As of Wednesday, April 5, Generocity.org is now fully owned and operated by Monique Curry-Mims, founder and principal of Civic Capital.
Under its new leadership, Generocity will move toward solutions-oriented journalism, with a renewed commitment to understanding and reporting on the impact of nonprofit work and philanthropy in the community.
It's an effort in which Curry-Mims is no stranger, as she has written for the publication for nearly three years.
Founded in 2009 by Sandra Baldino, Generocity has been committed to promoting the work of nonprofits and philanthropy throughout the Philadelphia region.
It was previously published since 2015 under Technical.ly and led by publisher Chris Wink, who is handing the reigns over to Curry-Mims.
“We’re thrilled to transition Generocity to Monique,” said Wink in a statement. “Her vision for the future of Generocity is exactly what the organization needs at this moment, and we’re excited to see Generocity’s impact under her leadership.”
The organization will anchor its work in the community and work closely with all community members to gather information, build connections, and promote accountability.
Generocity will focus on monthly themes that take audiences on an action journey that informs them about the issues, what is being done or not being done, and what community-driven solutions should be considered.
“I believe Generocity is the heart of the local philanthropic sector. It's where leaders and community members come together to understand the issues they're working towards,” said Curry-Mims.
It’s her vision for Generocity to play a critical role in bringing the philanthropic sector and the community together to expand its support for each other.
To aid this effort, Generocity will soon launch a new video journalism series called “Centering,” which will bring together a cross-section of key community members to discuss pressing issues and the role they can play in a collaborative solution.
In June 2023, Generocity, in partnership with Every Voice Every Vote, will host an event called “Advance” Every Vote,” which will bring together community members and leaders to learn from and connect with each other, with a focus on accountability and informational gathering.
The event will aim to equip all leaders in the field with enough knowledge to make informed decisions and identify the most important issues facing the Philadelphia community, as well as the policies that the next mayor should focus on in their first 100 days.
“We’re excited to expand our content division and continue to deliver insights and best practices that move the needle,” said Curry-Mims.
