Welcomes returning citizens
We are seeking a motivated Racial Equity Intern on behalf of The Presser Foundation who is ready to apply knowledge and processes in a real-world environment. The Intern will support the Executive Director, Teresa Rodgers, and the Trustees of the Foundation in aligning our individual, grantmaking, and the Centering Racial Equity working group’s work plans. The internship will provide our Racial Equity Intern with opportunities to develop a broad understanding of the Foundation’s efforts to center racial equity in all of our work and how such efforts might be used to help our grantees and strategic partners to become more equitable, inclusive and impactful.
The Intern will assist in writing a report, conducting research, analyzing data, and making recommendations to assist efforts to center racial equity in all that we do. This will be a valuable experience for any student pursuing a career in philanthropy, music, and/or social justice and anti-racism.
Internship Duties and Responsibilities
For over 10 years, harp-weaver has been privileged to work with clients who are thoughtful, challenging, engaging and committed to their unique missions. Though they range in size and structure, focus and intention, we are humbled by what unites them all – their drive and determination for their charitable giving to have an impact. We consider ourselves fortunate to be the catalyst that drives their collaboration and giving.
harp-weaver provides the management and administration of The Presser Foundation. The Presser Foundation was formally established in 1939 under various deeds of trust of the late Theodore Presser. In the charter of incorporation, the Foundation’s purposes are set forth to promote primarily the cause of musical education and musical philanthropy. While the Foundation’s approaches to accomplishing its mission have evolved, it has provided much needed funding to further the cause of music both nationally and locally in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
