A message from PNY President Ronna Brown, published originally in the New York PhilanthroPost Monthly February 2015 edition.
It’s been a little over six months since we relaunched our website and debuted the New York PhilanthroPost. Our goal with this service is to deliver timely sector news in an easy to absorb format as a way to increase information exchange among our members and improve public understanding of philanthropy. We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback we’ve received. What started as modest news collection effort and two monthly newsletters has blossomed into a full-fledged news operation and resource for the sector.
To remind you, you can receive the New York PhilanthroPost as an email daily, weekly or bi-monthly. Make sure you have signed up for the delivery you want. And we’re about to launch a promotional campaign to ensure government and nonprofit leaders – and really everybody who’s looking for the latest philanthropy news – are subscribing to it as well.
Another big goal for this year is to add new topic areas to those we already cover. Currently, we follow: women and girls, education, food, volunteerism, workforce development, education, juvenile justice and children, youth and family (which are aligned with existing local affinity groups) and general philanthropic sector news.
We want your help in choosing our new coverage areas! In order to ensure that we’re providing you with the news you want, we’re soliciting input on what areas we should focus on next. Keep your eyes open for a brief survey that will be hitting your inbox next week. If you don’t want to wait until then, feel free to send us an email with your thoughts, suggestions or questions.
We are grateful for all the feedback we’re received so far and for the contributions of critical information to the New York PhilanthroPost. Thank you!
