GlobalGiving’s mission is to transform aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change. We believe that good ideas come from anyone, at any time, or from anywhere, and we’re committed to supporting the people who have the best ideas about how to change their own communities.
As the world’s first global crowdfunding platform, in 2002 we set in motion a virtuous cycle of good. We work with nonprofits, individual donors and companies to enhance the effectiveness of locally driven organizations in hundreds of communities. To date, we have supported more than 25,000 projects with more than $449 million of funding from over 1 million donors across 170 countries around the world—and we’re still growing!
GlobalGiving is seeking applicants to our Fellows Program to help further our mission and ambitious growth plans. Fellows will have a unique opportunity to learn how a thriving, international NGO operates through practical, hands-on experience with the nuts and bolts of our operations and ample opportunities to explore the broader field of development.
We have fellowship opportunities on seven of our teams: Vetting and Grants, Disaster Recovery Network, Program, Operations, Business Partnerships, Marketing and Communications, and Strategic Initiatives. You are welcome to apply to multiple fellowships, but please ensure that your application highlights why you would be excellent in that specific role.
The program is a highly selective, full-time service year that will challenge and inspire you, and will require hard work and dedication. You will have the opportunity to explore various areas that interest you, so you can capitalize on your experience. You’ll be a vital contributor to our team—not getting coffee or filing papers all day long.
In return, we offer a $37,600 salary, health and dental insurance, professional development funding, tons of learning opportunities, ample delicious goodies in our Free Food Spot, and an amazing experience!
Program team works directly with our nonprofit partners all over the world, helping them tell their unique stories through our innovative platform and strengthening their capacity to fundraise, communicate, and deliver social impact.
The Program Fellow will play a lead role organizing crowdfunding campaigns and support GlobalGiving’s nonprofit community in their fundraising journey. From hosting live webinars with women empowerment leaders from around the world, to introducing an education nonprofit in Cameroon to their first-ever crowdfunding experience, to puzzling on how to implement participatory grantmaking globally, this position puts you at the center of philanthropy and fundraising.
In addition, the Program Fellow will have the opportunity to:
