San Francisco Ballet Summer Internships – June-August, 2019

Institutional Giving: Under supervision, the Institutional Giving Intern will perform a range of administrative and development related tasks to support institutional donor relationships. The intern will draft highly customized donor correspondence, proposals, and reports; facilitate and track donor stewardship activities; and coordinate sponsor recognition and benefit fulfillment as needed. The supervisor may assign special projects as needed. The intern may occasionally be asked to provide support at evening or weekend events. San Francisco Ballet internships are unpaid and are for college credit, $25 travel stipend per week. Please send resume (cover letter optional) to eluu@sfballet.org (Elizabeth Luu, Associate Director of Development, Institutional Giving). Subject Line: [SUMMER 2019] Institutional Giving Internship Application 

Membership: Under supervision, the Membership Intern will assist the Development Office in its review and potential overhaul of its donor membership program. The Membership Intern will initially map a process to research—via web, in person meetings and phone calls—and document donor benefit offerings of peer institutions, both in the dance field as well as in other performing arts, such as theater, symphony, and opera. The data gathered will come from local, national and perhaps even international institutions. At the end of their internship, the Membership Intern will present to the Development team of 20 their recommended program changes, all designed to increase donor acquisition and retention, and net revenue. An assessment of the cost to implement and deliver proposed benefits will be a critical part of the research process. Please send resume and cover letter to Laurel Skehen at lskehen@sfballet.org

Flyaway Productions presents: The Wait Room / April 19–27 / Downtown San Francisco / Free Performances / Flyaway Productions, an apparatus-based dance company directed by Jo Kreiter (who choreographed for BDP 2015), premieres this performance installation that exposes the physical, psychic, and emotional burden of incarceration for women with imprisoned loved ones. Via a large, rolling set to evoke a prison visiting room, the project invokes the balancing act women have to maintain when stripped of emotional and economic support from their partners and family. Witness this powerful cast of dance performers, including TDPS Office Manager and alum Megan Lowe
