Organization Overview

Waterkeeper Alliance is a global environmental organization uniting more than 200 Waterkeeper organizations around the world and focusing citizen advocacy on the issues that affect our waterways, from pollution to climate change. Waterkeepers patrol more than 1.5 million square miles of watersheds in the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.

The primary responsibilities of the Database Support Intern are to enter and maintain records in our donor database, DonorPerfect.

The database of the organization houses the relationships and support history of our organization, the source for recording and maximizing collected information to increase support, awareness, and education outreach efforts. With a donor database supported by SofterWare and a growing initiative unfolding in our development goals, we are looking for an intern interested in creative partnership around database maintenance, who is capable of handling detail oriented assignments.


  • Database entry, and maintenance of records.
  • Follow-up, and partnership, with our Development Team to ensure accurate recordkeeping.
  • Report analysis and cross-referencing multiple reports.
  • Additional projects will allow for creative partnership, to include donor relations as it relates to Direct Mail, Events Planning, Major Gifts, Foundations, Donor Development, and support with Education and Outreach efforts.

Waterkeeper Alliance has actively developed and implemented advocacy efforts at the state and federal level, and continues expanding internationally to combat adverse water quality issues. The opportunity will allow the right candidate a unique access to the back-office functionality of a movement with more than a decade invested in environmental advocacy.

If you’re ready to interface with a challenging database, enjoy problem solving, creative troubleshooting, and connect with the vision of Waterkeeper Alliance, this is an opportunity for you!


Graduate or current student with attention to detail, moderate experience with MS Excel, DonorPerfect (preferred, but not mandatory), and familiarity with importing, exporting, and filtering large amounts of data.
