Clear the Shelters Encourages Local Adoption this August to Help Find Pets Their Forever Homes

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/0t7U5gFKIW4 One of the few bright spots of the pandemic was that so many shelter animals were adopted and given loving homes. However, in 2022 many shelters across the country are at capacity due to more animals entering than leaving. This is quickly becoming one of the most critical years for animal welfare and shelter adoptions. What can be done to address this problem? Hill’s Pet Nutrition is proud to return as the national sponsor of Clear the Shelters – NBCUniversal Local’s nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign that encourages people to adopt from their local shelters to find loving, forever homes for pets across the country. The Clear the Shelters campaign, will be held during the month of August, has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes since its 2015 inception. Hill’s will be supporting local shelters, in all 50 states, with the nutrition and adoption resources needed to ensure that every pet has the best possible chance for adoption and success in their new home.

Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index Interest Increases Globally

Bloomberg

Originally posted on bloomberg.com. The number and diversity of companies that have applied to be included in the 2023 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) has risen sharply ahead of the September 30 deadline, Bloomberg announced today. Publicly traded companies voluntarily participate in the GEI, which analyses the performance of their diversity and equality policies compared to their peers. The 2022 GEI listing included 418 companies from 11 different sectors in 45 countries. This year, Bloomberg is already seeing an increase in participants and the amount of details being disclosed over last year. GEI data so far shows: the number of accounts registered has risen 40% in the U.S., 39% in Europe, Middle East & Africa, 18% in Asia Pacific and three percent in Latin America new country participants include Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, and Pakistan while financial companies have traditionally led the list, now companies in the aerospace, pharmaceutical and technology sectors are participating ​“We are gratified to see so many more companies use the GEI to identify and strengthen their policies regarding equal pay and gender pay parity,” said Patricia Torres, Global Head of Bloomberg’s Sustainable Finance Solutions, which includes the GEI. “This transparency helps companies attract employees and gives investors the data they need to make decisions.” The GEI evaluates companies on five key pillars: Leadership and Talent Pipeline Equal pay and gender pay parity Inclusive Culture Anti-Sexual Harassment Policies External Brand For the 2023 evaluation, companies asked that Bloomberg add two other areas for exploration — LGBTQ+, race and ethnicity. Disclosure of this data will begin in the US and UK markets; these questions are optional and will not be scored. Companies participate voluntarily at no cost via the Bloomberg GEI website. The deadline for submission to the 2023 GEI is September 30, 2022. After submitting data, Bloomberg’s GEI team analyses the data and provides the company a scorecard based on the methodology. The team will review the results with the companies, so they know how they were scored and why, prior to the announcement of the GEI results in January 2023. “Companies can also use the GEI as an internal worksheet,” Torres added. “They can go online, without obligation, and see what the methodology entails. This is helpful in enhancing their gender-equality programs.” The Bloomberg GEI team held a webinar recently to explain the index and show companies how to participate. The webinar can be replayed via this link. About the GEI The standardised GEI reporting framework allows investors to compare how companies around the world are investing in women in the workplace, supply chain and communities in which they operate. Submitting data through Bloomberg’s gender reporting framework is voluntary and has no associated cost. The GEI is a benchmark index and is not used as a financial benchmark. The index is not ranked. Companies included in this year’s index scored at or above an overall value set by Bloomberg to reflect a high level of disclosure and overall performance across the five pillars of the framework.

DonorsTrust Givers Recommended $126 Million in First Seven Months of 2022

Donors Trust

The DonorsTrust community of givers during the first seven months of 2022 recommended more than $126 million to nearly 2,000 unique nationwide charities, defying historical rates of inflation and ongoing market volatility. While this 11% increase in YTD charitable dollars is significant, the total number of grant requests is up a whopping 49% compared to the same time period last year, suggesting the DonorsTrust client community is spreading more dollars among more institutions. As DonorsTrust President and CEO Lawson Bader says, “The sheer volume of grant requests so far from our community of givers is a reflection of the historic number of new accounts opened with DonorsTrust during 2021 and 2022. “What’s more, the pace at which our donors are meeting charitable needs is evidence of an engaged, serious community of givers that understands nonprofits need more financial assistance to make ends meet during these turbulent economic times.” Grant-making accelerates year-over-year despite market pressures In 2021, DonorsTrust paid out nearly $190 million to charities nationwide and—if giving continues to keep pace with the first half of 2022—it will end the year easily exceeding last year’s record-breaking total. DonorsTrust givers are stepping up to meet needs even though the S&P 500 has declined 20% YTD, the index’s worst six months in more than 50 years, according to CNBC. Other major stock indexes like the Dow and the Nasdaq were down 15% and 30%, respectively, in the first half of 2022. Donor-advised funds, also known as charitable-giving accounts, offer some shelter from the turbulent markets, however, as the charitable tool enables givers to claim an immediate tax deduction for each irrevocable donation made to their donor-advised fund, also known as a charitable-giving account. Donors respond to war in Ukraine, policy challenges at home During the first half of 2022—in partnership with the Atlas Network, a global network of think tanks that work to secure economic and personal freedom for all individuals—DonorsTrust’s donors responded to the Ukrainian crisis by raising more than $2.5 million and counting for life-saving supplies. DonorsTrust Vice President Peter Lipsett earlier this year interviewed Dr. Tom Palmer, executive vice president for international programs at Atlas Network, about the relief missions Palmer personally conducted, delivering supplies from a Polish base and coordinating travel for those fleeing Ukraine. “[Ukrainians] are committed, not merely to repelling [Russian] aggression, but to doing it because they want a free society. They want to live with freedom of speech and free markets and the ability to live your own life as you want and not as someone commands you to live,” says Palmer. In addition to funding relief efforts in Ukraine, clients’ giving in the first seven months of the year focused heavily on grant-making to policy organizations that preserve and protect civil liberties. More than $85 million in the first seven months of 2022 went to policy-focused charities, including State Policy Network, the Foundation for Government Accountability and the Constitutional Defense Fund. ### About DonorsTrust DonorsTrust is a mission-focused donor-advised-fund provider that primarily serves conservative and libertarian givers. Established in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) public charity, DonorsTrust is a community of donors devoted to creating a better future for all. DonorsTrust supports charities it believes protect constitutional liberties and strengthens civil society through private institutions and initiatives. Since its inception, DonorsTrust has granted nearly $2 billion to more than 4,000 charities in the arts and sciences, education, public policy, religion, and social services.
