The Philanthropist Journal publishes news and analysis, in English and French, by emerging and established writers – journalists, subject experts, and sector partners. Some have worked with us for a long time; others are new to our (web)pages. As our coverage of the charitable and non-profit sector evolves, we seek a range of perspectives and voices from across Canada to share engaging stories that build community and instigate discussion, dialogue, and debate. Hundreds of talented people have helped create our journal over the years; the contributors featured below are just a few of them. (See our contributors’ guidelines.)
