In the style of a radio show The Three Wise Guys from Friends Talking Faith on WMFE, 90.7 FM, our guest “wise guys” will discuss what every development professional should know when asking for money from people of faith. 

 

The theology, philosophy, and the “do’s” and “don’ts” of the ask. We’ll “pitch the topic,” then open up the “phone lines” to hear from our listeners (you the audience). Join us for a lively and insightful “live show!”

Summer Internship in Fundraising – 3 Students Selected

The Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Florida Chapter and the Rollins College Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center co-founded the internship program in 2013 in response to a lack of experienced fundraising professionals who can meet the demand.

This year the selection committee has selected three University of Central Florida (UCF) undergraduate students and three Central Florida nonprofit agencies to benefit from this unique collaboration that actually rewards participating agencies that complete the internship with $1,000 grants.

The Summer Internship in Fundraising is a first-in-the-nation competitive internship program designed to strengthen the fund development capacity of Central Florida nonprofit agencies while providing a platform for college students to explore the development profession as a way for achieving nonprofit career goals.

The three students – Brinique Rahming, Christian Rich Bond  and Katelynn Craft – have goals of pursuing careers in the nonprofit sector. Rahming received a Bachelor of Arts in public administration with a minor in nonprofit management this spring. She is a member of the AFP Collegiate Chapter at UCF and wants to use the internship to hone her fundraising skills.

Bond and Craft, both juniors, plan to graduate in 2015. Bond is an Orlando-native and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing and entrepreneurial management. Craft is earning a Bachelor of Social Work with honors, pursuing a minor in nonprofit management and is an AFP Collegiate Chapter member.

Congratulations to Brinique, Christian and Katelynn!
