For more than 30 years, Hilborn Charity eNEWS has provided a media platform for nonprofit leaders to access news, trends, tips and analysis of developments in the fields of fundraising and nonprofit management.

This work has been made possible thanks to both our committed subscribers and trusted contributors. Through the years, publishing models have changed. The need for fresh, informed, passionate voices has not.

Consider this an invitation to join the conversation as a writer/contributor for Hilborn Charity eNEWS. Previous publishing experience is not a prerequisite.

Editorial Guidelines

Hilborn Charity eNEWS publishes original articles written by experienced professionals in finance, fundraising, volunteer management, board development, marketing, communications, human resources, governance and strategic planning. As an independent, objective publication it publishes educational articles that do not promote particular products, suppliers, agents or consultants. Contributors are welcome to re-publish or re-purpose their content after the date that Hilborn publishes it.

Readers include professional fundraisers, senior executives for whom fundraising is one of many responsibilities, board members from charitable organizations, and consultants and suppliers to the charitable sector. Writers can assume that readers are familiar with the basics of fundraising, governance and marketing/communications. Most of our audience is Canadian.
