Internships in Development and Fundraising
Prescott Circus Theatre is looking for 1-2 volunteer interns to help with the “backstage” work of fundraising for our organization. These positions will provide someone with experience in small nonprofit development and management, grant research and writing, and event production.
Duties may include:
• Researching new foundations to apply for funding
• Researching trends and data to support proposals
• Help with editing of proposals and reports
• Help in writing minor proposals and reports
• Event planning and production
• Depending on experience, design invitations and promotional materials
• Provide support with mailings and invitations

Interns are expected to commit to 2 – 6 hours / week (flexible), Monday – Friday. Some of the work will take place at our West Oakland office in Oakland and some can be done at intern’s discretion.
We are seeking motivated and responsible college students or young professionals looking to gain experience working with a small nonprofit. Prior interning experience is not a requirement, but we do require you to have a strong work ethic and willingness to learn.
Interested candidates should have good communication skills, comfortable with word processing and spread sheet programs (Word / Excel / etc.), and have regular access to a computer.
