The Conseil des arts de Montréal, the Caisse Desjardins de la Culture, HEC Montréal and Université de Montréal are continuing to combine their efforts to promote Montreal arts organizations’ philanthropic activities and groom the next generation of philanthropy program managers.

This program provides paid and supervised internships for students enrolled in a Master’s program in cultural enterprise management (M.M.E.C.) at HEC Montréal, in a D.E.S.S. graduate program in cultural organization management at HEC Montréal or, in the Université de Montréal’s philanthropic management certificate program. The internship can be a part of a student’s workforce integration project and therefore qualifies for university credit. The student will be supervised by a lecturer from his or her university.

Duration

Over a six-month (26-week) period between January and July 2022, six paid internships will be offered with professional arts organizations, each of which will host one intern.

Depending on the targeted needs and the proposed internship mandate, organizations can choose between two internship durations:

24 hours a week, for a total of 624 hours

32 hours a week, for a total of 826 hours

The organization chooses the desired internship duration in its application. The organization must consider its ability to coach and supervise the intern for the number of hours selected and the type of internship mandate proposed in the application.

Three organizations will be selected for each option, for a total of six organizations funded under this program in 2022.

Grant use

The grant provides a salary of $20 an hour. The grant provided by the Conseil is applied as follows, according to the total number of internship hours selected:

Support during the internship

The hosting cost is the cost of purchasing computer equipment in order to make a place for the intern in the organization.

Every host organization receives an additional support budget of $1,500. This sum must be used during the internship, between January and July 2022. It is intended to meet specific support-related needs associated with the internship project. Examples include: 

Intern training

Attending conferences and presentations

Purchasing books and documents on philanthropy

Access to fundraising databanks

Support time with a consultant to assist with the internship mandate

Inviting a philanthropy expert to speak about the culture of giving to the team or Board of Directors

The cohort of interns and their supervisors will also be invited to attend meetings and workshops to further develop their philanthropy program management skills.
