As usual, we note that the UNF is proud of their excellent benefit package, and they (and we) encourage you to apply by June 10.

How about a job learning fundraising game at a venerable Washington institution? We’ve got you covered with this Assistant, Corporate & Foundation Relations opportunity with the Kennedy Center.
