I was responsible for...
event planning, support emails, representing foundation at events, legislative projects, checklist projects for organ donors and recipients
working on an event that raised over $70,000. Being a part of such a big event has given me hope that I can work on an event that raises even more money.
That non-profit work is not easy but very rewarding. Since ATF is a non-government funded foundation, all of our money comes from private donors. To maintain a successful non-profit it is important to continually raise money.
Advice for others...
Chose an internship that will push you outside of your comfort zone. Having the opportunity to travel also is a bonus. By doing an internship that you think will be difficult is going to teach you some great lessons and grow your knowledge in the event management field.
