Membership and Individual Giving Intern (P/T), Spring 2020—Development

(Part-time, temporary, unpaid internship)

The Membership and Individual Giving intern provides essential support under the broader umbrella of Development. The Development department is responsible for fundraising and events, liaising with key stakeholders across all donor constituencies, and serving as the definitive link between Museum supporters, key community influencers, and our program and curatorial staff. Selected candidates have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in a fast-paced area of institutional development and be a part of many of the Museum’s key events. The intern provides general administrative assistance, particularly with membership mailings and appeals; supports special donor events including curator-led tours, opening receptions, and cultivation events; conducts research and planning for Museum Member programs; and helps with ongoing database entry and research projects. Potential to work with other teams may arise. Applicants should be detail-oriented and demonstrate dependability and a positive professional attitude. Ideal candidates will also have strong interpersonal and both written and oral communication skills. Experience with Microsoft Office suite is preferred. All interns also participate in a weekly professional development program consisting of panel discussions, workshops, and site visits that connect daily tasks with the Museum as a whole.

Compensation: This internship is unpaid; however, school credit may be earned.
