We are happy to accept unsolicited opinion articles and news pitches. Writers should familiarize themselves with our content before contacting our editorial staff. You can do so by subscribing to our newsletter, reading our essays and articles, and reviewing these guidelines carefully.
PHILANTHROPY DAILY provides authentic diversity of opinion and perspectives on the most important issues, persons, and ideas in the world of philanthropy. The site maintains a special focus on strengthening civil society and takes an active interest in what we term “philanthrolocalism” as an alternative philosophical foundation for philanthropy, suggesting that philanthropy’s primary purpose should be to increase opportunities for authentic human communion.
Thus, we feature content that highlights themes including the importance of rootedness; philanthropic efforts by local communities and associations; return to traditional charity and almsgiving; protection of philanthropic freedom; and honoring donor intent. Likewise, we are interested in exposing policies and practices that encourage excessive bureaucratic hurdles and regulations for nonprofits; close partnerships between philanthropy and big corporations, as well as philanthropy and the state; and sweeping efforts to effect change through big, global, and centralized means.
