LENGTH:3 MONTHS | COMPENSATION:$12,500
Harlem Stage has received a grant from the New York City Theater Sub-district Council that will support three-month general management fellowships with a focus on institutional operations and three-month development fellowships with a focus on Foundation Corporate and Individual fundraising to aspiring arts professionals of color. Check out the call for applications below!
The scope of responsibilities will be adjusted on a case-by-case basis, depending on the skill sets the fellow brings to the position and would like to continue to develop, as well as the current needs of the institution.
The Development Fellow will assist the development department:
- planning and implementation of all department strategies;
- conducting online research of prospective institutional funders and individual donors;
- drafting qualitative and quantitative reports;
- implementing special events, donor relations and community outreach;
- compiling, organizing, and mining donor data to create donor analytics and reports; and
- writing donor communications, including grant proposals and reports.
This fellow will join the three-person development team and will be under the mentorship and supervision of Executive Director, Pat Cruz.
Mentors will conduct entrance interviews to assess the fellows’ aspirational career goals, areas for development and prior experience in the field, if any. Mentors will also hold bi-weekly check-in meetings and measure fellows’ progress against the growth objectives established in entrance interviews. Mentors will accompany fellows at two (2) networking events to introduce them to other arts professionals, affinity groups and arts institutions. At the end of the fellowship, mentors will conduct exit interviews that will include an overall assessment of the fellows’ progress and updated goals.
Mentors will reach out to fellows six months after the completion of their fellowships to evaluate the effectiveness of the program, assess how their aspirational career goals have evolved since the fellows' exit interviews and connect them with additional resources. The program's ability to build equity and diversity in the arts hinges on our mentors' sustained engagement with former fellows.
