The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor is offering a development internship program that is designed to give students real-world experience working in development jobs and the chance to meet major donors and network with alumni. Its goals are lofty: to create a pipeline of young people for the development profession; diversify the fund-raising field; and foster a sense of philanthropy among students so that even the ones who choose another career path will see the value in giving time and money to their alma mater. Chrissi Rawak, an assistant vice president in the development office at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, believes that training students in fund raising and development is more a necessity than a luxury in today's tight philanthropy market, where every college seems to be in a capital campaign and universities compete fiercely with other nonprofit organizations and international institutions for the most talented fund raisers.
