DSHS Office of EMS Trauma Systems Finalizing Funding Decisions, Calculating Distribution Formulas for Fiscal Year 2018
The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Office of EMS\Trauma Systems is finalizing funding decisions and calculating the distribution formulas for fiscal year (FY) 2018 EMS Allotment/Allocation of the EMS and Trauma Care System Account (911 funds), the Emergency Medical Services, Trauma Facilities, and Trauma Care System Fund (1131 funds) and the Designated Trauma Facility and Emergency Medical Services Fund (3588 funds). The funding formulas for the EMS Allotment/Allocation includes a trauma service area’s geographic size, its population, and the number of eligible emergency healthcare runs (trauma AND medical) submitted to the Texas EMS/Trauma Registry.
The Office of EMS/Trauma Systems has decided to offer EMS Providers the option of submitting an affidavit to attest that a good faith effort was made to submit calendar year (CY) 2016 data to the Texas EMS/Trauma Registry and reconcile potential discrepancies between emergency healthcare runs recorded by individual EMS providers during CY16 and the number of emergency healthcare runs reflected in the Texas EMS/Trauma Registry. The attached Excel spreadsheets contain the Texas EMS/Trauma Registry, Emergency Healthcare Run Reports which will be used to calculate EMS Allotment/Allocation funds. This list is NOT an indication of your eligibility to receive funds. If your reported runs lack required data elements or include incompatible format your run data may be inconsistent with the Emergency Healthcare Run Reports.

Grantmaking for HIV/AIDS Totaled a Record $680 Million
Global philanthropic support for HIV/AIDS initiatives totaled a record $680 million in 2016, a report from Funders Concerned About AIDS finds.
According to the report, Philanthropic Support to Address HIV/AIDS 2016, funding for efforts to address HIV/AIDS increased two percent on a year-over-year basis, driven by significant increases from ViiV Healthcare (United Kingdom), Aidsfonds (Netherlands), and the Elton John AIDS Foundation (United States and UK), as well as a year-over-year increase of $41 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. On a less positive note, the study found significant declines in support from the majority of funders, with the total for funders with data in both years falling from $477 million to $431 million when excluding contributions from the Gates Foundation.
"Once again, the majority of philanthropic resources allocated to fighting the epidemic is concentrated among a handful of donors," said FCAA executive director John Barnes. "The top twenty funders accounted for 87 percent of 2016 resources. In fact, without the two largest funders — [the] Gates Foundation and Gilead Sciences, which, together, represent over half of all funding in 2016 — total giving to HIV/AIDS among all other private funders decreased five percent."
The report also found that the top recipient of country-level philanthropic funding for HIV/AIDS initiatives was the U.S., which attracted a record $175 million in HIV/AIDS-related funding, and that funding to low- and middle-income countries totaled $162 million, up 11 percent from 2015. As bilateral funding from donor governments continues to fall, the report notes, the philanthropic sector can play a critical role by supporting pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), advocacy and human rights, key populations (men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers, transgender populations), capacity building, and leadership development.

More Than Half of Americans Made a Donation in Past Year
More than half (55 percent) of Americans made a monetary donation to a charity, gave to a religious organization, and/or sponsored someone in the past twelve months, a report from the Charities Aid Foundation finds.
Based on a survey conducted in July, the report, Charitable Giving in the USA 2017, found that 47 percent of survey respondents had given money to a nonprofit, 37 percent had given to a religious organization, and 33 percent had given directly to a person in need at some point during the past twelve months, while 23 percent had sponsored someone for a charity fundraising event. Another 33 percent reported that they had donated food or goods to a charity or religious organization, 24 percent said they had volunteered for a religious organization, and 23 percent said they had volunteered for a nonprofit, while 32 percent said they had neither donated money nor volunteered. Survey respondents age 55 and older (70 percent) and those with household incomes of at least $80,000 (78 percent) were the most likely to have given or donated.
The survey also found that 37 percent of respondents said they had given in support of religious organizations, followed by giving to help the poor (32 percent) or children in need (27 percent). Older Americans were more likely to give in support of medical institutions (12 percent vs. 8 percent overall), while those between the ages of 25 and 34 were more likely to give to programs for disabled people (24 percent vs. 15 percent). According to the report, among those who had given in the past year, the overall median amount was about $100, while the median for those with household incomes of less than $40,000 was $50.
In terms of their reasons for giving, "I care about the cause" was the most commonly cited (58 percent), followed by "I want to help people less fortunate than me" (41 percent), "I trust the organizations I donate to" (39 percent), "It makes me feel good," and "I realize I can make a difference" (both 38 percent).

WHEN: January 17, noon to 1 pm.

DESCRIPTION: Learn tips, tricks, and best practices to avoid death by PowerPoint and never deliver a boring presentation again. 
Too many call their slides 'The Presentation'. Many even build slide decks, filling in various details and data before focusing on the audience, what you want the audience to do, and what you want them to remember. The solution is simple, it's easy, it will save you time, and raise your stature, but it's not for the faint of heart because you can't read your PPT slides. But the 'bar' is also very low. How many bad presentations have you seen? What an opportunity for you. Your opportunity is to have your audience leave the room thinking, if not saying, 'Wow that was good'.
