An internship at TechSoup is not just a learning experience; it is an opportunity to make a challenging and meaningful contribution. You will get to work on real world inspiring projects that drive goals and objectives.
At TechSoup, you’ll find the raw energy of a start-up, and extraordinary vision, and a group of brilliant, talented, quirky people who believe fiercely that the benefits of technology should be available to everyone.
We are a nonprofit organization that believes that technology is a powerful enabler for social change. Since 1987, we’ve assembled a worldwide network of individuals and organizations that share this conviction. This network – one that you likely belong to – includes foundations and corporations, governments and NGOs, social entrepreneurs and volunteers. Together, these unlikely allies have developed sustainable, community-driven technology solutions to meet today’s most urgent social challenges.
The Development Intern will maintain a pulse on the nonprofit sector by conducting funder research and writing internal concept ideas drawing on their knowledge and understanding of the field and internal TechSoup goals and projects.
All interns must be actively and presently enrolled an accredited college or university at an undergraduate or graduate level; have at least 1 year of experience in online research (nonprofit research, academic research, etc.); and have an interest in learning about the social sector, specifically an interest in learning about program development and grant writing for US and global programs.
Please note: this is a part-time (up to 25 hours per week), three-month internship located in the San Francisco office.
