Allie Withee, Project Coordination Intern with CCA Global Partners
Allie Withee spent her summer as a Project Coordination Intern at CCA Global Partners in Manchester. Allie’s main project was for the Mission Builders Co-op. She developed a plan to provide fundraising support for nonprofit organizations. She began the project by researching nonprofit fundraising software, interviewing local nonprofits to determine their needs, and researching the areas that the co-op could fulfill. The end result was a proposal and summary of what Mission Builders is and what it could do. Allie’s work has potential for building the foundation for an entire new division for CCA Global. CEO Howard Brodsky showed her work to the NH Charitable Foundation and her plan could change the future of the non-profit sector. He also says “in the past 14 years of all my interns, Allie is not only the intern of the year, but should be the intern of the century.”
