Top 6 Nonprofit Job Sites for Fundraising Professionals

There are a lot of job sites out there, but these are my top 6 for fundraising professionals because they either focus specifically on fund development positions or are widely used for them.

Whether you are an experienced fundraiser or thinking about breaking into the field, these job sites will help you find the opportunities that are right for you.

1. Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) 

AFP is the leading association for fund development professionals. Aside from their job site, they offer quality professional development, networking and leadership opportunities for fundraisers at all levels. Find a chapter near you.

2. The Chronicle of Philanthropy 

In addition to their job site, The Chronicle of Philanthropy is the premiere magazine for fundraising. As a bonus, when you subscribe to their magazine, you also get a subscription to Grant Station, a research tool for grant funding opportunities.

3. Philanthropy News Digest (PND) 

Philanthropy News Digest (PND) is a service of the Foundation Center, an organization dedicated to advancing knowledge of fundraising to support the social sector. Foundation Center has regional chapters that provide resource libraries and professional development classes. In addition, they have a breadth of online resources, including the funding database Foundation Directory.

4. Craigslist 

Despite the risk of scams in other listing areas, Craigslist remains an effective and widely-used resource for nonprofit job listings, including fundraising jobs. Select your city/geography, then under the jobs heading select nonprofit sector, enter your search criteria and start exploring.

5. Work for Good (formerly Opportunity Knocks) 

Unlike many of the other resources, Work for Good is exclusively a job site for the nonprofit sector. With that singular focus, they have increased functionality, like saving your favorite listings.

6. Idealist.org 

While Idealist is not exclusively for fundraising or executive positions, it continues to be one of the top sites employers use to list fund development positions.

Periscope Tips and Resources for Nonprofits

This is it – my inaugural post! I have been meaning to get this blog going for some time now. I have so many ideas, experiences and great resources to share, I just couldn’t wait any longer.

Today I am excited to share some great tips and resources for Periscope and how nonprofits can use this new platform in unique and ground-breaking ways.

Ever wish you could engage your donors from far and wide? Ever feel like you can’t properly convey the power of your work? Periscope has the power to change this!

Periscope is truly a game-changer for nonprofits in telling (more like showing) their story and engaging with their supporters.

Here are some great resources I have found to help you start your Periscope journey.

Periscope for Nonprofits

This SlideShare presentation from Caroline Avakian (@CarolineAvakian) of Social Brite (@Socialbrite) is a great primer. It gives you the mechanics of how to use Periscope and 5 great ideas on how to leverage it for your nonprofit. The one I am most excited about is #1 – Live Streaming from the Field. So many of my clients could use this for powerful storytelling to donors and potential donors. Nothing brings your mission work to life more than seeing it in action.

Bloomerang (@Bloomerangtech) interviewed her for an episode of BloomerangTV that gives more depth on how nonprofits can use Periscope to engage supporters. She includes a review in her post Periscope for Nonprofits: A Quick Guide and Review, including “The Good” and “The Bad” in Periscope features.

Tips for Using Periscope

While Periscope is fairly new, there are early adopter nonprofits that you can learn from. Caroline Avakian did a follow-up post where she interviewed a nonprofit to learn about their experience – read the Case Study to gain insights into the do’s and don’ts.

Wayne Elsey (@wayneelsey) of Not Your Father’s Charity gives a good round-up of tips. Here are some take-aways from both…

  • Try it out first – Before you go live at your event or mission-moment, do a few dry runs without publicizing it. Get the hang of how it works. Then try it onsite.
  • Consider using a tripod – Figure out if using a tripod is needed, particularly if you are trying to broadcast a speaker at an event. It is very hard to keep your arms still for that long!
  • Get close to the action – When you test it out at your site, figure out how close you need to be to have a quality and engaging scope.
  • Promote it – Use social media to get the word out about your broadcast. You can create custom graphics for your website and social media to get the word out.
  • Prepare your speakers – The broadcast is live and interactive – prepare your broadcaster to be nimble on their feet and good at interacting with the audience as they comment.
  • Internet! – Make sure you have a solid internet connection.

While I certainly don’t recommend that nonprofits go join every new social network, Periscope is one that I think has huge potential. I can’t wait to see how nonprofits get creative with it.

Is your nonprofit using Periscope? Tell me how in a comment.

Do you know of other nonprofits using it? Tell me about it.

Happy Scoping!
