Development and Fundraising Internships

“WGBH is the perfect place to learn about the world of development and fundraising—from nonprofit membership marketing to high-end philanthropy. If you want a career in this field, there’s nowhere better to start out.” – Local Development Intern

As a publicly funded nonprofit, WGBH relies on the generosity of the public we serve. We strive to connect with our community, demonstrate the value and impact of our programs and services, and bring in the funding that fuels our public service mission. That funding comes from individuals ($50-a-year members as well as million-dollar philanthropists), private foundations, and corporations here in New England and across the US. As an intern working with our Development and Fundraising teams, you’ll learn what it takes to bring in the support that keeps a nonprofit humming.
