Question 2 of 31
At Alzheimer's Association we want to work with individuals who value volunteerism. Walk me through your volunteer experience.
Professional Answers Preview
"walk the walk"
"I am an avid volunteer at the local animal shelter, and have been for the last 5 years. Animal care is very important to me which is why I am also a foster parent to animals who need to be re-homed but are having a tough time being placed. I believe that all living creatures should be loved and well cared for."
When applying for a nonprofit position you should be prepared to talk about the ways in which you give back to others, and how you contribute to your community. Show the interviewer that you can "walk the walk".

Question 4 of 31
How do you encourage generosity in others; whether that be their ability to contribute financially, or with their time?
Professional Answers Preview
"I spent a few years in a business development role prior to starting my career in nonprofit fund development. I am well connected and persuasive when it comes to gaining financial and time commitments from others."
"I believe that people will readily contribute financially, or with their time, when the cause is close to them or when they fully understand the impact that their contribution will make. I am open with individuals by showing them the impact they can make. This approach generally solicits very positive results."
The interviewer would like to know that you are able to be a strong employee when it comes to fundraising and recruiting for Alzheimer's Association. Talk to the interviewer about your ability to ask for donations, close a deal, or gain a commitment of time from volunteers.

Question 5 of 31
At Alzheimer's Association we prefer to hire those who have a penchant for sales and fundraising. Have you ever had a fundraising target from a previous nonprofit employer?
Professional Answers Preview
"I have had multiple sales positions and have also owned my own business in the past. I fully understand that a nonprofit organization still has a bottom line. In my last position with ABC, I was tasked with raising $500K per quarter in charitable contributions."
"In my most recent position I have had multiple targets to reach; whether they be geared towards dollars, volunteer hours, or regular sponsorship's. I am always on top of my KPI's and targets, setting clear and achievable milestones for myself."
Many people enter the nonprofit sector because they want to help people. What they do not realize is that nonprofit organizations also have funding needs that have to be met. Assure the interviewer that you will not shy away from aggressive fundraising targets.
