The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has decided to stop publishing its quarterly magazine for members.
A total of 5,500 copies of Engage magazine, which was launched in 2008, were produced each quarter and distributed to NCVO members and subscribers.
The latest issue, dated spring 2011, will be the last, the umbrella body has confirmed.
Maurice McLeod, digital publishing manager at the NCVO, said the publication had been moved online because a survey had shown its members wanted more web-based services.
The NCVO has appointed an editor to oversee the new format.
McLeod said that stopping the printed publication had environmental benefits and would bring savings, but he declined to reveal how much.
"The main driver for moving the magazine online is that it is what members want," said McLeod.
"We want to make it more interactive, have more polls and have better links with social media – there are savings because we’re in hard times."
McLeod added that most of the online content would be available only to subscribers, although some would be free in order to promote the site.
