Internship posted by: goods for good
Posted on: January 11, 2013
goods for good (GFG) is a nonprofit organization that supports orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi, Africa. We provide critical material support to Malawian community centers (shoes, school supplies and school uniforms) to meet the immediate needs of children, while simultaneously building the long- term capacity of communities so that they can sustainable care for children in perpetuity. In 2012 GFG launched a Community Enterprise program, which builds small businesses in partnership with local communities to fund their orphan services. The program will revolutionize orphan care to ensure our communities can independently support local children. For more information visit www.goodsforgood.org
The grant-writing intern is responsible for writing and completing grant applications, as well as concept notes, to foundation and corporate sources, preselected by the Development Department. The intern will perform prospect research on foundations and corporations and record that information in the organizational database. The intern will also be responsible to maintain current records in database and the shared drive, including grant tracking and reporting. The intern will work closely with the Development Manager and Development Fellow and also assist with other fundraising projects as requested. This is an unpaid internship, but school credit is available.
