ACN Guest Blogging Guidelines

Interested in contributing to the ACN blog? ACN accepts member guest posts that provide useful and actionable information for nonprofit organizations.

Successful contributions are comprehensive posts that offer nonprofits knowledge, inspiration and insight as well as actionable takeaways.

Please see guidelines below and submit your post accordingly. Posts will be reviewed by the ACN Blog Coordinator before posting.

General blog guidelines:

  • Minimum of 500 words
  • Include proper attribution of any data, quotations or outside content
  • Focus on an area of your expertise and offer nonprofits specific steps or actionable advice that will help them solve a problem or achieve a goal
  • Use the blog as an opportunity to provide thought leadership that highlights your expertise—avoid directly promoting your services
  • Content must not have been previously posted, although you are welcome to repost on your own site after publication
  • Blogs will only be accepted from current ACN members in good standing

Finished blogs are welcome, but please consider emailing a pitch first.

How to submit your post:

Please email ACN Blog Coordinator Liz Duffrin at with the following:

  • Your idea or pitch (or full post as a Word Doc)
  • Short author bio (50 words max.)
  • Headshot (min. 350 px)
