The PETA Foundation's Major Gifts
Department works diligently behind the scenes to give each PETA department all
the funding that it needs to help animals. Identifying prospective donors;
encouraging, negotiating, and
facilitating monetary and property donations; promoting planned giving (such
as the inclusion of PETA in estate plans); and working to cultivate and
maintain relationships with donors are just some of the ways that this hands-on, exciting department
works to maximize fundraising potential.
A leader among nonprofits with regard to efficient use of funds, PETA
is dedicated to making every dollar count. We're proud of the fact that we
funnel almost 85 percent of our funding directly back into programs to help
animals. The Major Gifts Department of the PETA
Foundation makes PETA's work possible by securing the funding that PETA needs
for its livesaving campaigns.
The Foundation's Major Gifts Department is one of the reasons that we're
able to continue our round-the-clock work to help animals who are suffering and
dying in laboratories, on factory farms, in the fur industry, in circuses, and
in other forms of "entertainment." This dynamic and vital department
is looking for outgoing and motivated professionals for a variety of positions.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
