Strategic Partnerships Director

Do you have experience helping news organizations connect to other news outlets or NGOs to get stories out to a wider audience? Our nonprofit, quickly growing news organization, dedicated to honestly getting to the bottom of the great issues of our time, seeks experienced partnership strategists to develop, manage and track different kinds of partnering initiatives. If you specialize in NGO or news organization outreach, we'd love to hear from you. 

Who We Are

We are a remarkable news organization and community that is making a difference, setting a new standard, and innovating on every front. A nonprofit that accepts no advertising, WhoWhatWhy is staffed largely with skilled volunteers dedicated to elevating public awareness and fostering a more vigorous democracy.  


You will work remotely and on your own schedule, though we require a minimum commitment of 5-8 hours a week.  Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we communicate mostly through email. All staff are required to respond to emails on a daily basis.

To Apply

Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that outlines your experience and skillset, and shows that you have studied what we do at WhoWhatWhy. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions. You must confirm your understanding that this is a volunteer position.

In your cover letter, at the top, write "Mencken."
