Development/Special Events Paid Internship – Fall 2022


The innovative and exciting education and community engagement programs the Center offers would not be possible without charitable contributions from the community. The Development Department manages these important relationships with donors.  The Development Department intern will assist several teams within the Development Department to help reach fundraising goals including Individual Giving, Grants & Foundations, Support Groups, Corporate Relations, and Special Events. The Development intern will gain experience in the non-profit world and support the team in raising $10+ million annually. Responsibilities will include creating and editing proposals and letters, donor mailings, general research, stewardship phone calls and helping with special events such as opening night dinners, Dance Series Cast Parties, Broadway Series Behind the Scenes events and fundraising galas and dinners.
