David Dorfman Dance is seeking a part-time Fundraising and Administrative Coordinator to assist our Artistic Director and Company Manager in achieving our goals as we enter our 30th Anniversary Season with a New York City premiere of our newest work, Aroundtown. While this is an entry level position, we hope to find a candidate who will grow with the organization, taking on a leadership role around fundraising, particularly individual cultivation, in the near future.
The Fundraising and Administrative Coordinator’s responsibilities will include:
Managing and updating the Artful.ly database;
Assisting our Fundraising Consultant with grant writing and management;
Coordination of individual giving programs, including assisting with fundraising events and crowdsourcing campaigns, with the support of our Fundraising Consultant;
Assisting our Company Manager with tasks as needed, including workshops, intensives, residencies, and administrative.
The position is 8 to 10 hours/week as needed, at an hourly rate of $12/hour. This position is mainly a remote position, with meetings as needed with New York City-based staff.
Applicants should have experience with the dance community, professional writing skills, organizational skills, and, ideally, experience coordinating events and/or performances.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples to Ashley Richard, Company Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, no phone inquiries.
