Reboot 2022

Reboot 2022

There is a revolution happening in global philanthropy.  A revolution, not an evolution.  New ideas are pushing out old ideas. Philanthropy Journal (known as PJ) is rebooting to be part of that revolution.   While the decades of experience gleaned from telling stories on the historic platform is a source of knowledge and inspiration, the new PJ is part of the revolution...not just an evolution of the previous generation’s journal. PJ’s reboot will be supplied by next gen storytelling and ideas about the future of doing good in our world and local communities. PJ will also have a companion print quarterly called Philanthropologist.   Don’t be a bystander to the stories, create them. Be a philanthropologist.   Quote: “We’re not changed by our society, but we forget to change ourselves.”
