The Fund for the Public Interest
Earn $3000-$5000 for the summer working on real world issues and gaining real world experience with the Fund.
The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.
We’ve helped to pass landmark healthcare reform, a law that adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the national hate crime list, and worked to achieve the first ever nationwide standards for mercury pollution from power plants-all while building valuable leadership skills.
Currently, we have paid positions for campaign staff in Cambridge. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.
As a member of our staff, you will fund-raise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.
