The Music Center is one of the largest and most highly regarded performing arts centers in the country. As L.A.’s premier performing arts destination, The Music Center convenes artists, communities and ideas with the goal of deepening the cultural lives of every resident in Los Angeles County. The non-profit performing arts organization has two divisions: The Music Center Arts (TMC Arts) and The Music Center Operations (TMC Ops). TMC Arts, The Music Center’s programming engine, provides year-round programming inside The Music Center’s four theatres, on The Music Center Plaza, outside at Grand Park—a 12-acre adjacent green space—and in schools and other locations all over Los Angeles County. TMC Arts presents world-class dance with Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center, free and low-cost public concerts and events, as well as K–12 arts education programs. TMC Ops manages the theatres, the Plaza and Grand Park on behalf of the County of Los Angeles. The Music Center is also home to four renowned resident companies—Center Theatre Group, Los Angeles Master Chorale, LA Opera and LA Phil.
The Music Center’s Advancement Department has an immediate opening for a Grant Writer.
The Music Center’ s Grant Writer shares responsibility with the Institutional Giving team to grow support for The Music Center through powerful messaging, research, stewardship and development of new institutional funders. The Grant Writer is an integral member of the Advancement team reporting to the Senior Director of Institutional Giving and will share responsibility for achieving the Advancement Department’s total annual revenue goal of $10,000,000, in addition to supporting The Music Center’s current and future capital campaigns.
The Grant Writer must possess outstanding written and oral communication skills to effectively communicate The Music Center’s vision and its impact in the community, especially in the areas of education and community engagement. While results-oriented, the Grant Writer must also be able to take initiative, follow through and be a problem-solver. Attention to detail, flexibility and organized time management are essential; a passion for the performing arts is desired.
