What this job is about
The old adage says that to give is human, but you'd be surprised at how hard it is to part people with their hard-earned cash. Enter the fundraiser: A person that has a knack for getting people to open their wallets for the right cause. It's the ideal job for someone who is both personable and persuasive – but having a passion for your cause doesn't hurt either. By arranging for events, calling potential donors, coordinating charity auctions and using online methods for fundraising, you'd be in charge of getting people to believe in and donate to an important cause – hello, warm, fuzzy feelings.
