The Development Intern will learn about all aspects of fundraising for nonprofits, through grant writing, prospect research, database management, gift recording and processing, accounting, special-events planning and oversight, and donor relations. The successful candidate will have an interest in human rights and literature, excellent research and writing skills, will be detail-oriented and organized, and able to work independently. Interns will gain an overview of the literary and publishing communities as well as valuable insight into nonprofit operations and institutional planning and growth. They will have the opportunity to help out and attend PEN events, and gain exposure to the wide range of PEN’s work.
A commitment of 15 hours a week (within normal business hours) is required. This is an unpaid position, though a local travel stipend is available. PEN internships are also eligible for college credit. Please email a cover letter and resume to jasmine[at]pen.org.
