Internship Opportunity: Cliff Dwellers

Currently, the Cliff Dwellers are seeking an intern with a passion for local cultural initiatives and the desire to gain experience in supporting a non-profit on a new fundraising initiative.

In 1907, Chicago author Hamlin Garland and friends founded the Attic Club, which two years later was re-named The Cliff Dwellers. The Cliff Dwellers is a private club for members who are either professionally engaged in literature, painting, music, architecture, sculpture, or one of the allied arts, or who support the fine arts and the performing arts.

The Club, located in the 22nd floor penthouse of the former BorgWarner building at the southwest corner of Michigan Avenue at Adams Street, is next door to Symphony Center and overlooks Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago.

We offer programs and art exhibits for our members and their guests, and support local younger artists and performers through our Artists-in-Residence (A-I-R) program.  Members can also reserve Club space for private parties and dinners.

 

Qualifications: 

High-performing undergrad or graduate student with experience working in the non-profit sector and a desire to grow the arts and culture landscape of Chicago.

 

Duties: 

Reporting to Ed Gordon and Chris Vinyard, this internship position will support in administrative tasks at the Cliff Dwellers office space at 200 S Michigan Avenue. This includes:

Support in the tracking of gifts
Learning about the organizational structure and management system of Cliff Dwellers
Supporting the Full-Time staff in the procurement of 2020 Endowment
Participating in and supporting in art and cultural events towards the final mission of the Cliff Dwellers
