If you are looking to get into fundraising, well, I salute you! I’ve helped lots of people get their first fundraising jobs, as well as helping people move on up in their fundraising careers.

I have lots of posts and videos about how to do this. Basically I love helping women ask for more. And it’s fun. Whether asking for more in your salary, in your organization, or with benefits that you deserve, I believe in nonprofit employee justice and work for this each year with my writing, events, and coaching. This year we’re doing a Career Conference, and if you’re reading this after the event, you’ll be able to get the recordings. We’re also doing the Party at the End of the Patriarchy, so that we can question more of our nonprofit structures.

Here’s what Fundraising Careers look like in 2022.

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, we are seeing a fast growing industry that pays well.
