Hello I am Tomas Kurtz and was a Becky’s Fund Program and Development Intern for the fall of 2017. It is hard for me to believe that my internship is coming to a close…time really does fly. First, I want to start and thank Becky Lee and the Becky’s Fund organization, partners and friends for making these past few months so memorable. Also, thank you to the 3 other fall interns – we made quite a good team if I do say so myself.
Before starting this internship I had general interest in nonprofit organizations and this interest has been further cemented from my time at Becky’s Fund. I really got to witness how much work and effort goes into running a nonprofit, but also how much good an organization can do for individuals who might be in tough situations. Becky’s Fund provides an incredible resource to the community and I am thankful for my time as an intern here.
From working with the Men of Code program to preparing for 2017 Walk This Way, and so much else in-between, I can definitely say it’s been a busy few months but that is a good thing. One of my favorite memories from this past fall is when we participated in a spinning fundraiser back in September – that was the longest 45 minutes of my life.
In all, it has been a wonderful past couple of months and I hope to stay connected with Becky’s Fund in the future. Thanks again to Becky for all that you do.
