A fundraiser is someone who plans and executes events and raises funds or other donations on behalf of an organization. Fundraisers generally work in the nonprofit sector, often among religious, social, civic or charitable organizations. Monies you raise as a fundraiser benefit the organization or cause for which you work. In addition to increasing an organization’s donations, fundraisers also work to increase awareness about an agency’s work, goals and financial needs.
Fundraisers are often the face of an organization, and interact with the general public and other potential donors regularly. Fundraising may be a great career choice for you if you enjoy social interactions and desire to make a difference in your community.
