Description

NLC Development Intern
New Leaders Council is seeking a Development Intern to assist the National Development Director in building NLC’s fundraising capacity through research and donor relations. NLC Interns should be available for 14-18 hours a week. This is an unpaid internship, however local travel assistance is available. Graduating seniors and students receiving educational credit are strongly encouraged to apply.

Who We’re Looking For
A Development Intern must be an innovative, rising star servant-leader who is passionate about civic engagement, possesses detail oriented research skills, and has a strong familiarity with politics and government.
New Leaders Council is young, energetic, and very diverse. It is a progressive organization dedicated to building next generation leaders across the country. NLC and its executive team is very focused, and we strive to make decisions quickly and execute with efficiency. We want interns who share these values and the hard-charging style. Our National Board Chairman Chris Kelly embodies these ideals as an entrepreneur, activist, and mentor.

Responsibilities

How To Apply
In order to apply, please email your resume, cover letter, and contact information for two references to NLC National Development Director, Matt Tompkins at resumes@newleaderscouncil.org with Development Intern in the subject line.

Requirements

Role and Responsibilities
The Development Intern plays an important role by providing administrative support to the Development Office. Responsibilities will be divided between the Development Interns to capitalize on their talents and develop their finance skills. Among these responsibilities, Development Interns will be particularly focused on chapter fundraising efforts and implementation of small donor identification, development, and tracking.

In a typical day, a Development Intern could find themselves doing any of the following:
• Process donations and prepare acknowledgement letters and other correspondence;
• Maintain foundation, corporation and individual donor file;
• Contact potential donor prospects
• Coordinate travel for the Development operation
• Continually update and correct database records;
• Conduct state filing research to identify potential targets.
• Coordinate production and mailing of spring and year-end appeal letters;
• Track tax credit donations in the database and keep a file for each tax credit donor;
• Send appropriate tax documentation to process credits to donors;

NLC uses NationBuilder, NGP and QuickBooks; knowledge of these is greatly preferred but will train the right candidate.
