Field Representative Responsibilities

Site Visits

A site visit is a half- to full-day visit to a partner organization to see the projects that they have listed on GlobalGiving. The organization is responsible for organizing the visit which may consist of a tour of a school, clinic, or local business, among other things! In most cases, Field Interns have the opportunity to meet with staff (teachers, nurses, trainers, etc.) and members of the participating community (children, parents, entrepreneurs, community officials, and more).

Site visits are also a great opportunity to strengthen GlobalGiving's relationship with partner organizations. We take advantage of these meetings to learn more about our partners' fundraising needs and to provide additional advice and support.

Following site visits, Field Interns complete a brief evaluation form and a blog-style postcard, which is emailed out to the project's donors.

Short-term Field Interns conduct 15 to 25 site visits over the course of three months. Long-term Field Interns typically conduct 40 to 60 site visits throughout their six months in the field.


Workshops are half-day events organized by Field Interns in major cities throughout the country or region to teach organizations about online fundraising and provide a space for knowledge sharing and networking. Field Interns are responsible for identifying a venue, arranging for light refreshments, creating the workshop presentation and curriculum, recruiting participants, and hosting the event.

Short-term Field Interns generally conduct four to six workshops throughout their three month trips. Long-term interns conduct six to ten workshops over the course of six months.

Strategic Partner Meetings

GlobalGiving works with similarly minded, well-networked organizations around the world to help spread the word about GlobalGiving and online fundraising and provide additional support to our existing partner organizations. Field Interns conduct relationship-building meetings with new and existing Strategic Partners during their time in the field.
