Watch Andrea Smith, Managing Director of Major Gifts, Piedmont Healthcare Foundation, share how in her job as a fundraiser, she raises millions of dollars to support healthcare research and build healthcare facilities. She also gets to recruit volunteers to implement community health projects. For a girl interested in fund raising ideas, she suggests using your birthday as a way to encourage donations to an organization that you support. Instead of asking for presents, ask the people you invite to donate to charity. Another great way to support a cause it to volunteer your time for that charity.
