About Street Symphony:
Street Symphony is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that utilizes music to create opportunities of human connection to homeless and incarcerated communities through workshops, events, and one-on-one musical instruction. These musical programs are held at Skid Row clinics, homeless shelters, permanent supportive housing agencies, and LA County jails.
Our Mission: Street Symphony harnesses the convening power of music to invite connection and relationship.
Ideal Candidate: Street Symphony is seeking a part time team member who presents an invaluable work ethic, positive attitude, passion, and empathy. Our organization is powered by individuals willing to apply their strengths as needed with the willingness to learn from and grow with the organization. We hope to find an individual who will meet our preferred requirements, but more importantly, brings their unique gifts and an energetic drive complementary to our organization's culture.
The Grants & Development Manager supports the Operations Manager and Artistic Director in managing and growing our grants portfolio and supporting our individual donor strategy. This position will be primarily 70% grants management and 30% individual donor cultivation. This unique individual is responsible for developing and continuously improving the narrative for our grant applications and reports and stewarding our foundation and institutional donors. While less important, the ideal candidate will also support developing/stewarding donor relationships and increasing overall revenue growth. This position requires the use of relationship management systems (Kindful) to develop analytical reports and a deeper understanding of our current donor base. In addition to supporting our grants fundraising, the ideal candidate bolster our existing individual fundraising efforts while imagining and implementing new strategies to attract new individual donors. The Grants & Development Manager works collaboratively with the team to ensure that our donor-facing storytelling reflects our high quality programs and encourages giving at the small and mid sized levels to support the organization’s mission and vision.
