Planned Giving Coordinator
The Public Interest Network is seeking a Coordinator for our Planned Giving Program, which has a mission to raise money through bequests and other legacy gifts. By growing our planned giving program, we will raise significant additional funds as baby boomers pass down over $50 trillion in the greatest intergenerational transfer of wealth in U.S history. In addition, we aim to deepen our members’ affinity to network organizations by giving them the opportunity to leave the legacy of a better world to future generations.
The Public Interest Network operates more than a dozen organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to social change. These groups include U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, and the National Environmental Law Center and encompass 400-plus staff. We tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our country today, such as delivering clean air, clean water and a livable climate to the next generation; transforming our energy and transportation systems for the 21st century; growing food in ways that leave both people and the planet healthier; and responding to the worst public health crisis in a century.
Over the past 45 years, our mission-driven, results-oriented approach has won hundreds of victories. In just the past few years, we helped convince California, New Mexico, Washington state, Maine and Virginia to commit to 100% carbon-free energy, and Maryland and Maine to ban the single-use plastic foam products that are polluting our planet. But there's more to do.
In order to achieve these results, the groups in The Public Interest Network need a strong backup staff to provide the resources, guidance, and infrastructure it takes to make progress on these issues.
