Talk-amphilrev offers email list for all 'in house' fund development professionals

The American Philanthropy Review is offering ‘talk-amphilrev’, an unmoderated e-mail discussion list for “fund development professionals. It is designed to be a ‘big tent’ list for a wide variety of people interested in fundraising.

The e-mail list is designed to be “a superset” of other e-mail discussion lists that focus on specialist areas such as GIFT-PL, CFRNET, FUNDLIST, GRNTWRK, GIFT-MGT, and ARNOVA.

It is open to fundraisers whether they are engaged in planned giving, prospect research, grant-seeking, campaign drives, special events, nonprofit management or other areas. “Professional fundraising and campaign consultants are invited to participate” as well.

Unlike other lists, “tasteful commercial postings are not only tolerated, they are welcome.” The list’s owners say: “we believe that there is an essential and beneficial link between the for-profit and the non-profit sectors.”

The email list is managed using Majordomo software.

To subscribe to the list send an e-mail to with the following command in the body of your e-mail messages:
