Child’s Day cash­ing in on un­re­stricted gains

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

JeWIsH cHIlD’s Day has bucked a re­ces­sion­ary trend by re­port­ing a 20 per cent rise in un­re­stricted in­come for its lat­est fi­nan­cial year.

the £775,000 in this cat­e­gory can be put by the char­ity to to­wards chil­dren’s agen­cies which meet its ap­pli- cations cri­te­ria. re­stricted in­come is from trusts which spec­ify the agen­cies which can ben­e­fit.

trea­surer stephen Moss re­ported on a chal­leng­ing year for JcD. “but de­spite the fi­nan­cial tur­moil, our over­all ap­peal in­come [£968,000] came to within six per cent of the pre­vi­ous year, which was a ma­jor achieve­ment.”

How­ever, there had been a “sig­nif­i­cant drop” in re­stricted in­come, as the re­sult of two trusts not re­new­ing their sup­port.

the av­er­age do­na­tion was up by three per cent al­though the num­ber of donors had fallen. JcD helped 119 chil­dren’s or­gan­i­sa­tions dur­ing the year un­der re­view, com­pared to 104 in 2007-8 and 91 in 2006-7. ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Daniel burger said this was “a clear sign of the eco­nomic cli­mate”.
