Creative Time



Our Development Department oversees all fundraising, cultivation and stewardship of our donors and grant-funders. As a Development Intern, you can expect to conduct research on individual and corporate sponsorship; assist with event planning for some of our largest cultivation events including our annual gala; draft text, design proposals, and coordinate grant schedules and materials; and work with the larger Creative Time team to indicate project-related funding needs. If you want to get to know New York’s movers, shakers, and grantmakers, while learning the ins-and-outs of fundraising, the Development department is for you.
