Fund for the Public Interest Careers and Employment
Fund for the Public Interest is a national, nonprofit organization that runs campaigns for America’s leading environmental and public interest organizations. We launched the Fund in 1982 to help find ways to engage people on the most pressing problems of our day and turn that support into solutions. And now we run the nation’s largest and most effective – more...canvassing and telephone membership operation. Our canvassers and callers talk to people one-on-one and through those interactions help make thousands, sometimes millions of people’s voices heard, through petitions, emails, small donations and meetings. That’s people power, and that’s what it takes to make a difference for the environment, for our democracy, and more.
We work alongside groups such as U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Environmental Action and Fair Share on a wide range of campaigns, including reducing global warming pollution, getting big money out of politics, protecting public health by keeping our antibiotics safe and effective, and investing in early childhood education. Right now we're running Environment American campaign to Save the Bees and partnering with U.S. PIRG on a campaign to ban Roundup for public health.
Whether you’re a canvass director, telephone outreach project director, caller or canvasser, you’re an integral part of a group committed to building a strong campaign to win on the real challenges and problems we face. – less
