Database Internship

Global Minnesota uses the Raiser’s Edge database software to track our relationships with donors and other contacts. We’re seeking an intern to assist our Database Coordinator in (1) recording new donations and contacts as they arise, (2) creating queries to glean particular information from the database, and (3) editing existing records to improve accuracy and consistency.

Experience with Raiser’s Edge in particular is not required; in fact, for those interested in nonprofit development work, this internship is a great opportunity to gain marketable skills in this widely-used software. Database experience of some kind, however, is preferred.
