PhilanthropyNYU: A New Journal About the Critical Issues in Philanthropy

By BlackGivesBack NY Contributor Akira Barclay

Social Media and Technology are quickly gaining an increased presence in our everyday lives. They have become the major tools that we use to communicate individually as well as within our social and professional networks. As the impact of Social Media and Technology has reshaped how we communicate with one another, they have also become the vehicles through which we in the development world educate potential supporters and remain connected with those who share our cause.

The Fall Issue of PhilanthropyNYU will focus primarily on the examination and discussion of issues related to the emergence of new ideas in fundraising and the impact of Social Media and Technology on the profession. We seek feature articles, commentaries, interviews, and book reviews that will explore new approaches to fundraising and their implications for the future of fundraising. Submissions from students, faculty and fundraising professionals are particularly welcome.

All papers will be reviewed by the PhilanthropyNYU editorial staff. The deadline for submission of articles is October 5, 2010. Papers should follow PhilanthropyNYU guidelines, which can be obtained by emailing Submissions should be emailed as MS Word files to the Editor in Chief: Shelita G Bourgeois at
