Interning at a Non-profit Organization; #1

COMD 4900 Internship

Interviewing and my role within a non-profit organizationĀ 

For the internship I was put in contact with my supervisor and I would be interning at a non-profit organization. After a remote interview, he talked to me about how this non-profit that generates income for other non-profits by having content created for them and then promoted for them as well. They have a platform where they Ā generate revenue through running a sweepstakes where people can donate money and be eligible to win a $4,000 grand prize as well as having $1,000 donated to a charity of their choice when/if they win.Ā 

This organization primarily partners with other non-profits and holds events that help these other non-profits generate donations and funds through cause marketing. Cause marketing involves a relationship between a for-profit business and a non-profit organization for a common benefit. This works well for businesses as it makes them seem charitable and socially responsible and non-profits are able to get funding.
