GlobalGiving Operations Fellow - Cohort 2021-2022
About the organization
GlobalGiving’s mission is to transform aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change.
We help fellow nonprofits access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to serve their communities. Since 2002, the GlobalGiving community has raised more than $500 million from 1 million donors for 27,000 projects in 170+ countries. Each of the nonprofits on GlobalGiving.org has been rigorously vetted and has committed to providing donors regular updates about how donations are put to work.
Fellowship Focus Areas
We have fellowship opportunities on four of our teams: Vetting and Grants, Disaster Recovery Network, Operations, and Business Partnerships. You are welcome to apply to multiple fellowships at https://apply.workable.com/globalgiving/, but please ensure that your application highlights why you are the best fit in that specific role.
The Operations Team (or Ops for short) builds and services the backbone of GlobalGiving and ensures tens of millions of dollars are dispersed across the globe each year. We are a close-knit team responsible for the accounting, finance and human resource functions of the organization, as well as supporting business intelligence and overarching strategic planning at GlobalGiving.
If you’ve got an analytical mind, an eye for detail, and a knack for knowing when the right question is more important than the right answer, we can’t wait to hear from you. We’re especially looking forward to meeting candidates who are excited to pick up projects and run with them! The Operations Fellow will:
Help fund community-led organizations all over the world. You’ll support the core financial operations of over $40M in contributions to organizations around the globe.
