Job Description:

Seeking a fundraiser to help raise matching funds for a Knight Arts Challenge project funded by the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation. The project is an Afro-Cuban dance project to take place in late September 2018 (8 days, one performance a day) and in February 2019 (also 8 days, one performance a day). We are seeking $6,000 in individual contributions (through GoFundMe or IndieGoGo), $5,000 in corporate & small business contributions (some businesses have already expressed interest in becoming sponsors), $5,000 in foundation grants, and $2,750 through fundraising events. I am not a non-profit, but can receive tax-deductible donations through the Miami Foundation, which serves as our fiscal sponsor. 

In order to receive $25,000 in matching funds, we must raise these funds by no later than October of 2018. Unfortunately, we do not receive these funds UNTIL we raise the matching funds. In the budget, payment to the fundraiser is $5,000, but I am willing to negotiate a higher fee (based on commission), if we can exceed our fundraising goals. Obviously, we would have to wait until we get the matching funds in order to pay you (I apologize about this). 

For the project, you will be asked to:
- Develop (with guidance from me, the producer) and manage a fundraising campaign using IndieGogo or GoFundMe, and promote it on social media (we will have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts).
- Develop a sponsorship package and assist me (the producer) in securing corporate and small business sponsorships
- Gather logos/marketing material and maintain communication with sponsors/funders
- Identify foundation grants to which we should apply, and communicate with me about grant requirements & deadlines (I will write narrative and prepare budget).
- Assist me in planning the fundraising aspects of 1-2 fundraiser events (e.g., donation levels, format of event, etc.)

I am looking for someone with:
- strong writing skills
- experience managing a successful fundraising campaign using GoFundMe, IndieGogo or Kickstarter
- strong project management/organizational skills
- interest in the project itself

Extra pluses for someone who:
- has been involved in fundraising for a dance-related project
- has experience working on raising funds for an African diasporic arts project
