About Inside the Orchestra:

Inside the Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The mission of Inside the Orchestra (ISO) is to bring orchestra music to young children in the greater Denver metropolitan community, cultivating music appreciation and enhancing their education through an engaging first-hand experience with the orchestra.

Providing music for schools and children throughout Denver is what we are all about. The ISO firmly believes that exposing children to the arts at a young age strengthens not only that child, but the community as well. For many, our concerts are their first exposure to orchestra music. We understand the importance of making it a positive experience.

Our unique format of surrounding the kids with musicians goes a long way to achieving this goal. In addition, we hire professional musicians who have expertise with their instruments as well as an ability to interact with our young audiences. In an effort to be inclusive of all children, ISO underwrites these concerts, thus providing an experience that is otherwise unavailable in many communities.

• Provide administrative support for development activities associated with foundation, individual and corporate fundraising
• Ensure proper and timely entry of gifts; create and distribute timely, accurate and thoughtful gift-acknowledgement letters

• Communicate with donors, corporations and foundations via email, postal mail and phone calls

The development intern will be a highly motivated team-player and organized self-starter, with the ability to follow through on several projects simultaneously. The ideal candidate will have superior written skills with strong attention to detail, and excellent verbal skills to answer and respond professionally to requests for information from donors and staff. In addition to gift processing and list management, responsibilities may include correspondence, mass mailings, material preparation and assembly, research, and project coordination.
