A Fundraising Copywriter's Opportunity Goldmine
AWAI Member Lisa Sargent has a recent discovery to share with copywriters in the fundraising niche. It's the website at http://www.idealist.org/ .
This website lists jobs, many from smaller organizations, a great starting point for new copywriters. But it also lists over 67,500 organizations worldwide. These organizations may not have jobs listed, but they are potentially an even more valuable starting place for finding groups you'd like to write for.
Once you register, you can click the "Find" tab. A form comes up where you put in keywords, choose from a focus list, and input what you're interested in (including the language of the postings).
I put in "hunger, children and youth, English" and came up with 74 hits. I clicked on the top result and got the organization's mission, its website address, and – most important – the name of the contact person.
Registration is free, so sign up and explore.
