Philanthropy and fundraising involve more than just charity galas for endangered animals and donating to your alma mater. This past summer I interned at Changing Our World, a firm that does fundraising management for non-profits. As part of my work I conducted massive amounts of research, which constitutes a massive part of giving and fundraising and learned the ins and outs of the system. I also learned how to do everything from reading tax forms filed by foundations to determining criterion for giving to doing business development research. The most wonderful portion of this experience was the opportunity for mentorship. Working directly with senior management led to clearer lines of communication and the ability to grow as a budding professional.
