The Center for Public Integrity, a Pulitzer Prize-winning nonprofit news organization focused on inequality, seeks a Membership Editor to oversee  the growth and retention of our individual donor membership through outreach, special engagement opportunities, social media initiatives, newsletter efforts and content curation.
