The Door County Community Foundation is offering an opportunity for a motivated college student (or high school student that will be a senior this Fall) to learn more about the philanthropic world by working as our Summer Intern. It’s ideal for anyone interested in pursuing a career in non-profit organizations, human services, or government.

This internship opportunity is designed to provide the young person an invaluable educational experience while still performing real work tasks for the Community Foundation.

You’ll learn more about:

  • How foundations evaluate grant applications submitted by non-profit organizations
  • The mechanics of the granting process
  • Developing relationships with our friends and donors
  • How foundations bring people together to accomplish great things for the community

You’ll help us by:

  •  Contacting charities to update our grantee due diligence files
  • Updating and maintaining our donor files
  • Assisting with special events, mailings, and other donor activities

We expect that you are:

  •  Conscientious and detail-oriented
  • Willing to maintain a high level of personal and professional integrity
  • Able to keep confidential all donor and grantee information
  • Capable of working with others to accomplish the Community Foundation’s mission
  • Interested in having fun and enjoying your colleagues and work

  • 20 hours per week, during the regular business day, through your summer break
  • Specific days and/or hours worked is negotiable
