Entry-Level Greenpeace Fundraising Activist
Posted on May 17, 2019 by Greenpeace, Inc.
Greenpeace is the largest global and independent nonprofit advocacy organization. As part of our mission, we challenge the systems of power and privilege that destroy our environment and place disproportionate burdens on vulnerable communities. We welcome, value, and rely on a diversity of people, cultural experiences, and perspectives to defend the natural world and promote peace. We investigate, expose, and confront environmental abuse, champion environmentally responsible solutions, and advocate for the rights and well being of all people.
Our movement is inclusive, people-powered, and collective, and we are hiring Frontline Representatives (canvassers) to join our grassroots face-to-face fundraising and member recruitment program! Team members work together in communities to connect with members of the public and provide them the opportunity to donate and support the work Greenpeace does. We work to expand our outreach by contacting people in areas that directly experience the effects of issues like Climate Change and empower them to stand with us to demand change!
We canvass to recruit Greenpeace donors, advocate for the environment, and build the people power necessary to resist and work on campaigns to save our forests, protect our oceans, keep our communities free of toxic chemicals, and defend democracy under an Administration that clearly does not respect environmental or human rights. We've been campaigning for a green and peaceful future for over 45 years - and we're not stopping now. It's time to rise up like never before and fight for our communities, our coasts, and our climate!
