Last year these trusts distributed over £14m in grants in total.Invisible Grantmakers is compiled from Social Partnership Marketing’s trust database, which is based on detailed item by item analysis of entries on the Charity Commission’s Register of Charities. Each annual edition is different, with no trust ever featured twice.Each entry outlines the trust’s giving preferences, with reference to past grants and stated giving criteria. The latest income, assets and grant figures are also reported, together with trustee names and full contact details. High net worth trustees are identified, as are trustee links to other charities.Print copies of the limited edition report cost £132. PDF copies are also available.Editor Robert Pike said:“When we first produced Invisible Grantmakers, we thought of it as an aid to smaller charities that lacked the resources to undertake their own trust research, but the Charity Register maintained by the Charity Commission contains many well-hidden gems and even the best-resourced charities will not have the time to sift endlessly through this body of data – so we are pleased to now be undertaking this task for charitable institutions of all sizes, as well as individual prospect researchers.”last_img read more

Queenslanders go high tech to future proof homes

first_imgMs Miles said technology was becoming increasingly integrated within our daily lives due to our active lifestyles.“This demand has flowed into the design world where we are beginning to see technology emerge more often within the home,” she said.“For example, coming home late at night and being able to remotely activate the house’s lighting, cooling and security, all from the user’s smartphone.”Fixtures, bold splashbacks and benchtops will be used to create a layering effect of textures and colours to personalise the heart of the home.Smart fixtures will also make an appearance within the bathroom, offering advanced technology shower accessories with automated innovations and more personalised offerings.Ms Miles said bathrooms were no longer the sterile, utilitarian spaces in a home.“More and more we are seeing them become a room fitted with furniture and decor that creates a spa-like experience. These rooms are becoming places of respite and relaxation, exciting the user’s senses through additions of soft furnishings and aromatics,” she said.“Smart features are becoming increasingly popular in order to customise these user experiences. From thermostatic temperature controls, automated sensors and lighting, to illuminated bathroom fixtures and fittings, we are seeing huge technological advancements finding their way into our water closets.’’For more styling inspiration, visit Porter Davis’ World of Style (WOS) showroom in Fortitude Valley or online via qld.porterdavis.com.au/world-of-style More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoPorter Davis says the way of the future is clever integration of technology in homes.

In saying this, renovations can lead to a lot of unknowns and factors that might become quite costly to a buyer who is looking to retrofit these emerging technologies.”She said sleek and smooth kitchens would become the norm, achieved by “streamlining’’ technology, cabinetry and appliances to create a luxurious and harmonious space. Smart fridges and voice-controlled appliances would be standard and expect to see less fixtures and fittings as kitchens evolve as handless spaces, including practical touch control cabinets.“This look will be complemented with natural finishes, including light marbles and dark timbers to contrast. Chrome is still king, however matte black will continue to trend with brushed brass and gunmetal immerging in tapware offerings,” she said.last_img read more

She also said its a joy to see her students take the time to thank our veterans. “Each class was proud to give in some way,” she said. “A lot of the little ones made special gifts for our veterans and you could see it light up their faces.”Philip Carriveau served four years in the United States Air Force during Operation Desert Storm. He attended Sanborn when he was a kid and is glad to come back and share this day with the students. “There’s a lot of history in coming here in support of the veterans, both when I was a veteran and now as an adult.”Carriveau received an American flag heart with “thank you for your service” written on the back. He said, “Knowing that a young child made this thinking of some unnamed veteran. I was lucky enough and blessed enough to get this one. Getting gifts like this is a great thing. It feels good. It really feels good.”Carriveau was one of about 30 veterans that were honored at the assembly. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Sanborn ElementaryContinue ReadingPrevious Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs offers veterans opportunities for obtaining licensing in MichiganNext Alpena High School to hold forum to prepare parents for college decisionslast_img read more
