[The internship below is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. 132 undergraduate interns will participate in the program this year at more than 100 performing, presenting, and literary nonprofit arts organizations and municipal arts agencies throughout LA County. In addition to their full-time 10 week paid internship, interns will participate in educational events as part of the program, which is funded by the Getty Foundation. The educational events are designed to provide interns with a broader perspective of the vibrant arts and cultural landscape of the County. For additional information on the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the Arts Internship Program, and for a complete list of all the internships offered this summer, visit the Arts Commission website at www.lacountyarts.org.]
The Development Intern will have the exciting opportunity to play an integral role in the success of LA Opera’s fundraising activities, which will support the productions and community engagement events during the 2016/17 season. Working with the Institutional Giving Team, the Development Intern’s primary projects will be to assist with the completion of an annual report that will be distributed to foundation, government, corporate, and individual donors and to complete corporate sponsorship fulfillment packages. Both projects will allow the intern to work with every LA Opera department and gain an understanding of the role that each department plays in a major nonprofit arts organization. Additional activities may include: conducting donor prospect research, drafting solicitation letters and grant proposal templates, assisting with mailings, and helping with special events and other administrative activities. An interest in opera and/or arts administration is a plus.
The prospective intern should have strong writing, editing, analytical, and organizations skills. Strong computer skills are also required, including experience with internet research, Windows operating system, and MS Office Programs (particularly Word and PowerPoint). Previous database experience and/or fundraising experience are helpful, but not necessary. Candidates should possess excellent communications skills and should have a friendly and professional demeanor. An interest in opera, music, and/or arts administration is a plus.
