Development and Fundraising Internship
This internship will support the Development Team in a wide variety of ways leading up to each of the above events and campaigns. Some of those include soliciting auction items, database entry, pairing up families and donors, recruiting book buds readers, etc. Each semester’s internship will look different based on what is happening inside the Development Department at that time of year; however, each Internship will provide a comprehensive experience in the arena of nonprofit fundraising & development.
