A Generocity update, and our 2023 editorial calendar

Yes, we are still around, exploring how our community is impacted and how we can move the needle together.

Change is good. Sometimes hard, but part of life. There have been many changes in the philanthropic and social impact landscape at the local level over the past year.

And Generocity itself has gone through some changes, about which we’ll say more later. What we can say, however, is that we have been far busier behind the scenes than the last year of slower editorial output might suggest. In short, after seven years of stewardship by Technically Media, the publisher behind Technical.ly, I am taking on leadership of Generocity. I don’t know all of Generocity’s readers, but I’m a philanthropic sector veteran and a longtime Generocity contributor. I couldn’t be more excited to share with you what we have in store. Expect more in the coming months.

Until then, I’ll share that during this transition, I have taken the time to listen to many of you, our community — those who do the work, and those it impacted by it. From government and foundation leaders to nonprofit staffers and those they serve, we have learned how Generocity has supported you over the years and what you need now.

We’ve started this year back in the mix, beginning with the weekly newsletter format we kicked off last year. You’ll see even more of the reporting and storytelling that you came to expect from Generocity. For now, I’m proud to honor what has come before me, and also set our own path.

From our Partners

As we move through 2023, our editorial calendar will illuminate and challenge our local philanthropic landscape; hold its leadership, practices, and successes, its members, and our community accountable; while offering insights and resources to help you understand “how local policy impacts issues and the needs of the local community,” which leaders are effectively “working to influence problems and solutions in Philadelphia,” and what “resources” are available to support you and our community.
