We’re a global Christian humanitarian organization.

For nearly 70 years, World Vision has followed Jesus’ example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. We serve every child regardless of faith.
We are looking for an exceptional fundraiser who enjoys networking and locating new giving prospects.
