The Nonprofit Quarterly’s daily newswire would be impossible without the work of NPQ’s newswire team, which is spread across the country, reflecting many different fields of practice. They help us sense what trains are headed towards us from a distance, when the tectonic plates are shifting, and when we may need to erect a yellow warning light on a dangerous corner that needs to be turned.
This is a part of NPQ’s collaborative journalism program. Remember that they are all volunteers, giving their time to you through us, and so we thought you might want to get to know them through their motivations.
The best way to appreciate them and acknowledge their work is by commenting on their work. Get involved in our dialogue and knowledge development!
