Internship Program, Fall 2018 The candidate will work with the Development/Strategic Planning Internship. The interns learn many of the basic skills it takes to become a development professional in a progressive nonprofit from a front-row seat. The work of the Development team requires constant communication with all departments, and interns will be exposed to people and work being done across the organization. They are involved in all core activities of the team and are assigned day-to-day activities to help integrate them into the work. These may include managing donor database; staying up-to-date on the activities of the organization's various policy teams; researching prospective donors across all fundraising channels; assisting with meetings, events, and fundraisers; and other duties as assigned. Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for the website. Law students are considered. Note: Part-time students are accepted, but interns must be able to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week. Duration: September to December Application Deadline: July 1, 2018.
