“As a Global Studies major aiming to go into fundraising for an international nonprofit organization, having experience with the strategic aspect of individual donor solicitation is vital. I have had experience working directly with lower level donors, writing grant applications, and even drafting fundraising plans, but I have yet to experience strategizing major donor solicitation and cultivation…being able to demonstrate that I have previously represented a major nonprofit to high-scale donors will give me a competitive edge.”
