Generocity is always looking for new voices to chronicle how social impact organizations are changing Philadelphia.
We also love to share the stories of the people behind that change. Some notable guest posts by community leaders we’ve published in recent months:
- “Don’t base your giving decisions on nonprofit overhead,” a manifesto on rethinking organizational health by Council for Relationships’ director of advancement, Valerie Johnson
- “‘We are the counter force,'” in which four heads of legal justice organizations (Keir Bradford-Grey of Defender Association of Philadelphia, Debby Freedman of Community Legal Services, Deborah Gordon Klehr of Education Law Center and Sue Vivian Mangold of Juvenile Law Center) tackle racial injustice in the wake of Charlottesville
- “4 ways be a better board member,” with how-tos by serial board member Jeremiah White
- “Nonprofit evaluation should be purposeful, feasible and sustainable. Here’s why,” in which ImpactED founder Claire Robertson-Kraft shares lessons from the inaugural Social Impact Collaborative
- “Why this local researcher is compelled to march for science in Philly,” an essay by now-Geek of the Year Marion Leary on her #MarchforSciencePHL efforts
Here are 3 reasons to write for Generocity:
From our Partners
1. Share your expertise.
You know your organization, your job, your field better than most. What have you learned? What should others know? How can the sector improve, and what are some actionable steps to get there?
2. Spread the word.
We can only cover so much. Have a cool event coming up? Want to offer Generocity readers a discount to your program? There’s a better chance your story will make it to print if you write it yourself. That said, your piece should still be interesting and insightful — tell me first why your event stands out. (Bonus points if it aligns with our editorial calendar!)
3. Change the narrative.
We’re particularly passionate about amplifying the voices of women, people of color and other underrepresented folks, so if that’s you, please reach out, even if you haven’t contributed professionally before.
Pitch us your ideas or just drop us a line letting us know you’re interested in writing for us and we’ll be in touch.
