The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening relationships between patients and their clinical caregivers; our programs are run in hospitals and healthcare sites across the country. The Schwartz Center relies on charitable contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations to carry out its work, so our development staff is engaged in a variety of fundraising activities. Development Interns are an essential part of the development team. They provide day-to-day office support for fundraising activities, work extensively with the fundraising database, and assist in preparations for mailings and events.
