We seek to connect you to employers.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2008
EmploymentCrossing.com on Monday launched FundRaisingCrossing.com, a job opening research site that seeks to consolidate every single job in the fundraising industry. FundRaisingCrossing.com gathers and lists every single job it can find from employer websites, association websites and other job boards. By providing job seekers a "one stop shop" for fundraising jobs, FundRaisingCrossing.com can save job seekers hundreds of hours of unnecessary research by showing them every fundraising job in the market at once.
According to the latest Association of Fundraising Professionals' (AFP) Compensation and Benefits Study, the average salary for charitable fundraisers in the United States increased to $72,683 in 2007 and 2008--a two percent increase from the average in 2006. A fundraising career is definitely a lucrative one, and fundraising job openings are growing. FundraisingCrossing offers an exclusive online job-posting service unlike any other. It specializes in finding fundraising job announcements from every website the site can find in the areas of nonprofit organizations, hospitals, as well as others In addition, it checks local and regional publications. It aims to show its members jobs no one else knows about.
"In this market it is extremely hard to get a job with a recruiter, and recruiters typically work with very few companies," says Harrison Barnes, founder and CEO of FundraisingCrossing. "Job openings that are not widely known or publicized are the easiest jobs to get."
Despite the recession, various charitable organizations are planning to increase their grant making in 2008. For example, according to a survey by the Foundation Center, 54% of charities are planning to increase their grant making in 2008. Additionally, the survey reports that 33% of foundations have stepped up their giving to help people affected by the economy in 2008.
FundraisingCrossing, an EmploymentCrossing (http://www.employmentcrossing.com)] website, was recently launched to assist fundraising professionals with sorting out the opportunities that they may not find out about otherwise. Unlike other job boards, the site focuses solely on fundraising jobs, and it doesn't charge employers to post jobs.
"FundraisingCrossing is a research company that works for job seekers. We have developed a database of thousands of fundraising jobs," Barnes says. "We seek to connect you to employers."
