     mission: to strengthen, nurture, and promote the professional
     not-for-profit American theatre. TCG serves theatre artists and
     organizations by recognizing and encouraging activism, artistry,
     advocacy, and global citizenship. We provide professional
     development for theatre leaders, research and data analysis for
     the field, advocacy on the federal level, as well as the
     publication of American Theatre magazine, ARTSEARCH, and works
     from our award-winning book program.

     benefits and perks. Some of these include: the unique experience
     of interacting with the national theatre community, networking
     opportunities at our field-wide convenings, practical experience
     in a variety of professional disciplines, free copies of American
     Theatre magazine, free books and plays, and discount ticket

     Development Intern
     Intern will learn how a non-profit raises money from different
     funders and the different approach to each (institutional funders
     versus individuals). In addition, the intern will learn the
     format for a grant proposal for institutional funders
     (foundations, corporations, and governmental agencies), how to
     conduct prospect research on potential funders, and the complete
     process of cultivating donors from research to initial approach
     to applying to processing grants and submitting reports. The
     ideal candidate is an organized self-starter with office
     experience; fluent in MS Word, Excel, and Outlook; and interested
     in non-profit arts fundraising.
