Summer Campaign Jobs for an Environmental Nonprofit

Our Mission:

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national, non-profit organization that runs campaigns for America’s leading environmental and social change 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. By having face-to-face one-on-one conversations we give thousands, sometimes millions of people the opportunity for their voices’ to be heard, through petitions, emails, small donations and meetings. That’s people power, and that’s what it takes to make real change.
