Use or Reprint Articles

The Grassroots Fundraising Journal Reprint Permission Policy applies to all articles published in the Journal as well as other publications put out by GIFT, including content on this website.   Because authors retain copyright of their articles, in some cases we need to obtain their permission for you to reprint them. Use or distribution of printed, photocopied or electronic versions of articles within your organization, at Board meetings, or at small seminars for which no fee is being charged is permitted free of charge. Please indicate the source clearly on each copy, using the following text:

Reprinted with permission from GIFT • 

If you wish to reproduce articles in quantities of 25 or more, use an article in a class or training requiring participants to pay a fee, reprint an article in a publication, or post an article on a web site (please note that we rarely grant permission for this type of request), you must obtain explicit permission. We typically charge a reprint fee per article in these cases and ask that you include the following text clearly on the front of each copy:

Reprinted with permission from GIFT •

  • Article or excerpt you wish to reprint (include title, author, and issue in which article appears).
