BBC Radio 4 - Money Box, Gift Aid
When you give to charity do you tick the box that says please Gift Aid this donation? If you do then George Osborne kindly adds 25% to the gift. So if you give £100 it is worth £125 to the charity. This scheme costs more than £1 billion a year. But should we subsidise charities? One woman who thinks not is Lady Moyra Bannister. She wrote to the Times recently to argue that all gift aid should be scrapped. Paul Lewis asked her why. // >> individual chooses where his tax goes to. // companies also receive tax relief for investment // HMRC needs to close tax loopholes, for that needs some more staff to investigate dubious charities that are used as tax avoidance schemes.

The Mozilla Foundation's Mark Surman sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss applying open source principles to philanthropy and Mozilla's initiative to boost global web literacy. // Internet. You don't need permission. (book by alexis ohanian, without their permission) // is there more trolling, bullying and hate? or is it because it's so much easier to surface and less friction and non-facing confrontation. // Internet = more agency. not just consuming. linear programming. // digital literacy! resources for teachers! >> digital-literacy.org !? //
