15 Nonprofit Organizations That Hire for Remote Jobs


Nonprofit Organizations with Flexible Jobs

If you are the kind of person who enjoys helping others, supporting a cause, or otherwise doing something beneficial for the world, working for a nonprofit may be an excellent choice for you.

If you’re also on the hunt for work-life balance, you are in luck! There are many remote nonprofit jobs.

Nonprofits exist to serve the common good of society in some way, often through religious, literary, scientific, charitable, or educational means.

The defining characteristic of a nonprofit is that all profits are used to further the cause of the organization, not to pay owners or investors. Although the nonprofit itself is not making a profit, employees are compensated with monetary and non-monetary benefits. Work-life balance is valued by many nonprofits and work flexibility is common.

If you want to make a difference in the world while maintaining work-life balance, finding a remote job with a nonprofit organization may be perfect for you.
