MRC Fundraising and Development Paid Internship - Spring 2022

Want to learn more about fundraising, donor relations, and development? The Media Research Center is looking for interns in our development department! Our competitive internships pay $11/hr

As a Development intern, you will gain valuable experience in fundraising, events preparation and planning, and database administration. The Media Research Center has a complex database of supporters who give at the individual and foundation level: regularly and once-in-a-lifetime. Development interns learn the operations of a nonprofit that keep its programs functioning: it is the forward facing department to all supporters.

Qualifications of an MRC Development intern:

  • Ability to present ideas concisely and clearly in writing
  • A passion for nonprofit work and a desire to promote MRC’s mission to supporters
  • A willingness to work with donors, both by phone and email in order to meet needs
  • Possible experience in fundraising, grant-writing, or database maintenance would be helpful, but not required

The Media Research Center is a 501(c)3 research and education organization that has been the nation’s premier media watchdog since 1987. We are committed to neutralizing left-wing bias in the news media and popular culture. We do this through journalism (, analysis and research (NewsBusters), blogs and video (MRCTV), and a complex grassroots and marketing initiative. Because we are a nonprofit, we are careful about our resources, and one of our greatest resources is a team of interns who are excited to learn and promote our work.

This internship is designed for conservative-minded students and recent graduates. We hire interns during three semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer).
