Stage posté par The Pachamama Alliance

Fundraising is a critical function for every non-profit and this internship is a great way to gain experience in the field. This is an opportunity to learn the infrastructure of fundraising with the new paradigm at the organization founded by the author of "The Soul of Money". Applicants accepted to these positions will learn the basics and mechanics of fundraising "from the heart" within our Development Team.
Our preference is for the interns to commit to work for 15-20 hours a week for 3-5 months. We can be flexible with both the number of hours and the length of stay but we have some ambitious goals and would like to create projects to hand off to the interns over a period of time. Course credit can also be obtained through this internship. The work would take place during regular business hours here in our Presidio office. And please note that this internship is not limited to students! In these internships, the Interns will learn the theory of how non-profits raise money and see firsthand how it is done at The Pachamama Alliance.
The Pachamama Alliance partners with the indigenous Achuar of the Ecuador Amazon to preserve their land and culture from the threat of development and resource extraction. Using insights gained from this work, we deliver workshops around the world designed to inspire and educate individuals everywhere to shift the dream of the modern world that drives the resource extraction that threatens the Achuar. Through this work we aim to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling human presence on this planet. You can learn more about our work with the Achuar and our educational programs at pachamama.org.
