When is the last time that you felt that you made a difference? For me it was yesterday when I got an e-mail about how a number of recent grads landed jobs with an employer I featured a few months back. Hopefully it wasn’t too long ago for you either, but if it was, you might want to check out Citizen Effect. They’re a Washington, DC based non-profit that “connects Citizen Philanthropists to the poorest of the poor communities around the world.” What’s a “Citizen Philantrhopist?” It’s someone who isn’t happy just making a donation, but wants to do more. They don’t have to be rich, but they do have to be willing to dig in for the cause. Citizen Effect “allows people to identify a project they believe in, raise capital through a variety of innovative tools, and maintain a direct and lasting relationship with their partner communities.” Sounds like a good idea to me.

What Effect Will You Have?

The best way to get a feel for what Citizen Effect does is to read their How It Works page and then browse through their projects. In a lot of ways Citizen Effect feels like a microfinance site, but the objective is somewhat different. Still, you get to pick the projects that you support. You’re not just sending off your money into a big black hole. If you like the idea of “focusing on small, but high impact projects,” then you should check out Citizen Effect’s jobs, which are posted on Idealist. Right now they have a couple of opportunities available, and one seems well suited to new or recent grads: National Grassroots Organizer. It looks like a great opportunity, so check it out and see if it makes sense for you.
