$1 Million. 10 Winners. One Year to Shape LA.
Submissions open on February 28th!
Our mission at the Goldhirsh Foundation is to identify the brightest emerging talent and plug them into the tools to best support their success. We fund social innovation efforts across these three areas: opportunity, sustainability, and activation and awareness, with a particular focus on Los Angeles. The largest initiative of the Goldhirsh Foundation is LA2050, which is driving and tracking progress toward a shared vision for the future of Los Angeles. LA2050 seeks to engage and activate Angelenos to shape the future of the region and make LA the best place to learn, create, play, connect, and live by the year 2050.
To help achieve our mission, we would like to add a paid digital content intern to our team for the fall semester. We’re looking for someone who loves creating engaging content, is driven, dynamic, creative, passionate about all things Los Angeles, and can dedicate 15-30 hours over at least three days per week to working with us. The ideal start date is the week of January 7th, ending in late May. There is an opportunity for this internship to be extended.
