HERE Fundraising Fellow

HERE Arts Center
New York, NY 10013

Job Details


HERE is looking for a fundraising fellow to assist the busy day-to-day operations of a three-member Development Department. Responsibilities will include donor data management and relations, generating donation receipts and funder communications, assisting with individual donor campaigns and special events, and, for the right candidate, grant writing and reporting. 


Candidates must possess strong writing skills, be detail oriented, be capable of staying focused in a busy environment, and thrive at working independently. This is a great opportunity for those looking to garner experience with non-profit arts fundraising, and to understand the relationship between financial development and season programming.


Fellows at HERE are at the center of the very busy operation of a non-profit theatre organization and all producing activities. Although the Fundraising Fellow will concentrate on the daily operations of the development department, they may be asked to assist in other areas of HERE’s operations throughout the fellowship. Fellows are often given the opportunity to work with HERE’s resident artists on their productions. They are also able see any HERE productions free of charge and have access to other perks that are made available to the HERE staff.


If interested, please send a résumé and letter of intent to Wei-ming Liu Egelman, Institutional Giving Manager, at [email protected]. For this position, you must be available to work 15-20 hours per week, from January through end of May 2019. A weekly stipend of $100 and school credits are available. 




Since 1993, HERE has been one of New York’s most prolific producing organizations, and today, it stands at the forefront of the city’s presenters of daring new hybrid art. HERE supports multidisciplinary work that does not fit into a conventional programming agenda. Our aesthetic represents the independent, the innovative, and the experimental: HERE has developed such acclaimed works as Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues; Basil Twist’s Symphonie Fantastique; Basil Twist and Joey Arias’ Arias with a Twist; Hazelle Goodman’s On Edge; Young Jean Lee’s Songs of The Dragons Flying To Heaven; Trey Lyford & Geoff Sobelle’s all wear bowlers; Faye Driscoll’s 837 Venice Boulevard; Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge, and original musical and dance works created and directed by HERE Co-Founder and Artistic Director Kristin Marting.The New York Times has called HERE “one of the most unusual arts spaces in New York and possibly the model for the cutting-edge arts spaces of tomorrow.” Indeed, HERE has become successful at creating a new kind of arts enterprise—the collaborative multi-arts center. In 25 years, we’ve supported over 14,000 artists and attracted over 950,000 arts patrons. We aim to integrate art into daily life and engage our community’s needs and interests on as many different levels as possible in order to ensure our regular presence in their lives.
