Work with MSF
Recruitment information sessions will be held in these cities between April and June 2010:
All prospective medical and non-medical aid workers are invited to a presentation and question-and-answer session to learn more about how to become part of MSF’s field work. A human resources officer will be on hand to discuss requirements and the recruitment process. If none of the locations listed above are convenient for you, please consider participating in one of the recruitment webinars that are scheduled regularly. For dates and details, and to register for these events, visit the MSF website.
MSF is in urgent need of French-speaking staff to provide assistance in countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, Niger, and Haiti, where some of MSF’s largest projects are located. “Successful applicants who meet MSF’s criteria and speak French will be eligible for more positions, and will usually be matched more quickly with an assignment,” notes MSF-USA Field Human Resources Director Nick Lawson. “Nearly half of MSF’s available field positions are in francophone countries.” If you are interested in contributing your professional—and French—skills to MSF’s medical humanitarian work, we encourage you to visit the MSF website for more information about MSF recruitment.
JOIN OUR LEGACY SOCIETY
Our Legacy Society is a group of special supporters who have chosen to remember MSF in their wills or through other estate gifts, helping to ensure our ability to respond to emergencies and to deliver vital humanitarian aid for years to come. We hope you will consider joining our Legacy Society by including MSF in your will or living trust. We also accept beneficiary designations on retirement plans, brokerage accounts, and life insurance policies. If you have already included MSF in you estate plans, please let us know so we can thank you and include you in the Legacy Society. To learn more about naming MSF in your will or other planned giving opportunities, please contact Beth Golden, planned giving officer at (212) 655-3771 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Strengthen Your Commitment
MSF would like to thank all of our donors who have pledged to our Multiyear Initiative. With their annual commitments of $5,000 or more, these generous supporters provide MSF with predictable and sustainable funds, enabling us to respond effectively and rapidly to emergencies around the world and helping us to better plan for the future. To date, we have received pledges totaling over $20 million towards the Initiative. To find out how you can participate, please contact Mary Sexton, director of major gifts, at (212) 655-3781 or email@example.com.
