I know what you meand - and I agree with your post, but one, small thing. Catherine is not a celebrity. She's a member of BRF, and while it comes with a big interest in her life/charity work, does not mean she's a celebrity.

She is a celebrity, not the entertainment sort, but she and everyone else in the BRF are still celebrities.

Why can't Kate help her patronage raise the money to stay afloat?
What is the point of having a Royal Patron?

She has raised money in the past with the Kings Cup, Place2Be which is The Art Rooms parent charity was a receiver of funds raised.

However 50K is what's needed for the art room to stay afloat, not by any means to prosper as it should. It's had financial trouble for years, which is why it merged with Place2Be, so there is something more than finances wrong with the model they are using to run it. None of which is a concern for Catherine.

The 50K seems to be pretty wrong

2people from that sector shine a bit of light on the issue

I hope it helps clear some question up, it did for me.

and this https://duchessofostergotlands.tumbl...kate-not-doing

Quote:
People really enjoy talking about the charity sector with no knowledge, huh? So let’s break it down:

- Kate isn’t patron of The Art Room and hasn’t been since January 2018. If you look at her pages on the royal website it is not listed amongst her patronages. This is because it merged with Place2Be in 2018 because it was having financial difficulties and is therefore a project of Place2Be, not a charity. Anyone who doesn’t know this should probably be written off immediately for not doing basic research

-Patrons have no legal role in their charities and cannot legally make decisions about what is and isn’t continued. They are not consulted about strategic decisions

-There have been discussions about how she could have raised the money etc etc. If you look at the accounts they were getting money in for The Art Room. It’s a trendy thing, there’s lots of funders out there for the arts. It’s not about not being able to make the money. It’s about sustainability and value for money. The Art Room is unfortunately an unsustainable model with low value for money. Let me explain how:

-The Art Room costs over £860,000 a year to run. Whatever other figures you’re seeing twirling about are not accurate. They may be the cost of running a reduced service in one location but The Art Room as it stands cost Place2Be £860,000 in their last set of independently audited accounts. That is a reduction in costs as before the merge it cost about £1.1 million to run The Art Room as a separate organisation. This figure will rise every year because of inflation and would only maintain the current level of provision. Expanding the service would increase the costs further

-In order for a service to be considered sustainable it either has to generate its own income or you have to have a diversified, secure funding pipeline. Even if one major donor came in and said they’d give £860k for it to continue that would not be considered good because what about the year after? Five years after? Ten? Twenty? It is poor practice to have a major, continuous project dependent on the whims of one donor. So even if The Royal Foundation had funded it- which they wouldn’t, they rarely commit that amount and they are venture philanthropists so they only fund projects until they’re considered sustainable- or one of Kate’s rich friends or the fandom (lol) they would still be in this position next year or the year after.

-Unfortunately The Art Room model is also low value for money. With that £860,000 they are in eight schools permanently and have offered some kind of service to 54 schools in total. To give you some perspective there are around 30,000 schools in England, Scotland and Wales. They are in less than 0.2% of schools. Those numbers are not good enough which is why they had to merge with Place2Be in the first place.

-The Art Room is not closing entirely, it’s just taking on a new model. As with many charity sector initiatives it is stepping away from providing one off services and moving towards training and dissemination. Generating income takes time and money. If you had the option to spend that time and money delivering face to face services to 54 schools or delivering training on your approach to school staff in hundreds of schools across the nation- staff who can then take it to their own local context and adapt it for their school’s needs- which would you pick? There is only one right answer.

Catherine releases video at the start of Children's Mental Health week. It ends with a reminder for parents/guardians to care for their own mental well being.

Tomorrow is the start of Children's Mental Health Week - an opportunity to remind ourselves not just how important our own children's mental health is but also parental wellbeing too. We look forward to sharing more about the year's theme of expressing yourself this week.

While I do believe that members of the various royal families do make private donations to their patronages/charities, their primary role is to bring public awareness to the organizations and to assist with fundraising. They're not meant to be a sole or primary source of funding. Keep in mind that some of the organizations do receive taxpayer funding ie: NHS hospitals.


This link to the British Monarchy's official website explains the role of royal patrons in the United Kingdom.


https://www.royal.uk/charities-and-patronages-1


Quote:
The Queen and other Members of the Royal Family lend their names and much of their time to many different charities and organisations. Currently, over 3,000 organisations list a member of the Royal Family as their patron or president. These range from well-known charities such as the British Red Cross to new, smaller charities like the Reedham Children's Trust, to regiments in the Armed Forces
Quote:
Having a Royal patron or president provides vital publicity for the work of these organisations, and allows their enormous achievements and contributions to society to be recognised.

Update on the success and increase in use by Early Years, primary and now secondary schools with the Mentally Healthy Schools initiative.


The Duchess's Mentally Healthy Schools Initiative Expands - The Rumble Online - Opinions, Movies, Travel, Tech, Books and so much more!


Quote:
T
he Duchess of Cambridge’s ‘Mentally Healthy School (MHS)’ initiative is expanding just in time for when students return to school in England next month. The valuable resource, run by both the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and the Duchess’s mental health brainchild Heads Together, will expand the service to offer support and resources to secondary school students and further education colleges. The resource-based website already provides vital support to primary schools and the Early Years sector.
The expansion will go live in March – a move designed in response to the announcement that all school students in England will return to the classroom on March 8th, after the nationwide lockdown forced the majority of them to be home-schooled.
