Funders' Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) is Seeking Interns!

Established in 1983, the Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) exists to promote civic participation as a key to making our democracy work. We serve leaders in the philanthropic community working to further this vision with heightened attention to issues of equity and historically disenfranchised and under-represented communities. Our members support nonpartisan efforts to engage voters, eliminate structural barriers to voting, advance reforms to improve government and electoral systems, and inspire public involvement in civic life. 

If interested, please send a one-page cover letter, a resume and three references to info@funderscommittee.org with “Operations + Development Internship” in the subject line by September 11, 2017. Your cover letter must address why you are interested in interning at FCCP. A phone and/or in-person interview might be required.
