Fundraiser Career Path

If you’re passionate about an organization or a cause, then you’d probably be an excellent fundraiser. Fundraisers generally spend a large amount of their time persuading people to donate money to their organization.

Being a fundraiser doesn’t require additional education or classes. You’ve probably fundraised before, like when you had to sell coupon books for your elementary school or if you’ve ever started a GoFundMe page. Even just recruiting someone for a team project or to join your company is similar to fundraising. The best way to be a successful fundraiser is to work for an organization you’re passionate about.

Average annual salary: $49,698
