Must Read Publications for Nonprofit Professionals

Overwhelmed by the amount of information on the nonprofit sector? Stay up-to-date with these publications first. They are the best, most reliable, and most popular magazines/newspapers/journals out there. Many of these publications appear in print, but they also have online versions. And many provide email newsletters and blog posts. High profile publications like these also offer an abundance of multimedia information, including books. webinars, and conferences.

Blue Avocado

Blue Avocado is an online magazine fueled by a bimonthly newsletter designed to provide practical, tactical tips and tools to nonprofit leaders. A small but mighty team of committed social sector leaders produces the publication, enlisting content from a wide range of practitioners, funders, and experts. Subscriptions are free thanks to our donors, advertising support, and especially due to the critical support of our publisher, the Nonprofits Insurance Alliance, a group of cooperative 501(c)(3) nonprofit insurance organizations that provide stably-priced liability insurance and risk management resources exclusively to other 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

Blue Avocado publishes six times per year through an HTML newsletter delivered to more than 41,000 subscribers.
