Summer Internship in Fundraising


The deadline to apply was April 2, 2013. 

The Summer Internship in Fundraising is designed for advancing students’ knowledge of the development function and expanding Central Florida agencies’ development capacity. It is a collaborative effort between the Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Florida Chapter and the Rollins College Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center.

The PAID internship program came about because too few students at institutions of higher learning are aware that development can be a fulfilling career within the nonprofit sector and/or a path to becoming the executive director of a nonprofit agency.

The 300-hour paid internship (ten weeks at 30-hours a week) provides Central Florida students with direct experience in the development profession, especially working with the annual fund. An intern is matched with an agency in the area of their interest for a 10-week summer internship and is paid $10 an hour. AFP makes a one-time grant of $1,000 to the agency to offset salary expense.

The 2013 pilot program will match six students with six agencies all chosen from the pool of applicants. To be considered, complete this application form and submit it by the deadline.
