Time Frame: Fall/Winter 2014 through spring 2015, 10-15 hours per week. 

The Development Intern is responsible for assisting with the essential development functions of the Paramount Theatre, including fundraising and communications. The Paramount and Stateside Theatres are Congress Avenue’s historic jewels. These two historic theatres currently strive to bring the widest variety of entertainment to as many people as possible. 

The Development Intern must be a strong communicator and highly organized, in order to keep large amounts of information in useful order, and must have a strong service-oriented background. This intern works with the Development team in meeting the development and fundraising needs of the Paramount. Tasks include maintaining and using Raiser’s Edge (the Paramount’s donor database software), organizing and updating donor files, researching grants and foundations, supporting event staff, contacting donors as necessary, and other administrative tasks. Development interns may also take tasks from other departments, primarily Marketing, as necessary and allowed by their schedule. The Development Internship is an unpaid position. The Development Intern will gain exciting access to a working, professional theatre in a beautiful historic building, in addition to potential opportunities for attendance at special events when available.
