This isn’t your regular old website or an online version of a magazine.  This is a community of nonprofit professionals leveraging the sharing power of the internet to gain insights, tips and best practices across organization disciplines and sizes.

We feature blogs, articles, and interviews-all with the intent of inspiring you and helping you to help advance your cause and your career. (PS: It’s also an excellent platform for networking with peers and posting job openings, too!)

Our audience consists of Executive Directors, Directors of Development, IT Professionals, and Board Members, as well as Young Nonprofit Professionals who want to learn more about the sector and prepare for a future in nonprofit management.

Content includes interviews with Executive Directors, Directors of Development, Board Members, curated current news from for-profit and non-profit news sources, podcasts, discussions and webinars.

Third Sector Today is a woman-owned business.  Its mission is to provide a place for busy nonprofit professionals to develop professionally each day, by getting a glimpse of what’s going on beyond their office walls to gain insight and inspiration from peers.  (See the Contact page for information on becoming a Guest Blogger )
