Podcast – Making charity dollars count

Christchurch City Libraries blog hosts a series of regular podcasts from specialist human rights radio show Speak up - Kōrerotia. This show is created by Sally Carlton.

What is the relationship between charities and funding? This episode's guests come at this question from different perspectives: Bridget Frame analyses government grant donations, and Catherine Low (Effective Altruism New Zealand) advocates for individuals to consider where they can most effectively donate. 

Part I: Defining 'charity' under NZ law; number of charities in New Zealand.

Part II: How much money are we talking, here?; the imperative to collect data to be able to gauge charities' effectiveness

Part III: What kind of organisations do people tend to support, and why?; errors in judgement and suggestions to avoid them; donation 'pressure tactics'; donating in New Zealand versus donating overseas
