7. Position Type: Select Internship.

Fill in the fields and click “Submit Opportunity”. Your information will automatically be posted for the students to view.

After You Post Your Opportunity:
Students will review the list of opportunities and contact you to request interviews. You can select the students you wish to interview, and arrange a date and time. Interviews and internships should be outside class time, if possible (Fridays, weekends, or evenings).

Once you and the student agree on a match, please inform Humber so they can track progress.

You will be asked to provide feedback to the students and Humber at the midway point and the end of the internship.

The program covers annual and capital campaigns, grant writing, donor research, major individual donors, donor relationship management, planned giving, direct marketing, sponsorship, project management, financial management, volunteer coordination, The Raiser’s Edge and Income Manager software, special events, ethics, charity tax law, prospect research, and just about every conceivable form of fundraising. Every year the class organizes real special events as part of the program.
