With the goal of better representing philanthropy and nonprofits operating in communities across North Carolina, Philanthropy Journal (PJ) is pleased to announce its new Editorial Advisory Board

Ten individuals (see list below) engaged in diverse nonprofit and philanthropic endeavors have agreed to serve as PJ’s “eyes and ears” on the ground in their respective communities. Their tips and insights on exceptional grassroots advocacy already have created connections for articles you will see in coming weeks and months. We hope to add more members soon in areas where the board currently does not have a presence and with agencies that provide services to under-represented people in need.

PJ also has announced a new Editorial Calendar with topical monthly themes. News, resource articles and Inside Philanthropy blog posts will inform readers on a broad spectrum of relevant topics. Trend Spotter surveys, monthly webinars and occasional hands-on workshops also are in the works.

We will launch in September with a focus on education, followed by health in October and, in observance of National Philanthropy Day, philanthropy and corporate giving in November. There are a few TBA’s right now, but the month-by-month list is available online.

We welcome story ideas from our dedicated readers as well as guest submissions by writers who focus on topics of relevance to the nonprofit sector. Please review our submission guidelines here.

PJ’s Editorial Calendar also is intended to be of value to organizations and businesses that seek to connect their message and services with an interested audience. PJ welcomes advertising support from entities that serve the sector throughout the year, as well as those that have an inherent connection to our monthly topic.
