We’re thrilled that people and organizations all across the globe are using Idealist to post and find opportunities, further their careers, and turn their good intentions into action. Thanks for helping us build this amazing community!

To make our network even stronger, this year we’re reaching out to nonprofit communities around the U.S., state by state, and inviting them to make the most of of our site.

Starting today, we’re heading to the lovely state of Colorado: land of the Rocky Mountains, the Aspen Filmfest, and John Denver. Many organizations are already a part of our community—like HistoriCorpsColorado Wildlife Heritage Foundation, and Charter School Growth Fund—but we know there are more out there. That’s where you come in!

Help us go the extra mile

This month, posting Colorado-based jobs will be free. FREE! Our normal $70 price is pretty low to begin with, but we’re excited to offer this sweet deal as we aim to bring you every nonprofit, government, and social enterprise job in the state. (Yes, we know it’s a lofty goal, but why not dream big?)

If you’re thinking about how awesome this is for your organization, don’t wait another minute.

Or if you’re just a superfan of Colorado and want to see it represented on Idealist more, there’s no shortage of ways you can help.

  • Tell your family, friends, colleagues, networks, and the organizations in your area who you think could benefit.
  • If you’re already a member of our community, log in to your Idealist account and spread the Colorado love by connecting with others.
  • If you’re not yet on Idealist, create a profile.

Over the coming weeks we’ll also be showcasing people and organizations in Colorado doing great work, featuring everything from advice of experienced social entrepreneurs to innovations in food rescue to volunteering after retirement.

What’s your Colorado story? Tell us below! And thanks for helping us spread the word.


Fun fact: Our very own April Greene hails from Colorado. Some of her favorite things from the state include: the Rockies, yucca, cute snowboarders, delicious sunsets, Garden of the Gods, microbreweries, the Olympic Training Center, and Rocky Ford melons.

    Thank you Idealist for recognizing the endless amount of inspiring and generous organizations in Colorado.

    I am writing you on behalf of the Tibetan Village Project, a non-profit, non-political organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development while preserving the rich cultural heritage of Tibet. While our vision is centered on uplifting and transforming life on the Tibetan plateau, the Colorado community has been our headquarters office for the last 20 years.

    Most recently, we held a forum centered on increasing social entrepreneurship in Tibet at Naropa University called, “Compassion in Action”. Various NGO, entrepreneurs, and experts attended to discuss their own approaches to social entrepreneurship as a vehicle to addressing needs in Tibet . Several key members were from the Colorado area.

    Quite simply put, without the dedication and support from the Colorado community the numerous lives we’ve impacted on the plateau would not be impossible.

    Angela: Thank you for writing, and sharing an overview of your interesting work! It’s so great to hear that Colorado has made an impact on your organization. We think it is such a cool, innovative state, and we’re glad to be talking about it and helping spotlight all that’s being done. Thank you for being a part of it!


  3. [...] I talked up my intern work during the process. For my particular situation, my past jobs have some relevance to my current work (writing skills are necessary for many jobs), but during the interview, I tried to focus more on what I had learned at the internship and my experiences there. I was able to talk about how Idealist is working to engage more with followers and supporters on LinkedIn and the social media work we were doing around our state-by-state coverage. [...]
