first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 27 May 2009 | News The report suggests that for organisations to succeed in major gift philanthropy they must become more professional and maintain clear lines of communication with their supporter base. Updated information, the report says, is also crucial.The report also quotes from a recent Philanthropy UK survey, which provided a check list of ways charities can improve their prospects of attracting major gifts.www.2into3.com A new report into philanthropy in Ireland indicates that it is not inevitable that major giving will decline during the current recession and an unprecedented fall in the paper wealth of many of Ireland’s highest net-worth individuals.The emergence of a culture of philanthropic giving among Ireland’s wealthy may lead to philanthropic giving actually increasing in this period of economic downturn, according to the report, Where is the Wealth Now? The Direction of Major-Gift Giving in Ireland, by Prospect 23, the research arm of consultancy 2into3.Drawing on the 2009 Sunday Times Rich List, the report estimates that wealth levels among Ireland’s richest 250 have dropped by nearly 33 per cent over the last year. The wealth generated in the Celtic Tiger years, however, has not completely dissipated. The richest 250 still hold €40.23 billion in assets; the wealthiest 10 share €17 billion between them.

Des Bishop celebrates his mother with ‘Mia Mamma’ Farmer Michael and Kathleen: If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry Emailcenter_img WhatsApp Advertisement by Aoife [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK comic Jennifer Hartnett is making funny news for 2015.The Corbally woman, who moved stateside 13 years ago, has started production on her very own news show through YouTube Studios. Jennifer has been back on Eastern shores no less that 24 hours after her Christmas visit home, and has already started to work on the project.Jennifer told the Limerick Post “I pitched the idea to YouTube Studios myself as well as a couple of other comics. I want to use comic commentators to do smart material on current events. The goal is to use comedy to educate. I feel people don’t engage politically because they don’t have the confidence. So this will be a satirical news show covering many topics like health, news, politics etc.”Its about making international content entertaining whilst phasing out the Kardashians and other ridiculous pop-culture acts.”As well as being a comic, Jennifer is a model and actress who is currently in a national commercial for Weight Watchers in the US. She has also featured in commercials for Hooters, Coors Light, Hollywood Jeans and a funny instructional video for SCRABBLE (HASBRO) which received over 800,000 hits on BuzzFeed.She is signed with Osbrink one of the largest commercial agencies in the US and 90210 Talent agency in Los Angeles. She also hosts her own show “For Feck Sake” at clubs throughout California including the world famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard.Jennifer revealed a segment for her news show which she said she is quite excited about. “It’s called Luscious Ladies Liquored Literary Society or LLLLS. It will be a book club about non-fiction books. Smart books, political books, but to make it funny.”“The first production meeting for the show is this week and then it will be a few weeks before we begin shooting. I won’t do anything with the show until it’s perfect and I am happy with everything,” she said.Jennifer has already kicked off her busy New Year with a bang by presenting awards at the 2015 Mobile Excellence Awards at YouTube Studios in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.Speaking about her departure back to California, Jennifer said: “The sky is the limit in L.A but I must admit I do miss my home, I miss my friends and family. It’s great to come home.”Go to www.jenniferhartnett.com for news and updates.
