What do people say about different levels of trust?“By studying the merits of each channel, such as high trust, the insights can enable fundraisers to maximise the effectiveness of a campaign with a sophisticated multi-channel approach. Carefully combining a mix of media that balances one medium’s weakness with another’s strength, can help create more effective campaigns, in turn, generating more vital income for your cause.”David Cole, Managing Director, fast.MAP“As fundraisers and charities review their fundraising activity the information and insight that reports like Fundraising Media DNA bring is invaluable. The more we know about how supporters and the public respond to different fundraising channels and communications, the more we can plan great campaigns that inspire people. It’s important that we understand people’s preferences and responses so that we can tailor fundraising activity and engage them in a way that is likely to give them the best experience of fundraising and establish long-term relationships.”Daniel Fluskey, Head of Policy Research, Institute of Fundraising Tagged with: Fundraising Media DNA Individual giving Research / statistics trust Different donor profiles trust different channelsPress, DRTV, Social Media and Telephone fundraising communications are seen as rather trustworthy, scoring near average levels for this attribute (Press Trustworthy Index: Overall, 95 vs. DRTV Trustworthy Index: Overall, 96 vs. Social Media Trustworthy Index: Overall, 101 vs. Telephone Trustworthy Index: Overall, 104). Our final analysis of the fastMAP and Institute of Fundraising’s Fundraising Media DNA report 2016 looks at which channels build trust in donors.Key headlinesResearch suggests that written communications, such as Direct Mail, SMS and Email are seen as most trustworthyOver-55s seem to particularly trust Direct Mail, Email and Social Media fundraisingSocial Media also generates trust from High Donors, as well as DRTV fundraisingDownload your copy of the Fundraising Media DNA report and Infographics using the free download code UKFU16Each channel generates different levels of trustWhilst each fundraising channel creates diverse responses and attribute scores, some channels are seen as more trustworthy than others. The research of Fundraising Media DNA suggests that, for example, written communication seems more trustworthy than other fundraising channels. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 Howard Lake | 6 March 2017 | News These findings suggest that the chosen channel of a fundraising campaign could attract a diverse audience as well as a different approach or content. This is especially interesting when marketers combine different channels in their fundraising campaigns. In this way, they could gain the trust of several audiences in addition to being approachable on more than one channel.Written communications seem most trustworthyThe channels that potential donors seem to trust most on an overall level are Email, SMS and Direct Mail (Email Trustworthy Index: Overall, 111 vs. SMS Trustworthy Index: Overall, 119 vs. Direct Mail Trustworthy Index: Overall, 133).This leads to the conclusion that the most trusted channels are channels that are also seen as highly personalised (Email Personalised Index: Overall, 139 vs. SMS Personalised Index: Overall, 145 vs. Direct Mail Personalised Index: Overall, 125). This result can be regarded as crucial information, especially for new and less established charities. Fundraising Media DNA: which channels build trust? Over-55s and High Donors find DRTV and Social Media particularly trustworthy (DRTV Trustworthy Index: 55+, 107 vs. Social Media Trustworthy Index: 55+, 123 vs. DRTV Trustworthy Index: High Donors, 102 vs. Social Media Trustworthy Index: High Donors, 121). Press and Telephone however, appear most trustworthy to Low Donors (Press Trustworthy Index: Low Donors, 109 vs. Telephone Trustworthy Index: Low Donors, 134). Face-to- face communications, such as Door to Door or Street fundraising, could do better with regards to the trustworthy attribute profiles (Door to Door Trustworthy Index: Overall, 88 vs. Street Trustworthy Index: Overall, 83). Nevertheless, both channels are seen as welcomed by potential donors (Door to Door Welcomed Index: Overall, 110 vs. Street Welcomed Index: Overall, 90). These findings suggest that it might not be the channel itself generating low levels for the trustworthy attribute, but rather, the delivery and execution of the fundraising which could be improved.

Mr.Colin L. Powell Secretary of State U.S. Department of State Washington, D.C. 20520 United States of America January 11, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Request for sanctions to be imposed on twenty-four Haitian officials Jean Dady Siméon, Haitian national police spokesperson Myrlande Libérus, Senator – Member of the Commission in charge of examining the request to lift Senator Dany Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity In the face of such systematic violations against press freedom in Haiti, violations which are jeopardizing democracy and the constitutional state, we request that you impose two types of sanctions on officials and Haitian politicians, who, from their position of authority, are hindering the progress of investigations and are maintaining a climate of impunity for the authors responsible for carrying out acts of violence against journalists. Finally, the judicial police department have not yet given any orders to carry out the arrest warrants which were issued to Richard Salomon and Franck Joseph, respectively right-hand man and bodygaurd of Dany Toussaint, both suspected of having taken part in the murder of Jean Dominique. Elsewhere, Paul Raymond, the spokesman of TLK (Ti Kominote Legliz) and René Civil, the spokesman for Jeunesse Pouvoir Populaire (JPP- Youth Power Movement), held a press conference in September 2001, despite the fact that they had been issued warrants of arrest by the police. Henri-Claude Ménard, Minister of the Interior Organisation Jean-Marie Fourel Celestin, Senate Vice-President – Member of the Commission in charge of examining the request to lift Senator Dany Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity Paris, 11 January 2002 Dumay Bony, Former Petit-Goâve mayor’s assistant Jean-Bertrand Aristide, President of the Republic of Haiti The Damoclès Network, an association fighting against impunity and Reporters sans frontières (RSF – Reporters without Borders), an international organisation that defends press freedom request the Cabinet of the European Union and the United States Congress to impose individual sanctions on Haitian officials and politicians that, by omission, hinder all inquiries aimed at shedding a light on the assassinations of Jean Dominique, director of Radio Haiti Inter, assassinated on the 3rd of April, 2000 and Brignol Lindor, a journalist working for Radio Echo 2000, assassinated on the 3rd of December, 2001. Sir, Dany Toussaint, Senator Impunity also continues in the case of Jean Dominique, a journalist and political analyst shot down on the 3rd of April 2000 in the courtyard of his radio station Radio Haiti Inter. Known for his independant tone, Jean Dominique criticized former supporters of Duvalier, the military and prominent bourgeoisie families of whom he suspected, within the party of Lavalas, the party of the president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, just before dying, of wishing to divert attention away from “the movement towards his principles”. The inquiry into his murder has confronted a number of obstacles and has not yet been accomplished to this day. The Senate is also obstructing the investigation. In November 2000, Claudy Gassant in turn invited senator Dany Toussaint to stand as witness. The senator turned down the request and put forward the parliamentary immunity granted to the senator. Finally, on the 21st of February 2001, Dany Toussaint appeared voluntarily before the judge. After being heard on several occasions by the latter, Dany Toussaint was charged in May. Denouncing a “huge plot “, the senator then opened a procedure challenging Judge Gassant over witnesses that were illegally obtained from a prison. In August 2001, Claude Gassant asked the Senate to vote to take away his parliamentary immunity. This has not yet been passed. Help by sharing this information The measures of security promised to the judge by the Minister of Justice, Gary Lissade, were often delayed in being put into action and were regularly altogether withdrawn. News The two organisations are extremely concerned with the fact that the impunity that reigns in these two cases is being served as a strategy by the authorities to muzzle journalists that are considered to be too critical towards the government. News On the 3rd of December, the journalist Brignol Lindor, in charge of the news of the radio station Radio Echo 2000, a private station in Petit-Goâve, was killed by stones and machetes. On the 30th of November, Dumay Bony, deputy mayor of Petit-Goâve, cited the journalist and called for a system of “zero tolerance ” to be enforced against members of the opposition. Launched by president Aristide, the policy of “zero tolerance” gives a free hand to policemen to deal with any offenders caught red-handed. According to an inquiry carried out by the Association of Haitian Journalists (AJH), members from the popular organisation, “Domi Nan Bwa”, close to Lavalas, admitted having murdered Brignol Lindor. The public prosecutor’s office of Petit Goâve issued nine arrest warrants to members of “Domi Nan Bwa” as well as to Dumay Bony himself. To this day not one of the arrest warrants have been put into effect. Informed of the economical sanctions that have been imposed on Haiti by the European Union, our two organisations consider, nevertheless, that targeted measures would be a more efficient method to restore press freedom as well as the constitutional state in this country. Michel-Ange Jean-Baptiste, Commissioner of Léogane Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice 1 – Nature of Individual Sanctions Jeannot François, Director of the Criminal Investigation Department Another journalist murdered in Haiti Alix Alexandre, Former commissioner of Léogane Victor Magloire, Senator – Member of the Commission in charge of examining the request to lift Senator Dany Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity Elsewhere, journalists suspected of having participated in the assassination of Jean Dominique, have died under troubling circumstances. In this way, Jean-Wilner Lalanne, suspected of having been used as a middle-man between the people behind the murder and the murderers themselves, died in June 2000 from a minor operation, following his arrest. Also, in November 2000 the circumstances of the death of Panel Rénélus, the supposed murderer of Jean Dominique, which was brought on by a crowd of demonstrators the day after his arrest by the police remains unclear and shady. Claude Gassant asserted that he “was thrown into the crowd ” by the police.

Gary Lissade, Minister of Justice Fernando Castello President of Reporters sans frontières Robert Ménard President of Damocles Network Yvon Neptune, President of the Senate – Member of the Commission in charge of examining the request to lift Senator Dany Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity Concerned over the impunity that the authors of acts of violence against journalists benefit from in Haiti, the Damoclès Network, an association fighting against impunity and Reporters without Borders (RSF- Reporters sans frontières) request the European Union and the United States Congress to impose individual sanctions on twenty-four Haitian officials. Those officials, by omission, are also hindering inquiries aimed at shedding a light on those responsible for the assassinations of two journalists, Jean Dominique and Brignol Lindor. The personalized sanctions that have been requested are of two types : refusal of visas to enter and to transit countries that are members of the European Union, as well as the United-States concerning all persons cited, including members of their family, and the freezing of all funds held abroad. These measures are all the more vital as the impunity that reigns in these two cases is systematically being served as a strategy by the authorities to muzzle journalists that are considered to be too critical towards the government. News The investigating magistrate in charge of handling the case, Jean-Sénat Fleury, dropped the case after some pressure. On the 26th of July 2000 he had invited Dany Toussaint, not yet a senator, to stand as a witness. The latter appeared with a group of “chimera’s ” (henchmen recruited from working-class neighbourhoods of the capital) who had come to yell hostile slogans under the steps of the courts of law. Jean Gérard Dubreuil, Secretary of State for Public Safety 2 – People concerned claiming individual sanctions to go further Judge Claudy Gassant took over the case in September 2000. On several occasions he was threatened with a weapon by representatives of the state, among them the deputy Millien Rommange (Fanmi Lavalas), the police superintendent, Paul Evens Saintune, and members of the security service of the presidential palace. RSF_en The attacks being carried out against press freedom are systematic. In 2001alone, forty journalists were attacked or threatened. Those responsible for these acts of violence, in most cases partisans of Fanmi Lavalas (currently in power), were not harassed. Over a dozen journalists have also been forced into exile. We hope that our initiative is taken into consideration and we look forward to hearing from you . Meanwhile, we send our regards and thank you for your attention.
