Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation
102 W Third St, Suite 1110
DescriptionThe Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation (ZSR) is committed to improving the quality of life of all North Carolinians. Grounded in the forward-thinking values of its founding family members, for 75 years ZSR has invested in nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to building inclusive, equitable and vibrant communities. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $350 million to organizations in all 100 counties across the state. You can learn more about ZSR at zsr.org.
In an effort to diversify the pool of young nonprofit professionals in North Carolina, ZSR established the Non-Profit Internship Program (NPIP) in 2011. Each summer, the program awards 20 college and university students enrolled in four-year institutions across the state with paid internships at ZSR-grantee organizations that are working to advance the Foundation’s values in the areas of Community Economic Development, Public Education, Social Justice & Equity, Environment, and/or Strengthening Democracy.
Applications will be entirely online and available at http://zsr.org/grants-programs/nonprofit-internship-program in early December 2013 and are due by 11:59PM on February 3, 2014. A résumé is required with each application. For questions, please contact Ben Barge at email@example.com.
