The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition seeks a Development Fundraising Intern who is interested in applying their knowledge of nonprofit management, sociology, political science, communications, English, or other similar field to help grow our fundraising efforts. This is a remote work position with some flexibility of work hours and length of the internship within the Summer semester. This intern must be available to start the internship the week of May 9, 2022 and work in-person on the evening of May 19. The Development Fundraising Intern will have significant opportunities to learn about entering and succeeding in the world of philanthropy and nonprofit fundraising.


The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition envisions an Atlanta where everyone moves safely, easily, and sustainably throughout the city. Our mission is to reclaim Atlanta’s streets as safe, inclusive, and thriving spaces for people to ride, walk, and roll. Our advocacy and programs focus on creating a safe, equitable, and sustainable mobility experience in Atlanta for people who walk, use wheelchairs, take transit, bike, skate, ride scooters, etc. We support people who currently use these modes and strive to inspire more people to adopt sustainable mobility in their transportation routines. The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition aims to foster an environment that recognizes, respects, and values different backgrounds and talents and actively works toward racial equity and social justice.


The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition development team helps the organization grow inclusively and sustainably, and positions us to fulfill our strategic goals. The Development Fundraising Intern will:

Our growing team of six enjoys forging change in the culture and infrastructure of the city we love, and we are looking for a community-minded Atlantan who is on board with our vision, mission, and guiding principles to join our team. 

Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is a remote workplace.
