The Valerie Fund


June 2021 • Maplewood, NJ

What I liked

The Valerie Fund is a really small company. The Events & Communications team is comprised of five people in total, so, as an intern in this small company, I benefited from many hands-on experiences. I was directly involved in planning The Valerie Fund's annual fundraisers. I was also able to attend all of the events, allowing me to see how all of our hard work paid off. This is a really great internship to learn more about the inner workings of a non-profit, as well as gain event planning and fundraising experiences.

What I wish was different

In an ideal world, we wouldn't have been in an pandemic and would have been in the office more often. However, we made it work and I still got a lot of this experiences from a hybrid experience.


Don't be afraid to make suggestions for improvements. In such a small company, your ideas are really valued!
