The National MS Society, Northern California Chapter is looking for an energetic, responsible and organized individual to join the Development Team. The Big Day of Giving Internship is an exciting position, working independently, along with team assistance to create and execute a successful strategy for the participation by the Chapter in Sacramento’s local 24-hour day of giving campaign.

More than $6 million in funds were raised by numerous local nonprofit organizations during the 2016 Big Day of Giving. Last year, the Northern California Chapter of the MS Society brought in $3,000 and we hope to grow that exponentially with the help of a dedicated and highly-organized addition to the team.

This Big Day of Giving Internship will be unpaid and part-time, with much professional experience to be gained and eligibility for class credit.
