Institute for Philanthropy:
History / Archivist Research Intern
Established in 2000, the Institute for Philanthropy is the world’s leader in the field of international donor education. An independent, non-profit organisation, with offices now in London and New York, the Institute works closely with a global network of wealthy individuals and families, and in partnership with private companies, trusts, foundations and schools.
The successful candidate for this internship post will work with the UK Deputy Director to produce a detailed and thorough account of the Institute’s first few years and the activity that led up to its creation. The work will be carried out in London by research in archive material and recorded interview with the key people involved in the Institute’s inception. Particular attention will be paid to the US – UK – Antipodean partnership and vision of founding individuals. The work will result in a monograph to be published and available on the Institute’s website.
