Elements of this campaign will include connecting with Masterworks’ existing donors, fostering relationships with potential donors, and creating communications materials for print and web distribution. It will also include identifying and engaging with potential community partners for Masterworks activities in their 2021 award year.
The Development and Outreach Intern has an anticipated engagement timeline of October 26th, 2020 to December 18th, 2020, with an expected workload of 35 hours per week (timeline negotiable) and a rate of pay of $13 hour. The physical office from which Masterworks normally operates remains closed due to COVID-19, so you will need access to a computer and stable internet connection to participate in regular online staff meetings and project check-ins. The ideal candidate will also be a creative thinker with strong time-management skills.
