Creative Careers Job Round-Up: Development

Creative Careers Job Round-Up: Development

Do you want to be a breadwinner for an organization you love?

A job in development can be a great fit for someone who is passionate about writing, meeting new people, and supporting an organization in achieving its mission. There are many individual, institutional, corporate, and government donors out there; it’s up to those working in development to encourage giving by telling compelling stories.

Some people choose to gain development experience through formal education. Others might cultivate their grantwriting and fundraising skills by volunteering or taking advantage of professional development opportunities with organizations like the Foundation Center. If you’re interested in breaking into the field of fundraising and development, we’d recommend reading a previous NYFA Creative Careers article, How to Get a Job in Development.

Whether you see yourself helping to get a new non-profit off the ground, or supporting an established institution, NYFA Classifieds has an array of available opportunities for all experience levels.
