At FotoDC, my job is to keep the office running smoothly and to engage with our sponsors, funders, donors and strategic partners. I write and edit grants, sponsorship proposals, agreements, and more. I also do a lot of our communications through Mailchimp, including email blasts and FotoNews. It’s a fast-paced but very rewarding position that I love because of the relationship-building involved. One of the most gratifying elements of my job is working with a group of exceptionally talented and committed interns. When I first moved to DC, I spent a year as a Development Fellow with a nonprofit and both the position and my mentors there completely changed my life. Now, I get to be on the other end of the relationship, which is a wonderful feeling – not to mention that each of the FotoDC interns are 100% integral to the success of our FotoWeekDC Festival, and the office as a whole.
