NPQ envisions an active democracy—fully grounded in human rights, economic and social justice, racial equity, and thriving communities. Our mission is to foster an active, engaged and sometimes disruptive civil sector.
NPQ uses a range of media channels to help advance critical conversations that can refine nonprofit and social movement policy and practice. In our work, we seek to be a challenging voice that helps to advance conversations in the sector, especially, as is too often the case, when they are “stuck.”
We consciously seek out a wide range of voices. In addition to the work of NPQ editors and staff, we rely heavily on the contributions of volunteer writers, contributors, and advisers, who push us to think about ideas in new ways.
The Nonprofit Quarterly, also known as NPQ, is a nonprofit magazine publication which provides research-based articles and resources to educate the nonprofit sector. The publication focuses on management, fundraising practices, philanthropy, and governance/board management.
The Quarterly was originally founded, published and edited by David Garvey in 1994, as the New England Nonprofit Quarterly, as a regional learning magazine for New England nonprofit practitioners. The Nonprofit Quarterly launched as a national print journal in the winter of 1999, and now also publishes daily content online. The current editor-in-chief of NPQ is Ruth McCambridge, who led the transition of the Quarterly to its national format.
The Nonprofit Quarterly magazine was incubated by Third Sector New England until 2006, "when it spun off as an independent publication."
