Washington Environmental Council is seeking an intern to support our fundraising team, primarily focusing on event and data support and donor research.
We offer an exciting and fast-paced work environment with an opportunity for learning and strengthening a multitude of real-life, workplace skills. This internship requires a highly motivated and detail-oriented person who is interested in events and/or development work and has some experience with data entry, Excel, event planning and internet research.
Washington Environmental Council (WEC) drives positive change to solve our state’s most pressing environmental challenges. For over 50 years, we have been a respected leader for environmental protection in the state, securing laws and policies that safeguard the health of our families and our environment. Our current program areas are: Acting for Climate and Preventing Fossil Fuel Expansion, Protecting and Restoring Puget Sound, and Sustaining our Evergreen Forests. We collaborate with partners and work with impacted communities to galvanize support and effectively advocate for change with key decision makers and leaders.
Washington Conservation Voters (WCV) is the statewide political voice for the environment. We work to elect environmentally responsible candidates to state and local offices. Working with allies in the community, we advocate for strong environmental policies and hold our elected officials accountable during the legislative session. Through our political work, we are strengthening laws that safeguard the health of our communities, the beauty of our state and our economic future.
By effectively combining the policy expertise of WEC with the political expertise of WCV, we have reshaped how we make environmental progress in Washington State. While the organizations are independent, we work very closely together on appropriate projects. Combined, we have a staff of 30-plus and work in a LEED-certified building in downtown Seattle with a view of Elliott Bay. We offer competitive salaries, good benefits, and the opportunity to make a difference.
