My Instant Event Fundraising System Review

Highly Recommended

Of all books related to the topic, I love reading this e-book because of its well-planned flow of content. Even a beginner like me can easily gain huge amount of knowledge in a short period.

Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

The Alchemy of Loss and Hope Fundraising as Memorialisation

Following the merger with a breast cancer advocacy organisation, a few years ago, the charity's supporters have become more diversely constituted with many women with breast cancer now involved who are directly interested in political lobbying activities, rather than only fundraising.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Canada

The Canada Health Act legislates that the provinces provide access to universal healthcare. Consequently, most large hospital or rehabilitation center-based programs are supported by an allocation from the various provincial Ministry of Health institutional budgets. Additional monies may be obtained through fund-raising events or, in the case of maintenance programs, direct patient payments these supplemental sources of income are essential in those provinces where cardiac rehabilitation is a low medical priority.

Female nurturance memorials and the power of testimony

In the same way that the agency of persons attending cancer genetic clinics examined in Chapter 1 is caught up with how particular idioms and values associated with gender are embedded in and have been mobilised by a growing breast cancer movement, the 'activism' of persons involved in a breast cancer research charity is also situated at the intersection between neo-liberal citizenship and the goals and values of preventative public health. A gendered ethos about health was certainly a dimension of how the charity had succeeded in garnering support for its research work. This is reflected in the demographic constitution of the organisation. Although many other charitable bodies are predominantly supported by women, market research carried out by the organisation in the late 1990s suggested that this is strikingly so in this case, with over 90 per cent of supporters being female and more than half under 45. But the kind of gendered civic engagement articulated in the values, ethos and...

Genes and the fundraisers quest

Examining the use of published testimony and personal narratives of involvement, it's clear that fundraising is also a means of 'transcending' suffering, focused as it is on the future, a younger generation or life 'after' breast cancer. As an editorial in one newsletter put it, the work of the charity is about 'turning the devastation caused by breast cancer into hope for the future'. The location of the memorial wall at the entrance to the research centre gives some clue as to the object of this necessarily transformatory work. In fact the alchemy of loss and hope embedded in fundraising as a 'memorial practice' is informed by,

Knowledge not just information

A desire to 'know' about breast cancer research was evident in talking to a number of women who supported the charity through fundraising. They described how they consulted numerous different resources in an effort as one woman put it, 'to find out more'. Jackie talked about how this need to know as much as possible developed after her own experience of breast cancer. It was a desire that seemed to be partly satisfied and perpetuated by her decision to get involved with the charity, as she said 'that's partly why I'm so interested in what they are doing'. Sometimes the need for information specifically about the research activities of the charity was driven by a long-standing investment, as Betty's response to my question about the importance of keeping up to date with the work of the charity indicated Others I met concurred with this. One woman said that the research should be about 'stopping it in the first place not messing around with treatment', while another added that the...

The promise and problems of genetics

Although for Jackie, genes did not provide an obvious answer in understanding the breast cancers that had affected her family, she was still 'excited' by this research which in focusing on a 'known' risk factor held out the hope of future treatment intervention. For some however it was precisely the fact that there was a clinical application associated with the BRCA genes which fuelled a feeling of hope and faith in the research work of the organisation. In fact there was often a productive slippage in the narratives of those I met between the activities of memorialisation for future generations through fundraising, a sense of faith in scientific knowledge or research as a means of 'cure' or 'prevention' of the disease and the value of predictive knowledge associated with genetic testing for the BRCA genes. This was reflected in what one woman said during a focus group discussion when asked about what she thought of the organisation's research focus The way that the genetic research...

The balancing act of BRCA genes

Despite a distortion of the actual doing of science, Brown et al. point out that ideas about a 'promissory future' have become inimical with the public discourse around genetic science, where the 'breakthrough' motif has itself become 'ubiquitous' (2000 see also Bubela and Caulfield 2004). Like other media but also scientific and social science discourse at this time, what might be termed 'genohype' was a readily identifiable element in the publicity literature of the charity in the mid- or late 1990s, the years leading up to the announcement of the first draft of the human genome project and the official opening of the charity's research centre. However, a changed and changing mode for representing genetic knowledge could be discerned in the same material in the months and years immediately surrounding and following these events. The representational and discursive challenge of communicating genetic science to fundraising publics are explored here by juxtaposing close analysis of...

Hype and the human genome project

Van Dijck (1998) and others (Nelkin and Lindee 1995) have examined how a 'genetic imaginary' is an important tool in the public presentation of genomic and genetic research. A rhetorical discourse of 'potentiality' (Ganchoff 2004) was clearly evident in the examples discussed here, where genes and genetic research are embedded within a story of technological expertise and impending or soon to be realised transformatory knowledge. This upbeat presentation promised and implied fulfilment of expected and anticipated authoritative medical knowledge, fuelling, sustaining and reproducing the activities of fundraising as memorialisa-tion that were embedded in the founding ethos and growing success of the charity.

A passion for complexity and the challenge of longterm research

Some scientists were fully aware that the complexity of the research work they were involved in, as well as being a source of fascination and motivation for them, also had difficult ramifications for the charity, in terms of fundraising. As Andrew put it, 'it's a long game and that's why I imagine it's difficult for you' meaning the charity . His remarks also implied that he felt the scientists were not caught up, in the same way that the organisation was, with these challenges. However scientists experience of the tours and their feelings about the prospect of developing supporter advocacy suggested that these boundaries were not always easy to maintain.

Being part of a redemptory science

The experience of scientists, who increasingly must communicate with 'patient' or 'lay' groups beyond the confines of the laboratory, has only just begun to be explored in social and anthropological work. Heath's discussion of the relationship between a group of patients with Marfan Syndrome and scientists in the US, who research the disease draws attention to the 'contradictory connections and divisions that describe the networks linking the laboratory researcher to wider worlds' (1997 79). She explores how patient groups' desire for a therapeutic outcome is 'disturbing' for those involved in basic science research and how they express a need to be 'autonomous' in the work that they do (1997). Yet scientists are in fact increasingly implicated in what Nowotny etal. call the 'agora' of scientific knowledge production (2001). As the narratives and practices explored in this chapter also illustrate, they are no longer excluded but are instead constituting figures in the evolving...

Developing lay expertise and advocacy

Cause for celebration or are rather part of a process of co-option and hence dilute more radicalising agendas (Epstein 2003). Whatever the particular locus of agency at stake in these processes they are, like the incitements to 'give back' that Cori Hayden's work explores, not just 'channels' for democratising initiatives but actively 'construct and give shape' to these practices in unexpected and not always enabling ways (2003). The moves to address and possibly implement 'supporter advocacy' had and continues to have a very particular meaning in relation to an institution which is part of a broader culture of charitably funded cancer research, but where there is also a unique conjunction between 'grassroots' fundraising as a form of gendered 'activism', fuelled and formed by and through the pursuit of basic science research. Defining advocacy as a 'performance of ethics in anticipation of the future', Kim Fortun explores the contradictions at stake in the social dynamics of new...

The morality of breast cancer research

Her necessarily public reply suggested that the domain of breast cancer research was not dogged in the same way as other areas of scientific inquiry might be, by new and troubling ethical issues about consent that had arisen in the aftermath of a number of recent controversies surrounding the storage and use of human tissue in a few UK hospitals. Her reply implied that this work was not 'contaminated' by the muddy ethical waters that other clinical-based research and practice had to confront. Although at other times, at the start of the tours for instance, these boundaries were presented at least as distinctly blurred, this exchange revealed and reflected an ongoing distance between the fields of scientific research and clinical application in relation to BRCA genetics. At the same time that the description of these samples as a 'donation' could be understood as both a reflection and reproduction of some sense of immunity, the sentiments conveyed might also be seen as a microcosm of...

Breast Cancer Research Charity Science Activism and the Quest for Knowledge

Scientific research focused on breast cancer has come to occupy an increasingly prominent space in cancer research over the last 15 20 years, partly in response to the burgeoning growth in gendered health activism around the disease. This has also led to the proliferation and expansion of breast cancer organisations in the UK. Some of these cater to the varying and different needs of those with breast cancer, or their family and friends, while others participate in lobbying parliament, increasing patient advocacy or fundraising for research. All are active in raising awareness about breast cancer, embodied in the now annual international event, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This event which been running since the early 1990s, marked by the selling of 'pink ribbons', has now come to constitute something of a consumer industry. As King points out, these developments index the success of a range of breast cancer organisations, and highlight the increasingly dense interconnections...

Conclusion

The second half of the book, examining how a specific sort of breast cancer 'activism' interfaces with the pursuit of genetic knowledge, outside the dynamic of clinical encounters, widens the scope of this analysis. Examining how a community of people 'affected', if not always afflicted by breast cancer, have become involved in fundraising for a breast cancer research charity illustrates how gendered and gendering health 'activism' is entangled with and fuelled by cancer research focused on molecular knowledge of breast cancer. The 'multi-representational politics' (Epstein 2003) of fundraising for a breast cancer research charity in the pursuit of basic science research are powerfully caught up here in what might be described as a process of 'memorial-isation'. This enables loss or trauma to be both individually and collectively witnessed while holding out the hope of transcending tragedy through both a hope and hype filled science. Although there have been powerful alignments...
