MANAGER OF INSTITUTIONAL GIVING

The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York) – a leading service and advocacy organization for New York City’s more than 400 nonprofit theatres – seeks a motivated, detail-oriented Development professional to join the organization as its Manager of Institutional Giving. This position reports to the Director of Development and will play a critical role in shaping and leading A.R.T./New York as we enter an exciting phase of our organizational development.

The Manager of Institutional Giving must have a strong commitment to our mission and core values, as well as a passion to help grow our contributed resources.  The successful candidate should be capable of successfully working with a diverse staff, Board, and membership. They must also possess strong interpersonal skills and attention to detail. This is an ideal position for an energetic self-starter with drive and flexibility who seeks to expand their grant writing skills. The Manager of Institutional Giving must be highly organized and able to self-manage, as well as prioritize projects. Note that we provide professional development opportunities for its staff to broaden their knowledge and increase their skill sets.  Our FY 18 Annual Budget is $4.3 million (55% of which is derived from contributed sources).

We have grown considerably over the past few years, and are launching a number of new initiatives in grant-making and education programs designed to address the needs of the field.  We were selected by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to administer its New York Theatre Program; which provides critical funding to 40-50 theatre companies.  This year, we launched Diversifying Our Organizations, an effort to strengthen and diversify nonprofit theatres and their Boards through cohort-based education and field research; A.R.T./New York Access, a program designed to educate the field and create access for artists, administrators, and audience members with disabilities; and Body Autonomy, a new set of programs and partnerships that strive to end harassment in the theatre profession.  Last year, we opened the A.R.T./New York Theatres, 2 intimate, flexible spaces on 10th Ave. and W 53rd St.

A.R.T./New York strives to create a friendly environment staffed by people who love the theatre, have a sense of humor and celebrate diversity in all of its forms.
