Build your team
Are you ready to be part of a team that’s leading the fight for change? As a canvass director, that’s what you’ll do. You'll recruit staff and supporters, raise money, train activists and mobilize thousands of people to take action for groups working to save the environment, protect public health and more. If you're ready to build people power for great groups and make an impact on important issues, then you could be ready to be a canvass director with Fund for the Public Interest.

Deliver people power
We all want to make a difference. But wanting change, or hoping for it, or even passionately arguing for it isn’t enough. If we want to see real progress, we need to do more. When change does happen, the president or the governor usually gets the headline. Yet, the real action takes place behind the scenes, with hundreds or thousands or even millions of people across the country making their voices heard through petitions, emails, donations and meetings. That’s people power, and that’s what you’ll build with Fund for the Public Interest.

Make change happen
We’ve been running grassroots campaigns across the country since 1982. Over the last 30 years, we’ve worked on behalf of U.S. PIRG, Environment America, and others on a wide range of issues in all parts of the country. Our canvassers have gathered more than 20 million petition signatures, and we’ve raised more than $500 million to help these groups win their campaigns.
