Mystery of Encrypted Funding Alert Problem Solved!
Many of our patrons have reported to us that they have been receiving encrypted Funding Alerts the past two weeks. The encryption required a password that does not exist to open the Funding Alert.
We did not send them out to you encrypted, but our server decided to encrypt them for us anyway.
With the help of our IT folks here at the Department of State Health Services, the encryption problem has been solved and you should not receive any more.
Seems the State of Texas RFP numbers are now set up with three numbers / hyphen / two numbers / hyphen / four numbers or xxx-xx-xxxx. To our server, this is a Social Security number and must be encrypted.
And it did!
Please call Doug Jumper at (512) 776-7684 or Elaine Byrd at (512) 776-6483 or e-mail us at fundctr@dshs.state.tx.us if you ever have a problem, comment, suggestion, or complaint.
And again, we apologize for the encrypted Funding Alerts and appreciate your understanding!

Charitable Giving Grew 13 Percent in 2013, Atlas of Giving Estimates
Preliminary data collected by Atlas of Giving, a monthly analysis and forecast of charitable giving in the United States by sector, source, and state, suggest that charitable giving increased 12.9 percent in 2013.
Based on an algorithm that incorporates a range of economic, demographic, and event factors, the Dallas-based group that produces the Atlas estimates that charitable giving totaled $416.5 billion in 2013, up from $368.8 billion a year earlier — and the third straight year that charitable giving has increased since falling to $316.5 billion in 2009.
In 2013, according to the Atlas forecast, individuals accounted for about 75 percent of total giving, or about $310.8 billion, up from $276.6 billion in 2012; foundations accounted for 13.9 percent, or $57.8 billion, up from $48.7 billion; corporations accounted for 4.8 percent, or $20.1 billion, up from $18.4 billion; and bequests accounted for 6.7 percent, or $27.9 billion, up from $25.1 billion.
Among issue areas, giving to religious causes rose 8.6 percent in 2013, to $143.1 billion, even as its share of total giving fell slightly, from 36 percent to 35 percent. It was followed by giving to education, which was up 15.7 percent, to $68.2 billion. The forecast also estimates that giving to human needs/disaster services grew fastest in 2013, up 18.7 percent to $49.6 billion and accounting for 11.9 percent of all giving, while giving to health-related causes totaled $32.3 billion, up 10.8 percent on a year-over-year basis.

2. United States citizens, non-citizen nationals or permanent residents of the United States are eligible to apply.
3. Independent investigators at all stages of their career are eligible to apply. The usual ACS restriction to investigators within the first six years of their initial independent research appointment does not apply to this RFA.
PURPOSE: The American Cancer Society has issued a Request for Proposals designed to stimulate research that will generate new knowledge of the effects of the United States healthcare system structure and the role of insurance on both access to and outcomes of cancer screening, early detection, and treatment services.
Studies investigating how one or more factors affecting access and outcomes interact — such as insurance status, costs, capacity, personal characteristics, provider characteristics, components of the healthcare delivery system, and other known factors — are encouraged. Studies may be at the state, multistate, or national levels, or otherwise involve large populations.
Potential areas of investigation include but are not limited to how the structure and capacity of the healthcare system affects appropriate and timely access to cancer screening, early detection, treatment, and palliative care services; the provider and system factors that affect treatment patterns and quality of cancer care within the current healthcare systems; and the exploration of life course patterns across the entire spectrum of cancer care (from prevention and screening through diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and supportive/palliative care) by linking diverse data sources for broad patient populations.
