American Transplant Foundation Mission and Purpose
American Transplant Foundation is a dynamic, energetic, fast paced nonprofit that works to increase the donation of organs and tissue to reduce the growing list of men, women and children who are awaiting a lifesaving transplant. We are currently seeking a dynamic, self-starter to assist with event planning efforts. This internship is for an individual interested in learning more about nonprofit fundraising and event planning. An internship with the Foundation is a way to gain valuable professional work experience, learn a wide range of skill sets, and further a lifesaving mission.
