The new year is upon us, which means it’s time for an all-new editorial calendar.
Generocity’s edit cal, as we call it internally, is a reporting series with monthly themes relevant to the Philly social impact community. The idea is to give ourselves an opportunity to dive deeper into 12 topics our community cares about (while still maintaining our regular diversity of coverage).
In 2018, we dedicated extra reporting to these topics, in chronological order: hiring, women in leadership, social entrepreneurship, accessibility, reentry and criminal justice, LGBTQ, sustainability, leaders of color, community development, impact investing, civic tech and volunteerism.
A few past themes are returning next year in some form, but our 2019 calendar is mostly new. Check it:
- JANUARY — Mental health
- FEBRUARY — Youth leadership
- MARCH — The ‘burbs
- APRIL — Media literacy
- MAY — The digital divide
- JUNE — Immigrant leaders
- JULY — The workplace
- AUGUST — Racial equity
- SEPTEMBER — Adult education
- OCTOBER — Generocity’s 10th anniversary (!!!)
- NOVEMBER — Social justice and the arts
- DECEMBER — Founders
You can expect a handful of profiles on folks doing the most within these sectors, guest posts from relevant experts and a whole bunch of longform reporting on trends, challenges and solutions.

For instance, stories publishing during March might focus on innovative collaborative work being done in Chester County, Bucks County, Delaware County, Montgomery County — areas we admittedly don’t cover enough. In February, we might publish a whole bunch of first-person by essays by young people involved in youth-serving organizations. “Founders” month might be profile-heavy, but it also might explore tips for avoiding founder’s syndrome.
And yep, it’s true: Generocity is coming up on 10 years of existence. We have a bunch of fun stuff in the works, but in October (roughly the time of launch in 2009), we’ll likely publish some version of an oral history. Stay tuned.
