Description
IT4Causes is a local startup nonprofit agency. Our mission is to provide stable, secure, and sustainable information technology solutions that enable other nonprofit organizations to focus on their missions and serve their clients better, with lower total cost to their organization and the community. We are currently looking for University of Richmond students who want to use their Community Work Study grants to help local nonprofits succeed by using and developing best practices in business management.

As a nonprofit management intern, you'll work with staff and volunteers to help our growing agency in many different ways, including accounting / bookkeeping, marketing and branding, business development, events, and partner agency management. You'll help us use QuickBooks to manage our finances, and you'll learn to use Salesforce to manage our pipeline of prospective clients to close deals and increase our impact in the RVA nonprofit community.  We can tailor the position to meet your goals and gain experience in business development and/or accounting. Our small staff means you'll get to know all parts of our business, and because we serve other nonprofits, you'll get to meet leaders at many other charities in RVA. We'll provide a ton of networking opportunities, and you'll work with us to build capacity in not just one agency but in many organizations around the region.

Much of this work can be performed remotely at the student's convenience.  We can arrange for IT4Causes staff to meet students on campus weekly to go over work assignments and provide guidance.  IT4Causes has a very robust and effective internship program that has partnered with UofR for many years. Many of our interns are also paired with mentors to help discuss careers and professional development.
To help with our accounting processes, a strong preference will be given to candidates who have prior experience using QuickBooks to manage accounts for a business of any size. We will also consider candidates that have managed or helped managed the books for a business in other tools.

For students interested in Business Development, we prefer candidates with an interest or experience in managing a sales funnel, assisting in deal flow, and reaching out to potential new clients.

If a student doesn't current possess these skills but has a very high interest in either of these areas, we can also provide in-person and computer-based training to help motivated students develop these skills.
As a startup, we offer high growth potential. Expectations are an average of 5-10 hours per week per school semester, with flexibility to accommodate exams and breaks. Where possible, we prefer to use the same interns for multiple semesters and through the summer.

We're happy to work with volunteers, but we can likely arrange it as a paid position if you're eligible for Federal Work Study and Bonner Scholar program.  We can also turn this into a full-time, paid summer position using your Richmond Fellowship grant opportunity.
