Welcome back to the Philanthropy Journal of North Carolina.
To better reflect our focus, Nonprofitxpress has changed its name.
Launched two years ago, we continue to deliver electronic news about philanthropy and the nonprofit world – from giving and fundraising to technology and social enterprise.
Our new name simply returns us to our roots: In 1993, the corporate foundation of The News & Observer – the daily newspaper in Raleigh, N.C. — launched the Philanthropy Journal of North Carolina, a monthly newspaper that reported on nonprofits, foundations, corporate giving, fundraising and volunteerism in our state.
The Philanthropy Journal of North Carolina – a print newspaper — was discontinued at the end of 1998 after evolving into the Philanthropy News Network, an online publication that at the time had a national focus.
After creating and editing both publications, I went to work for the A.J. Fletcher Foundation in Raleigh. In February 2000, we launched Nonprofitxpress, an online publication reporting on philanthropy and nonprofits in North Carolina, throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Our mix of local news with coverage of technology and innovation in managing nonprofit organizations and philanthropic assets has attracted thousands of readers.
We are proud of our digital publication, and equally proud to revive the name of a pioneering North Carolina newspaper.
To make it even easier for readers to use the Philanthropy Journal of North Carolina, we no longer require you to register or log onto our Web site. We do invite new readers to voluntarily share information about themselves – information that we will keep private and use only in the aggregate to give advertisers a composite picture of our readership.
Please note our new Web address – www.philanthropyjournal.org — and let us know how we can do an even better job of delivering online nonprofit news that keeps you connected.
