New Faces of Fundraising
The Greater Cincinnati Chapter of AFP, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, and Interact for Health have partnered to present an innovative recruitment program for students interested in non-profit fundraising called New Faces of Fundraising.
Fundraising is one of the most rewarding careers imaginable and it was named one of the top 30 careers in the coming decade by US News and World Report. It’s a career where you can make a profound impact on the causes you care about each day.
The mission of New Faces of Fundraising is simple: We want to increase the number of diverse individuals intentionally entering the field of non-profit fundraising. The composition of our nation’s population is changing dramatically and, in turn, we want to increase the number of trained and qualified fundraisers to meet the growing need. We want to be proactive in serving the new and diverse donors of the future.
New Faces is unlike any other philanthropy program in Greater Cincinnati. Sponsored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF), and Interact for Health (I4H) participants will receive:
- Unprecedented access to professionals in the non-profit industry
- Free “Fundamentals of Fundraising” Training (a seven-topic master class in fundraising)
- A complimentary membership to the Association of Fundraising Professionals
- A paid 200 hour summer internship at a local non-profit
Ultimately, they’ll be able to leverage this training and hands-on experience to secure their first job in the non-profit sector in the Cincinnati area!
We are currently accepting participant applications. Applications are due March 24, 2017 by 11:59 PM.
