Many of us want to make a lasting impact during our careers. We want to work for organizations that align with our values and make a difference. Writing and editing for a non-profit organization, whether it be paid or volunteer, can be a very worthwhile and satisfying endeavor. It can also be incredibly challenging. There are often funding and/or staff shortages along with deeper issues related to branding, vision, and dealing with a range of opinions, not to mention donor fatigue.
