and promotional campaign is supported by Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and CUSE. Junior Lynn Yeom said what started out as a project in her graphic design class took on much greater meaning — becoming a project to combat discrimination and violence against refugees. “We are trying to solve [a problem] in a graphic design way … an educational way,” she said. Yeom said there is great tension between the black South African community and refugees coming from other countries in Africa. “[Black] South Africans are blaming refugees, saying they are taking all the jobs and that [black South Africans] are not living better because of the refugees,” she said. To try and help ease this tension, students will use design as a means of promoting diversity, creating a variety of materials from informational booklets for refugees to a children’s book, Yeom said. Senior Kassandra Randazzo’s group is working on educating the refugees about healthcare. “Many refugees are not fully aware that the country guarantees them the same rights as native South Africans to fair and equal care,” she said. “We’ve designed materials that explicitly state what they are entitled to and have translated it into a variety of languages to ensure that the message reaches its audience.” Design professor Robert Sedlack and alumna Andrea Pellegrino visited Johannesburg, South Africa in October and began a relationship with the Kgosi Neighborhood Foundation, (KNF) which seeks to bring educational light into the lives of vulnerable children. The pair traveled to South Africa to conduct preliminary research and identify challenges faced by refugees that could be addressed by Notre Dame graphic and industrial design students. The group of graphic design students will be working on four different projects with the KNF. Yeom’s group is working on creating a booklet for refugees. “Newcomers [to South Africa] can get it,” Yeom said. “The booklet talks about shelters, places to go for help and how to get identification and housing documents.” Other groups are creating a children’s book to help the younger generation learn that refugees are not much different than they are, Yeom said. Each of the student groups will visit specific areas in South Africa to help them better understand the audiences they are trying to reach with their designs. “We are traveling to Johannesburg and … around the Pretoria region so we can identify the way the refugees go about getting identification documents,” Yeom said. Randazzo said she and her group will visit hospitals, such as the Baragwanath Hospital in the Soweto area of Johannesburg, to learn more about how refugees deal with healthcare. While the students are working on separate projects in their respective groups, toward the end of the week they will all come together to paint a mural. “We will bring the community together and paint a mural that indicates harmony and togetherness,” Yeom said.

The Mountaineers came in as 11-point underdogs, but fought back from a 15-point deficit early in the second half. Pittsnogle made a 3 to cut Villanova’s lead to 76-74 with under 5 minutes left and Herber made two free throws to tie it. After Allan Ray missed a 3-pointer, Frank Young made a jumper to give West Virginia its first lead, 78-76, since the first half. Herber’s layup put West Virginia ahead 84-79 with 1:23 remaining and Pittsnogle’s hook shot made it 86-81. Foye made a 3-pointer to cut it to 86-84. A 3-pointer by Nardi got Villanova within 88-87, but Herber made two free throws and Nardi committed a crucial turnover. Patrick Beilein sealed it with a free throw. VILLANOVA, Pa. – West Virginia couldn’t make Villanova miss shots, so the Mountaineers forced the ball away from them. Joe Herber scored 23 points and Kevin Pittsnogle had 22, leading No. 24 West Virginia to a 91-87 upset over No. 3 Villanova on Sunday. Mike Gansey added 21 points as the Mountaineers (10-3, 2-0 Big East) beat their second top-10 opponent this season. Randy Foye had 24 points and Mike Nardi scored 23 for Villanova (10-1, 1-1). The Wildcats had 22 turnovers to offset a strong shooting performance. Villanova shot 58 percent (29for 50) from the floor, including 57.7 percent from 3-point range (15 for 26), but had trouble once West Virginia started trapping on defense. “They’re the best in the conference at that,” Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. “Obviously, we’ve got to get better taking care of the ball. There’s two teams that have trapped us – the last two teams – and we’ve turned the ball over. “Even against Temple, another team that trapped a lot, we turned the ball over. Even when we’re winning, we’ve said we’re a work in progress. We still have to get a lot better. I think that was proven today.” West Virginia, which beat then-No. 7 Oklahoma 92-68 last month, has won eight in a row after losing three straight in late November. The Mountaineers avenged a 38-point loss at Villanova last year. “Coming here and beating them, it was tremendous,” Pittsnogle said. “They were hitting incredible shots, but we can shoot with anybody.” The Wildcats shot an astounding 71.4 percent (15 for 21) in the first half, including 76.9 percent (10 for 13) from 3-point range, to take a 46-37 lead. Foye was 2 for 8 during the first half, while his teammates made all 13 of their shots. But West Virginia made key defensive adjustments early in the second half after Nardi hit consecutive 3s to give Villanova a 52-37 lead in the opening minute. “Anytime we got it, they really extended on me and Allan on the wings,” Nardi said. “A couple of times, I got trapped and had to move the ball. I thought they really got out and didn’t allow us to get 3s.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
