There are people in every sector who have the knack for forging connections.
They’re plugged in to the ideas that are percolating above and below the surface of things. If you are new to the field, they’ll point you to the important conversations that are taking place. They’ll know just which parties to bring together to move your project forward, or to get your next one started.
We’re putting them all on a list. A realLIST for which we are inviting your nominations.
This isn’t the first Generocity RealLIST — in 2017 we published a civic tech RealLIST — but it is the first that will look at folks from across the full spectrum of the nonprofit sector.
We’ll bring you connectors who are involved in philanthropy and fiscal sponsorship organizations, social impact investing and nonprofit service providers; folks engaged in social enterprise, community organizers, activists and mission-driven folks who shape what we talk about and with whom.
These aren’t necessarily the most powerful people in the sector, but they are among the most influential and consequential (even if they might not describe themselves as such).
If you are familiar with our sister site Technical.ly, you will know that the idea of the RealLIST did not originate with us. Technical.ly has published an annual RealLIST Startups, and last year published its inaugural RealLIST Engineers. This year (in just a few days, in fact) it will be publishing a tech-centered RealLIST Connectors for each of its markets — Philly, Delaware, Baltimore and DC — full of people who make the “community tick,” in Technical.ly Managing Editor Julie Zeglen‘s words.
With your help via nominations, Generocity’s RealLIST won’t be far behind.
Who’s connecting the area’s nonprofit sector? Submit up to 10 names, with titles and organizational affiliations, plus any comment about why they should be acknowledged as connectors, via this contact form by EOD Wednesday, June 3:
