Texas 4000 is a small Austin based non-profit dedicated to fighting cancer by spreading Hope, Knowledge, and Charity. Each year a group of University of Texas students raise money in this fight by riding their bikes from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. During the ride, they stop to share their inspirational stories along with powerful life-saving information about cancer prevention to towns big and small. The Texas 4000 family is not only comprised of these students, but the countless individuals who support this cause, such as the board of directors, sponsors, grantees, host families, donors and volunteers.

We are currently looking for passionate individuals with eagerness to learn about and help an amazing cause. These five internship opportunities will directly support the Texas 4000 Fundraising and Special Events programs, activities and projects, as well as provide administrative support to all areas within the organization as needed.

No matter what position you apply for, we ask that you exhibit some of the following traits:
• Ability to learn quickly and apply common sense to detailed yet straightforward instructions
• Excellent organization, communication, writing and problem solving skills
• Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
• Ability to multi-task and handle multiple projects while staying organized;
• Work well with our team of volunteers and riders or solo when needed
10-20 hours/week minimum desired. Internships will span from August 24th through December 4th, 2014 (exact dates flexible).

The Grants intern will work closely with the Development & Program Director as well as the Executive Director. Daily tasks for this position include tasks such as researching potential grants, writing letters of interest and grant proposals, and managing the process of applying to granting organizations.

Prior experience with grant writing desired, but not required. Applicants should have strong writing skills, background or interest in the nonprofit sector, and the agency to lead and complete projects independently. Applicants for this position should submit a writing sample in addition to their other materials.
