Build and lead a 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 build a campaign office from the ground up. You will hire your staff, recruiting as many people as possible for the campaign. You'll recruit supporters, raise money, train activists and mobilize thousands of people to take action — for the environment, for our democracy and for other important causes. We'll provide you with the training and the backup you need to manage a campaign, train your leadership team, and mobilize public support. 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.

Make change happen.

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.
