NPQ is a leading national nonprofit publication that covers civil society—that is, nonprofits, social movements, and philanthropy. We’ve been publishing a quarterly print magazine since 1999 and online since 2006.

If you have an article or pitch, write the corresponding desk and tell us why we should run it. If you don’t hear back from us within two weeks, please understand we are overwhelmed with the volume of submissions we get, and that we wish you luck placing it elsewhere.

Pitches should not exceed 200 words. We generally publish articles of 1,500 to 3,000 words, but this is not a rigid rule; hyperlink citations are preferred over footnotes.

We want: clear, direct narratives or case studies with strong points of view and analysis aimed at our audience of social movement organizers, activists, nonprofit leaders and researchers, and foundation officers.

We especially want: articles and pitches covering one or more of our four justice areas—economic, racial, climate, and health justice—as well as leadership, management, and philanthropy. If your article or pitch is a perfect fit for one of current newsletters—Health Justice, Race + Power, Economic Democracy, Climate Justice, and Leadership—please state that in your message.
