Mark Hrywna


Mark has been with The NonProfit Times since 2005, where he’s become a sucker for stories about nonprofit governance, transparency and finances. His penchant for spreadsheets makes the annual NPT 100 report akin to Christmas morning, spread out over several months.

Before joining NPT, Mark was in charge of about a dozen weekly newspapers in suburban New Jersey — where he’s lived his entire life with the exception of a four-year sojourn in central New York to earn a bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York-Oswego. After more than a decade in the same keeper league, he finally celebrated his first fantasy baseball championship in 2013.
