In January 2010, I began an internship at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Museum in New York City. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is the nonprofit organization that owns and operates the New York museum and its affiliate museums around the world. I work within the Foundation's Development Department, focusing on Membership and Individual Development. The following report includes an overview of the organization, a description of my role as an intern within the Development Department, my analysis of the administration of the organization, and my recommendations for the organization that I have developed over the course of my service, which will conclude in April 2010.
