The DNC is currently looking for Spring and Summer Finance Intern Applicants!
The DNC Finance Interns are part of the Democratic National Committee’s National Finance Team. The Finance Department oversees the fundraising operations at the DNC and is responsible for raising the funds that fuel Democratic Party activities in all 50 states. An intern in finance will learn the ins and outs of political fundraising. Interns will assist finance staff in the planning and execution of DNC fundraisers across the country.
