Project need

We're a new non-profit. We just received our 501(c)(3) and are looking to expand our program. We need help to fund the program's initiatives. We're in need of an experienced non-profit grant writer, who's familiar with the arts and education. We're based in New York City. We have projects, volunteers and an infrastructure lined up and we're in need of funding, to provide assets and resources as we mentor and develop artists. We're making our first steps into sustainability, right now. The right candidate will bring their experience in the non-profit sector and help us guide the growth of our program, to help establish and develop it as a resource for artists, for many years to come. We want to sustain its continued growth, to serve the artist community, locally and elsewhere.

Organization's mission
