Fall Development Intern

State Policy Network is seeking a Fall Development Intern to assist our development department at our fast-paced, growing office located in Rosslyn. This position is ideal for a passionate, pro-liberty junior, senior, or recent grad who is looking to learn more about non-profit fund-raising, development and the state-based free market think tank network.

Real victories are being had in the states, but without financial resources to continue these successes, we would not get very far in securing freedom. The SPN development team works hard to identify new potential donors and cultivate existing relationships with our generous supporters. The development intern will take away a greater understanding of non-profit development and a better understanding of the state-based free market think tank network. This is a paid internship looking to begin immediately

The Development Intern will assist with:

  • Assistance with logistics of SPN's 23rd Annual Meeting
  • Direct mail processing
  • Analysis of direct mail results
  • Donor research
  • Support with donor correspondence and cultivation
  • Other projects as needed

The ideal candidate will have the following attributes:

  • Interest in limited government and free market policy
  • Preference in someone with experience working with databases, particularly fundraising programs (DonorPerfect, Raiser’s Edge)
  • Very accurate and detail-oriented
  • Highly organized
  • Someone unintimidated by a virtual work environment
  • Strong work ethic, self-starter
  • Confidentiality
  • Flexible and eager to learn
  • Team player with upbeat personality
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to be a self-starter
