About the Job
Enterprise Community Loan Fund (ECLF) is one of the largest and oldest Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) in the country, headquartered in Columbia, MD, with a national reach. Over the last 25+ years, ECLF has invested over $2 billion in affordable housing and other community facilities for low- and moderate-income families, with access to good jobs, quality schools, transportation, and healthy living environments.
ECLF is looking for a summer intern to meaningfully contribute to Enterprise’s impact investing reporting and communications efforts, targeted primarily to Enterprise’s investors, though materials will be tailored to a broader audience as well. Assignments will include the creation of impact reports through various mediums, clearly and compellingly translating investment data into profiles of impact, as well as reporting on key performance indicators for certain organizational efforts. The candidate will enjoy broad exposure and coordinate his/her work with various departments, including lenders, data experts, marketing professionals, and more.
Graduate or undergraduate students interested in sustainability, marketing, communications, impact investing, community development, and the like are encouraged to apply.
This is a paid summer internship from June-August 2021, 40 hours per week, likely to be remote given Enterprise’s ongoing work-from-home policy due to COVID-19. As such, applicants from anywhere I encouraged to apply.
