Internship opportunities

Development intern

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated interns to join our Development team to help produce Venice Family Clinic’s virtual events and research prospective donors.

Our Development team at the Clinic raises over $10M each year to provide access to comprehensive and quality health care to nearly 28,000 low-income men, women, and children. Be part of a passionate team that helps our shared community!

Interns will help support our annual fundraising campaigns, donor data research and management, and general admin and operational duties. Individuals with an interest in art, community relations, event production, fundraising, and marketing are encouraged to apply.
