Description

SCOPE OF SERVICES

Whippoorwill Arts seeks a qualified person or firm to provide grant writing services to the organization. As a relatively new non-profit organization that has only recently begun receiving grant funding, Whippoorwill Arts is seeking a partner to proactively help it increase and optimize funding from institutional sources. Scope of services to include:

  • Continuing and improving the current grant process, systems, and reporting for active and in-progress grants;
  • Researching funding opportunities from private foundations, government funders, and corporations to identify alignment with Whippoorwill Arts programs in each of its locations across the country;
  • Drafting and submitting LOIs and grant proposals in a timely, thorough, and compelling manner to ensure and grow funding for Whippoorwill Arts programs; 
  • Tracking all grant applications and awards, and liaising with Whippoorwill Arts finance and program staff to ensure grant contracts, reports, and other necessary paperwork is filed in a timely manner.
  • Drafting other communications as needed and appropriate on behalf of organizational leadership to help establish or build relationships with potential or existing funders;
  • Serving as advisor to Whippoorwill Arts staff and Board members regarding funding strategies, including collecting and sharing feedback from funders regarding Whippoorwill Arts programs and grant applications.

QUALIFICATIONS

Whippoorwill Arts is seeking an individual or firm with at least 3-5 years of successful experience in securing funding from institutional sources, and knowledge of best practices in researching, writing, and reporting on grants from a variety of sources. As an organization that does not fit in the traditional “box” of an arts non-profit, we are seeking someone who is interested in helping us advocate with funders and find non-traditional funding opportunities, as well as pursuing the more traditional open application opportunities. Preference given to those with experience and a personal connection to music or the arts, as well as those based in one of the geographic areas currently served by Whippoorwill Arts (San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Nashville, Colorado).

CONTRACT

This is a part-time contract, generally ranging from 5 - 15 hours/month with possibility for growth as additional funding opportunities are identified. 


TO EXPRESS INTEREST

Please send a letter of interest outlining your experience and qualifications, along with a C.V. or summary of relevant experience to manager@whippoorwillarts.org.
