Some may describe the non-profit world as slow moving. It’s funny to think that a world filled with progressives isn’t really all that progressive when it comes to its own practices. Things are changing, and more and more organizations being run like startups, but there are bigger picture issues that need to be addressed to help the non-profit world move forward. That’s what the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy does and has been doing for more than 35 years. They’re a Washington, DC based non-profit that serves “as the country’s independent watchdog of foundations.” In other words, they promote “philanthropy that serves the public good, is responsive to people and communities with the least wealth and opportunity, and is held accountable to the highest standards of integrity and openness.”
The NCRP’s main activities are research and advocacy, and both are done with the goal of making non-profits more effective at helping the people who need help the most. The best way to get a better feel for what the NCRP actually does is to look over on their ongoing initiatives and read through their publications. You may also want to take a look at their list of Partners & Members so that you understand whom they’re working with. If it all looks good, then you should visit the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Communications/Development Assistant and a Field Assistant. Both positions look like good fits for a new or recent grad.
